Cross Country & Track Cross Training

My students need stationary bicycles to enable cross-training for injury prevention, and cardiovascular conditioning during an injury period.

My Students

Student athletes at our school are economically and ethnically diverse. Nearly 60% of our population are economically challenged, and many of those students avoid participating in athletics, due to perceived financial limitations. Many of our students do not have a background in athletics and do not have family members involved in athletic activities. Most of our cross country runners have never run long distance prior to high school, and are unfamiliar with the benefits of cross training. A large part of coaching involves teaching runners how to stay healthy through diet, stretching, strength training, and injury prevention. As runners, an excellent cross-training activity is bicycling. We would like to provide our students the opportunity to cross train. Unfortunately, we do not have enough coaches to monitor off-campus bicycling, nor do we have a location on campus where students can ride a bicycle.

My Project

Many studies have shown the value of cross-training in athletic programs. Cross training not only builds balanced muscles, but also provides alternative cardiovascular conditioning in cases of injury. since most running injuries are aggravated by impact, bicycling provides a non-impact alternative. These stationary bicycles will enable injured runners to maintain cardiovascular conditioning, as well as provide cross training to assist in injury prevention and muscular balance.

Runners will be able to utilize these bicycles under safe supervision of the coaches in proximity of the remainder of the team.

The stands provide varied resistance for conditioning. The cruiser-style bicycles have comfortable seats so that runners will not need to have bicycling shorts.
