Step 2: Becoming a UFIT Supporter
Clubs who are ready to commit to advancing inclusion in their fitness facilities and the industry as a whole sign on as UFIT Supporters, joining the UFIT movement and advocating for inclusion in the sport and fitness sector.
Step 3: Becoming UFIT Recognized
Clubs who have started implementing some inclusive practices can become UFIT Recognized. Recognized clubs receive a UFIT Recognized certificate and access to a wide range of resources, including UFIT Explorer, which provides guidance and insight on an extensive range of disability types, thus enabling staff across a club to better cater to people's needs and design and implement programs.

Step 5: Becoming a UFIT Ambassador
