The Cheshire Girls supports #ACTIV8afriend - a gentle 'nudge' every month to help get more women more ACTIVE!
A group of previously inactive women who have changed their lives for the better with support from Active Cheshire! The innovative project was targeted at women in a deprived local area and they were recruited through the local hairdresser. 6 months on, 18 women are still attending and 2 who have left continue to exercise. Over the summer the group are taking part in a parent and child bootcamp as well as their weekly session. The changes they have made to their lives with both exercise and healthy eating have been huge.
