Inclusive Fitness leads the way in providing accessible physical activity and in increasing participation amongst disabled people.
The Inclusive Fitness Initiative (IFI) has been established for over 10 years, with a national coverage of 400 IFI Mark accredited gym facilities. Now managed within the English Federation of Disability Sport (EFDS) it is recognised that the IFI Mark is fundamental in addressing inequality in physical activity. It reaches inactive populations and raises awareness of the benefits of exercise to get more disabled people physically active.
Inclusive Fitness addresses inclusion to encourage a cultural change within IFI facilities in the following elements- fitness equipment, staff training, marketing and engagement, sports development and accessible facilities. The diagram to the left shows how they fit together.
