Inclusive Fitness Initiative

Inclusive Fitness Initiative - IFI The Inclusive Fitness Initiative (IFI) is a programme supporting the fitness industry to become more inclusive, catering for the needs of disabled and non-disabled people, raising physical activity participation levels. Key to ensuring inclusive facilities is sensible, appropriate and inclusive fitness equipment selection.

The IFI has been working in partnership with fitness equipment manufacturers for more than eight years to ensure that the equipment available on the market is as inclusive as current technology and development will permit. The lack of availability of accessible fitness equipment can no longer be used as an excuse for not offering inclusive fitness provision. IFI accredited equipment is designed for all users to benefit from and does not specifically target disabled people. Many of the features enhance the workout for both non disabled and disabled customers alike, Providing accessible fitness equipment simply ensures that your gym is functional for more users than ever before.

The IFI has worked alongside the industry to create an accredited list of fitness equipment, the only list of its kind anywhere in the world. In the UK this accredited equipment list is the definitive guide to the most inclusive fitness equipment available in the market place.
