Completing the course has given me more confidence in myself. It's also given me a greater awareness and understanding of how everyday movements impact my core. I already had some understanding of posture and breathing techniques when exercising, but it was great to dedicate some focused time to this and to go through the exercises and techniques thoroughly. Following the course, I feel more in control of my pelvic floor. I can now stop myself from going when I get a sudden urge, and therefore have a lot less (if any) leaking now. I also feel stronger in my core overall.
The course was really really helpful, thank-you. I have seen a big improvement in pelvic floor strength, especially in terms of leaking when jumping/sneezing etc. Pip was brilliant at explaining how pelvic core strength relates to breath control and how to use breathing to engage the core. My back is also less sore and I feel healthier in general
I am alot more aware now of how to hold myself during both exercising and every day activities, and I feel more confident that I can take what I've learnt to help with improving my fitness level.
Taking that time each week to regroup and focus on new exercises really helped keep the momentum up. From the very first class Pip’s way of explaining the pelvic floor and the breathing really was a “lightbulb” moment for me, and ever since that first class I have been able to focus my attention on my core in everyday life.
I feel confident about what exercises I can do that will help my core and not cause damage. I have noticed more strength and better apparence around my middle as a result which is a great confidence boost.
Hugely beneficial. Gave me back core strength, confidence, less back pain, better looking 'mummy pouch' - reduced significantly.
The course has been truly great in helping me along the way to postpartum recovery. My prolapse symptoms started greatly improving around week 3 of the programme which was amazing and motivated me to keep going. I used to wear pelvic floor support shorts but since completing the course I no longer need them!
The course has been hugely beneficial to me! Having suffered a bladder prolapse 3 months ago, I haven’t been able to do much exercise or even normal day-to-day activities. My strength has increased significantly and my connection to my pelvic floor is so much better. My physio has seen a dramatic improvement and is now helping me work back towards high impact exercise.
I definitely feel stronger both in my core and pelvic floor. As a result day to day activities with small Children I feel I have more strength.
There has been a real improvement in my pelvic and core strength got me back to exercise after a major gynaecological surgery.
My son is 7 months old and I am already 2 kilos lighter than I was pre-pregnancy. Pip certainly works you hard but her classes are fun, varied & you will see results quickly. I even completed a triathlon recently as well as getting back to full fitness for netball, all thanks to Pip.
I have just seen a photo of myself at a wedding on Sunday (in a sleeveless dress!) and an old friend commented on my arm muscle definition! I just wanted to say thank you – it’s all down to you. Nobody else would ever have got me doing press ups and lifting heavy weights. Thank you so much – am feeling quite proud!
Part trainer, part life coach, part friend: Pip is a fantastic, friendly person to work with who helped me to achieve better results than I thought possible, and taught me so much that I can now exercise safely after childbirth and will never do another sit-up again! Every session was pitched at exactly the right level to really push me, but still be achievable and enjoyable.
Wanted to tell you that I've just bought size 12 jeans. I went up to a size 16 after having my second baby 15 months ago (Aurelia, who comes to some of the classes with me) A combination of your classes, my spinning bike and eating healthily has helped me drop the weight.
After hitting the post-baby weight loss plateau, thanks to Pip, I am now the strongest and fittest I think I've ever been and I've also gone down a dress size to boot. Thanks Pip, you're a miracle worker!
I now feel more confident in my body and am being more adventurous with my clothes. I'm so thrilled to learn I've lost several inches and dropped at least a dress size...but had the best time doing it!
I'm quite shocked how little I knew about the pelvic floor after my first pregnancy and how important it is not to rush things! After training with you I definitely feel more educated on the signs to look out for over working the pelvic floor and how to engage my core more in all that I do. I would strongly recommend you to new mums who want to get back into fitness safely.
Extremely beneficial! The gap in my stomach muscles has almost gone, I have increased definition and am well on the way to getting my pre mummy tummy back!
I followed the diastasis course with Pip and have seen fantastic results. When I started I was very unhappy with my shape and was suffering with almost constant back pain. After 3 months there was a massive difference in both the size of the gap and the strength of my muscles.
Great course. Definitely improved awareness of pelvic floor and how it works functions. The course has improved strength and control.
