Get Active! Physical Literacy for Women
Get Active! is a program that teaches women how to be physically active. Fewer women than men are getting the recommended amount of physical activity. This gender gap can be due to unique barriers a woman faces, such as family commitments or missing out on learning fundamentals of physical literacy at an early age. This initiative aims to reduce psychological, social, cultural and financial barriers to participation. Build physical literacy and confidence in trying new fitness activities with Get Active!.
There are 3 components of this 3-month program starting in January 2021: mentorship, social activities and subsidized activities.
This initiative is led by Josie Chow, UNA Program Coordinator. Josie has over 10 years experience in health, fitness and recreation. After earning her Bachelor’s of Kinesiology degree at UBC, she worked as a Kinesiologist and Personal Trainer before returning to working in Recreation. Josie is passionate about helping others live a more physically activity lifestyle. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for inquiries.
