Inclusive Outdoor Fitness

Inclusion in outdoor fitness

Inclusion in outdoor fitness equipment is about creating training spaces that are useful and welcoming to everybody. Not everyone can use our outdoor strength training equipment in the same way. By reducing barriers and including a variety of exercise opportunities so users can move in the best way that serves them – disabilities or not. It is important to underline that inclusion is not about creating segregated areas for specific users but about creating 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.
