About us

Active Lincolnshire is committed to providing opportunities for everyone in Lincolnshire to be active every day. We work with partners to address inequalities and inactivity, responding to the needs of people and places.

What we do

As advocates for the positive power that physical activity has on everyone’s lives, we work in partnership to improve understanding, influence change, and tackle the challenge of inactivity.

Knowledge Hub

Our Knowledge Hub is the core of our website. Here you’ll find our guidance, advice, insight and support in all areas of physical activity and sport.

Get involved

Want to get involved with us? We depend on your collaboration to create and influence meaningful change. Find out how you can help Lincolnshire move more.

Active Lincolnshire challenges you to move for “twenty” every day.

This can be 20 minutes of:
Walking, pushing, cycling, running, dancing or participating in a home workout
20 repetitions of a movement (push ups, squats, lunges)
Or it could even be a distance, could you achieve a 20km bike ride, 20 lengths of your garden or street or 20 times round the block?

Make the Twenty21 challenge yours, by choosing what works for your current level of ability. You can also choose any type of physical activity, you decide what you enjoy most.

#MyTwenty21 is a call to action for all of Lincolnshire, let’s move together and inspire and motivate each other to achieve the daily twenty.

    Why moving is the best medicine

    Moving your body everyday benefits your physical and mental health.

    • Boosting your mood, improving your self esteem and self confidence
    • It’s good for your heart and bones
    • It can help you lose weight
    • Ease chronic pain (decreasing inflammation, increasing mobility, and decreasing overall pain levels).

    In 2021 we want to encourage everyone in Lincolnshire to be more active everyday.

    Your Twenty could be:

      • 20 minutes of walking, yoga or cycling
      • 2 x 10 minutes of jogging
      • 4 x 5minutes dancing in the kitchen
      • 20 sit ups, push ups, squats or star jumps
      • Walk up and down the stairs 20 times
      • Volunteering in your local community 20 times throughout the year
      • Litter picking- could you commit to picking up 20 pieces of litter (making sure you have appropriate protective wear)?
