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 that work for you through years of trialling and testing a variety of methods and as a result, creating a powerful system that finally delivers consistent results in treating PFD.

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?

Can you believe that it's June already? How time flies when you're having fun, huh? 🤸‍♀️

This week on the #PelvicpreneurPodcast I'm giving you a personal and professional update on what the first 6 months of 2021 have entailed for me 📝

Burnout is real people, and if you've ever experienced it, or been close to it in the past, it's definitely best avoided ❌

I see a lot of FitPros that are tired, drained and exhausted. And, you're working really hard, and you’re working really long hours, and you really believe that hard work = success 😳

I'm not here to follow the crowd, but rather set my own path, and most podcasters don't open up the mic and let their audience in behind the scenes, but…this episode is definitely something you can learn from 🎙

Of course there are actionable tips and there's plenty to share for you to pick and mix from! I really want you to learn from me on such things as:

🛌 slowing down in your business
🚪 setting boundaries with clients, and
💆‍♀️ how to factor in more self-care for your mind and body

Strap yourself in, pop your barefoot shoes on, and take yourself off into nature for this episode (trees are mentioned!) 🌳

And, taking a leaf out of my own book here (who doesn’t love a pun?), I'm now taking a break from the podcast after this episode, with the usual weekly schedule recommencing from Thursday 1st July 2021. See you then! 😬

Oh, keep an eye on my Instagram Stories for our adventures in Tulip the caravan from South Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

PSA: you do not need to use social media to market your local fitness/pelvic floor business, and if you've been posting on Facebook and Instagram, and it's taking up ALL of your valuable time, it's draining you of ALL your energy, and no one's commenting, liking, messaging you, and definitely not clicking your website...then I'm here to tell you: you do NOT have to use social media to get local clients in your fitness classes or your PFD Personal Training clinic 🙌

I know the struggle is real with Facebook and Instagram right now. The algorithm for Facebook Pages is almost a situation where it's like "Now you see me, now you don't", isn't it? 🧙‍♂

I however, can help! 🙋‍♀

In Sunday's Pelvicpreneur newsletter I'm listing 3 ways to attract local clients WITHOUT using social media ❌

Just click the link in the bio, confirm your subscription (because you know - GDPR and all that) and I'll have that article hit your inbox bright and early Sunday morning 😎

Sound good?

What are your thoughts on using social media to attract local clients? Do you love it, loathe it, feel it draining?

We're not talking PE here folks, but movement - there is a difference! 🙅‍♀️

As you'll learn to understand in this eye-opening interview, there are huge benefits to making even the teeniest of changes in the current set up of classrooms, to promote better learning.

DID YOU KNOW that simply removing pupil's shoes has a profound impact on the physical and mental health of school aged children? 😳🦶🏻

Started my day with a coaching call pelvic floor teachers inside my Your Pelvic Matters community! 🙌🏻

I've had LOTS of questions submitted ahead of this month's group coaching call, and all of these questions are so educated and mixed. What can I say, love my job! 🤩

Here's a selection of some of the questions I'm answering on today's call below::
✅ "What are some strategies to get over a client who depresses you. How can I work on myself to get over it?"
✅ "What are some of the suggestions/knowledge/things to avoid when working with new mothers who are still in their first 6-8 weeks?"
✅ "The YPM squat. If a client trains in the gym or whatever, we aren't expecting them to swap their weightlifting squat for this type of squat are we?"
✅ "Barefoot shoes. Realistically, how many clients want to swap their aesthetically-pleasing shoes for the barefoot version? What's the happy medium here?"
✅ "I have a client who when she squeezes a slightly inflated Pilates ball in her upper thigh has experienced sharp, shooting pains in her pelvic floor. Would you think this is the same reason or have any other ideas?"
✅ "How long would you make a video for in a pelvic floor online course? Would you think it best to record the video without any sound and then do a voice recording over it? If so, which recording software/website would you recommend to use?"
✅ "I'm starting to reach out to local yoga studios to offer pelvic floor workshops to their clients. I want to avoid teaching them "how" to do something, that's my natural default but I don't want to give it all away. The ultimate goal is to get new 1:1 clients"

All in a day's work over here as a #Pelvicpreneur! Super varied discussions as you can see, and I even surprised myself with the amount of advice, experience and skills my brain possesses sometimes 🧠 😂

If you have major FOMO right now because the pelvic floor courses you're a part of don't offer this amount of on-going support, guidance and help to make your pelvic floor business a success, DM the words "Your Pelvic Matters" for more info 🙌🏻

Have a great Thursday! 🤸‍♀️
...

My pelvic floor clients have come across some interesting advice from other experts over the years (can you relate?) 🙋🏼‍♀️

I believe there to be 2 different types of pelvic floor expert and the difference depends on:

💯 your ATTITUDE to your clients' goals, and
👍🏻 the LANGUAGE you use

Have you considered where you fit in the myriad of approaches to pelvic floor dysfunction that are out there? 🧩

Because, I believe everyone has their place, and I am NOT precious about keeping my pelvic floor clients in my clinic 🤷‍♀️

(in fact, I want them to spread their wings and fly away, out into the wide world of mainstream exercise again!)

I'm shedding light on this topic in episode 68 of the #PelvicpreneurPodcast (available now) 🎙

Listen out for some real life examples of clients I've worked with, what their goals were, and how I've been able to reduce the symptoms of even the most acute cases of stress incontinence, in a relatively short space of time, simply by tuning in to my clients' needs 💕

Are you working with pelvic floor clients online and feel like your teaching skills could do with some improvement?

Have you found doing PT on Zoom for pelvic floor clients ok, but it's certainly been a bit of an adjustment?

Need some help simplifying what it is you're teaching because you're so used to being able to get "hands-on"?

Well, check out episode 67 of the Pelvicpreneur Podcast for my top tips on improving your online teaching skills

With social media being so public, it's likely that you've been attacked online at some point as a business owner (or know someone that has) 😢

It's not nice, it's not fair, and sadly it's often women tearing other women down (ever realised that?) 😱

Which approach is best? It's difficult to know, isn't it?

Should you:

1⃣ give the bully the silent treatment and ignore them, or
2⃣ dive into the comments, defend yourself and let your voice be heard?

Bullying in business occurs more frequently than we'd like to admit 😭

And, if you've been on the receiving end of it, and unsure what your best course of action is, rest-assured that I'm here to help this week with a cracking episode on this topic over on the #PelvicpreneurPodcast to share some practical hints and tips on what to do when someone attacks you online 💕

Save this episode, take some notes and share it with a friend/colleague who could use it, and together we can make a difference.
