Gyms for All

Gyms for All (20min, NHK, May ’09)  

Bullied as a child because of his learning difficulty, Gary Jelen turned his life around when he discovered weightlifting as a teenager.   Supported by his father Martin, he went on to break world records and hod Special Olympics powerlifting titles.  This film tells the story of what he did after he retired.  

Gary and Martin set up the Inclusive Fitness Initiative to improve access to gyms for people with physical and learning disabilities, and their pioneering charity has transformed thousands of lives around the country.
