for Personal Trainers & Pilates Teachers
Learn to bridge the gap between therapeutic exercise in a clinical setting and therapeutic exercise in an exercise setting
1 in 3 women will experience pelvic floor dysfunction during their lifetimes.
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.
Why not become one of the solutions?
Hi, I’m Cathy.
Here’s a little bit of information about my story:
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!
Are you a personal trainer who:
- Feels frustrated when information about the core exercises is constantly changing.
- Is never really sure what’s right and what’s wrong when providing pelvic floor advice.
- Wishes you could answer your clients questions with confidence.
- Wants to know that your advice is in-line with the advice your clients are receiving in a clinical setting.
Do you wish you could:
- Identify optimal and sub-optimal core strategies for each individual client.
- Help your client access their pelvic floor muscles.
- Integrate their entire abdominal core into their exercise programs.
- Speak the pelvic floor language so your clients know you understand.
The last thing you want to do is unintentionally harm your clients instead of helping them when they have ‘core’ issues!
