Many Fitness Facilities May Not Be Fully Accessible to People with Disabilities

Being physically active is an important part of staying healthy. Running and walking outdoors are popular options, but people with disabilities, especially mobility disabilities, may not have full access to traditional parks and trails. Fitness facilities, such as gyms and health clubs, can offer alternative ways for people to be physically active, but those facilities may still present barriers to getting a workout since many fitness facilities may lack critical features that would enable people with disabilities to fully use the facilities and equipment to exercise.

Nowhere to park your accessible van: Augmented signage may increase access to van-accessible parking spaces

Driving is a key to independence for many Americans, including Americans with disabilities. Whether they drive a standard vehicle or a modified one equipped with a ramp or lift, many drivers with disabilities can obtain permits to park in designated accessible parking spaces. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) indicates specific requirements for these parking spaces such as the number of accessible parking spaces to be set aside in a lot, signage and ground markings, and designated parking spaces for standard vehicles as well as for vans equipped with ramps or lifts.

Ningún lugar para estacionarse: Los letreros claros pueden aumentar el acceso a los espacios de estacionamiento accesibles para vehículos equipados con rampas o ascensores.

La conducción es clave para la independencia de muchos estadounidenses, incluyendo los estadounidenses con discapacidades. Ya sea que conduzcan un vehículo estándar o uno modificado con una rampa o ascensor, muchos conductores con discapacidades tienen permisos para estacionarse en espacios específicamente designados para su uso.
