Social Action

People are powerful and empowered when drawn together through a common purpose and shared values. We’re an agile and responsible company with a start up mentality, calling for positive change and impact. We’re creative, exploring possibilities and looking for small, immediate solutions (whilst also pursuing strategies for bigger, more complex issues). Our can-do attitude is contagious! We invite you to get active with us and in doing so add your voice to our rally call for a better world.

Simplicity

Life is complicated enough in the fast paced modern world. We believe that small things make a big difference, and are here to remind you that slowing down and prioritising your health and wellbeing needs to be a priority, not an afterthought. So whilst our subscription is simple by design, the outcomes are far reaching and highly impactful. We’re making it easy for you to get active, stay active, protect the planet, and we’re rewarding you (and your local community) for it too!

Community Driven

We live and breathe the values of impacting our society in a positive way. We support you – and your family and friends – to live longer, happier and healthier lives. We’re creating an inclusive environment which is sensitive to caring for the communities we build – and we give you the tools to encourage and build within your own locality. We believe that humility, trust and respect for each other happens by capillary action, and so we ask that every subscriber, stakeholder and team member should be able to be heard and make a positive change to the world we share.

Environmentally Friendly

Protecting our world for future generations is at the heart of our approach. Active Orbit encourages people to become healthier and happier, to go local, to support their communities by walking and cycling more, to go to local shops and support local businesses. The power is in our hands (and feet!) and we all have a part to play. Together we can make a huge difference – and Active Orbit is also collecting the data to show how our efforts will reduce Co2 emissions and fuel consumption in a meaningful way.

Partnership Approach

We believe that the world will be a better place if we work together, do the right thing, and build strong trustworthy relationships over time. Everything we do is driven by an active partnership approach, bringing together subscribers and rewards partners with shared values to build a larger ecosystem. We aim to work in harmony with our members and rewards partners to bring about positive change, building our community from the inside out. Above all, we want you to love Active Orbit and share your ideas and inspiration, so that together we make a positive difference.

Rachel Flower

Meet our CEO (Chief Enthusiasm Officer)

Rachel has a background in law and contracts, and has worked with thousands of businesses of all shapes and sizes, helping them to grow. She’s an active advocate for equality and diversity, compassionate leadership and championing businesses that do good in the world.

Here at Active Orbit Rachel is mostly found driving forward our community ethos “activity for all” and engaging with our members, partners, team and stakeholders to deliver our vision – changing how people get active. She’s always got an eye on tackling bigger issues linked to inactivity such as mental health and chronic disease, particularly related to longevity and improving quality of life and relationships. In her (limited!) spare time she sings with “The White Rosettes” a barbership chorus, and loves nothing more than good food and good wine shared with friends and family.

“As a busy working parent, finding energy to exercise can be a challenge. By making simple choices – walk to the shops instead of taking the car – it becomes possible again. I also want our children to get away from screens and devices – simple pleasures of spending time in nature, building dens, riding bikes, spotting wildlife.

Within Active Orbit I love having members who care about the environment and also want to create a better quality of life for themslves and their loved ones. Modern life is so stressful and fast-paced and we’re here to remind people to take care of their health first.

Together, we have fun getting active so that it becomes an natural part of our everyday life again.” 

Chris Ralph

Our CTO (Chief Technology Officer)

Chris is in charge of tech, and he drives the vision and strategy for our brilliant Active orbit technology platform. He loves to talk in techy code and he has a great team of passionate tech-geniuses brimming with great plans and clever tricks. 

Chris is most often found with his head in some architecture designs, and is forever coming up with cool ideas on how we can build more exciting and engaging features into our online and app offering. He manages our super team of tech brainboxes and keeps them all on our toes with testing and launching of new features. In 2018, Chris rode the 300KM Vatternrunden in Sweden, and he’s now looking to circumnavigate Iceland for his next major challenge.

“OK I admit it, I’m the cycling enthusiast in the team. At last count I had 9 bikes in my garden shed, but they often make their way into my house, too. You can find me at the weekends cycling around Cambridgeshire and attending sportives with other members of the local Bike Club I co-founded with Mark over 10 years ago.

But activity wasn’t always such a big part of my life, in fact I used to be pretty sedentary, I worked too hard and didn’t take good care of myself. Having experienced first hand the transformation in my own health and wellbeing from getting outdoors and focusing on activity, it drives me to bring simple accessible ways for other people to get more active too. It’s literally life changing. And our vision for Active Orbit is to change lives for millions of others, using technology as a platform to help and engage them.

I’m excited for what we’re building here and how it will help people.”
