This Girl Can #FitGotReal
This Girl Can, funded by The National Lottery, believes that there's no right way to get active – if it gets your heart rate up it counts. And we want more women to find what's right for them.
Sport England discovered that 75% of 14-40 year old women in England want to exercise more, but the fear of judgement was stopping them.
This Girl Can will tackle these fears and a host of other issues to empower more women to give sport a go.
Feel Inspired by the stories of females that overcame the barriers and enjoyed their new active lifestyle.

During the month of August 2018, we launched #MovingCan campaign highlighting 31 amazing benefits of physical activity. There is much beyond just getting fit when you exercise and get active.
Following on from the successful #MovingCan Campaign in August 2018 we are now collaborating again with our local health partners to deliver #Movingis starting on the 13th May 2019. #Movingis a social medial campaign aimed at helping people with motivation and overcoming the most common barriers to become more active. There will be 7 days of co-ordinated social media posts giving people the chance to respond with the barriers that stop them or suggestions for overcoming them.
