Inclusion Charter

We believe that bodybuilding and fitness is about fairness and equality, respect and dignity. Bodybuilding and Fitness teaches individuals how to strive and succeed; how to cope with success and disappointment; and it brings people together with a common goal.

We believe that everyone should be able to participate in, compete safely and enjoy all aspects of Bodybuilding and Fitness – whoever they are, whatever their role and whatever their background or ability. This extends to our staff, participants, members, volunteers and supporters.

We are committed to ensuring all people in Bodybuilding and Fitness have the opportunity to participate safely and feel welcome by running events that will actively promote inclusion.

We will strive to make these values a reality for all participants regardless of gender, religion, sexual orientation, age, race, nationality, ethnic background, or disability. We will work together, and individually, to keep Bodybuilding and Fitness free of discrimination in all forms.

We will make Bodybuilding and Fitness a safe and welcome place for everyone and we will challenge unacceptable behaviour. We will ensure there are procedures in place so that complaints and concerns can be raised and addressed professionally and sensitively.

We will encourage fair and equal opportunities in every aspect of Bodybuilding and Fitness for those with a physical or intellectual disability who aspire to be a competitor, coach, administrator, judge or official. We will work with our stakeholders to deliver welcoming and accessible venues and facilities for all our participants.
