What is This Girl Can Eastleigh?
This Girl Can Eastleigh is a celebration of active women doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how much their bodies jiggle in the process. Our project is inspired by the national This Girl Can campaign, developed by Sport England, and proudly shouts that whatever your shape, ability or experience - sport and exercise can be a fun and enjoyable part of every woman's life.
Our feel-good campaign video features ordinary women taking part in Eastleigh-based classes, courses and clubs, as well as those who individually exercise in the Borough.
As part of this campaign, we aim to break down current barriers women face in taking part in regular exercise, and inspire them to take that first step.
Our Eastleigh resident champions have been recruited from our SportWorks and HealthWorks programmes as advocates for This Girl Can Eastleigh. Over the coming weeks, our champions will share their journeys, what made them take the first step towards a healthier lifestyle and how regular exercise has transformed their lives!
