Hi! I’m Carly, and WOW has this thing grown since it started I’m 2013! Over the years, I’ve been lucky enough to collaborate with fantastic brands, produce and host fitness events, feature in national and international press articles and speak on panels on the subjects of confidence, body image and female empowerment. Oh yeah and I single-handedly organised the 2000-strong Women’s March in Bristol in three (frantic!) days back in January 2017, because… Feminism.
