#HERMoJo - ♀VIDEO Cheshire Girls Can with .@R_S_P_H .@Her_MoJo

ACTIVE Cheshire supports #ACTIV8afriend - a gentle 'nudge' every month to help get more women more ACTIVE!

ACTIVE Cheshire & The Royal Society for Public Health are working closely to use diet and activity to build healthier communities.  This video shows how local engagement through simple locations such as hair salons can form a hub to develop community public health knowledge.

RSPH research explores how businesses on the high street can impact the health of the public and includes league tables ranking the 'unhealthiest' high streets across London and the UK. The report also includes a range of measures to make high streets more health promoting, including:

  • Local authorities to be given greater planning powers to prevent the proliferation of betting shops, payday lenders and fast food outlets
  • Public health criteria to be a condition of licensing for all types of business
  • Mandatory food hygiene ratings linked to calorie and nutrition labelling for fast food outlets
  • A limit of 5% of each type of business on a high street in order to avoid oversaturation and provide affordable choice
  • Legislation to enable local councils to set their own differential business rates to encourage healthier outlets and discourage those that are detrimental to health.

#HERMoJo Four Post-Pregnancy core exercises .@kimmy_fitness

KimmyFitness supports #ACTIV8afriend - a gentle 'nudge' every month to help get more women, more ACTIVE

Welcome to Kimmyfitness. My world of my work combined with my life= mummy fitness. You will find lots of workout videos that you can safely do through out your pregnancy and post pregnancy too. There are step by step workout videos and short clips of workouts you can do. Please feel free to comment, share and subscribe!

Here are 4 Post pregnancy core exercises with options.
You can do these exercises before your 6 weeks post birth check to help start strengthening and rebuilding your core. After birth our core is very weak and requires specific training to help rebuild and repair in the correct way. These are 4 exercises that can help, however you need to be cautious and concentrate whilst doing them. Think about your breathe and engaging in your abdominals(which feels very different at this stage however you will feel and notice the change) PLEASE DO NOT ignore any abnormal pain! And do let your midwife know you have started core repair work!

Do be careful training #postpregnancy because our body still continues to have the relaxin hormone in, which makes our bodies very flexible and our joints quite loose. This is why I would advise no heavy lifting within the first few months especially if you are new to exercise! You know your body so please go with the options that are given if you need to! Remember we have all started from the beginning

In the last two exercises feel free to place your foot down if you need too - then aim to keep your foot off the ground through the exercise. Balance work is so amazing for your tummy!

DCNF - on TV & Radio

12:00 - Dumisani Chauke Netball Foundation on TV

08:49

            

            

DCNF launched in 2018 with a fanfare of TV/Radio and media overage

DCNF was officially launched at Magangeni Primary School in Malamulele, Limpopo. The location of the launch was of huge significance as this is where the founder of DCNF was discovered and played her first ever netball match.

Dumisani now regularly appears on TV & Radio promoting netball in South Africa, the benefits of netball for empowering girls in rural communities and – of course the Netball Foundation.

You can help us support DCNF
You can help The Women’s Sports Network translate NETBALLMoJo into to Zulu and have it modified culturally and practically for a Zulu audience in rural communities. £3,000 will modify NETBALLMoJo, re-print and deliver 500 copies to those communities to encourage girls into netball, give them a better understanding of personal hygiene, help engage with local elders and potentially attract new sponsors.

Donate to the DCNF Crowdfunding program – HERE

DCNF - Case study - Dumi on TV & Radio

Increasingly Dumisani Chauke is asked to speak on national radio and TV. Here she is taking Massi Metro Radio about the Foundation and the opportunities it brings  for girls in South Africa who want to play netball and see Dumi as a role model for the game. And again in discussion with “DJ Sbu Breakfast” show where they chatted about  the opportunity to speak about the foundation.

#HerMoJo ♀VIDEO Whoooosh - #ACTIV8aFriend with a .@PowerhoopUK session

11:00 Get into the swing with Powerhoops

Powerhoop supports #ACTIV8afriend - a gentle 'nudge' every month to help get more women more ACTIVE!

Fitness League demostrate one of their brillaint routines - hoops!

  • Lose inches around your waist while having fun in a Powerhoop group exercise class. Our certified instructors are trained to teach exciting, effective classes that give their members fast results. You can find a class in your area at www.powerhoop.com, or ask your local gym to check out the Powerhoop Instructor Training Course.
  • Fitness experts claim that it's impossible to "spot reduce." Powerhoop is proving them wrong.Powerhooping may be fun, but it's a fitness activity that can be taken seriously. A new study by researchers at Canada’s University of Waterloo Spine Biomechanics Laboratory, one of the world's foremost sports medical research facilities, has now confirmed that regular Powerhooping causes the waist to shrink. The subjects were fourteen mildly overweight women who used a Powerhoop for fifteen minutes per day, five days per week, over a period of six weeks. The researchers collected several types of data, including calories burned, subcutaneous fat measurements, subjects’ body measurements and muscle activation.
  • On average, subjects experienced a significant decrease in waist and hip circumference, and waist‐to‐hip ratio. Average reduction in waist size was 3.35 cm, with three of the fourteen subjects losing between 5 and 7.5 cm around the waist. The hips also shrank, but not as much. (The "hourglass shape" was therefore accentuated.

Pole fitness is all about having fun with the added bonus of getting a workout! It is a mixture of gymnastics and dance on a vertical pole and uses strength, agility and cardiovascular fitness. It is the fastest and most fun way to tone up, especially targeting 'difficult' areas such as the thighs, arms, abs and bum. It is also a fantastic way to increase your confidence in a friendly and fun environment.
 
Class activities include spins, holds, strength training, floorwork, headstands/handstands, inverts, tricks, and doubles acrobatics (acro-pole). I teach men and women of all ages and all abilities, from complete beginner to advanced. Everyone is welcome!
