Active Living Partners is a division of
Human Kinetics, the information leader in
physical activity. Our mission is to help people improve their health and quality of
life. We produce educational programs and tools for health and fitness professionals
and the general public that help people adopt and maintain healthy habits such as
physical activity and balanced eating.
Active Living Partners programs address
physical inactivity and unbalanced eating, two leading
causes of obesity, heart disease, and other chronic ailments. Our programs are being
successfully used in worksites, hospitals, community health programs, senior
residences, colleges and universities, fitness centers, as well as by individual
people. The success these programs have had in empowering people to change their
health habits can be traced to the following:
- Focus on behavior change. Active Living Partners programs effectively
address the underlying causes of poor health habits. Our focus on lifestyle
management skills and realistically paced change is more likely to result
in lasting behavior change.
- Scientific basis. Our programs have been developed in partnership with
The Cooper Institute and use
curriculums that have been proven effective in clinical trials.
- Personalized approach. Our courses allow people to tailor the program
based on things such as their stages of readiness to change, lifestyle,
and personal preferences.
- Flexible delivery options. Active Living Partners courses can be delivered
in groups, online, or via phone or face-to-face coaching. This enables
organizations to better reach their constituents.
- Ongoing support. We provide comprehensive support through our staff and
support Web site. Use our online tools to evaluate your program, communicate
with other providers and your classes, share best practices, and stay on top
of the latest research in the fields of behavior change and healthy living.
