#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)

#HerMoJo - Stories of Muslim Women in Sport

11:00 Sporting Sisters

11:00

This short documentary film, inspired by the 2012 Olympic Games, brings together archival research and interviews with different generations of Muslim women, to preserve their voices for future generations as part of a Heritage Lottery Funded Young Roots project.

The documentary takes a look at how fashion, specialist womens groups and cultural values have adapted to enable Muslim women to get involved in a range of sports, from cycling to boxing. It was filmed and produced by a group of young Muslim women over the past year with support from youth research charity Independent Academic Research Studies (IARS), London Metropolitan University and the Womens Library.

#HERMoJo - ♀ Get your ACTIVE message across to our #FemaleFriendly community on .@ACTIVE8TV

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.

#HERMoJo ♀ Loop #PINGPONG in the Bar with .@TableTennisENG

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

15:00 find your MoJo post pregnancy

16:00

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; 
my mummyfitness@gmail.com All mummies are welcome.

#HERMoJo - ♀ 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
