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!
Claireโ€™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 canโ€™t thank her enough! I would highly recommend โ€œYour Pelvic Mattersโ€ to anyone interested in teaching clients to improve their pelvic floor health.

Stick a fork in me, I am DONE! Doors are now closed to Your Pelvic Matters, and I am soo incredibly grateful to every single teacher who enrolled ๐Ÿ™
.
I have an amazing mix of instructors worldwide who will be devouring the content, Netflix-binge style ๐Ÿ“บ ๐Ÿฟ and I can't wait to help them:
.
๐Ÿ’ฅ get more of their PFD clients consistent results from their symptoms, ๐Ÿ’ฅ attract more PFD customers into their business, and
๐Ÿ’ฅ move their PFD services from an offline to online capacity
.
I'm going to celebrate now with a huge slice of chocolate cake ๐Ÿฐ and a Belgium beer I reserve for special occasions such as this ๐Ÿบ ๐Ÿฅณ
.
I might have a lie down too ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ›Œ .

One of the most common questions I'm asked about Your Pelvic Matters is: "How long does it take to get through all the content?" โฑ๏ธ
.
My answer: "It depends". It has been known for some instructors to lock themselves away, ensuring they have plentiful supply of snacks obviously, and consume the YPM content (and said snacks) and sit the exam, in just 5-7 daysโ€ฆ ๐Ÿฟ
.
But, to spell things out: there are 5 modules (practical and theoretical webinars) ranging from 60-90 minutes in length, so if time is on your hands right now, it's definitely possible to binge-watch me on screen Netflix-style, in a few days (but just make sure you have those snacks, yeah?) ๐Ÿ“บ
.
You may not get the reference, but if you're a Big Bang Theory fan ๐Ÿ’ฅ one of my favourite episodes is the one where Penny becomes addicted to the online game Age of Conan, and that's pretty much what I visualise these pelvic floor experts are doing, as they go through the Your Pelvic Matters course! ๐ŸŽฎ ๐Ÿคฃ
.
Doors close later today (5pm UK time to be precise), so if you want in, send me a DM, and, if you have a question, message me, or check out my stories for more info - I'm only too happy to help! ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ
.
I look forward to welcoming you onboard the YPM program, and if you're somewhat competitive, I guess I could start a leaderboard of "Who's consumed the content the fastest" - har har! ๐Ÿ†
...

I'm extremely grateful to every PFD geek who has enrolled into my Your Pelvic Matters Teacher Training program this week ๐Ÿ™
.
The opportunity to join is only available for the next couple of days, and once it's gone, you won't be able to enrol again ๐Ÿ˜ญ
.
I've added a NEW bonus into the program just this morning, AND a 12 x monthly payment plan ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
.
The top 3 reasons you need Your Pelvic Matters is because:
.
1๏ธโƒฃ some of your clients are getting results, but not all of them (your clients deserve better, and I want to change that),
2๏ธโƒฃ you're prescribing Pilates/core/pelvic-centred exercises dealing with "what shows up" (and what you need is a system to work from to take out the guess work), and
3๏ธโƒฃ lifestyle factors and daily habits also attribute massively to optimal function of the pelvic floor (and you may be sharing some of these with clients, but missing more important ones)
.
If you want to jump onboard, send me a DM now. Or, if you have questions, send me a DM and I'd be happy to answer them! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
.
...

One of the most common misconceptions I hear about PFD experts not signing up to Your Pelvic Matters is time and money ๐Ÿ’ฐ
.
I'm going to go out on a limb ๐Ÿฆต here and say that you have a lot of the former, and not much of the latter right now, and I get it, I really do ๐Ÿ™
.
I've lost count of the number of DMs I've received this week from YPM trainers who bought my course last year who've messaged me to ask a question, showed me a pic of their feet (it's a thing), or asked if they could reset their password so they can log back in and devour the content ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป
.
Why? Because they have time on their hands right now, life got in their way last year (it happens), and seeing me promote my YPM course has brought back all those reasons as to why they signed up in the first place: the desire to serve more clients with PFD, the full-body way ๐Ÿ’•
.
This is called The Ripple Effect. Cool, huh? How many clients could you potentially work with over the next few months? ๐Ÿค”
.
The going rate for most of my trainers is ยฃ80/hour for PT, so think of your first payment as investing in your future and your ability to work and help more clients with pelvic floor dysfunction ๐Ÿ’ก
.
You have the time, and if you choose to embrace this Covid-19 situation head-on like the passionate-about-pelvic-floor person that you are, and get yourself set up to work with clients virtually like many of my instructors are doing, money is actually very easy to come by. Think of YPM as an investment in your future, which in turn provides you with a fantastic opportunity to help more clients with PFD โœ…

