  • Training for Warriors Portland 1338 Southeast 6th Avenue Portland, OR, 97214 United States (map)

Have you ever experienced lower back pain or urine leakage when laughing, sneezing, coughing, playing, running, weight-lifting, skating, etc?
 

Please join us for this fun and enlightening session about your pelvic floor… and get a better understanding of how to take care of your body and improve your quality of life!

Pelvic floor issues are a common problem, but they don't have to be! The pelvic floor is our foundation and it takes the brunt of our weight. HOWEVER, we can ALL have control of our pelvic floor, no matter what our age is.

At this seminar, you will:

- Learn about what your pelvic floor IS

- Learn about the myths and facts about pelvic floor health and how it relates not only to bladder control but also to sexual health, your ability to strengthen your core and your overall fitness level

- Learn how to test your own pelvic floor, how to fix pelvic floor issues, and how to progress your pelvic floor and core strength to maximize your fitness and reach your goals.

This event is for all women!

...including moms with embarrassing bladder issues, diastasis recti (abdominal separation), prolapse, painful intercourse, etc. Also, for all women who may be struggling to run as far or as fast as they want, and women feeling at a standstill in their weightlifting abilities.

Please RSVP on the Facebook event page HERE and share with your friends!
