Time and time again, we make a promise to ourselves that this year we WILL get fit – both internally and externally. Yet, somehow December has already come around again, and the illusion of a 2018 fitness goddess has been shattered. That’s why you need to make 2019 your year of supreme fitness – starting with giving some TLC (Tender Loving Care) to your pelvic floor.
It’s important that you improve yourself from the inside out. You don’t want to be that person who throws themselves into jogging just to quit from embarrassment a few minutes in after suffering from a little leakage.
What’s vital to remember is that 1 in 3 women suffer from a pelvic floor disorder and it is easily treatable. You are NOT alone. So, if you’re looking to break this statistic and get fit in the New Year, remember to give some love to your pelvic floor; read on to learn how.
How to Exercise Your Pelvic Floor
If you’re planning to make 2019 your year, Kegels are going to be a vital part of your fitness regime. If you need help in locating your pelvic floor muscles, try performing your Kegels against a resistance device such as the Kegel8 Vaginal Cones - where you get to see your muscles working in real-time! Strengthening your pelvic floor can benefit your health in a whole host of ways, including:
