What is Active Outdoors?

Hi! I’m Rob, an engineer spending my days developing state of the art technology that gives high performance people a significant edge over their competitors. By night I help others find ways to recharge from their hectic lifestyles by blogging about ways to have fun and adventure outdoors.

I have learned that being active outdoors with friends and family helps you to have a healthier work life balance and to recharge after a hectic day. I am sharing with you the awesome things I discover by blogging about great ways to spend your recreation time getting active outdoors.

Active Outdoors® aims to inspire you to spend more time having fun doing recreational pursuits in the natural world. As more people spend time getting active outdoors, this leads to increased health, wellbeing and a stronger desire to look after the world around us. You’ll also have some really awesome stories to share with your friends.

I am not blogging for the elite athlete, but for the normal guy or girl who is looking for things to do outdoors. Active Outdoors is not about being good at sport and winning medals. It’s about that feel-good factor. It’s about having fun and a laugh outdoors with your friends, family and community. I hope that by sharing the experiences and things I learn you will be inspired to get out more, explore the world around you and to interact with the natural environment.

Physical activities should be fun. They are more than just sports. Outdoor activities help you to develop your physical fitness, help your mental health and wellbeing, provide skills for life and work, and strengthen community spirit. It is not necessarily about competing against others, but can provide you with that sense of achievement from beating a personal best, learning a new skill or completing a personal challenge.
