This Girl Can celebrates and supports all women to embrace being physically active in a way that suits them. Whether it’s a little or a lot, what matters is getting some movement into your day.
While many of us know that exercising is important for our physical and mental health, that doesn’t change the fact that half of us aren’t getting enough exercise each week.
In 2021, This Girl Can – Victoria inspired almost 340,000 women to get active. That’s 1 in 6 Victorian women aged 18-65 getting more active because of this campaign.
Victorian women said that a big part of not trying new activities or getting involved in sport is a fear of being judged, or not being fit enough to start.
Not to mention, twice as many women than men put off getting active because they’re worried about what other people think.
A little can go a long way. Whether you walk around the block once a day, go for a swim once a week or visit the gym every day we want to hear about it.
