Okay, come on girls we can’t be having this…apparently lads are doing better than us at being active!
We are hearing that only 15% of girls aged 13-16 are doing enough exercise. We don’t believe it ourselves, but we obviously have to start doing something to prove the statistics wrong!
So if you tremble at the sight of the treadmill, can’t stand the thought of team sports, or if getting hot and sweaty at the gym is like one of those bad dreams you get when you’re stressed… bear with us, you still have options.
Some girls stay away from organised sports – only to fall in love with yoga, dancing or an online exercise class, while others find their happy place on a bike ride with mates, rollerblading along the prom, or swimming at the local pool. There’s always something you can do!
Get involved with #ThisGirlCan
This Girl Can Wirral wants to challenge these so-called sporty stereotypes and surveys and get more girls active – and who better to encourage teenage girls in Wirral to get moving, than teenage girls in Wirral!
If you are between 13 and 16 and fancy being part of making headlines for Wirral girls, all you need to do is get you and your mates down to The Yog Bar in Hoylake, get your fave fro-yo in one of our branded tubs, take a selfie in the selfie mirror and send it to The Yog Bar Twitter or Instagram account using #YogBarselfiemirror.
A lucky 30 girls (in groups of mates) will be emailed after the 24th Feb with a VIP invite to the launch…. #WirralGirlsCan!
