Frame running is an exciting, inclusive sport that’s gaining popularity among people of all abilities. If you’re local to  Gloucester and find walking tricky for whatever reason, frame running can open up a world of freedom, fitness, and fun for you. Plus, you’ll have the support of a friendly physiotherapist to help you every step of the way!

What is Frame Running?

Frame running involves using a three-wheeled frame, called a Frame Runner, that supports your body while your legs move freely. This adaptive sport is perfect for individuals with balance difficulties, providing a safe and supportive way to run or walk at your own pace.

Why Give Frame Running a Try?

  1. Accessibility for All Abilities: Frame running is designed for everyone, including those with cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, or other mobility challenges. The Frame Runner offers the stability and support needed to enjoy running.
  2. Health Benefits: Improve your cardiovascular fitness, strengthen your muscles, and enhance your coordination. Frame running is a great way to stay active and healthy without putting too much strain on your joints.
  3. Sense of Freedom: Experience the joy of moving independently. With a Frame Runner, you can feel the thrill of speed, all while being supported and safe.
  4. In Gloucester, you have an advantage of starting your frame running journey with a friendly physiotherapist. They will ensure your Frame Runner is perfectly fitted to your needs and provide guidance on how to use it safely and effectively.

What to expect?

You will begin with short sessions to get used to the frame runner and ensure it’s fitted for your comfort. As you gain confidence and strength, you can gradually increase your time and distance. Remember, frame running is all about having fun and enjoying the freedom of movement. Celebrate your progress, no matter how small, and take pride in your achievements.
