Find out more about The Active Life

Welcome to The Active Life. We are a collection of active, sporting enthusiasts who love to be outdoors. This site is our little corner of the internet where we provide information and advice for runners, cyclists and walkers. Our content includes:

Our reviews and impartiality policy

We are 100% independent and impartial. We don’t host any advertising so everything you will find written on this site is exclusively our opinion and written to provide the reader with the best advice. We buy and test all the products we review so we have hands-on experience. Where we discuss or review products we will occasionally place links to sites such as Amazon, Wiggle and others – to help users find the best place to purchase online and at the best price.

Should any users click one of these links and go on to buy the product at the store in question, we will receive a small commission (typically around 3-5%). This doesn’t impact the final price you the consumer pay, and it is the only revenue we receive from this website – so if you feel we have helped you in deciding to purchase a pair of running trainers or a particular cycling helmet for instance, purchasing via one of our links would be much appreciated.
