About our Services

Active 4 Health provides sports specific coaching together with health and fitness programmes for the whole community in Group-Based settings during school time or as after school activities.

 



ABOUT ACTIVE for HEALTH

Active for Health is a new Community Interest Company (CIC) formed in 2016. The social enterprise aims to bring fitness programmes to members of the community who would otherwise be reluctant to visit mainstream gyms for a variety of reasons, and to local Schools to raise overall fitness levels and sports participation.
