Being a bit more ACTIVE is easier than you think!

The great summer of sport is about to get even better. Following the inspirational Team GB at the Olympics and the Paralympics set to amaze and astound us; the truth is that us mere mortals could all do with being a bit more active. Whilst most of us think about increasing our levels of physical activity, not everyone finds it easy to take that decision.

The Get Active Challenge is a free six-week online challenge for teams of three that logs weekly activity. So, whether you decide to walk a little more every day, cycle with the kids or get out in Cornwall’s exceptional outdoor environment, the Challenge will convert all your activity into miles and plot your progress as you try to make your way around the Cornish Coastline.

No matter what your starting point the Get Active Challenge will give you the support you need to make those small changes and start enjoying the benefits of a more active lifestyle. To feel energised, have fun and relieve lifes stresses and strains get together with friends or work colleagues and join hundreds of other organisations that take the Get Active Challenge.
