We are pleased to be able to offer special core corrective exercise programs for gymnasts! Gina Paulhus is a Certified Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist as well as a Certified Personal Trainer. She uses her knowledge and experience to help gymnasts of all ages bulletproof their core from diastasis recti or muscles imbalances as well as help with pelvic floor issues.
Gina competed in gymnastics starting in childhood. She continued on competing until her late 30s! She works with pregnant and postpartum gymnasts on a regular basis. She can use the same corrective exercises that she uses for postpartum clients to help younger athletes with issues with the functioning of their core or pelvic floor, too. No one is too young for corrective exercise, and prevention is always the best medicine!
Corrective Exercise for Pelvic Floor is Much Needed with Many Gymnasts
Pelvic floor issues are exceedingly common among athletes across a variety of sports. 52.5% athletes deal with incontinence - wow! Reports of leaking occur in 28% to 80% of participants in sports such as trampolining, gymnastics, aerobic gymnastics, hockey and dance. Pelvic floor issues can have effects on the functioning of our entire core, so it's critical to improve the health and function of the pelvic floor when there are symptoms.
