“Hot and not bothered” – yeah, that’s us sweating and loving it at the end of a really, really good workout. As part of its This Girl Can campaign. Sport England has launched a new range of cool gym clothes for women in partnership with Marks & Spencer. Not only does the range of activewear look great, it also supports This Girl Can by raising funds to help women get involved in sport, exercise and getting active. Win!
The campaign is all about inspiring women – regardless of age, shape or size – to get active, and actually celebrating women in sport. Whether you love swimming, cycling helps you switch off or feel fantastic at the end of a boxing match/spinning class/game of tennis, This Girl Can! And the campaign has had a real impact too: in December 2015, Sport England’s Active People Survey revealed that the number of women playing sport and getting active once a week, every week, has increased by 148,700.
What’s more, the number of women playing sport is actually increasing faster than the number of men. Result! Of course, we’re not saying that you need a load of snazzy new gym gear if you want to get active, but the range is well-designed and made in performance fabrics – these are pieces that we’d definitely wear. That Hot And Not Bothered Gym Bag is just exactly what we’ve been looking for….
The This Girl Can range is available online and in selected Marks & Spencer stores in sizes 6-22. Sport England receives 8% of all sales to support This Girl Can projects which support and celebrate women getting active.