Today, I want to talk about Sarah @strollerfiit who's had amazing results as a Teacher Trainer of mine โญ๏ธ
.
She signed up to my online pelvic floor program because despite having undergone her level 3 pregnancy and postnatal exercise, she felt she needed a deeper understanding of pelvic floor dysfunction and the lifestyle factors that may attribute to it โœ…
.
Here's what she has to say about Your Pelvic Matters:
.
"I now feel genuinely far better prepared to support my clients on their postpartum journey, supporting and educating women with abdominal separation, prolapse and pelvic floor dysfunction. The Your Pelvic Matters whole-body factors approach has certainly benefited my clients and their symptoms." ๐Ÿ™
.
Isn't that amazing?! You can almost smell Sarah's love for the postnatal client through the screen here, can't you? ๐Ÿ’•
.
Two of the lifestyle factors Sarah addresses regularly with her clients to help improve pelvic floor function are:
๐Ÿšถโ€โ™€๏ธwalking (her StrollerStrong classes look amazing!), and
๐Ÿฆถ๐Ÿปbarefoot shoes (she even went live yesterday showcasing the cutest barefoot shoes for babies, so check it out!).
.
Helping clients with their pelvic floor is so much more than just "exercises". You've got to address daily habits too โœ…
.
Exercise is one small part of pelvic floor rehab, and it's great when your clients are in good form for 20 minutes each day doing their exercises, but how's their pelvic floor being loaded the rest of the time is the question for you to ponder todayโ€ฆ ๐Ÿค”

If you'd like to assist more women lead happier, healthier lives post-birth like Sarah, then send me a DM or comment below for more info on how to become a Your Pelvic Matters Teacher Trainer! ๐Ÿ’ก

One of the most common mistakes I see experts make when it comes to pelvic floor rehab is overlooking their clients' lifestyle factors that cause pelvic floor dysfunction ๐Ÿšจ
.
The reasons these are dismissed as important are often due to:
.
1๏ธโƒฃ a lack of knowledge of the full list of the daily habits that attribute to dysfunction,
2๏ธโƒฃ a belief that lifestyle choices are somewhat superfluous (clients are coming to you for "exercise" after all, aren't they?), and
3๏ธโƒฃ there's sometimes a limited amount of time spent health screening and goal setting with the client
.
For the pelvic floor to function well, you have to have eagle eyes ๐Ÿฆ… ๐Ÿ‘€ and opened ears๐Ÿ‘‚๐Ÿป
.
You need to spot the types of shoes and clothes they're wearing. How they sit, and how they move ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ
.
And, you need to enquire about their job, their hobbies, past-activities, how they lift and carry, and how these impact their pelvic floor๐Ÿด
.
What's the most common lifestyle factor you focus on with clients with pelvic floor dysfunction? ๐Ÿช‘
.
Let me know in the comments, because I'd love to open up the conversation with you here about this! โœ…

Asking for a friend... ๐Ÿ˜ฌ How many days in a row is it acceptable to wear the same pair of tracksuit bottoms, when you only share your top half on social...? ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

Since seeing clients solely online, quitting my fitness classes late last year, and now with the lockdown in force, I seem to have the same favourite 3 pairs of joggers on rotation: grey Sweaty Betty pair, navy Sweaty Betty pair, navy LuluLemon pair ๐Ÿ‘–
.
It's like I'm stuck in a cycle that I canโ€™t get out of! I just wanted to check that was normal, and that 5 days is ok, but 6 might be pushing it...? ๐Ÿ˜œ

