Special Core Corrective Exercise and Pelvic Floor Programs for Gymnasts, as Well as General Conditioning Plans
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!
Gymnastics-Specific Conditioning Plans
Whether you're an adult gymnastics coach, or an adult gymnast yourself, I can create the perfect gymnastics conditioning plan for you! I was able to successfully compete as a level 8 adult gymnast in my 30s without a lot of talent but a whole lot of heart and I know what it takes! I can help create a home or gym-based conditioning program - either from scratch or to supplement what you're already doing. Learn more about our Adult Gymnastics Conditioning Plan Program. You can also schedule a Free 15 Minute Consult with Gina Paulhus to talk about your needs.
Core Corrective Exercise Helps Correct Diastasis Recti in Gymnasts
There are more gymnasts with diastasis recti than you may think. When you have a diastasis, it means that the abdominal muscles are separated at the midline further than they should be. Adult gymnasts who are postpartum as well as gymnasts of all ages can be affected. Luckily, help is available so that these athletes can get back to the sport they love - safely!

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.
