Hi, I’m Claire and I’m a Pelvicpreneur!

I’m passionate about helping pelvic floor health professionals like you attract the right clients, get them consistent results, all while being able to market yourself effectively as a go-to expert in your niche, finally charge your worth and make the money you deserve.

I know what it’s like being in the trenches and I’m here to make sure you don’t stretch yourself thin while trying to figure out what works and what doesn’t with clients with pelvic floor dysfunction. I’ve done all of that work for you through years of trialling and testing a variety of methods, and as a result, I’ve created a powerful system that finally delivers consistent results in treating clients with pelvic floor issues.

So how did I get here?

One of the questions I get asked a lot is, “Where in New Zealand are you from?” My answer to that is, “The Australian part.” Tasmania, to be exact.

After living the big city life and working in Melbourne in my early twenties, I got to thinking – what’s next? I had a real travel bug, so I put my hard-earned money towards travelling. I’ve travelled the majority of Central and Eastern Europe, spending a lot of time in Croatia and even living in Slovakia for two years.

If there’s one thing that travelling teaches you, it’s how to push yourself out of your comfort zone. And without a doubt, it is paramount in health as well.

Professionally, I’ve worked as a gym and aerobics instructor, personal trainer and pilates instructor. Even though I was busy doing a variety of things, it wasn’t until I studied biomechanics and worked as a Restorative Exercise Specialist teaching pre and postnatal classes to a niche client group, that I realised one thing – everything is connected.

I focus on a full-body approach to PFD where everything from foot to the neck is connected. I take everything I have learned, tried, and tested over the years and give you a realistic and workable step-by-step system, where you never have to be unsure about what exercise to do with what client when ever again.

I believe in giving you the tools to a comprehensive strategy that encompasses everything from marketing yourself in the right way to attract the right clients in your niche all while being able to charge your worth and earn the money you deserve.

I’m excited to have you join me – you’ll be amazed by what you are able to attract after you start believing in what you deserve. Are you ready?

Did a spot of video editing recently for a FitPro postnatal exercise certification I want to put back up on my website, and I'm super excited for you to feast your eyes on it shortly! 💻

I've worked with 2,000+ pregnant and postnatal clients, in a 1:1, group exercise, and online class capacity, and I've always enjoyed working with this population 🤰

This newly laid out course is suitable for FitPros who want to learn how to safely sign off their postnatal clients back into mainstream exercise 💡

And, help build your confidence when working with this specialist population ✅

There's an element of pre-hab over re-hab in this course too, so if you're keen to learn how you can lessen your pregnant clients' chances of suffering with conditions such as diastasis recti, post-birth, this program is definitely for you 🤓

More details to follow on all my platforms on Thursday, so to make sure you don't miss out:

I've been invited to speak at a local annual conference on CLIENT BOUNDARIES to a group of small, service-based businesses 🙋‍♀️

The talk is only 10 minutes 😅 and I mean, seriously, I could talk about boundaries, terms and conditions, sacking toxic clients, getting money out of people, what to do when someone asks for a refund, free versus paid advice etc.... for like HOURS! 🎤

Question is: should I say "yes" to this opportunity...? What do you think…?🤷‍♀️

FitPros: boundaries are important to put in place in your business ✅

Even setting simple things like expiry dates to your PT packages, and informing clients of what your email response times are can be a super way of getting back in the driving seat of your business 🚗

Check out my Boundaries For Business course if you need help in this department (link in bio) 🆘

I created this private podcast feed with you, the FitPro in mind, and please know that you can put terms and conditions in place in a way that works best for you and your clients, ok? 🙌

I received a message from a pelvic floor 1:1 client yesterday and she'd basically dropped off the radar. I know I'm going to sound like the most insensitive PT when I say this, but I don't tend to follow up clients if they go a bit MIA 🤷‍♀️

One of her questions in her email was "I wanted to check how long I have before my sessions expire with you?" ✅

She's paid for 5 sessions but only used 2 so far, so I'm here to say that EXPIRY DATES are really important to put in place here, fellow FitPros 👍🏻

Her next sentence is "I'll look at your calendar now and book some sessions with you", which is great because that means she'll just book in her remaining appointments automatically behind-the-scenes, without me having to respond to her straight away with the link etc 💻

And, actually I don't need to respond urgently anyway because my EMAIL RESPONSE time is 48 hours 😉

These are all basic terms and conditions and boundaries you need in place in your personal training or fitness business 👩‍💼

And, if you weren't aware, I have an entire private podcast feed about boundaries 🙌🏻

As a busy FitPro, do you ever feel like you have zero motivation to work on your business? 😴

Like you just can't summon the energy or maintain focus for long enough to actually make any progress? 🥱

Motivation is something that we've all struggled with (guilty over here too! 🙋‍♀️).

