  10. 10. AHLs across their lives ■ Being active and healthy are not just things that AHLs do, they’re things that AHLs are.

  11. 11. Buying styles ■ Brands marketing to AHLs should seek to provide them with information that allows them to make their own informed decisions about products.

  17. 17. AHL attitudes towards advertising brands ■ AHLs’ attitudes towards advertising and brands are consistent with the notion that they like to do their own product research as opposed to being influenced by third parties. AHLs are looking for information, not for someone to tell them what to think.
