Ethics and Change

Our creative Active Citizenship© was developed for The City & Guilds Institute.  Delivering Health Trainer assessments helped improve practitioner competence.  As an established Consultant to awarding bodies, we have trained hundreds of Health Trainers for City & Guilds.  Plus we helped SMEs gain Institute of Leadership & Management accreditation. We’ve supported hundreds through to “Active Citizenship” via City & Guilds and have access to millions of research books for green sustainability.
Featured:- City & Guilds Cycle Mechanics Level 2

Correct Bike Fit affects cycling comfort, performance and decreases risk of overuse injuries – all which impact on enjoyment. It is importance in examining both cyclist and machine to successfully diagnose and manage overuse injuries. Integrated Bike Fit Training is designed from a clinical and mechanical perspective. The intervention will identify key intrinsic and extrinsic risk factors to overcome risk factors that cause injury and/or loss in performance.

Featured:_ City and Guilds Bicycle Mechanics Level 2

Over the years cycling has increased in popularity, as such cycling has become a fully inclusive activity which embraces all ages, abilities, and genders – owing to its multiple established health, environmental and socioeconomic benefits. It is used for commuting, recreation, racing, triathlons, and rehabilitation. Beneficial in prevention of diseases associated with sedentary lifestyles such as cardiovascular disease. The resurgence in cycling resulted in significant increased cycle sales and cycle activity, with a corresponding increase in cycling related overuse injuries. As a result demand for Sports Therapy with Bike Fitting  SKILLS/EXPERIENCE for workplace employee cycling has increased.
