Hey, girl – heard you were into tough fitness! Wanna come get tough with me at an England Rugby Warrior Camp?
Rugby is the ultimate tough team sport, and an amazing opportunity to see just how functional your fitness is – and now’s your chance to try it out with England Rugby, for free.
I’ve signed up for the Garstang Camp on 24th August, and I’d love it if you could join me – if you can’t make that Camp, then there are loads more across the country over the next few weeks. Read on to find out why you should try this sport out and how you can release your own Inner Warrior!
This post is an ad in partnership with England Rugby
By now you will have heard of the This Girl Can campaign – going into its second season, it’s everywhere from TV to viral on social media. The ad came as a reaction to the difference of two million more men than women playing sport, and also from research by Women in Sport which found out teenage girls avoid sport and PE as they felt getting sweaty, messy and dirty was unfeminine, and they also felt that boys got more encouragement to participate in sport.
This Girl Can addresses those barriers by showing real women being active and loving it, whether they’re sweaty, jiggling, or red-faced. You can now be part of the campaign yourself by creating your own This Girl Can ad, like mine, above. I was recently a part of a radio documentary exploring why teenage girls try to get out of PE and sport. You can hear me lisp my way through the last couple of minutes of the show, talking about my experiences of sport in school, and the advice I’d give to my own fourteen-year-old self.
