Are you inspired? Team GB Women
Olympics 2012 is a first for women, as it is the first time that women will be represented in every country.
And in Team GB, women make up 48% of the team which means that us girls may well bring home more medals than the men.
And we are doing pretty well so far, with Rebecca Adlington scooping Bronze in the 400metres freestyle, while Lizzie Armistead scooped Silver in cycling at the weekend.
‘I’m pretty chuffed,’ she said. ‘I feel increadible, really, really happy. Hopefully, I have got the GB ball rolling now.’
But what is even more valuable than the medals is the inspirational effect that watching these women may have on women all around the world.
Think it’s just winning medals that creates happiness? Any exercise gives you a sense of accomplishment and fills you with feel good endrophins. Which is far more valuable than a Jimmy Choo pair of shoes, or Burberry handbag.
To help spread the empowerment of women through sport and exercise, FitBitch Boot Camp and running club will give one free session to a running club Wednesday night training session, or a Tuesday night Boxing Belles session (both at 7.30pm) to every new member whenever a Team GB woman wins a medal.
All you have to do is email us with the subject matter, Go Girls, and we will give you a date in the next available sessions (spaces are limited).
Together with the Women’s Sport and Fitness Foundation (WSFF), which has launched its Go Girl campaign, to help keep the legagcy of London 2012 going for longer than just the next six weeks, we hope this will help women from all different walks of life realise that they can become an inspiration to others too.
Terms and Conditions apply. All applications for free spaces must be made before the Closing Ceremony on August 12 and is open to women only, when a TEam GB female athlete scoops a medal. One session per person only.
