Cert. no 9701
It is estimated that around 1 in 10 of the UK population has a disability, and yet disabled people are seriously under-represented in fitness and gym facilities. This course has been developed as part of the Inclusive Fitness Initiative (IFI), which aims to make fitness facilities more accessible to disabled people, both in terms of the physical environment and the skills and attitudes of their staff.
This course will provide you with confidence and expertise in writing and delivering safe, effective and fun exercise programmes for a range of people with the disabilities including Down's syndrome, Asperger's syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, limbless/amputation, visual impairment and hearing impairment.
