Sport - active leisure

The active leisure sector comprises two sub-sectors - fitness and outdoors, and they are part of the broader sport sector. The fitness sector uses qualified instructors and trainers to deliver diverse, structured exercise programmes that help people of all ages and abilities to improve their health, muscle and cardiovascular endurance, coordination, balance, agility and flexibility. Fitness programmes also build a feeling of individual wellbeing that establishes and helps to maintain a healthy balance of mind, body and spirit. The outdoor sector uses outdoor related activities (mountain biking, canoe, rafting, horse riding, … etc.) as the basis of delivery of a recreational or personal development service. Outdoor providers do not generally offer competitions, which are therefore not included in the tool. The outdoor sector uses qualified instructors to deliver outdoor activities in a context of fun, recreation, tourism, outdoor learning or engagement with the natural environment. The tool does not cover high risk activities such as climbing, diving, surfing etc. since these were considered to be very specific and as such, need to go along with very specific health and safety measure, that couldn't be covered within the current approach. Aspects such as work performed outside normal working hours, part-time or temporary contracts, or volunteer work as well as free lancer work are included in the tool.
