Take the Pelvic Floor Challenge!

Pelvic health is important for everyone, regardless of age, race, gender, or fitness level. 

The pelvic floor muscles are a wonderful, hard-working part of the body that deserve a special kind of attention they often miss out on! Maintenance of a strong pelvic floor is essential for good pelvic health – not only can it be beneficial for the over one million Kiwis who experience continence issues, but it can also help to prevent issues from happening in the future – so why don't we show it more love?

We know how hard it can be to start new habits, and this is particularly true regarding pelvic floor muscles – many people don’t know what and where they are, and about the important role they play in our bladder, bowel, and overall pelvic function! That’s why this World Continence Week, we are encouraging you to Take the Pelvic Floor Challenge by doing your pelvic floor exercises daily from 17 to 23 June – find out more about the Pelvic Floor Challenge by following the link above.
