Published: 27/05/2010 11:03:00 | Category: Fitness Suite

Carre’s Grammar School Fitness Suite has recently been awarded a prestigious Inclusive Fitness mark by the Inclusive Fitness Initiative (IFI). This means that the facility is much more accessible for disability users including people with visual impairments, hearing impairments, learning disabilities, wheel chair users and people with health conditions.

 

Staff have attended training courses to be able to offer a more inclusive experience for its members, the equipment has been adapted so that members with disabilities can have a full body work out and changing rooms have been modified so that members can access changing and shower facilities. New signs have also been erected with clear font and bold colours.

To celebrate this achievement Carre’s Grammar School Fitness suite are offering an open weekend to show off the changes. This will take place on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 June between 9 am and 3 pm.

Nigel Stephenson, Health and Fitness Manager said “I am really keen to offer anyone the opportunity to come and have a look at the changes that we have made to the Fitness Suite and even have a go on a few machines, free of charge. We always try to offer a professional, friendly and non-intimidating experience to all of our community members”.
