This Girl Can is a new campaign by Sports England that aims to celebrate active women who are doing their thing and feeling good no matter how they look or how sweaty they get.

Lots of women want to improve their overall fitness but are worried about what people will think of their bodies when they exercise.

These new videos are keen to challenge that perspective and beat the body hang-ups that hold us back:

We may not all look like Jessica Ennis-Hill when we work out, but there’s nothing wrong with being less than picture-perfect.

Here at Essex Baby HQ we’re going to take a leaf out of mum Kelly’s book and squeeze in a bit more exercise-play into our weekly routine. Who else is up for it? #thisgirlcan
