FIT Girls Club (Gem Power)

FIT Girls Club (Gem Power)

Overview

A girls-led project (11-14 years) in the US to engage their peers in physical activity using a design thinking process to examine barriers and motivators to getting girls physically active. Part of a two-site pilot, called “Power Up for 30 Middle School Girls Physical Activity Project”. In a pre-survey, only 40% of girls said physical activity was fun, compared to 100% at the end. 80% of girls said, “I get embarrassed doing physical activity in front of others” before the programme. At the end, no participant agreed with this phrase.
