SpoFit is very pleased to have been voted Phoenix’s Best Gym for Everyone by The New Times Magazine for 2013. Phil Pangrazio, ABILITY360’s CEO added, “It is extremely rewarding to receive such recognition. I believe it is a sign that “Universal Design” is becoming more accepted and that in time, everyone’s gym will be inclusive.”

Here’s what New Times had to say;

With a 7,500-square-foot weight room, two full-size basketball courts, lap pool and spa, indoor jogging track, and 35-foot climbing wall, the Virginia G. Piper Sports and Fitness Center isn’t just the best gym in Phoenix for people with disabilities — we’re pretty sure it’s close to the best gym for anyone, anywhere. But the fact that this place is specifically designed to be universally accessible to people who use prosthetics, wheelchairs, and other assistance to get around is what makes it so special. And so necessary. Paralympians gather here. So do veterans learning to walk again and just about everyone in between. This facility — which has reasonable drop-in and long-term membership rates — is truly a treasure, smack dab in the middle of metro Phoenix. (New Times link)
