The Pelvicore program is one-of-a-kind and truly exceptional. It was designed by some of the brightest minds in the fitness world and I have nothing but respect for them. Not only can their program help improve pelvic floor dysfunction, it can help us avoid having dysfunction in the first place (for those of you lucky enough to be not currently affected). It’s a program that works your entire core, from diaphragm to pelvic floor, all layers of abdominal, and your back as well. This format would be best as a 30-minute class 2-3 times per week.
My goal has always been to help you live the healthiest life you can, and to keep your body feeling its best. My schedule is designed to be balanced, functional, and of course FUN, and to incorporate all realms of fitness: not just cardio, but muscular strength and endurance, balance and flexibility, and nutrition as well. I’d like to add two new formats to my schedule to make sure that you are getting truly and fully fit. They’re the last pieces we need to complete our “fitness puzzle.”
Did you know that 1 in 3 women has some level of pelvic floor dysfunction (pain – especially during intercourse, incontinence in varying degrees, organ prolapse)? I knew it was common, and I’ve been there myself, but I didn’t realize how prevalent it truly is. Most “solutions” are simply band-aids, they don’t address the root cause, and there ARE things that can be done to help! Here’s a 4-minute video explaining.
You’ve probably heard about foam rolling. Maybe you’ve even tried it! Foam rolling is self-myofascial release, (a fancy way of saying self massage), and it’s terrific for our bodies. There’s many types of foam rollers, but most often they’re about 6 inches in diameter and anywhere from 18-36″ long, of varying degrees of firmness. Unfortunately, it’s often not done correctly, which can lead to injuries (the least of which is bruising), or it’s simply not done often enough to be effective. I’ve been wanting to incorporate SMR for a while but felt I needed both more of the science behind it, and training on the proper techniques so as not to injure myself or others. I spoke with some of the best in the field and now feel ready to present to you. I truly believe that this is the final piece of my schedule puzzle, as rest and recovery are just as important as hard work and sweat. This can be a 30-minute class, held quarterly or monthly for you to then continue at home more frequently, or 2-3 times per week every week for those of us needing the consistency and set schedule as well as assistance.
