I hope that got your attention! Thursdays with Trina is all about healthy lady parts. If you have been part of the Fit4Females family, we don’t just run award winning Boot Camp and Stroller Fitness Programs, we address fitness and healthy bodies from the inside out. Pelvic floor dysfunction, peeing your pants and restoring your core is a hot topic at F4F. Whether you delivered a baby by c-section or vaginally or never had a baby at all, you can still be affected. Fit4Females specializes in coaching women about the importance of pelvic floor health. You would not start running after knee surgery, you would start easy and work your way up. Same applies for your pelvic floor.
I wrote two Blogs: It’s Not Ok to Pee Your Pants and Why do I still have a Mummy Tummy. We need to start by educating ourselves because unfortunately there are many fitness and health professionals out there that are not educated or trained in Pelvic Floor Health or Diastasis Recti (aka abdominal separation). Fit4Females can help!
It’s all about YOU!
Join us for another Mummy Tummy Tune Up Workshop next date TBD. I am a Fitness and Post Natal Expert and I will be joined by expert Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist Silvana Yee. We will be talking about private “lady issues”, pelvic floor dysfunction, signs and symptoms, what to avoid, how to help, etc. Our last workshop sold out quickly. We will be addressing the important exercises you must do daily to strengthen your core and pelvic floor.
5 Starter Tips:
- Practice your breathing. It’s sounds simple but it’s actually very difficult for so many people because we are major stress breathers. I coach my clients to practice breathing from their diaphragm and take the stress out of their ribs and chest. We do simple exercises in class that are very powerful. You can practice at home, fill your ribs like you are opening an umbrella and release.
- Check out Kim Vopni’s Core Breath video. Watch it, do it, repeat it. Bonus: when you breathe properly you burn more calories
- Read our Signs and Symptoms of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Article here
- Get a core assessment by a Professional. Fit4Females offers assessments and we know exactly who to refer to if the issues are beyond our expertise
- Get assessed by a Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist. They examine clients from the inside out and can tell you whether or not you are properly activating your pelvic floor muscles.
