To celebrate International Women’s Day we are highlighting some of the amazing work women have done to help other women become more active and enhance their wellbeing.
In connection to this, we will be interviewing five women entrepreneurs and innovators who harness technology to get people more active.
This empowering series will be released daily between 8-12 March which will provide insight into their stories, success and top tips.
We have selected five organisations who aim to empower, connect, encourage and educate women to be the best they can be through improving their mental and physical wellbeing.
WILD.AI is a training app designed specifically for women that turns their menstrual cycle into an unfair advantage.
The app allows users to track their performance and feelings and learn about their body’s biology to enhance their training.
What we like about them WILD provides knowledge, support and empowerment which gives users a new outlook on training.
This Mum Runs
This Mum Runs is the largest running community for mums.
Their aim is to empower mums to become happier and healthier. Runs are not focused on distance or pace and instead on minutes moving and the mental benefits provided.
