A Day in the Life of Ethos

For children, the summer holidays – and resulting loss of routine – can often lead to increased inactivity, perceived television addictions, and general laziness. Fit For Sport is encouraging the next generation to lead healthy, active lifestyles, and I was fortunate enough to grasp an insider’s look into the infamous Ethos Camp, located in Imperial College London’s state-of-the-art sports centre, blogging about it to further inform our parents about what we do!



A Healthy Active Summer – Key For All Families

During the long summer holidays children can often be guilty of slumping into a routine of staying up later than usual and getting a little lazy if they are not engaging in fun daily activities. Therefore, it’s key for parents to understand that although school holidays are important for children to have a little rest time, it’s equally vital to keep them healthy and active on a daily basis.


'You don’t have to be sporty to be active'

It’s one of the most common misconceptions of childhood that you must be sporty to be active. For those children less interested or less talented at sport, they can often be marginalised which can lead to dangerously high levels of childhood obesity – a crisis that we as a nation are currently in the midst of.

New Healthy Active Schools System delivers much-needed ‘School Activities and Fitness Levels Report’

PRESS RELEASE: January 31, 2017: today’s launch of the Healthy Active Schools System - an online activity measurement tool for schools – is meeting demand from parents and Government to track, measure and report on children’s activity levels at schools.


Why every child can keep active regardless of deprivation

Startling statistics have revealed that a shocking 40% of kids living in deprived areas have been measured as overweight or obese in the last year, compared to 27% in the most affluent areas. Every child deserves the opportunity to be healthy regardless of their family’s financial background and although there can be restraints due to deprivation, staying active doesn’t have to be costly, in fact, more often than not it’s completely free.
