ASPIRING footballers kicked off their pre-season training with a competitive fitness programme used by professional athletes.
Youngsters from Thornaby and Ingleby Barwick Football Club (TIBS) were invited to WattCycle on Teesside Industrial Estate at the weekend to test out their endurance levels.
The Wattbikes are now becoming a common site among Rugby and Football Teams, endorsed by the all-conquering British cycling team as well as Manchester United, clubs are able to assess the pedal motion to highlight weaknesses in leg muscles and how power is distributed around the legs.
England and Manchester United are now using the Wattbikes as part of their pre-season training and general conditioning, so we wanted to give the young local lads a taste of how professional athletes train.
All the players really enjoyed the session and some of the parents got involved too. The team are going to start using the facility on a regular basis and we hope other sports teams get involved to help improve their athletic performance.
