Dr Jenny Hendley created Women Exercise for Life as a follow up to the findings of her PhD study at the university.
The website’s aim, as outlined on the homepage, is to “enable women, as well as health and fitness professionals, to access reliable information, current research and policy documents concerning women and exercise.”
Jenny said: “The idea for the website originated from the findings of my PhD study about women’s decisions to exercise in pregnancy. This highlighted how women often receive inconsistent and inaccurate information from both fitness and health professionals and friends and family.
“As the concept of the website evolved it became apparent that many of the issues raised for women were wider than just pregnancy.”
