IFI Fitness Equipment
The IFI assists leisure providers and fitness equipment purchasers with an endorsement scheme for commercial fitness equipment. We recognise products designed with accessibility in mind.
All ‘IFI Accredited’ fitness equipment must meet IFI Equipment Design Standards to be fully inclusive. It must enable both disabled and non-disabled people to benefit from a full body, cardiovascular and resistance-based workout.
The IFI works proactively alongside the fitness equipment industry Research and Development Associates. The group influences and supports the development of accessible fitness equipment.
Currently the IFI has over 100 Accredited items from a total of 15 different manufacturers.
All products on the IFI’s Accredited items list have been product tested by disabled people and approved by experienced industry experts to develop the design standards. The result is an increase in choice for operators and training opportunities for disabled users in the UK marketplace.
Providing accessible fitness equipment ensures that your gym is more welcoming for more users. As well as giving your facility the potential to increase gym membership numbers, it helps you to retain current members with new and exciting product innovations.
