Are You a Personal Trainer or Pilates Instructor Who Works With Clients Suffering From Pelvic Floor Dysfunction?
That is a lot of people! Think about the class you are teaching that has 10 women in it — 3 of those likely have a pelvic floor issue, and its probably more!
Pelvic Floor knowledge is in demand. More clients are Googling on their own. Questioning why they are having problems and trying to find solutions on their own.
I started my career in the fitness environment — working for many years as a personal trainer.
While working with my clients, I yearned to know more about how I could apply therapeutic exercise to all the injuries I was seeing. Physiotherapy seemed like the next logical step and I graduated from the University of British Columbia’s physiotherapy program in 2003.
Shortly thereafter I became certified through Stott as I really resonated with how Pilates worked so deeply at finding ones optimal movement patterns while identifying muscle imbalances. I quickly integrated those principles into the rehabilitative exercises I gave to my clients.
I find it so important that my clients adopt a proactive approach in order to succeed with their healing. I always knew I wanted to work for myself and do my own thing. I wanted to have longer appointment times with my clients and give them quality service. I began to notice than many of my clients were themselves, personal trainers, yoga and Pilates teachers and Crossfit Instructors!
During our sessions, they would often ask questions, wanting to delve deeper into understanding how our core muscles worked, what was happening when they weren’t working and how to help their clients more. This is what made me begin to think that sharing the information I have is a direction I want to pursue!
