The Pelvic Floor Matters – Menopause and the Active Woman CPD Course is a practical 3 hour course run by appointment.  You can do the course as an individual, or organise a group of fitness trainers to complete it together.

 

It is vitally important for all personal trainers, group fitness instructors and fitness professionals who work with women of any age to know which exercises may put damaging pressure on the pelvic floor, but menopausal women are particularly at risk.  Reduced estrogen levels can cause pelvic muscles to weaken and decrease the flow of blood to the pelvic region.

Suitable for Personal Trainers, Group Fitness Instructors and Fitness Professionals

Successful attendees are eligible for 2.5 CPD Points.

Course Costs
$75 per person (minimum 4 and maximum 12 people)
$300 for one on one trainer training or $150 for 2 trainers
