This Girl Can in the City of Melton


Each year Melton City Council delivers a program of activities for women to empower them to get active and learn to enjoy physical activity. 

This Girl Can is an empowering campaign that celebrates and supports Victorian women to embrace physical activity in a way that suits you. Whether it’s a little or a lot, what matters is getting some movement into your day. It doesn’t matter if you’re a newbie or a regular, all that matters is you’re giving it a go. 

While many of us know that exercising is important for our physical and mental health, that doesn’t change the fact that half of us aren’t getting enough exercise each week. Why? Victorian women have told us that a big part of not trying new activities or getting involved in sport is a fear of being judged, or not being fit enough to start. Not to mention, twice as many women than men put off getting active because they’re worried about what other people think – how unfair is that?

Visit the This Girl Can website for inspiring stories from ambassadors, exercise clips and tips (including info on running tips and drills), videos, information and events.
