#HERMoJo .@BoroGirlsCan grow their confidence through sport with .@TeesValleySport

20:00 Reach Coaches on self defence & Thai Boxing

21:00

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

  • Self defence with Thai Boxing has helped women in Teesside grow in confidence and become leaders in their community. Getting active, coaching and helping friends and neighbours makes a huge difference to their lives and those of friends and neighbours.
  • “We wanted to raise awareness in women’s sport and to encourage more women to go into sport no matter what their size. “The video covers all ages and abilities. "It turned into a much bigger video than we imagined. “The message we wanted to get across was the amount of activities that go on. “It’s moving away from your traditional sports as well, and finding sports for the modern woman, like buggy pushing and roller skating!”
  • 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.”

#HERMoJo - Exhausted Athlete? Female Athlete Triad with .@WSNet & .@FemaleTriad

12:00 - The Female Athlete Triad meets HERMoJo!

13:00

The Female Athlete Triad is a syndrome of three interrelated conditions that female athletes & players often expereince.

They exist on a continuum of severity, including: Energy Deficiency with or without Disordered Eating, Menstrual Disturbances/Amenorrhea, Bone Loss/Osteoporosis.

Read more about Female Athlete Triad - extract from MoJoManuals - helping teen girls enjoy competitive sport by overcoming some of the many issues they face!

The advice we offer in the Feeling Good zone – bone health, healthy food, rehydration, the menstrual cycle and smart training – is there to  help you train well and support you being a young woman as well as an athlete. We want you to be on top form and avoid habits which can lead to lack of energy, tiredness, disrupted periods - and even fragile bones. Any combination of disordered eating, menstrual
problems and bone health in female athletes (plus any associated energy deficit/lowered performance) is often described as the ‘Female Athlete Triad’.

Food and water to fuel your exercise - Eating the right foods at the right times will help avoid ‘Female Athlete Triad’ – other signs to look out  for are: feeling overly tired from excessive training, over exercising or decreasing the amount of food you eat. Abnormal eating habits restricting foods, skipping meals, eating disorders) can also result F.A.T. symptoms – causing low energy levels. These can disrupt your period and increase risk of injury. So, eat and drink smart to train smart! 

Keep track of your menstrual cycle - By using a period tracker app (or tracking the start and end dates of you period in a diary or calendar) you will be able to work out your menstrual pattern. Irregular or multiple missed periods can impact bone health by disrupting oestrogen levels. If you have missed periods or your periods haven’t started by the time you are 15 OR if you began breast development more than three years ago and haven’t started your periods, it’s worth arranging a check-up just to make sure everything is OK.

Bone growth – your bones are growing fast in the early teens so, again a healthy diet that includes calcium (see page 32), sensible training and period tracking are all essential to keep them strong.

#HERMoJo Four Post-Pregnancy core exercises .@kimmy_fitness

15:00 find your MoJo post 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!

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.

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
