Short (15-35 minute) online workouts that fit into your life, around your commitments and get results for improving your core and pelvic floor strength.
The core rehab programme was born during lockdown when access to information for women to rehab their bodies was limited. However I can see just how much easier this could make it for some women to access information if they are remote or find it challenging to make a class in person for whatever reason.
The difference between a pre-recorded class and a in-person class is that at home there is no instructor to offer an alternative or guide you through technique. I have taken the time to explain on a deep level the technique so you are comfortable that you are doing the right thing and both of the core rehab programmes start with an overview of how the core works so you can really understand your journey.
To bridge the gap of not having an alternative exercise, there are options to choose throughout and as an extra to these classes you are always welcome to send videos for feedback on technique.
All the workouts are between 15-40 minutes in length s you can fit them into your day. If you have more time simply add on another workout. They get progressively more challenging within the 6 week time period and you will have a suggested workout to do 4-5 days a week for those 6 weeks. The more you do the stronger you will become

For some women we need to look deeper at areas of the body that are stopping progress naturally - perhaps in tightness or weakness and for some women it's a matter of strengthening areas that have become over-stretched and weak. For some it's a big mixture of the two.
