"Instructability Team: A group of previously unemployed individuals with disabilities including spinal cord injury, blindness and impaired mental health who have trained and qualified as fitness gym instructors. They have shown courage and determination to overcome both physical and psychological challenges to develop themselves in a profession that they initially thought was unachievable. By undertaking voluntary work within public and private fitness facilities they have challenged preconceptions about the leisure industry workforce and inspired others to see fitness training as an activity that can be open to everybody. Their presence in fitness studios has encouraged other people with physical impairments to take up gym membership and prompted managers to review their current policies and practices regarding employment, staff training, access to facilities, use of equipment and marketing. In some instances this has also led to their employment as fitness instructors. If this group carried the Paralympic flame they would significantly inspire others."
