    046 | Decoding Pelvic Pain and Hypermobility in Women

    [Female Health, Physiotherapy]

    Join me in and epic conversation with Jaime Singleton, a women's health specialist and therapist with over 15 years of experience in the field. Jamie shares her expertise and insights on the often-misunderstood topic of pelvic floor health and explains why the commonly used cue "draw your belly button in towards your spine" is incorrect and can cause more harm than good.

    Listen in as Jaime shares her understanding of pelvic pain and discusses how conditions like endometriosis, pelvic girdle instability, and irritable bowel syndrome can all contribute to pelvic pain. We explore the complexities of pelvic pain and the importance of understanding the root cause in order to provide appropriate treatment. Jaime also helps us understand the impact of hypermobility on the body and how it can affect various aspects of women's health and fitness.

    Finally, we discuss the value of mentorship and collaboration within the women's health and fitness industry and how professionals can work together to ensure clients receive the best possible care. Jamie and I also talk about the importance of finding a qualified women's health or pelvic health physio to work with and how to create effective client-therapist relationships. Don't miss this enlightening and informative conversation with Jaime Singleton!

    045 | How To Create A Recognisable and Memorable Fitness Brand

    [Brand, Leadership]
    In this episode of the Training Women podcast, Nardia shares valuable insights on how personal trainers can build a recognisable and memorable brand. From recognising the value of their profession to seeing themselves as experts and leaders in the fitness industry, Nardia emphasises the need for concerted efforts over time to stand out from the competition.

    As she says in the show, "What are you willing to do that others won't in order to be in the top 1% of Fit Pros?".
    Even though there are more personal trainers and fitness coaches than ever, there is a significant need for high-quality fitness guidance, education, and information.
    This episode provides actionable advice for fitness professionals looking to make a lasting impact and income.

    044 | Should You Hire Your Own Personal Trainer If You're A Trainer?

    [Business, Leadership]
    👉 Women's Health + Program Design Mentorship program, get on the waitlist here.
    In my early days of certifying Personal Trainers at various registered training organisations, I would always ask the students the following question:
    "Should Personal Trainers hire their own Personal Trainer?"
    This simple question always led to vigorous debate much to my amusement, so in this TW episode, Olivia and I unpack this and share our thoughts around this.

    043 | Your Competitive Advantage

    043 | Your Competitive Advantage

    [Business]


    My husband and I have worked from home for almost 7 years, and while I am accustomed to managing our spaces well, I've been yearning for another space.

    A gym space to be precise. Over Project Undo I realised that I need to be around other humans; to have conversations with someone other than my husband and my coffee guy.

    As much as I love training from my home gym, I had to get out of the house.

    So I took advantage of a paid one-week trial at Legacy Through Movement, dusted off my workout shoes and headed in.

    What I've experienced with them has been nothing short of awesome. In fact, they have done some basic things, exceptionally fkn well.

    So well, I am compelled to share these with you, as both a reminder and a refresher of how you can be competitive in a market full of gyms and big box clubs.

    Tune into this episode where I jam on 3 powerful topics:

    1. Your unfair competitive advantage (that you probably take for granted)

    2. Why competing on price is a race to the bottom (you don't win by being the cheapest)

    3. The power of a paid trial (it's 2022 people, let's stop the free fkn trials already!)
    Enjoy

    042 |Don't Quit If You're Tired - The World Needs You

    The long-term consequences of Covid restrictions and all-around fkery are taking a toll on everyone, particularly Fitness Business owners and coaches.

    I've witnessed, and heard, the stories from coaches who are feeling let down, unmotivated, tired and unsure because of ongoing client illnesses and financial changes. Leading to an uptick in client cancellations, no-shows, a decrease in membership growth and an intense mental burden.

    If you resonate with this, then please know I SEE YOU.

    I see your struggles, your doubt and the wobbles in your conviction.

    Sure, it may all feel fken hard, and heavy right now, but let me assure you, this will pass.

    I promise you.

    In today's Training Women podcast episode, I share a love bomb from my heart to yours. Consider it a punchy little pop of cheerleading motivation coupled with some tough love strategy.

    Enjoy.

    041 | Why Clients Need An Aerobic Base

    041 | Why Clients Need An Aerobic Base

    Both Olivia and I have noticed a problem that's been popping up in the fitness industry, more so of late. And that is the issue of injecting women into workouts or training programs that include high-intensity interval training, or high-intensity resistance training, without a foundation of aerobic fitness.

    We see it all the time. While the responsibility falls on the trainer, part of this can also be blamed on the way the fitness industry has set up expectations.

    Many clients enter our training partnership with the preconceived idea that the trainer's (Gym) job is to make them sweaty, exhausted and feel 'as if they've done something hard'.

    The trainer then feels pressure to meet this expectation out of fear of losing the client if they don't give them what they want and expect.

    It's a vicious cycle that keeps both the client and trainer stuck in an inefficient (and potentially harmful) way of being. It's a lose-lose situation.

    When a fitness professional keeps prescribing high-intensity activity without first establishing a solid foundation of movement and capacity, it limits the client's potential.

    This is why both of us put a lot of attention on building a solid base of aerobic conditioning when building out programs (regardless of the goal).

    Tune in to hear us talk about:

    1. Why skipping aerobic conditioning is problematic

    2. Our definition of aerobic conditioning

    3. The big difference between developing fitness and just 'doing' fitness

    4. How to build this into your programming

    It's juicy so get ready to take notes!!

Excellent Fitness Business Mentor

All the good truth bombs backed by real fitness industry experience !!!

issyjoey ,

Content is on point for today’s Fitpro.

Nardia seems to know what topics to discuss, it’s relevant and gets you thinking about your business from a different angle.

Man Coach Mike ,

Nardia is LEGIT

While I might be more biased than most, Nardia's content for female fit-pros is second to none. Literally a powerhouse in personality and business mentorship for women, Nardia's content is super practical, fun, insightful, and useable.
I cannot recommend this highly enough for women wanting to transform their PT business or skillset.
Fan boy right here.
