  • “We wanted to raise awareness in women’s sport and to encourage more women to go into coaching no matter what their size. 
  • Tees Valley Sport worked closely with groups of women who have suffered from domestic violence or just low confidence to prove that anyone can find an activity they enjoy. The video shows women from across Teesside exercising in ways that feel comfortable for them. 
  • Netball coach Faye Summerhill appears at the beginning of the video. She said: “We got involved particularly because of the bad press the area is getting at the moment. “I don’t think there’s enough about the good stuff going on, it’s all negative. “The more women that get into sport, the more positive it will be for the area.”

Promote your 'Women get ACTIVE' and 'sports-nudge' videos on ACTiV8TV 

WSNet has set up ACTiV8TV as part of the #ACTIV8afriend programme.  Once a month we encourage women & girls to get ACTIVE together.  #ACTIV8afriend is a 'roll out' of @WomenSportsWeek. A FREE, non-proprietary, community-programme designed to get more women, more ACTIVE and help clubs/classes get more members by making an 'offer' once a month to those who bring a friend.

YOUR women's Sport/Fit TV Channel - on-line from 1st-8th of every month

We run ACTiV8TVbetween 1st-8th of each month in the build up to the ACTIV8th of EVERY month.  So many clubs and organisations have set up their own promotional videos. These have flowed out of programmes such as #LIKEaGIRL & #ThisGIRLCan. But how many of these videos get watched - often on YouTube but can’t be found.  We search You Tube for suitable coaching/training or motivational videos and schedule them ever hour from the FIRST of the month until the ACTIV8th.  There's a 'snapshot' below of recent 'broadcast' schedules.

You can help us to help you get more women more ACTIVE by sending your training, diet or ACTIVE promotional video ready for 'broadcast' next month.

WSNet doesn’t charge for this service but we do reserve the right to reject programmes without reason.

Promote your video on #ACTIV8TV. Send a link to jo.c@wsnet.co.uk, your Twitter @Handle and some info about your club/class.

#ACTIV8TV - #RUNNING problems from Achilles Tendonitis? - exercise via @SundialClinic She's found .@Her_MoJo

12:00 Great stretches for running & better movement

12:00

The Sundial Clininc supports #ACTIV8afriend - a gentle 'nudge' every month to help getmore women more ACTIVE!
(This article is for guidance only. You should also seek medical advcie if you have concerns about injury.)

Stretching may help reduce injury and improve flexibility in runners. Most runners include stretches in their routine. It is important to prepare your muscles for a run by gently warming up and keep flexible by doing these stretches. These exercises put together by our physio can help stretch the main running muscles.

These stretches should be held for over 30 seconds – don’t rush. Aim to do these exercises once a day although doing them twice a day is three times as beneficial. Stay relaxed and breathe out as you develop the stretch. Develop the stretches gently to avoid overstretching and injuring yourself.

The 3 stretches we recommend for running are: hamstring, hip flexor and calf and here is how to do these.

You can download the stretches for running for free here VBHM stretches

Hamstring stretch

Dynamic hamstring stretch

Sets three each side

Hold 30 to 60 seconds

  • straighten one leg, grabbed the back of your thigh and target your leg towards your chest until you feel a gentle stretch.
  • Bend your leg at the knee slightly coming off the stretch
  • repeat by pushing your heel towards the ceiling
  • alternate your legs

Note: avoid kicking violently or arching your lower back

If it’s shaking your doing it well!

Hip flexor stretch

Hip flexor stretch

Sets three each side

Hold 30 to 60 seconds

  • hands on hips, tuck your tailbone under to flat on your back
  • lean forwards while maintaining a straight posture and keeping your head up
  • avoid arching your low back or letting your hips roll forwards

Note: do it next to a wall if you feel out of balance

Calf stretch

Hip flexor stretch

Sets three each side

Hold 30 to 60 seconds

  • have front toes and knee touching the wall
  • move your foot back a little until you can just about keep your knee against the wall and heel on the floor
