I've just tried out captions in my IG Stories and of course it's had me saying "Pelvic PRUNE" Podcast instead of Pelvicpreneur Podcast 😂

Don't get me wrong: it's a really nifty time-saving feature (some accounts have it, others don't, so don't shoot the messenger here), and I wasn't sure how it was going to deal with my Aussie accent to be fair, but this error really did make me laugh! 😂

Have you got auto captions in your stories yet? 🙌🏻

Not sure if you actually have it or not? 🤔

Record a quick video story of you talking, then hit the square smiley face thing at the top, and search for "captions" ⬆️⬆️

You're welcome! And, here's to more transcription fails, huh?! 😆

Are you embracing the full-body approach to pelvic floor dysfunction, but unsure if you should advise clients to STOP doing the Kegels if a Women's Health Physio or Physical Therapist has prescribed them?

Have you ever wondered what would happen if clients STOPPED doing Kegels and find yourself torn to know what the best advice is?

Do you want an action-plan and a list questions to ask yourself to determine if Kegels are or aren't appropriate long-term for clients with stress incontinence?

Well, tune into this week's episode of the #PelvicpreneurPodcast where Claire answers the "To Kegel Or Not To Kegel" conundrum for you

Take me on a walk for the ultimate natural movement experience, and enjoy

Your mind and pelvic floor will thank you!

Today's a special day! On this day 21 years ago, I boarded a plane from Melbourne, Australia, with a few thousand Aussie dollars in the bank and a one-way ticket to start my European backpacking adventure

My first stop wasn't Heathrow it was actually Vienna where I stayed for 3 nights, because I flew with Austrian Airlines

I'd learnt German at school (ridiculous, because there aren't many German speakers in Oz!), but I found myself being able to read signs, menus and greet people, so my first experience of a foreign country wasn't all that bad

I've travelled through all the former Yugoslav countries, all the Scandi ones, been to the Baltics, met a millionaire in Instanbul, really really struggled in The Ukraine, got food poisoning in China (but somehow summoned the energy to visit The Great Wall), and hitchhiked in Switzerland sat in a rocking chair in the back of an antique dealer's van

I still prefer Eastern to Western Europe, having ticked off most of the countries in that region

My most soul-searching trip was the Trans-Siberian railway in the depths of winter circa 2002/03, where I met maybe 5 other English speakers in 29 days, overstayed my Russian visa (not advised), but I have the most amazing story to tell about that (check out episode 52 of the #PelvicpreneurPodcast if you want to hear it)

I lived in Slovakia for 2 years, and made some friends for life. It's also there that I decided to change career and return to Nottingham to do my Personal Trainer qualification, and that's my entry into the fitness industry, so there you go

Country count is currently at 44, but these places are definitely on my to do list:

*Albania (the beaches are apparently stunning),
*Belarus (it's one Eastern European country I haven't been to, and it's got something about it, but I'd definitely go in the summer time for the Communist feel to not depress me - har har!),
*Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan (I like places off the tourist trail and if you look at the location of these: sea, mountains, lakes, architecture - I want to go!)

What's travel mean to you? Is it the people you meet, the food, the local firewater, the kindness of strangers, the independence?
...

If you're a FitPro who's feeling the pressure to return to face-to-face services, tune into episode 62 of the #PelvicpreneurPodcast NOW!

I feel you right now. Lockdown is easing in some parts of the world, and it's likely you feel totally overwhelmed, and have several decisions to make about which classes to keep online, which ones to go back to face-to-face, and which ones to CANCEL altogether!

Want some helpful advice? Well, the latest podcast episode titled: "Deciding whether to teach face-to-face or online" will sort you out, so go and check it out now

Do you want to be known as the Pilates instructor who follows the crowd? Because this might be the way you're headed if you keep going down this path… ⚰️

Who was it that recommended that 6-week courses were The Law when it comes to teaching Pilates classes…? 🤷‍♀️

Sure, we need commitment from our clients to turn up, show up and progress through the exercise repertoire, but does it HAVE to be 6 weeks, as though it's set in stone…? 🪨

I want you to know that you can operate your business however you want to, you can make money doing it, and you can take time off whenever you like too (you're the boss, remember?) 👩‍💻

If 6-week courses are LIMITING you, and/or your clients in some way, please know that there are so many other pricing options available which:

✅ help you cut down the time it takes to collect payments (because that's an absolute bind every 6 weeks, isn't it?)
✅ still provide flexible attendance for your clients, and
✅ provide you with income into your fitness business all-year round

Want to learn other ways of pricing your classes that offer you consistent income, provide wiggle room for clients, but most of all, more freedom for you…?

Well, you're in luck, because I'm teaching ALL of the pricing strategies I've used in my very own successful fitness business in my NEW 2-hour workshop 🙌🏻

Profit, Pricing + Productivity Workshop:
📆 Monday 19th April 2021
⏲ London 12-2pm / Sydney 9-11pm / New York 7-9am
📍 Zoom (replay available)

Link is in the bio!