So what should you do when you've got SO many tasks on your to-do list, but you can't seem to actually get any of them done? 🤯

Often when we lack motivation it's because of a deeper reason. This week in the #PelvicpreneurPodcast, I'll be explaining:

✅ WHY we sometimes experience a dip in motivation
✅ What to do when motivation hits an all-time low
✅ 4 actionable questions to ask yourself to be aware of the signs in the future

So if you're ready to get fired up and ready to blast through your task list, pop in your earbuds and tune in now! 🎧

August is a weird month for FitPros, isn’t it? If you’ve lost your mojo a little of late, keep reading…

I think it’s normal sometimes when we struggle to motivate ourselves to do those all-important tasks that will drive our business forwards. ⚡️

Teaching and interacting with clients daily means you often have a constant smile on your face, and that's an energy drain in itself, isn't it? 😴

If you've ever felt like taking a nanna nap during the day because you just can't bring yourself to face your To-Do List for the afternoon, please know that that's ok, and oftentimes feeling this way happens for a deeper reason. 🥱

In this week's thought-provoking episode of the #PelvicpreneurPodcast, I'll be explaining:

✅ WHY we sometimes experience a dip in motivation
✅ What to do when motivation hits an all-time low
✅ 4 actionable questions to ask yourself to be aware of the signs in the future

This may be one of those episodes that you listen to once to get yourself fired up to take action, but it may also be worth adding this segment to your "downloads" in your podcast app, to return to at a later date when you really need that motivational voice in your ear! 💪

Pop your headphones on, grab a pen and paper, and tune in now! 🎧

I situated myself at my local coworking office space today and it was super fun 💻

I spent the day uploading content from a retired FitPro CPD/CEU certification that I want to put back up on my website… 🤓

…and a change of scenery is definitely needed for that sort of task for me 😂

I think I managed to upload 8 or 9 modules so far today, and going back through the content, I realised that this course is actually very simple in design which is one of my strengths (because gosh some people over complicate exercise sometimes, don’t they?)💡

If you work with postnatal clients and you feel a tad overwhelmed treating them post birth, and you’d welcome a step-by-step approach, then keep your eyes peeled for when this course will be available again for you 👀

When it comes to advising clients with prolapse about the do's and don’ts of exercise, for the FitPro, it can sometimes feel a bit awkward, can't it? 😬

Maybe someone somewhere has said to one of your POP clients "Don't lift your toddler", or "Using hand weights is an absolute no-no", or "Squats are best avoided" etc… 🤷‍♀️

…and this advice sometimes makes you scratch your head, and even worse - it makes you question yourself as a pelvic floor specialist too, doesn't it? 😱

In episode 119 of the #PelvicpreneurPodcast, I'm sharing some past prolapse client case studies where these scenarios have happened to me, and the strategies I applied to overcome them. 💪

(Note: don't miss the BEST part of the episode right at the end, where I clarify EXACTLY which exercises, activities, movements and/or sports your prolapse clients should avoid doing!) 😁

Grab your earbuds, tune into episode 119 now and enjoy! 🎧

As a FitPro, have you ever found it awkward when a prolapse client has been told that they SHOULDN'T be doing something? 😬

Stopping squatting?

Using hand weights is a no-no?

Avoid picking up their own child?

It can put you in a difficult position, can't it? 🤯

If this has ever been an issue for you, you're in luck. 🤩

In this week's episode of the #PelvicpreneurPodcast (out NOW!), I'm sharing some of my past prolapse client case studies where this has happened, how I handled them, and the exercises that you really SHOULD be avoiding when it comes to POP patients 👍
