Welcome to LimbActive

Hi there! My name is Jenny Hassan.

Thanks for stopping by our Website!

LimbActive was created out of a passion for wellbeing.

My husband Paul and I met 15 years ago whilst working together as Horticulturist’s at a large Garden Centre.

We share a common love for plants, nature, growing food and running (amongst many things).

With 3 young children of our own, we believe it is important to model a healthy lifestyle to them also.

Good health is such a blessing! And although life often throws unexpected challenges our way – there is a lot of lifestyle factors over which we do have control.

Daily habits carve out our health and wellbeing for the future.

Invest in your future health today!

  • Move a little  (or a lot)
  • Eat more whole, unprocessed  foods
  • Take time to rest and recover
  • Get at least 6-8hrs sleep a night
  • Get out into the nature
  • Spend time with quality people
  • Invest in your mental/spiritual health via prayer/meditation

We hope that you find your time spent here to be encouraging, informative and inspiring.

We’d love to hear from you..so drop us a line.

Have an awesome day ☺

Jessica Hassan At National Nitro School’s Challenge.

Congrats to LimbActive Squad Runner: Jessica Hassan who made her debut at National level Athletics this week.

Jessica competed in Perth at the National Nitro School’s Challenge. Due to her team only having 5 members ( not 7) Jessica competed in several events including the 4 x 100m relay and the 2 x 2 x 400m relay….but it was the 800m event that she was most keen to participate in.

Jessica was the only 13yr old amongst the field 14yrs girls.

She placed 10th out of 15 runners – which is a great achievement for her first ever National Competition.

Well done Jess.

Alyssa Murphy U12 ACT Champion!

Congratulations to our LimbActive Squad runner – Alyssa Murphy who won Gold in Canberra last weekend at the ACT XCountry Championships!

Alyssa ran a beautiful race to win by a comfortable margin in the U12 Girls category.

Aly has been working hard in training over the past 18 months and has shown incredible improvement in that time across many different distances!

Only 12 months ago she was struggling with some “growing pains” (severs) issues which made it difficult for her to compete at this event.

However she persevered with appropiate exercises and training loads and has come out the other side all the stronger!

She is a fantastic example that persistence and consistency  pays off.

Her younger brother Luca ( who loves training with the big kids every now and then) took out gold in the U6 Boys race also… a great effort for our little “Pocket Rocket”!

Angus is heading off into Yr 12 at Goulburn Highschool this year….and has been training with our squad for the last 18 months.

This was his first 1/2 Marathon Race – a huge step up from Highschool Xcountry Competition!

He placed 27th out of 101 men over the weekend which is a fantastic achievement!

Congrats Angus – we are all very proud of you and can’t wait to see what other amazing goals you are going to smash this year!
