At Fit4Life we were over the moon (and slightly green with envy) to receive this picture of some of the girls from Basildon, from one of our pilot projects now doing none other than scuba diving as part of their co-created physical activity intervention!! ⠀
As we have mentioned before, Fit4Life approach their project groups by talking to them about the powers of physical activity, the barriers that the project participants feel they face to doing more/any physical activity, and help co-create physical activity programmes that the participants actually want to do. ⠀
The girls are in the driving seat (not literally, yet!) and have done some great activities as part of their 20 week activity plan, including rock climbing. We have loved receiving updates of what new activities they have been doing. Learning to scuba dive is just amazing!! Not only are they getting active, but as their confidence has grown, they have been able to try out new opportunities and experiences that they might not have opted to try previously. ⠀
Go on girls!
