Sport England has released its latest report on adult levels of activity for 2017/18 – and we completely agree that the Isle of Wight is one of the best places in the UK to get active!
What does ‘being active’ mean?
For many people, it may be taking the dog for a walk, using the stairs more or leaving the car at home whenever possible.
In this Active Lives Adult Survey (May 2017/18) report, it shows that people on the Isle of Wight are getting out for more than 150 minutes each week on average.
At Adventure Activities UK, we consider ourselves truly lucky to have our head office on the stunning Isle of Wight, which means being outdoors and active is part of the lifestyle of island living for most of us.
Just a job?
Our staff are not only highly qualified instructors, but they’re all really passionate about the activities we provide for all our customers – whether you’re a visitor to the island, coming along as a family or friends group, part of a school residential trip, or a young person coming along as part of our new Alternative Adventures for those who have individual needs.
We have team members who do loads of outdoor ‘stuff’ in their spare time, which just makes them even better at their jobs because it’s what we all love doing – being active and sharing our love of learning new skills and activities… outdoors!
It’s well known that being active supports physical, mental and emotional wellbeing but it also strengthens social bonds, develops self confidence and gives people (you and us!) a greater sense of achievement.
