‘This Girl Can’ is a brand new initiative and nationwide campaign to encourage more women to be active and to get into sport. It’s been developed by Sport England and their partners with the main message of inspiring women to:
‘wiggle, jiggle, move and prove that judgement is a barrier that can be overcome’.
It’s all about celebrating active women all over the country who are are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, what shape they are, how much they sweat and how crazy their hair looks! I love this campaign and being a bit of a fitness freak myself I can’t think of a more positive and ace way to show that women can basically rock it and enjoy working out! Whatever that may look like!
It is often the plain fear of embarrassment and judgement that stops many women taking part in exercise, however I can assure you that it doesn’t have to be intimidating. Whatever you want to do and however you look you’re awesome for just giving something new a go.
I have certainly looked ridiculous plenty of times in a spin class were you cycle so fast you think your legs are going to fall off and your face gets so red it looks like a tomato. I also love going to to classes and trying all sorts of new things. There is nothing wrong in not knowing the moves, everyone was new at some point. And to be honest, it’s kind of really funny when you mess up, especially when you’re with a mate and you can laugh together. I can firmly say I am horribly uncoordinated and I still give it all I have got!
The campaign is ace and I highly recommend you checking out the ace video below that really gets the message out there! They also have a hashtag #ThisGirlCan so if your inspired get moving 🙂
