Let’s hear it for the girls…


When it comes to girl power, there seems to be a growing movement of women supporting women.

Auckland-based health and wellbeing bloggers, Millie Elder-Holmes, Makaia Carr and Libby Matthews have joined forces to travel around New Zealand sharing and inspiring, in a series of seminars under the banner Girl on a Journey.

Fitness Journal attended the recent Hamilton Girl on a Journey event, held at The Narrows Landing.

The venue was packed with hundreds of women and one man keen to hear Millie, Makaia and Libby.

Drawing on their own vastly different life experiences these women are wonderfully candid, inspiring, reassuring and informative.

This combination is a formidable one and the audience gathered around afterwards, discussing the aspects which struck a personal chord with them.

Focused around clean eating, positive self belief and body image, no matter what your age or size, it is a powerful message the girls are spreading.

Girl on a Journey is a nationwide seminar series, with the goal of empowering women to take control of their health, their lives and to promote woman-to woman-support.  Around New Zealand pocket groups of women are reaching out to support and encourage each other.

This embraces all that Fitness Journal is about and we encourage readers to join in, start their own group  and write and tell us about it.

In the meantime, if you have the opportunity to attend a Girl on a Journey event – grab it, with both hands.
