February is weightlifting month with AoC Sport and This Girl Can

In partnership with Sport England’s This Girl Can campaign, AoC Sport has this month teamed up with British Weight Lifting and Archon Combine to get more females picking up dumbbells, barbells, kettlebells – or even a can of beans – no matter how heavy.

Each month, AoC Sport will be promoting a different sport or physical activity as part of our work with This Girl Can, and we’re kicking things off by giving weightlifting a try.

AoC Sport staff will also be joining in the fun, so keep an eye on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages to see us in action – and we would love to see your pictures and videos too, whether you’ve been lifting weights for years or it’s your first attempt.

You can even add a This Girl Can caption to your pictures, by visiting app.thisgirlcan.co.uk through your smartphone, or download This Girl Can/British Weight Lifting posters from the British Weight Lifting website.

Also keep checking the AoC Sport website and social media channels to see what we’re giving a go in March.
