Stanmore's Spinal Cord Injury Centre Gets Kranking

Aspire, a charity that supports people with spinal cord injuries in Stanmore, has installed four KRANKcycles in its gym to help people with limited or no lower body mobility still get a good workout. Introductory classes will be held on January 16, 2010 to demonstrate how the KRANKcycle can be used and how it will benefit its members.

The KRANKcycle has been brought to the UK by Matrix Fitness Systems and is the creation of Johnny G – the founder of Spinning. It involves rotating height adjustable cranks to provide a cardiovascular and upper-body workout.

The Krankcycles at Aspire are to be integrated into indoor cycling classes to create ‘Fusion’ classes, so that people of all abilities can train together, providing those with limited mobility another training and group exercise option. Aspire will be the first site in the UK to hold KRANKcycle Fusion classes.

“We introduced indoor cycling in 2009 and we were extremely excited when we heard that Kranking was coming to the UK. The KRANKcycle will allow wheel chair users to have an inclusive fitness class with those taking part in indoor cycling. Our aim is to make exercise as inclusive for our members as we can and we are thrilled to be getting training and expertise from the KRANKcycle team this week,” said Rosie Williams, Centre Manager at Aspire.
