Active Cambridge is a non profit organization dedicated to help raise the fitness levels of our Cambridge community. We accomplish this by connecting residents with many of the Sports and Fitness activities available in our great city. Currently we have over forty different groups working with us to carry the Keep Fit, Stay Healthy message. These groups are very diverse in type and intensity of activity so there is something for everybody. "Get Activated !!"
Get Started Here !!
To help focus in on what activity might be most appealing to an individual we recommend you spend a few moments completing your activitype profile. This fun activity will help identify if you enjoy team sports vs individual activities and are competitive by nature or more interested in self fulfillment ventures. Based on this information the ActiviTYPING App will recommend activities that fit the profile you have provided. Are you Fire, Water, Earth or Wind ?
The Active City is a weekly TV show on Rogers community television. This show was created by Andy Hourahine for Active Cambridge to help showcase many of the great sports and fitness opportunities there are in and around our area. Typically one show features three or four segments linked by a theme and presented in a one half hour package. The individual segments are also available on Youtube under the Active Cambridge channel and have received over 500,000 views.
