Inclusive Fitness Initiative

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, as well as raising physical activity participation levels. ​

IFI focuses on four models:

  • accessible facilities
  • inclusive fitness equipment
  • staff training
  • inclusive marketing and engagement strategies.

All IFI Mark sites must meet basic criteria for accessibility which are assessed by experienced access auditors. Facility accessibility is not limited to the initial access of the building, but covers fitness related services, changing areas and catering provisions. The operational management of policies and procedures are also assessed to ensure total inclusivity and accessibility. For further information please contact your local leisure centre.​
