Education for fitness professionals

Did you know that almost every exercise your client does affects their pelvic floor?
And that some exercises can actually harm these muscles, leading to bladder or bowel control problems that can significantly impact their lives? Harmful exercises may not only cause problems to start but can worsen existing problems.

Bladder or bowel weakness (incontinence) is a common problem, affecting nearly 1.1 million New Zealanders. Women experience these problems more than men, with one in every three women who have ever had a baby reporting some degree of urinary incontinence.

We have designed a programme to educate and empower fitness professionals on this very important issue.

The aims of the workshop:
  • To understand basic anatomy and function of the pelvic floor and core.
  • To be aware of the types of dysfunction of the pelvic floor and core.
  • To learn how to screen clients for pelvic floor dysfunction.
  • To know how to apply Pelvic Floor Safety when developing an exercise programme
