Fitness websites exclude Team GB’s Paralympians of the future
The Olympics and Paralympics have given many of us renewed enthusiasm for sport, or at least a firmer resolve to get fit. Whilst fitness clubs are an extremely useful means of helping us to get in shape and stay that way, for people with a disability or impairment, they are often the only feasible way they can safely get fit or take up a sport in a supported environment.
Our review of five of the top gym club websites found that most are either difficult or impossible for disabled people to use – which means they won’t be able to follow through on their new found zest for fitness and, who knows, perhaps become Team GB’s Paralympians of the future.
AbilityNet’s State of the eNation Reports are quarterly accessibility and usability reviews of a number of websites in a particular sector. The report includes detailed analysis of each website.
