About timeoutdoors

About timeoutdoors

timeoutdoors aims to inspire people to get active outdoors to help them lead naturally fit and healthy lifestyles.

Our motto is #FreeYourself - and this could be from your desk, your comfort zone, routine, the gym, diets, kit obsessions or even those extra few pounds, whatever you want!

We believe in sustainable active lifestyles rather than short-term plans and in eating naturally by reducing sugar and refined carbohydrates in diets. Getting active outdoors increases vitamin D levels and has been linked to improving mental wellbeing as well as reducing risks of cancer, heart disease, diabetes and dementia. Reconnecting with nature is also great for the soul.

Our core values

  • Inspiring - we inspire people to get active outdoors and lead healthier lifestyles.
  • Simple - we make things easy and keep everything clear, concise and jargon-free.
  • No nonsense - we provide honest, impartial advice free of advertiser influence.
  • Professional - we strive for exceptionally high standards in everything we do.
timeoutdoors is a family-owned limited company managed by a team of passionate outdoor enthusiasts. Find out about the team below - click a profile to connect on LinkedIn...
