Hi, I’m Claire!

I teach fitness professionals and physios a non-Kegel, my full-body approach to pelvic floor dysfunction so you can get your clients consistent relief from their symptoms, and offer them effective, long-term solutions to their problems.

Unlike other PFD exercise methods where the focal point is often the pelvis, I focus on a “from the ground up”, everything is connected, step-by-step approach which addresses:

Lifestyle factors that attribute to dys-function
Muscular imbalances that improve pelvic floor function

WHY WORK WITH ME?

N

I can help you get your PFD clients reliable results, and help you attract MORE of your ideal customers into your business first time round.

N
I’m all about niche marketing and finding your calling, hence the name: Pelvicpreneur. If you want to stand out as an expert, being a Jack (or Jill) of All Trades just isn’t where it’s at anymore.
N
Are you feeling burnt out from seeing clients in person, and have only ever dreamed of creating your own online course? I can help you map out and produce your first program, increase your social media following and take your niche online too!
Claire’s easy-to-follow, step-by-step approach for clients makes our teaching transition to this important client group seamless. The support from Claire through my teaching journey has been incredible and I can’t thank her enough! I would highly recommend “Your Pelvic Matters” to anyone interested in teaching clients to improve their pelvic floor health.

Current feels: turning the spare room into an office space for me 👩‍💻
.
This room is our guest bedroom, and well, my partner and I are introverts with few friends - so, we thought we'd put the space to better use! 😂
.
So far we've removed and dismantled the double bed and gifted it to a friend's 16-year old daughter 🛌
.
My partner actually made the original bed that was in this room with his own little carpenter's hands, so naturally I felt really bad… 😭
.
But, it turns out the bed was an absolute beast to take apart (like, 583 screws had to be removed before anything budged, so it was definitely initially built to last 😂)
.
And, I must admit that there was just a teeny bit of cursing as we reinacted that scene from Friends with Ross and the sofa going down the stairs - "Pivot! Pivot! Pivooot!" 🛋
.
The ceiling has been painted a fresh brilliant white (please don't judge us for not removing the horrid splat effect textured ceiling, but the only people who will ever see it are: 1) us, and 2) the small circle of friends who ever come to stay - har har!)
.
Where ARE our friends staying if this is now an office? 🤔
.
Well, my partner is going to build a foldaway bed that hides into the wall. Nifty, huh? 🛏
.
If you've missed the DIY progress so far, and want to to see it, check out the "Office Space" highlight underneath my bio ⬆️
.
DIY work will hopefully continue tomorrow with painting the walls (I'm going for a light pink colour), so be sure to keep a watchful eye on my IG Stories for more antics 🔨 🎨

Over on my IG Stories this week, I've been running an experiment on work/life balance 💕
.
It's been interesting and challenging, but one technique I wanted to share with you today that really helps me get "work" done, AND "rest" done when needed is this:
.
The Pomodoro Technique 🍅
.
Here's how it works:
.
🖊 Write a list of tasks you want to get done
⏱ Set a timer for 25 minutes (this is the "work" phase)
👩‍💻 Get to work on that task. No distractions. Keep going. Stay absolutely focused, ok?
🛌 When the time goes off take a break
⏰ Set a timer for 5 minutes (that's your "break" phase)
✅ Step away from your "work" during your "break" - no exceptions
.
I find it super useful for productivity but… what I've been doing during my "break" times this week is NOT automatically scrolling IG or Facebook, or something mundane... 🙄
.
I've created a "Things I Enjoy Doing" list, and in my "break" times, I've picked something off that list to fill my 5 minute "break" with (check out the "Life Balance" in my Highlights under my profile for ideas!)
.
Can you see how I've mixed business with pleasure there? Work and life balance, you see? 🙌🏻
.
(Oh, one more tip: I actually use my phone as my timer, and put my phone on the other side of the room, so when the alarm goes off, I have to get up, move and switch it off, so I kind of get some movement in there too!)
.
Have you used the Pomodoro Technique yourself? Want to give it a go? Let me know in the comments below! ⬇️

