Inclusive Fitness Initiative

The Inclusive Fitness Initiative (IFI) has been established for over 10 years, supporting leisure centres to become more welcoming and accessible environments to disabled people. Achieving the ‘IFI Mark’ gym accreditation is key in addressing inequality in physical activity as it enables leisure facilities to reach inactive populations and raise awareness of the benefits of exercise to get more disabled people physically active.
