The Bridge is a charity run women’s only gym in Southwark and shockingly the only exclusively women’s only gym within Zone 2. I was fortunate enough to photograph the women who use and run this gym and listen to their stories. Women’s sport and fitness has long been neglected in society with 75% of women wanting to exercise but avoiding it because they fear they will be judged in 3 ways: fear of judgement about appearance, ability, or for spending time on yourself rather than with family. - [Sport England, this girl can].

Although there are countless statistics like this, I wanted to focus this project on individual women and their personal experiences with movement. This is an ongoing project that will be published alongside interviews and research in the near future.