Ever told a pelvic floor dysfunction client to "Wait X months" for their symptoms to improve? 🤔
.
Has another professional told your client to avoid an exercise or movement, and it's put you in a really awkward situation? 😳
.
Have you set clients exercises to do for homework but later find they've made little to no progress? 🤯
.
Well, in this week's episode, I answer ALL of these questions, and give you insights into:
.
1️⃣ how I empower my clients to move more (and ultimately move better)
2️⃣ why exercises aren't the be all and end all when it comes to solving pelvic floor dysfunction, and
3️⃣ tips on how to deal with conflicting advice when you're in front of a client

I'm going to try an experiment this week on work/life balance (cue the groans and eye rolls) ⚖️
.
Something someone posted in a Facebook group recently really resonated with me. It was this:
.
"I plan the rest of my life 'around' my rest time, it is my number one priority." and boy did that hit me like a bolt of lightning ⚡️
.
Over on my Instagram Stories, I'm going to share my "rest" periods and my "work" periods with you over the next 7 days 🛌 👩‍💻
.
Sound fun? 🤸‍♀️
.
Do you struggle with work/life balance? Do you feel like you're in "work work work" mode ALL the time? Why do you find "resting" so hard? 🤯

I’m attending this webinar. You should too!
.

Repost from @iamchrissyking using @RepostRegramApp - Yesterday, I let y’all know that I was going to be hosting a new webinar for fitness and wellness professionals about how to better show up as it pertains to the intersection of racism and wellness.

If you have previously taken my course, Diversity and Inclusion 101, this class will go far beyond that. We are doing a deep dive to specifically discuss the following:

1) Examining white supremacy, racism, and bias in your own life and the ways in which you are being complicit

2) How to actively hold yourself and the fitness and wellness industry accountable and how to make it a space that demands justice for ALL bodies

3) How to leverage our privilege to create actual change within the fitness industry

4) Resources to educate yourself on the intersection of racism and wellness

5) How to show up better and embody anti-racism practices year round, not just when it’s prominent in the news and media

Due to the overwhelming response, I have made the live webinar available for 3 separate days. The schedule is as follows:

Monday, June 8th, 3-5pm EST [CLOSED]
Tuesday, June 9th, 3-5pm EST [CLOSED]
Wednesday, June 10th, 3-5 pm EST [CLOSED]

*UPDATE* — additional sessions have been added

Monday, June 15th, 3-5pm EST
Tuesday, June 16th 3-5pm EST
Wednesday, June 17th, 3-5 pm EST

If you can’t make it live, a replay of the webinar will be sent out following the live event.

This class will be uncomfortable. We are going to be discussing the hard things. Confronting racism is never easy. I’m also going to be sending you materials to read and prepare for the webinar and homework to do after the webinar. This is for wellness professionals who are invested in confronting racism.

Space is limited. Sign up and share with a friend.

Links are live in my bio NOW.

I can’t wait to see you on the webinar.

Have you ever read a book that literally changed your life? 🙋🏼‍♀️
.
Felt compelled to share the author's work with other people in your life so they too can benefit? 😬
.
Well, in this week's Pelvicpreneur podcast, I'm showcasing not one, but three books that have changed my life for the better 📖
.
Knowledge is power, and knowledge is even more powerful when you take action on it, and the three books you'll hear me talk about have action points in spades ⛏

Throwback to me on holiday in Croatia last year, and guess what?! We're considering booking flights to go back in September ✈️
.
Good idea, or not? The Croatian government is allowing travel to foreign nationals who have booked/pre-arranged accommodation 🏨
.
No issues there for us, because the hosts of 3 of the places we visit regularly would welcome us with open arms (or maybe with a social distancing hug!?) 🤗
.
We may have to self-isolate for 14 days on returning to the UK, but I'm thinking 14 days sounds like a nice number, in comparison to the 372,522 days we've been in lockdown now - har har! 😂
.
Where would YOU go first, given the chance? Would you take the risk of booking flights right now, or not...? 🤷‍♀️

