How many of us have stayed out of the gym for fear of judgement? You’re unhappy with your body, but you don’t want anyone to see just how much you jiggle under those clothes. You love the feeling of free swim, but hate the cellulite in your thighs. Well guess what, the jiggling’s what it’s all about. We are women, and real women sweat and wiggle and grunt. It’s time we started appreciating our bodies without the fear. If an active lifestyle will make you happy – who cares who’s watching?
This Girl Can, a national campaign developed by Sport England and a wide range of partnership organisations, has given women a new voice. It’s a celebration of active women all over the UK who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, or how they look while it’s goin’ down. Check out their individual journeys here, and enjoy the best 1 minute and 30 seconds of workout history below – it’s a hot, sweaty, wonderful mess. I promise.
