#HerMoJo - How Sports Impact the Lives of Women @Sham_Kohestani

11:00: TEDxUNC - Shamila Kohestani - How Sports Impact the Lives of Women

11:00

The captain of the first women's Afghan national soccer team and recipient of the 2006 Arthur Ashe Courage Award talks about growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan and the challenges facing women and girls in that environment. Kohestani discusses how playing soccer gave her confidence and courage to fight against oppression of women worldwide.



In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Your Women's Sport & Fitness TV

13:00

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.

#THISISNETBALL - The Knee PROGRAMME with .@TeamAntcliff, .@AussieDiamonds & NETBALLMoJo - @Vitality_UK .@NetballWorldCup #THISISNETBALL

13:00 - The AUS Knee Programme meets HerMoJo!

14:00

WSNet launches NETBALLMoJo in the lead up to the Vitality Netball World Cup - with support from Netball Australia

As we approach the Vitality Netball World Cup the Women's Sports Network prepares to launch NETBALLMoJo - the next in this empowering series of manuals designed to help teenage girls overcome some of the many issues they face as they engage in competitive sport. Covering a range of sports they investigate issues such as; body image, diet, breast health, fit or thin, social media, training with menstruation, coach attitude etc. All of which can often impact how girls engage/drop out of sport – and potentially go on to be elite athletes and confident, mature young women outside of sport.

Much of the NETBALLMoJo covers strength and agility from an injury prevention point of view and is hugely useful for young netballers to get off ‘on the right foot’!

Netball Australia developed the KNEE Programme which aims to reduce all lower body injuries across all levels of netball. Hear from Netball Australia's Head Physiotherapist Alanna Antcliff, Australian Diamonds head coach Lisa Alexander and Australian Diamonds shooter Erin Bell.

WSNet has, with the agreement of Netball Australia, drawn heavily on the Knee Programme and will be launching NETBALLMoJo – initially in English on 1st July in time for the World Cup on Liverpool 12-21 July. MORE INFO https://www.nwc2019.co.uk/

#HERMoJo - ♀ with Marathon Pioneer Kathrine Switzer .@261Fearless

16:15 Katherine Switzer's Boston Marathon Experience16

17:15

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

Switzer was born in Germany, the daughter of a major in the United States Army. Her family returned to the United States in 1949.[3] She graduated from George C. Marshall High School in Fairfax County, Virginia, then attended Syracuse University, where she studied journalism.She earned a bachelor's degree there in 1968 and a master's degree in 1972.

1967 Boston Marathon
While attending university, Switzer completed the race in 1967 under entry number 261 with the Syracuse Harriers athletic club, five years before women were officially allowed to compete in it. Her finishing time of approximately 4 hours and 20 minutes was nearly an hour behind the first female finisher, Bobbi Gibb (who ran unregistered). She registered under the gender-neutral "K. V. Switzer", which she says was not done to mislead the officials. She says she had long used "K. V. Switzer" to sign the articles she wrote for her university paper. Switzer was issued a number through an "oversight" in the entry screening process, and was treated as an interloper when the error was discovered. Race official Jock Semple attempted to physically remove her from the race. Switzer claims he shouted, "Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers." Switzer's boyfriend Tom Miller, who was running with her, shoved Semple aside and sent him flying, allowing her to proceed. Photographs taken of the incident made world headlines.

Afterwards, Boston Athletic Association director Will Cloney was asked his opinion of Switzer competing in the race. Cloney said, "Women can't run in the Marathon because the rules forbid it. Unless we have rules, society will be in chaos. I don't make the rules, but I try to carry them out. We have no space in the Marathon for any unauthorized person, even a man. If that girl were my daughter, I would spank her."

Because of her run, the AAU barred women from all competitions with male runners, violaters to lose the right to compete in any races. Switzer, with other women runners, tried to convince the Boston Athletic Association to allow women to participate in the marathon. Finally, in 1972, women were welcome to run the Boston Marathon officially for the first time ever. Jock Semple, the man who had previously attempted to remove Switzer from the race, was instrumental in this formal admission of female runners.

Later competition and work
Switzer was the women's winner of the 1974 New York City Marathon, with a time of 3:07:29 (59th overall). Her personal best time for the marathon distance is 2:51:37, at Boston in 1975.

Switzer was named Female Runner of the Decade (1967–77) by Runner’s World Magazine and received an Emmy for her work as a television commentator. She wrote Running and Walking for Women over 40 in 1997. She released her memoir, Marathon Woman, in April 2007 on the 40th anniversary of her first running the Boston Marathon. In April 2008, Marathon Woman won the Billie Award for journalism for its inspiring portrayal of women in sports. When visiting the Boston Marathon, Switzer is glad to see other female runners:

'When I go to the Boston Marathon now, I have wet shoulders—women fall into my arms crying. They're weeping for joy because running has changed their lives. They feel they can do anything.'
She was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame in 2011 for creating a social revolution by empowering women around the world through running. Since 1967, she has worked to improve running opportunities for women in different parts of the world.

11:30 Ping Pong Pubs & Cafes - fun getting ACTIVE

12:30

LOOP Social Table Tennis programme supports #HERMoJo - more women more ACTIVE!

At LOOP, we believe table tennis is ideally suited to cafés, bars and pubs, and similar venues.  The game is as sociable or competitive as the players want it to be and a single table can be enjoyed by up to 20 people at any one time.

There are lots of ping pong pubs and cafés already popping up all over the place.  

♦ Table Tennis is a vital part of pub and café culture and leads a return of pub games

♦ Pub table tennis tables are focal points where friends and strangers meet, laugh and play

♦ New forms of social leagues, ladders and cups thrive across every village, town and city

We’re already working with a number of independent bars, pub chains and breweries to build a thriving pub LOOP culture, where table tennis leads the way.

#HERMoJo Four Post-Pregnancy core exercises .@kimmy_fitness

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!

Here are 4 Post pregnancy core exercises with options.
You can do these exercises before your 6 weeks post birth check to help start strengthening and rebuilding your core. After birth our core is very weak and requires specific training to help rebuild and repair in the correct way. These are 4 exercises that can help, however you need to be cautious and concentrate whilst doing them. Think about your breathe and engaging in your abdominals(which feels very different at this stage however you will feel and notice the change) PLEASE DO NOT ignore any abnormal pain! And do let your midwife know you have started core repair work!

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;

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.
