#ACTiV8TV ♀ Cheshire Girls Can with .@R_S_P_H .@Her_MoJo

13:00 Guys & Dolls hair salon a great place for Public Health in @ActiveCheshire

ACTIVE Cheshire supports #ACTIV8afriend - a gentle 'nudge' every month to help get more women more ACTIVE!

ACTIVE Cheshire & The Royal Society for Public Health are working closely to use diet and activity to build healthier communities.  This video shows how local engagement through simple locations such as hair salons can form a hub to develop community public health knowledge.

RSPH research explores how businesses on the high street can impact the health of the public and includes league tables ranking the 'unhealthiest' high streets across London and the UK. The report also includes a range of measures to make high streets more health promoting, including:

  • Local authorities to be given greater planning powers to prevent the proliferation of betting shops, payday lenders and fast food outlets
  • Public health criteria to be a condition of licensing for all types of business
  • Mandatory food hygiene ratings linked to calorie and nutrition labelling for fast food outlets
  • A limit of 5% of each type of business on a high street in order to avoid oversaturation and provide affordable choice
  • Legislation to enable local councils to set their own differential business rates to encourage healthier outlets and discourage those that are detrimental to health.

The Royal Society for Public Health - an independent charity dedicated to the promotion and protection of collective human health and wellbeing. Follow on Twitter - @R_S_P_H MORE INFO HERE

Your Women's Sport & Fitness TV

Promote your 'Women get ACTIVE' and 'sports-nudge' videos on ACTiV8TV 

WSNet has set up ACTiV8TV as part of the #ACTIV8afriend programme.  Once a month we encourage women & girls to get ACTIVE together.  #ACTIV8afriend is a 'roll out' of @WomenSportsWeek. A FREE, non-proprietary, community-programme designed to get more women, more ACTIVE and help clubs/classes get more members by making an 'offer' once a month to those who bring a friend.

YOUR women's Sport/Fit TV Channel - on-line from 1st-8th of every month

We run ACTiV8TVbetween 1st-8th of each month in the build up to the ACTIV8th of EVERY month.  So many clubs and organisations have set up their own promotional videos. These have flowed out of programmes such as #LIKEaGIRL & #ThisGIRLCan. But how many of these videos get watched - often on YouTube but can’t be found.  We search You Tube for suitable coaching/training or motivational videos and schedule them ever hour from the FIRST of the month until the ACTIV8th.  There's a 'snapshot' below of recent 'broadcast' schedules.

You can help us to help you get more women more ACTIVE by sending your training, diet or ACTIVE promotional video ready for 'broadcast' next month.

WSNet doesn’t charge for this service but we do reserve the right to reject programmes without reason.

Promote your video on #ACTIV8TV. Send a link to jo.c@wsnet.co.uk, your Twitter @Handle and some info about your club/class.

#ACTiV8TV ♀ with .@_TOUGH_GIRL #ACTIV8aFriend & climbs Snowdon

10:00 Tough Girls take you up Snowdon - safely!

11:00

Tough Girl Podcast supports #ACTIV8afriend - a gentle 'nudge' every month to help getmore women more ACTIVE!

Sarah Williams' Tough Girl Podcast is all about motivating and inspiring women & girls. Join her on the way up Snowdon - with Tough Girls.

There are lots of routes up Snowdon make sure you pick the right route for you and your party. The routes are all of various lengths and difficulties. Pick the route which fits your experience level. The Llanberis Route is one of the most popular routes and is one of the easiest. This can get very busy during the summer and the weekends. All of the routes are signposted at the start. 



If you do the Llanberis Path, get to the car park early, it fills up fast. We got there about 8.30 am which was just about perfect. Fifteen minutes after that it started to get really busy with people queuing to get in.The Llanberis Path is about 9 miles there and back and will take around six hours to walk. The ascent is 975 metres. 



Put Snowdon Mountain Railway into your sat nav and the car park is opposite the station.The car park costs £7 for the day and with that you get a £4 voucher for the Royal Victoria Hotel.



You can do the walk in trainers, but I would recommend walking boots. The pathways can be rocky and uneven and it would be very easy to twist an ankle. Having comfy walking boots with ankle support is a must. Wear sunscreen even if it's not sunny, you will catch the sun through the clouds. Check the weather before you go the weather can be unpredictable on Snowdon and can change very quickly. Stick to the pathways.



There are not many places on the way up or down to do to the toilet, trying to go outside can be difficult if you’re a girl as there are not many rocks you can go behind.Go for layers instead of big heavy jumpers, as the weather can change quickly. One minute you're hot and sweaty the next your freezing cold as the sun goes behing the clouds. Take enough water with you. I would recommend about two litres. A camel pack is ideal as you can keep sipping as you walk, instead of having to get a bottle out of your bag every ten minutes or so.



Take a hat and gloves with you, it can get a lot colder the higher up you get and you want to keep your extremities warm. Look up and around you every once in a while, you can get so focused on walking you can spend the whole day just looking at the ground and where your going to place your feet next you can miss out of the gorgeous views!



The summit as Snowdon can get very busy and you'll have to queue to get a picture at the very top.

  • “We wanted to raise awareness in women’s sport and to encourage more women to go into coaching no matter what their size. 
  • Tees Valley Sport worked closely with groups of women who have suffered from domestic violence or just low confidence to prove that anyone can find an activity they enjoy. The video shows women from across Teesside exercising in ways that feel comfortable for them. 
  • Netball coach Faye Summerhill appears at the beginning of the video. She said: “We got involved particularly because of the bad press the area is getting at the moment. “I don’t think there’s enough about the good stuff going on, it’s all negative. “The more women that get into sport, the more positive it will be for the area.”

#ACTiV8TV ♀ Third trimester pregnancy workout - exercise ball & dumbbells .@kimmy_fitness @Her_MoJo

13:00 keep your MoJo during pregnancy

KimmyFitness supports #ACTIV8afriend - a gentle 'nudge' every month to help get more women, more ACTIVE

Welcome to Kimmyfitness. My world of my work combined with my life= mummy fitness. You will find lots of workout videos that you can safely do through out your pregnancy and post pregnancy too. There are step by step workout videos and short clips of workouts you can do. Please feel free to comment, share and subscribe!

This is a gentle full body THIRD TRIMESTER pregnancy workout

using an exercise ball which provides great comfort and support. You will also need some dumbbells or water-bottles(as weights) self preference and depending where you are at with your fitness levels. This is a step-by-step video that you can do with me. It can be 12minutes long or 24minutes long depending whether you wish to do one or two rounds. I would recommend 2 rounds but it is completely up to you and how you feel. 

Your third trimester is very demanding so you have to listen to your body. However keeping as active as you can will massively benefit you. 

Please feel free to contact me at any time; kimmyfitnesspt@gmail.com ! Make sure your midwife is aware you are exercising, and please do not ignore any abnormal Pain or discomfort. Keep hydrated throughout and take breaks when needed. Enjoy 

Do be careful training #postpregnancy because our body still continues to have the relaxin hormone in, which makes our bodies very flexible and our joints quite loose. This is why I would advise no heavy lifting within the first few months especially if you are new to exercise! You know your body so please go with the options that are given if you need to! Remember we have all started from the beginning

In the last two exercises feel free to place your foot down if you need too - then aim to keep your foot off the ground through the exercise. Balance work is so amazing for your tummy! 

If you are ready to start my MummyFitness postpregnancy 6 month exercise program please get in touch; 
my mummyfitness@gmail.com All mummies are welcome.