Do you feel frustrated that some PFD clients do their homework and others don't? 🤯
.
Ever sent a pelvic floor client on their way with a series of exercises only to find out they'd hardly done any of them the next time they see you? 🙄
.
Are you losing confidence in your abilities to deal with clients with incontinence, prolapse or pudendal neuralgia because you're just not getting them results? 🥺
.
In this week's Pelvicpreneur Podcast, Claire walks you through why you may be overcomplicating matters in your approach to pelvic floor dysfunction clients right now…
.
And, what you need to do to attract ideal customers into your business, so you never have to worry about the non-compliant ones ever again! 🙌🏻

Got a pelvis model like this one, and work with clients with pelvic floor dysfunction? 🙋🏼‍♀️
.
Here are some ideas to put that pelvic model to use in your marketing:
.
🤳 Take 10 smiley photos holding your pelvis in various poses
😬 Change your profile picture to one these smiley photos holding your pelvis
👩‍💻 Write several amazing posts for social media, and periodically use one of those 10 photos of you holding said pelvis alongside the captions
🎥 Film a series of videos highlighting topics like the glutes' role in pelvic floor function, pelvic neutral in seated, the muscle attachments of the pelvic floor (utilising said pelvis)
💻 Upload these videos to IGTV, Facebook, YouTube, your blog etc
📹Go LIVE on Instagram with your pelvis
🗳 Come up with 2 names for your pelvis and ask your followers to vote for their favourite
📦 Use your pelvis for storage
🚶‍♀️ Take your pelvis on walks
👸 Wear your pelvis as a crown
.
Pictures sell, and really help you connect with your audience 📷 Photos with people in them perform 67% better than without 😉
.
Videos are basically pictures on speed 😬
.
Get the idea it? 👍🏻
.
Alrighty. Comment below to let me know what you're going to do with your pelvis today 💕

Ever wondered if you should have two Facebook Pages? 🤷‍♀️
.
Pondered over the idea of setting up a second Instagram account now that you've changed direction? ✈️
.
Got a new qualification, and unsure whether these new services require a separate website? 👩‍💻
.
In this week's Pelvicpreneur Podcast, I'm talking about consolidating your services, branding, what to call yourself when and if you diversify or niche down 🙌🏻

Deal with clients with pelvic floor dysfunction? Find it frustrating when clients DON'T do their homework…? 🤯
.
What causes clients to NOT do the exercises you set them, do you think? 🤔
.
Think about a client you worked with that didn't adhere, didn't take your advice, didn't do the work. Kind of sucks, huh? 👎🏻
.
How did that make you feel…? Let me know in the comments because I'd love to be able to help you here! 💕
.
...

Can we talk about PROLAPSE for a moment? I've been chatting to Pilates instructors over coffee on Zoom this week and it appears with prolapse, you fall into 2 camps:
.
You love yourself a prolapse like me 🙋🏼‍♀️ or
You kind of feel a little scared of clients with this condition 😟
.
If I created a simple pdf, video or webinar about my experiences with clients with prolapse would you be interested? 👩‍💻
.
I'd cover: the do's and don’ts of prolapse, exercises to avoid, what lifestyle factors to include, what's worked, what hasn't, why prolapse is so individual - that sort of thing…? 🤷‍♀️
.
Comment YES or NO below if you'd be interested! ⬇️
.
...

How supportive is your partner of you and your business? Working for yourself and running your own business is not without its stresses 🤯
.
With a lot of us working from home together, I can only imagine some of the struggles happening right now and that's why yesterday's newsletter on this topic was a timely reminder 💕
.
It's super frustrating when you want to go on your path, and you feel like your partner is disinterested 🙄
.
However, increasing your pool of strong, supportive females who "get you" is one tip I shared 🙋🏼‍♀️
.
Any of these sound familiar…?
.
"Until I bring in more money from my business I don’t feel he’ll ever really respect what I do."
.
"I think it’s really hard when there is inequality financially in a relationship and one person is earning way more than the other."
.
"I can't switch off and my partner hates it!"
.
"Thanks Claire, I tried to talk this process and idea though with my husband, and it was a total disaster. His eyes glazed over!"
.
So, do know that you're NOT alone here. Reach out to me. Get it off your chest! It's not wise to keep all of that emotion in all the time, ok? 🧠
.
So, how supportive is your partner of you and your business? Comment below and let me know! ⬇️
