About Us

Here at Invictus Active we have a range of solutions that we hope will make a difference to your lifestyle – we call these ‘lifestyle solutions’. Using these you will be able to keep active and reap the benefits that an active lifestyle brings.

Founded by Scott Smith and Paul Cooksey, both full time wheelchairs users, we have tried and tested each solution and believe in the products we have available – from the fantastic freewheel to brand new innovative ways to exercise, like our very own Invictus Active Trainer.

The word ‘Invictus’ is latin for ‘unconquered’ or ‘invincible’ and also the title of a Victorian Poem by William Ernest Henley. Published in 1888 the poem describes his strength in the face of adversity and that nothing was going to stop him. You can listen and read the poem here.

2018 heralds another exciting year of further enhancements to our existing product range as well as the development of brand new products to add to our existing lifestyle solutions, equipment and accessories.

In our usual fashion we will try to maintain our ethos of enabling any new developments to be ‘bolted onto’ our existing designs allowing our loyal customers to upgrade and improve rather than feeling left behind and penalised for helping pioneering the Invictus Active brand, we have all felt that way in the past with our laptops and phones!

Amongst some of the solutions currently under development are enhanced online interaction (EOi), (imagine being able to go online and competing head to head against a friend sat on their trainer on the other side of the world!…) We are also developing a range of wheelchair sports trainers covering court sports like tennis, basketball, rugby as well as racing chair trainers that can be used as a static trainer or transported to a trackside for warm up and cool down routines.

Keep an eye on our latest news here – or feel free to send us your email address via our contact form here to be added to our regular email newsletter.

Trainer is great! – I’ve had it set-up in my garage now for a good month, took a little to get used to it at first if I’m honest but using it 2/3 times a week now…

I’m finding the trainer great . I’m not a triathlete or anything but I had noticed that over time my wheeling had got more right-handed. I ended up with a left shoulder blade sprain last year…
Jo Rugen

Elizabeth S
The trainer is great. Very easy to set up and use and I am not very mechanically minded. The smart tools are excellent and really help you keep track of how well you are progressing…
Sandra
Using the Invictus active made a real difference and opened up a completely new avenue of training for when we were preparing for the 20/20 challenge
Initially we were limited to literally pushing the streets, but this allowed us to take it indoors, and keep the accuracy of resistance for those hills and a great record of what we were achieving through the monitor and computer
We used it in our gym too to do a rolling spin class, and it worked a treat
For those that want to take full control of their training and open up new avenues, the Invictus trainer is without doubt a great advancement and fantastic piece of kit!
Gavin Levitt
An amazing piece of equipment that should be standard in every gym and leisure centre…… awesome
