As a company rg:active uses sport to promote health and wellness within the corporate and charity sectors but also on a mass participation level through its growing network of franchises across the UK.
The business was originally founded by John Brame in 2006 whilst he was still holding down other jobs including the management of the very successful triandrun triathlon stores and then as trainer to World Champion F1 driver Jenson Button.
With a focus on the sports that John raced professionally in (triathlon and cycling) the business has always been forward thinking and been able to adapt and evolve as the sports of triathlon and cycling have exploded in the UK. Taking people on a journey and seeing the progress a person can make with some guidance, tuition, positivity and support is one of the most rewarding experiences for any teacher or coach and we get to see that everyday of the week.
The Company started with a single Coached Open Water swim session and has grown to where it now sees to the needs of 10,000+ athletes per year across the UK offering everything from complete corporate healthy living packages to specialist sports coaching to accomplished athletes.
More recently rg:active have trial blazed a way to promote healthy living, wellness and an active lifestyle within businesses large and small with huge success, creating a ‘journey’ that can be life changing! From a ‘learn to swim’ or ‘couch to 5km’ initiative to training for a corporate triathlon we have found an offering that we feel every company, and it’s staff could benefit from.
In 2018 rg:active launched it’s first franchise. More franchise opportunities are presenting themselves all the time and new areas of business are constantly being explored, so the future looks exciting for this growing business.
