Women & Girls in manchester

In the context of participation in sport and physical activity, Manchester is committed to closing the current gender gap and persuade more women and young girls to get active. 
MCRactive want to make this message very clear - 'everything counts' and women and girls are encouraged to get active however and whenever they can - including in the park, at home, on the school run, in the workplace and lots more. We hope we can get women and girls in Manchester moving, regardless of shape, size and ability.
Our aim is to make clear the benefits of sport and activity, for participation not only improve women's own physical and mental health but we know the influence women often have within their own families and how their involvement will often encourage others to join in too. 
To all the women and girls out there, we're here to support you to try something new or return to something you loved before, through the huge range of activities available. Check out the information below to find out what you can get involved in.

No one gets to choose how you exercise other than you. Your body, your call. And whatever that looks like, This Girl Can think it’s worth celebrating.
We’re huge supporters of This Girl Can, who believe there’s no “right” way to get active. However you jiggle, kick, lift, stretch, or sprint, it’s time to get moving how you damn please. This Girl Can have put together a series of resources which you can view below by clicking the link:
Home Workout Hub - A home workout hub which embeds all of the best YouTube fitness videos in one place in a searchable and intuitive way. Allowing women to discover what works best for them.

Running & Jogging - Simple, cheap and effective. Running includes quick walking, jogging, running and racing – it really doesn’t matter how fast or slow you are. Just find what works for you, by building up gradually.
Walking - Simple, free and one of the easiest ways to get active. Brisk walking means picking up the pace to get your heart rate going to unlock the most health benefits.
Cycling - Not only is it a cheap mode of transport, cycling is also a great way to challenge yourself with something new! There are lots of different types of cycling to choose from, from road cycling to mountain biking and track cycling to BMX, but don’t let that overwhelm you – sometimes the best place to start is by dusting off the old saddle and just getting out there.

Disney Dance Alongs - Disney dance routines to help you get active with your kids.

If you're pregnant, the Chief Medical Officer's (CMO's) advice is to start gradually if you weren't active prior to pregnancy, and if you were then to keep going but listen to your body and adapt.
Staying active during pregnancy helps with mood, sleep and reduces the risk of high blood pressure, diabetes and weight gain.
