Inclusion in outdoor fitness

Inclusion in outdoor fitness is about creating training spaces that are useful and welcoming to everybody. This is achieved by reducing barriers and including a variety of exercise opportunities so that there will be a relevant use scenario for the widest possible extent of users – 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.
