Core Restore Programme
Training designed specifically for you and your life, brought directly to your home for your convenience.
This is an exercise, nutrition and lifestyle personal training programme for women who want to really address the strength and functionality of their core and pelvic floor.
We are looking to improve posture and the aesthetics of your body but most importantly strengthen your body so that it is functionally fit to handle everything you need it to do and more with ease.
Regardless of how long ago you had your children, or even if you have never had children, you may have noticed a weakening in your pelvic floor. It may be recent or you may have had it since giving birth and simply assumed that it’s something to put up with. You might be hesitant to laugh, sneeze, cough, run, move suddenly or jump. You may not have have any of these symptoms and simply decided to give your core and pelvic floor a little TLC to ensure that it is working optimally.
With the correct lifting, breathing and moving techniques we can manage, improve and strengthen your pelvic floor so that it works when you need it too.
We want to learn how to use your breath to protect your body and pelvic floor when you carry out everyday movements – lifting, carrying, pushing, pulling, bending, twisting, turning, reaching, squatting, lunging, getting up, getting down.
Before commencing with any kind of exercise programme you will have an initial consultation – Initially I will send you an online questionnaire to complete then during this first hour and a half we go over your questionnaire, we look at your breathing technique, posture and trigger points. Using simple exercises and verbal feedback we check that your pelvic floor and TVA is working in synergy with your breath.
We discuss what your movement, lifestyle or body goal is and work towards it. Depending on the information discovered during this consultation I will give you some stretches, muscle releases and initial strength/breath exercises to use to realign your body and to start strengthening your core. We work on strengthening pelvic floor as well as how to relax pelvic floor, which is just as important.
We will talk about nutrition and lifestyle and I will make recommendations that will help you restore your core and pelvic floor and re-balance hormones.
The information gathered in this initial consultation is used as a starting point for your personal core restore programme plan with each session building on the exercises until you are moving confidently, freely, comfortably and easily, feeling strong and full of energy.
Please note:- Cases of diastasis recti or pelvic floor dysfunction are managed carefully and depending on the severity it may involve working alongside a Woman’s Health Physiotherapist.
What my clients say...
“I have been seeing Jo for well over 2 years and I can honestly say she has changed my life .
Her support, advice and motivation has turned me from a run hating grandma to a 12km run loving super Nannie , I have never exercised in my life , now I can’t imagine my week without it . With her focused one to one support and attention I have reduced the ” bad ” fat around my organs , increased my muscle mass and have a metabolic age of a 35 year old , not bad for a 58 year old !
She supports me through my struggles , sets me challenges and gets me through my “loss of mojo” days . I consider her a friend and mentor and knowing her has truly enriched my life , and it’s fun !!! - Ann
"I have been training with Jo for over three years now. In my experience she offers so much more than a ‘normal’ personal trainer. Jo gets to know her clients very quickly, identifies their strengths and, more importantly, their areas of weakness. She is always looking for new challenges to keep me motivated and sends messages between sessions to ensure that I stay on track. When we are training Jo has an uncanny knack of knowing exactly when she can push me as she knows I still have more ‘in the tank’ and when it’s time to let me rest (it’s usually the former!). I hope to train with Jo for many years to come and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her" - Andy
"I’ve been training with Jo for a while now, and usually see her every 5 weeks or so and she’s helped me change my lifestyle massively. Not only have I lost weight, built muscle and become fitter, but my attitude to exercise has changed; my knowledge of nutrition and food has increased and I feel so much better for it. Jo is always so flexible and she makes our sessions interesting and fun and always incorporates things I like doing. She pushes me to work hard and motivates me – but she’s also understanding when ‘life’ can sometimes get in the way, and helps me get back on track. She’s also been very supportive with health issues I’ve had and has adapted my training programmes and our sessions.
I always look forward to our sessions and feel brilliant after them – I really am so grateful to Jo for all of her ongoing support, motivation and the advice she gives me." - Katie
"Working out with Jo on my fitness has been great . Jo has been nothing but encouraging and supportive of all aspects of my well being , not just my muscles ! She encourages me and believes in me and got me totally ready for skiing !
She will message me to keep me motivated between sessions , and knows exactly how I tick .
She offers advice on nutrition as well to help me meet my goals . Jo is a great personal trainer who goes above and beyond and I recommend her highly 🙂" - Vicky
