UFIT Encourages Inclusion In The European Fitness Industry

Founded in November 2013, UFIT stands for ‘Universal Fitness Innovation Transformation’ and it’s the brand name for the European Commission-supported, not-for-profit Project led by the UNESCO Chair, which aims to transform the lives of people with disabilities through Sport, PE, Fitness.

The UFIT project is calling on the fitness industry to be more inclusive of people with disabilities in and the UFIT project is asking people with disabilities to come and see what their fitness club have to offer. Locally, UFIT delivers a package of options to fitness facilities to guide managers, instructors and personal trainers to be more inclusive of people with disabilities in their clubs.

Catherine Carty, Project Manager, UNESCO Chair is the Project leader assisted by Kilian Fisher representing IHRSA and all their partners.

Recently an “historic moment’ occurred (pictured) where Jim Whitehead, CEO ACSM, with Joe Moore CEO & President of IHRSA the Global Fitness & Sports Association, and all the USA UFIT Task Force came together, as well as many other global supporters, to sign the UFIT Marseille Declaration with Catherine Carty, in Washington DC USA.
