Universal Fitness Innovation & Transformation (UFIT) is a movement for social change that aims to ‘inclusivize’ the fitness industry by connecting health clubs; with local disability service providers or groups of people with disabilities; and allied professionals. In our endeavor to make inclusion the norm in the fitness sector, UFIT welcomes the support and contribution of organizations and individuals.

Health & Fitness Clubs
Health & Fitness clubs can be leaders of inclusion in their communities. A set of comprehensive resources are available to clubs who are determined to ‘inclusivize’ their practice.
The UFIT Capacity Building Package is an innovative process-oriented learning experience for health and fitness clubs to empower managers, instructors, personal trainers and all staff in health and fitness clubs. This package includes access to the UFIT Explorer, online learning units, workshops and mentor support.
