Here are some success stories from women I have worked with recently…
After having my baby I was struggling with a lack of motivation, low self-esteem and couldn’t understand why I hadn’t been able to get straight back into fitness in the same way as I had pre-baby. Sian has not only helped me massively improve my pelvic floor health and show me how to ease myself back into exercise but has also taught me the importance of being kind to myself as a new mum and giving my body what it really needs.
The fact that Sian is a mum and has experienced the same things really put me at ease. It can be daunting when you have been fit and healthy pre-baby and the fact that Sian was living proof that the programme works was really inspiring. I loved the chats at the end of each session – nutrition, bladder health etc… There are so many topics that women should be told about after birth and they just aren’t discussed so this was extremely helpful and has had a massive impact on how I look after myself and my body. As well as the benefits to my pelvic floor and fitness, the programme was really good fun and forced me to find some me-time in my week.
I feel stronger in my pelvic floor and generally. I’ve improved my mild diastasis, and feel that I am leaking less. It’s also given me the tools to start making changes in other areas of my life and I feel empowered and encouraged to do so now.
It has given me a greater awareness of my pelvic floor and understanding of the wider impacting factors. Over the six weeks, I have noticed an improvement to my general feeling of fitness and ability to isolate and control my pelvic floor. It had a very relaxed and friendly feel which meant I didn’t feel awkward talking about what essentially is a private matter. I was nervous about attending this course but am so glad I did. If women are in doubt about whether this course is for them I’d strongly advise giving it a chance.
I had no idea how connected the pelvic floor is to the lower back, hips etc… and have seen a marked improvement from this course. I have really noticed an improvement in the six weeks as my lower back is not painful and I definitely have a stronger pelvic floor. My balance has improved too. I enjoyed the group and the friendly atmosphere. The course was also really interesting.
The programme has given me a fantastic understanding of my whole body. I am now confident to exercise following childbirth and am following a much more nutritious diet without “being on a diet!”. The small class size was very good and enabled Sian to pay attention to each individual’s needs. It also gave me the confidence to speak up and ask questions – if it were a larger group I think I may have found this a little daunting to do. Sian is very encouraging, an excellent communicator and her motivational techniques are great. I highly recommend the course to any woman.
