We Move, She Moves is trying to make it as easy as possible for women to take part in physical activity. We want to help you overcome any obstacles that may stop you from being active. These can be physical barriers – such as location or time – or emotional ones, such as a lack of confidence or fear of judgement. To stay healthy, adults should try to be active daily and aim to do 150 minutes of physical activity over a week.

It’s medically proven that people who do regular physical activity and exercise have:

  • Stronger hearts
  • Stronger bones
  • Lower risk of being diagnosed with colon or breast cancer
  • Reduced likelihood of chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke
  • Reduced risk of falls (among older adults)

Exercise is the miracle cure we’ve always had, but we’re neglecting to take our recommended dose. The majority of our lifestyles are no longer physically demanding. Research suggests that many adults spend more than seven hours a day sitting down, at work, on transport or in their leisure time. People of all ages need to reduce their sedentary behaviour which is why we created We Move, She Moves.
