It is a real honour to be involved with #ThisMMUGirlCan Week – working with the iconic and extremely inspiring This Girl Can campaign – at Manchester Metropolitan University – and it all kicks off today!
Tomorrow, female students and staff will be coming to my Tuesday evening Females In Training / F.I.T Classes to sign a pledge to break down barriers to participation in physical activity for women and girls, and to encourage everyone to get involved.

Last night I started the first session ‘Legs and Bums’ asking for a show of hands “Who knows the importance of today, globally?” And I was impressed to see that a lot of students knew that it was World Mental Health Day. I urged everyone to give themselves a pat on the back (which we all actually did lol) for turning up to classes like these, engaging in physical activity. We spoke about the importance of exercise and specifically group exercise, for lifting the mood and maintaining good mental wellbeing and I ensured that everyone will leave today’s sessions feeling great! I blasted loads of female fronted 90s house anthems (From Inner City – Good Life, to Black Box – Ride On Time) in the MMU Brooks Sports Hall and we got right into it! #feelgoodfitness #worldmentalhealthday
PT sessions with new clients ✅ done. One on one yoga session with one of my heroes Dana Baniel 🙌🏼 done. Now planning a really uplifting female fronted 90s house playlist for my FEMALES IN TRAINING CLASSES tonight at Manchester Metropolitan University! 18:00 Legs and Bums // 18:30 Ab Attack at Brooks Sports Hall.
Look how many staff and students came to my classes last week! I am so excited for tonight’s sessions! #femalesintrainingclasses #suchagoodfeeling #MMUSport #keepmoving #worldmentalhealthday
THERE ARE SO MANY BENEFITS to this simple and serene yoga pose. A perfect way to chill after your workout. After your cool down stretches, lay on the floor with your legs up against the wall for 10-15 minutes: https://www.doyouyoga.com/5-health-benefits-legs-wall-posture/
