Abstract
This project examined the accessibility of fitness facilities in Western Wisconsin. This was accomplished by direct observation and physical measurements taken during on-site visits to 16 fitness facilities in Western Wisconsin. During the on-site visits, 14 structural domains were used to examine facility compliance with Title III of the Americans with Disability Act (ADA). In addition, an online survey was also given to owners/managers and employees to examine professional knowledge, education, training, and facility policy related to ADA compliance and accessibility.
