Katie Ward


Age: 34

Occupation: Co-owner CrossFit Nottingham

I think the adverts have encouraged myself and women to throw caution to wind and go out there and do it! Before becoming the co-owner at CrossFit Nottingham I spent 12 years in an office based job. I truly enjoyed my role but it did lend itself to a sedentary lifestyle, I drove to work, sat at the desk, ate a cake or two, then drove home. Within the role there was a pressure to look a certain way, fit into certain clothes and carry a particular lifestyle. Since changing my role and being able to encourage women to take part in a healthier more active lifestyle my whole outlook has changed. The This Girl Can campaign hits the nail on the head. It embodies the idea that fitness, sports and activities are for everyone and I 100% agree with this. The campaign has made me realise there is more to being a woman than what society seems to dictate, consciously or sub-consciously.

Age: 59

Ten years ago my oldest school friend persuaded me to get on a bike for the first time in 30 years. Since then Id dabbled a bit but never really picked up momentum.

Then a few weeks ago, inspired by the fab This Girl Can ads, I signed up for a SkyRide.

I got out of breath. My bum hurt, my chain snapped (unfixable!).

The group was fab, insisting theyd go nowhere without me. The leader, Jo towed me three-and- a -half miles to prove it.

And I got hooked! I've been cycling longer and further -every few days since. Ive joined Nottingham Girls Can and at 59 I feel Ive finally found my thing - and some fab new friends!

Ive done my second fund-raising ride and next year that old school pal and I celebrate our 60th birthdays cycling six rides in six counties over six weekends!
