Inclusion in Outdoor Fitness

Inclusive outdoor fitness equipment is about creating training spaces that are useful and welcoming to everybody. This is achieved by reducing barriers and including various exercise opportunities so that there will be a relevant use scenario for the widest possible extent of users. It is important to underline that inclusion is not about creating segregated areas for specific users but a truly integrated environment. This requires insights from research, design principles and dialogue with the actual users. KOMPAN Fitness Institute has conducted a white paper on how to work with inclusion in outdoor fitness.