I'm coming out to say that last week wasn't good. Horrendous in fact for some ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป
.
Not so for me, but I did have several people asking for technical and emotional help last week, and when the announcement came through on Friday that pubs would be closing, that news was difficult for me ๐Ÿบ
.
I didn't post on Instagram at all last week other than to mention my BONUS Coronavirus podcast episode. Everything else got unscheduled because it didn't feel appropriate ๐Ÿ˜ถ
.
Waking up this morning, I feel like I have more clarity going forwards into this new week. I'm relieved and I hope you are too. This situation we've all been thrust into isn't normal, but after doing some reflecting last night, content is coming your way afresh -yay! ๐Ÿ’ก
.
I will be opening the doors to my signature online pelvic floor certification course "Your Pelvic Matters" as planned next week because: a) I know there are people eager to jump onboard, and b) if I quit, so would you and it's just not in my nature (we're all too tenacious and have come too far to just throw in the towel right now, huh?)๐Ÿšช
.
I'm busy tweaking my YPM messaging to reflect the current situation because it would be completely unprofessional and insensitive to not acknowledge what's going on ๐ŸŒ
.
A voice called to me earlier this year to say "Short cart open Claire", so that's what I'll be doing: doors open on Monday 29th March 2020 and close on Friday 2nd April 2020 which is 5 days 5๏ธโƒฃ
.
I'll be hosting 2 x webinars on Monday in celebration of doors open (DM me for link), and, I'm adding a NEW bonus into the platform to help you guys out in this current situation "5 Ways To Serve Your Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Clients Online". Everyone gets this special bonus, regardless of whether they're on the waiting list, they sign up on day 1 of official cart open, or day 5 which is my way of helping out ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

Two NEW podcast episodes have hit on Pelvicpreneur Podcast this week! Have you listened yet? ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
.
1๏ธโƒฃ First episode is a BONUS segment on "Dealing With Coronavirus" in your fitness business, with sensible advice about moving your exercise classes and 1-2-1 sessions online ๐Ÿ’ป
.
If you're really stressing out about using Zoom to stream your classes live (I know a few people have had shed real tears, as a result of virtual technology failing them), in this bonus episode I spell out exactly what I would do if I were in your shoes right now, and I know that Zoom would not have been practical or suitable for me, my clients or my business, so there you go ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป
.
Just know that there are many options for continuing to get your clients moving and treating them online, and I've spelled them all out in this bonus podcast episode, so take a listen and report back if you have any questions โœ…
.
2๏ธโƒฃ And, secondly, your usual weekly Thursday episode has just dropped this morning on which social media platform is best for you and your business ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ
.
I want to keep some normality going in your life right now, so rather than stop this scheduled episode being released (I was due to go to Hungary on holiday on Monday but postponed the trip), it's up there now and ready for you to listen to ๐Ÿ’•

I LOVE doing this stretch with my pelvic floor patients, but - they don't! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
.
Often, the pelvic floor has become tight and weak when clients suffer with pelvic floor dysfunction โœ…
.
This can also be as a result of tight hamstrings, excessive sitting and glute muscles that have atrophied ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป
.
The hamstrings pull the back of the pelvis down and keep it in a posterior tilt/tucked position, which inhibits the length, load and function of the pelvic floor ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
.
This stretch, when done correctly, maintaining a true lumbar curve is an excellent way to gain length in the hamstrings ๐Ÿฆด
.
Note that if you've been traditionally cueing a hamstring stretch in supine, with one leg raised, knee bent, with zero consideration of a horizontally aligned ASIS/PS (neutral pelvis), and your client is already in a posterior tilt, you're kind of just keeping her in that tucked positionโ€ฆ? ๐Ÿค”
.
Hamstring stretches, when done well, maintaining a neutral pelvis and natural lumbar curve are excellent for restoring function in the pelvic floor ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
.
Now, over to you. Do you do this stretch this way with your PFD clients? Comment below and let me know! ๐Ÿค“
...

๐Ÿ“ข NEW podcast episode has just hit on Pelvicpreneur Podcast!

