The goal of This Girl Can Essex is to show how physical activity can be fun, enjoyable and sociable. It’s about real women of all shapes and sizes and all levels of ability. It doesn’t matter what you like like. No judgement – you’re doing it for yourself and that deserves to be celebrated!

Whether you are cycling to work, running with your pooch, walking the kids to school where you can or heading to a class with friends, we are celebrating the amazing way you can fit exercise into your life. No one gets to choose how you exercise, other than you.

However you jiggle, kick, lift, stretch or sprint, it’s time to get moving and grooving, how you damn please.

Read about our This Girl Can Essex ambassadors and the role they play in our communities as well as our Women Like Us festival events that take place a few times a year around the county – bringing all women together to celebrate being us!
