Who We Are?

 

 There is growing awareness of the importance of physical activity and sport for the health and quality of everyday life. Numerous studies suggest that promotion of sports habits among the population is an excellent measure to prevent all kinds of health conditions. This applies especially to the youngest population. The benefits of sports and body activities highlighted by experts in today’s society are finally recognized so physical activity has now become part of current public health policy. Based on these insights, with a strong desire to continually reduce activities that disrupt sports and health, the Health Life Academy (HLA Association) was established.