Let's say YES to getting you out of the 6-week Pilates course grave, shall we? 🙋🏼‍♀️
...

Are you really undecided about which classes to keep teaching on Zoom, and which ones to teach face-to-face?

Do you feel like you want to go back to serving some clients in real life, but you kind of promised yourself that you'd make changes to how your run your business going forward and now you feel scared…?

Well, as the world slowly opens up again and lockdown eases in some parts of the world, it's definitely a confusing time for the fitness professional, and chances are you have several decisions to make, and you feel totally overwhelmed by it all

Over on the #PelvicpreneurPodcast this week, I'm dedicating a whole NEW episode to this topic

So, allow me to guide you through the process of making the BEST decisions possible for your clients post-Covid, and ultimately ensure that you go armed with all of your bases covered

I'm up early today to Zoom with my 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 - I love my job!

Here's a selection of some of the questions I'm answering on today's call below:

✅ Is over active bladder a pelvic floor issue or an issue of its own?
✅ I have a prolapse client and I can see that she understands why we are doing the YPM exercises. However, I get the feeling that she would like to have some further challenging exercises now, so would adding in squats and lunges, and some transverse moves be ok?
✅ In the "Standing Stance" my knees turn in and many of my clients' do too. ✅ What is the best way to walk in order to maintain/encourage this external rotation of the femur?
✅ I'm looking to write my own pelvic floor course and create a series of courses for different fitness methods. From your experience, would you recommend 6 weeks as the best timeframe for the pelvic floor one, and then similar course lengths thereafter? I would really welcome your guidance on this.
✅ When you’ve worked with pregnant and early postnatal or breastfeeding clients, what guidance have you given them in relation to their higher levels of relaxin?
✅ When you build relationships with other pelvic health professionals, how much of the YPM approach do you share with them?
✅ I'm curious how working with a recent postpartum anal prolapse would differ from a prolapse that happens over time. Or, would you treat them the same?

All in a day's work over here as a #Pelvicpreneur and #YourPelvicMatters creator! 🙌

Some super varied discussions this month as you can see, and I surprise myself with the amount of advice, experience and skills my brain possesses sometimes 🧠 🤣

What a great start to the week, huh? Happy Monday! 😍

This week on the podcast, we're joined by special guest, @_jesshoover, who's an Intuitive Life Coach and she's here to talk about MINDSET, and in particular money mindset

The way in which people en masse are advised to address their money mindset is not necessarily helpful, so, if you believe that you can simply change your money mindset just by thinking differently - you could be mistaken here

In this episode, Jess uncovers the truth about:

1⃣ where our stories and beliefs about money actually stem from,
2⃣ why we feel stuck when we want to do simple things in our business like raise our prices, and
3⃣ why we've all denied ourselves joy from not purchasing something that we really wanted due to its price, at some point or another

If you're a fitness professional and you're still turning up to teach a Zoom class for 2 people because you think it's the right thing to do…

…strap yourself in Jess' answer to that question in this full-length, uncensored episode, and enjoy!

FitPros, I know there are a lot of moving parts to your business, and I know there are some tasks you absolutely hate doing. Am I right, or am I right?

If you're completely averse to paying someone like a Virtual Assistant to DO the work you hate doing, then the only option you've got here is to work out ways that you can do these dreaded tasks quicker

Out now on the #PelvicpreneurPodcast is an episode on 3 Ways To Improve Productivity (And Why Fancy Planners Don't Work!), so search "Pelvicpreneur Podcast" in your podcast app, and enjoy!

I'd love to know what 3 tasks you HATE doing in your business!

(My 3 are in the comments below! ⬇⬇⬇)

I met a Pilates instructor once who admitted she hadn't raised her prices in 10 years. 10 years!!? I was like "Are you kidding me?!"

Venue hire, insurance, Zoom, music licences, music playlists, audio/visual equipment, exercise equipment, cleaning supplies, online file storage, graphic design programs, stationery, Accountant's fees, footwear, clothing - the cost of these do NOT stay the same for 10 years - they all increase, don’t they?

All of the costs associated with running your fitness business go up, and unless you're packing MORE people into your classes (unlikely right now), you're actually earning LESS than you were the year before

I know you want to keep your rates the same, because you're really fearful that you'll scare clients away if you raise your prices

I know that you think it's fairer for your clients to just keep the class fees the same, because well, 2020 was a rough year and you feel sorry for them

But, at the end of the day, you're running a business not a charity, and I'm a mission this year to help you, the FitPro, earn what you deserve

Do you want to gain money confidence when it comes to pricing your classes and charging your worth?

Want to learn how to break the cycle of over-delivering and under-charging for your services?

Eager to discover ways to get much needed cash injection and find hidden profit in your fitness business?

Well, I'm teaching ALL of this and more in my NEW 2-hour workshop on Profit, Pricing + Productivity Workshop

📆 Monday 19th April 2021
⏲ London 12-2pm / Sydney 9-11pm / New York 7-9am
