If you look into the eyes of the athletes who compete in the Paralympics, it is easy to see the joy, excitement, and pure thrill of competition shining through. These athletes have found the fun in fitness. But for 54 million Americans with a disability, fitness centers are not a welcoming environment. There are few options for cardiovascular exercise if you are unable to utilize your lower body.
Thanks to Johnny G, the opportunities are not only boundless but they are challenging, fun, and soulful. Inclusive Fitness is a concept that encourages the industry to become all-encompassing by considering the needs of the physically challenged.
When purchased without a seat, the Krankcycle® is completely wheelchair accessible. For the first time, those without use of their legs due to central disabilities, spinal cord injuries and even those rehabilitating lower body injuries can perform an effective, fun cardiovascular workout. For the first time, wheelchair users and others with special needs can enjoy the camaraderie and motivation of exercising in a group fitness setting. Best of all, Kranking® presents the opportunity for wheelchair users to not only become indoor cycling enthusiasts, but it offers an unprecedented opportunity for becoming a Kranking Instructor.
Inclusive Fitness represents the "heart and soul" of Kranking.
