This Girl Can returns to Nottingham

May 15 2020

This Girl Can 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.

Since This Girl Can launched, nearly 3 million women have been inspired to get involved in physical activity, but it isn’t stopping there. With a new drive in Nottingham comes a fresh approach and the ambition to reach all areas of Nottingham.

We welcome Charm, our new Community Motivator for This Girl Can Nottingham.

Charm’s role is getting Nottingham active, and she’s been proving how good she is at it through the Covid-19 lockdown, getting whole neighbourhoods and even the Police moving their bodies (at a safe social distance).

To connect with Charm and other Nottingham women on their activity journey, find inspiration to be active, or share your journey (you can post as much or as little as you want) visit the ‘This Girl Can Nottingham’ Facebook group.

Women come in all shapes and sizes with all abilities and from all backgrounds. Some of us are expert sportswomen, some of us really aren’t. It doesn’t matter. We’re just happy that you’re getting active. If you’re still not sure that you can, we’re here to help you to figure out the way of getting active that’s right for you.

Many women are put off taking part in physical activity due to a fear of judgement, or because they have other priorities, often putting others first.

This Girl Can is about sharing real stories of women getting active or playing sport in the way that’s right for them, in all its sweaty, red-faced, jiggly glory.

We never judge, and we don’t care what other people think.
