Jump to This Girl Can Week timetable 2023


A community of women getting active together in a safe space, giving judgement the finger and enjoying exercise in all its sweaty, jiggly glory.

Group exercise classes that are actually designed with beginners in mind. Classes where getting it wrong is totally alright. A collective where everyone is welcome and where we help women to relieve stress, build confidence, connect with others and feel like they belong.

It’s not about reshaping bodies to fit with some unrealistic ideal. It’s about reshaping how women experience group exercise and empowering them to show up unapologetically as themselves, relatable bodies, sweat patches and all.

Now, picture This Girl Can Classes. Together, we’re bringing this vision to glorious, sweaty, active life.

We’re breaking down barriers and advocating for exercise to be enjoyed not endured. Smashing obstacles that get in the way of women getting into group exercise.

Offering women a (very) warm welcome to the world of group exercise and being pivotal in a long and happy life of moving however they damn well like.

This Girl Can

Sport England

No one gets to choose how you exercise other than you. Your body, your call. And whatever that looks like, we think it's worth celebrating. This Girl Can, funded by The National Lottery, believes that there's no "right" way to get active. Visit thisgirlcan.co.uk to find out more about the campaign.
