ABOUT US

At Healthy Active Lifestyles Ltd. we are passionate about sharing our interest and love for the natural environment, outdoor adventure and PE & School Sport. Through high quality physical and outdoor education, existing social problems such as rising obesity rates and a reduction in time spent in local and national green areas we wish to challenge the 9 to 5 rut and encourage others to become active and ‘get outdoors’. In addition to overcoming social problems, the skills that our services can develop, such as team work, communication and leadership are valuable for all ages and beneficial in everyday life. We run our services with our slogan in mind “whatever the struggle, continue the climb”.
