What is Studio You?

Physical Education.

For many adult women today, these two words evoke memories of 'forgotten' kit, running laps in the rain and an impending sense of dread.

But we’re on a mission to change this negative PE narrative – and show the next generation of girls that being active isn’t something to fear; it’s a great way to connect, de-stress and find space to simply be.

Through Studio You, we’re working with girls and teachers to move PE in a new direction, so everyone can enjoy getting active.

We’re empowering teachers to break the traditional PE mould, so they can inspire even the most uninterested girls to take part.

And we want more people to join us in changing the way young women everywhere see PE.

Bold. Accessible. Inclusive.

Studio You is our answer to getting more girls moving, bringing fun to physical activity – and helping every girl, regardless of background and ability, to enjoy PE.

The context

Research shows that when it comes to PE, young girls express much lower levels of enjoyment than boys.

But, getting teens to engage in subjects they struggle with or don’t feel motivated by can often be a difficult job.

That’s why we’ve worked alongside education specialists Hopscotch Consulting to created Studio You: a new way of inspiring girls to get active that also delivers on the core curriculum.

Taking This Girl Can’s ambitions into schools, Studio You is a product of countless conversations with teenage girls and PE teachers across the country around the stereotypes, status quos and real, tangible barriers that make PE less appealing to young women.

Studio You is designed to make exercise more inclusive, accessible, and more open. It’s a tool PE teachers can use to get their students moving in ways that work for them. Time and time again.

From yoga to dance, and boxing to combat, with Studio You teachers can deliver fun and engaging lessons that challenge the traditional PE mould – and inspire even the least active girls to get up and take part away from the pressure of competition.

And it’s super easy to get started. If you're a teacher, just head to the website to discover a suite of resources that will support you in integrating Studio You into your curriculum, with planning tools that help them focus on students’ progression and assess the impact of lessons on their learning, behaviour and knowledge.