It's #NationalFootWeek here in the UK, so it's only fitting that I record my FitPro and Physio audience a podcast about how tightness in the foot can really affect pelvic floor function๐Ÿฆถ๐Ÿป

Many PFD experts dismiss foot mechanics when treating clients and this saddens me ๐Ÿ˜”
.
Think of how many MORE clients with pelvic floor issues you could be rehabilitating, and you could be making a real difference to their quality of life hereโ€ฆ? ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
.
When you free up the foot, you gain length and strength in the pelvic floor ๐Ÿฆถ๐Ÿป
.
Foot pain is incredibly common place, particularly amonst the female population. It's an accepted way of life for some women ๐Ÿฆต
.
You're probably reading this thinking "I've never had foot pain", but if you've ever had a blister on your foot; been guilty of "breaking a new pair of shoes in"; or just couldn't wait to take your shoes off at the end of a night out - thatโ€™s foot pain, ok? ๐Ÿฉน
.
Foot pain isn't the new incontinence: incontinence is the new foot pain, because sneeze wee is all too common ๐Ÿšฝ
.
In appointment one with ALL of my PFD clients, there are 3 vital foot-related points I focus on:
.
1๏ธโƒฃ increasing dorsi flexion
2๏ธโƒฃ improving forefoot immobility, and
3๏ธโƒฃ innervating the intrinsic foot muscles
.
I'm covering the foot/pelvic floor connection in this week's podcast episode, AND this week's FitPro/Physio newsletter โœ…

If you'd like a copy of this info, send me a DM and I'll be sure to add you to my mailing list ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป

It's #NationalFeetWeek in the UK and I love me some foot talk ๐Ÿฆถ๐Ÿป
.
I have a 5+ year history of foot pain myself (plantar fasciitis survivor! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ), and you'll hear me often talk about the connection between dysfunction in the foot and dysfunction in pelvic floor ๐Ÿ’•
.
Getting myself out of foot pain via a relatively non-traditional approach all those years ago, really was the catalyst for me helping women with PFD using a "foot first" approach today โœ…
.
And, I find it absolutely fascinating to see my full-body method work with PFD clients time and time again ๐Ÿ’ก
.
When I was in the thick of plantar fasciitis hell circa 2007, here's what DIDN'T work for me:
.
โŽ seeing a Physio (who was a Podiatrist in a former life)
๐Ÿ’†โ€โ™€๏ธ getting regular sports massage (I've never been in so much pain during manual therapy ever)
๐Ÿ‘Ÿ being advised to never take my shoes off (even indoors, so naturally my feet atrophied nicely there)
๐Ÿฅถ rolling a frozen water bottle under the sole of my foot (ice cream headache anyone?!)
๐Ÿฆตperforming endless calf raises to strengthen my calves (my calves needed length, not strength)
๐Ÿฅฟ wearing custom-made orthotics for 5+ years (I eventually weaned myself off those and into barefoot shoes, but the word here is "transition", people)
.
I'm not posting this list to cause disrespect or criticism, I'm simply highlighting that the oh-so-common-place approach did NOT work for me, and we could argue that Kegels donโ€™t work for every client with PFD either ๐Ÿค”

What's YOUR experience of foot pain and foot mechanics? Do you have a story to tell? Do you focus on the foot with your own clients with pelvic floor issues? Comment below and let me know! ๐Ÿ“ฒ

Happy International Women's Day 2020! Let's celebrate together, shall we? ๐ŸŽ‰
.
This year's IWD2020 theme is quite distinctive "EachForEqual" recognising all of the actions we can take as individuals to challenge stereotypes, fight prejudice and celebrate women's achievements ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
.
Working in pelvic floor health means I have plenty of females around me. The vast majority of my clients are women, and without sounding weird, I'm kind of pretty proud to be a woman ๐Ÿ‘ฉ
.
I see International Women's Day as a special moment in time to give thanks to all of my female followers and fans, and to reach out to anyone reading this who's a woman in business who needs a little bit of uplifting today to keep going ๐Ÿš€
.
Being a woman in business can be tough at times. We tend to undervalue ourselves, even though the very people we're often trying to attract into our services are women themselves. Ever thought of how ridiculous that isโ€ฆ?! ๐Ÿ˜‰
.
I'm a big fan of women supporting other women in business, and I honestly am doing everything I can to ensure you're charging your worth, you're working with the clients you were put on this earth to serve, you're changing women's lives with the work you do, and above all - you're happy ๐Ÿ™

If you're on my mailing list, I hope you enjoyed reading this morning's newsletter and that it will encourage you to post something up on IG yourself ๐Ÿ’•

