Full Figured Fitness was one of 9 organisations chosen to work with London Sports with their This Girl Can campaign. It has been an honour and a pleasure to meet and work with such an inspiring group of trainers, facilitators, motivators and coaches.
Amazingly we all have so very much in common in terms of our ethos and the way we support our participants/clients, our empowered approaches to encouraging and sustaining participation in health and fitness programs and classes. I am humbled to be selected to be featured in the This London Girl Can video alongside the other amazing partner organisations; Hackney Laces Football Club, We Move Dance Programme at Haringey Sixth Form and Brockley Nordic Walking.
This video will introduce the This Girl Can campaign on a local as well as national level, help break down barriers identified in the Sport England survey: namely accessibility, breaking the fear of judgement barrier which many women and girls still state as their primary reason for not exercising regularly.
We all hope to inspire even more women & girls to take up sport and physical activity, so please do share the video, get moving and please do let us know how we can help support and encourage you.
