Stourbridge fitness equipment helps rugby ace back to full strength
3:00pm Tuesday 6th August 2013 in News
STOURBRIDGE based fitness company Versaclimber UK is helping rugby ace James Haskell get back to full strength.
The company supplied the England and London Wasps flanker with a climbing exercise machine Sportsmedical, to aid his training and rehabilitation following recent surgery.
The 28-year-old was injured for around six months with tendonitis in both knees, and was unable to play for five weeks with an inflamed bursa, before having a three-hour operation in June.
Mr Haskell said: “My recovery is expected to last three months, so I need to still be able to train as much as I can in that time. Because of the uniqueness of the machine, I am able to target either my upper body, just my legs or both together, seated and standing. It’s also great for getting used to moving again and gently putting weight on my knees.”
Versaclimber UK’s managing director Neil Kelford added: “We are very happy that James chose to use the Versaclimber in his training.
“As one of the world’s best, he needs to stay on top form and the Sportsmedical will go a long way towards helping him achieve that.”
