I woke up this morning with a little pep in my step as I readied my sons for school because (1) Tuesdays are Zumba toning day (2) I had a personal training session after Zumba Toning (3) I kicked ass the past week with my eating and workouts. My morning was already going great and then I came across the “This Girl Can” campaign video developed by Sport England on my Facebook timeline.
Sure, there are motivational videos out there with women of all ethnicities and sizes but do they all
kick ass inspire and have Missy Elliott’s Get Your Freak On playing? Did I find myself applauding every.single.woman doing the darn thing in the video? Yes, yes I did.
This Girl Can celebrates the women who are doing their thing no matter how they do it, how they look or even how sweaty they get. They’re here to inspire us to wiggle, jiggle, move and prove that judgement is a barrier that can be overcome.
This video made fitness seem attainable for ALL. It is all about the big and small triumphs. It encourages women to put yourself out there, move, and give zero cares about what anyone else thinks. Fear restricts some from taking part in exercise. I know I’ve been there! You can do your thing no matter how well you do it, how you look, or how red your face gets!
I was inspired and I may have dropped it like it’s hot in Zumba even lower because of these women in #ThisGirlCan video!
