Sport England officially launched the inspiring ‘This Girl Can’ campaign last night (12Jan) with the premiere of a national television advertisement during Coronation Street, reaching millions of viewers. The initiative aims to forge new positive social attitudes to and around women and girls playing sport and being physically active, breaking down a key barrier (fear of judgement) so that they feel more confident and comfortable exercising.
South RibbleCommunity Leisure Trustis supporting the initiative to encourage women and girls to take part in activities at our Centres and spread the message that ‘thisgirlcan’. The Trust has four leisure facilities across South Ribble offering a variety of activities, including Zumba, Legs, Bums & Tums and high energy Les Mills group exercise classes. Other activities available such as squash, badminton and aqua aerobics offer an alternative workout option to the gym.
If an introduction to a particular sport or activity is needed, then South Ribble Community Leisure’s friendly gym instructors are on hand to provide advice and support. To see all of South Ribble Community Leisure’s facilities and opportunities, visit www.southribbleleisure.com.
The Chairman of South Ribble Community Leisure Trust commented “Sport England’s growing insight, especially into younger women, shows that many of the barriers encountered are emotional as well as practical – how they feel about sport is as important as finding a convenient, affordable option. We are hopeful that the campaign will inspire women and girls within our local community and liberate them from fear of judgement to join us in our centres and get involved.”
There is a huge social media drive behind the Sport England campaign using the hashtag #ThisGirlCan to get women talking and sharing their thoughts and experiences.
Join us at Facebook at GymInSouthRibble or on Twitter @gyminSRibble where we will be supporting this inspiring campaign and showing you how to get involved at your local leisure centre.
Research carried out by Sport England has revealed that 2 million fewer women are regularly participating in sport or exercise than men, despite 75 per cent of women aged 14 to 40 saying they’d like to do more. Further research identified that it is fear of judgment that prevents many women from doing exercise.