Woo hoo! My NEW Pelvicpreneur Podcast is now live and available for you to listen to! ๐ŸŽง
.
I could not be more excited for today, because boy oh boy, have I had to jump through a few technical hoops to get this out there to the world ๐ŸŒŽ
.
I often binge listen to several podcast episodes whilst out on walks etc, so you'll be pleased to know that I've loaded up not 1, not 2, but 4 episodes for you to consume straight away! The first episode is an introduction piece aptly titled: "Why I quit teaching fitness classes after 14+ years" ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
.
I'm not OCD, but I'd just like to mention that #1 is a good place to start, follwed by #2, then #3 and honestly, it doesn't matter if you're a new or an old follower, I guarantee there will be snippets in that intro podcast that you probably don't know about me, as I bear my soul 1๏ธโƒฃ
.
I'm not going to get too mushy, but I think I've found my calling here people, because I am LOVING my change in direction, and providing marketing, mindset and movement tips online to FitPros, Pilates/Yoga Teachers, Women's Health Physios, and Alignment Nerds is really rather enjoyable ๐Ÿ’•
.
Want to take a listen? Just search your favourite podcast app for "Pelvicpreneur Podcast" (it's "e" before the "u", like "The EU" if that helps you remember), or click the link in the bio, scroll down to "#1 - Introduction" episode and you're good to go! ๐Ÿ”
.
I'd love to hear your thoughts, so pop your ear buds in and report back even if it's just to let me know how much you enjoyed the intro/outro music, because man did I have fun choosing that ๐ŸŽต

Till next time! ๐ŸŽ™

As a PFD specialist, please choose your words wisely when promoting what it is you do โœ…
.
I don't think it's advisable to claim that you can "fix" someone's prolapse, or "cure" someone's stress incontinence etc, and there are many ways to get your point across about the good work pelvic floor exercise and physical therapy provides, without the messaging being misconstrued ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
.
Here's a list of some of the phrases I've used over the years:
.
๐Ÿ’ฅlessen or decrease the symptoms of (stress / urge incontinence etc)
๐Ÿ’ฅreduce how bothersome the symptoms of (prolapse) are
๐Ÿ’ฅreduce the grade of prolapse from 3 to 2
๐Ÿ’ฅimprove the function of your pelvic floor
๐Ÿ’ฅrehabilitate the pelvic floor (as opposed to "fix" or "cure")
.
Do you have other different phrase to add? Could "eradicate" be used for any of those, do you thinkโ€ฆ? ๐Ÿค”
.
Pop a comment below, because sharing is always helpful isn't it, and Instagram has a tremendous community of wonderful PFD experts out there ๐Ÿ’•

Where are my fellow introverts at today? ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
.
I love being an introvert, and as it pertains to running a business here's an interesting thing: introverts tend to attract other introverts into their tribe, and I have to say, I love all of mine ๐Ÿ’•
.
Extroverts for me are sometimes a little too loud, overly "talky", and did I say loud? LOL! ๐Ÿ˜‚
.
Introverts are often termed "good listeners" (story of my life). Hint: we're "good listeners" because oftentimes the person saying we're "good listeners" is an extrovert and we, the "good listener" can't get a blooming word in ๐Ÿ™„
.
Being an introvert certainly has its advantages, but some of the things that hold me back at times are:
.
๐Ÿ›‹ Needing my own space and downtime on a regular basis
๐Ÿ˜ฑ Walking into a room for a networking meeting, not recognising anyone, and feeling absolutely paralysed
๐Ÿ˜‘ Feeling "over-peopled" after being in said room for 2+ hours
๐Ÿบ Not having my voice heard when in social situations when there are more than 4 people at a table
๐Ÿฟ Being easily distracted - oh look, squirrel!
๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป Feeling somewhat guilty for taking a day off
๐Ÿ•ฐ Being really sensitive to noise and not able to concentrate because of it
๐Ÿง  Having a running inner monologue which means I talk to myself all the time (and sometimes I get a bit carried away, and my partner asks me WHO I'm actually talking to!)
๐Ÿ‘ฎโ€โ™€๏ธ Observing acute details about people that could, when questioned, later be relied on in court
๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป Not loving co-working spaces because I just want to get work done, not talk
๐Ÿฅบ Being mistaken for being shy or lacking confidence
.
Resonate with any of those? What's something that holds you back as an introvert? ๐Ÿค”

Don't be shy, let me know in the comments! โฌ‡๏ธ
