Testimonials

🌺 Tracy is such a joy to learn from! Her passion and experience really shine and her communication and teaching skills were really inspiring.

🌺 Tracy is so full of knowledge and her eagerness to share it is so inspiring. Her endless knowledge makes me feel so lucky to know her, and yet she is so accessible, and never intimidates me, she treats everyone as her equal and that makes for a very comfortable learning environment.

🌺 I loved this program! When I went into the training, I felt like a novice. As a personal trainer, we are not trained in any of the conditions that Tracy covered. So much of what Tracy covered, was completely new to me. However, when she went over how people describe their symptoms, I realized how many of clients actually deal with these issues. Knowing enough to describe to them what is going on and, most importantly, who they should go to see to help them with their issues was worth coming to the training by itself.

🌺 Tracy is a natural leader & mentor in the field of women’s pelvic health. She encourages participation, values opinions and provides constructive feedback. This course was a unique approach to learning filled, with support & humor.

🌺 The Mentoring Day was such a highlight in my continuing education journey. I loved how open our conversations were, and the priority on examining the way we work with our clients/patients in our respective roles.

🌺 I wasn’t sure what to expect when I signed up for this course. Having practiced PT for over 20 years, and having always opted for courses that fulfilled CEU’s, this course was presented in a totally different format. But having just opened a business, and knowing how successful and collaboratively-minded Tracy is in the field of PT, I felt it was a course that would help provide answers to more direct questions I had regarding treatment approach and business challenges. The mentoring format of the course was so helpful in addressing my needs (all questions were addressed), and the small group offered such an amazing opportunity to collaborate with other health care professionals working in the same niche. Excellent course overall – highly recommend!

🌺 Tracy has so much knowledge to offer and a genuine desire to educate. It is clear that she is passionate about what she does! Tracy is an invaluable resource and attending a mentoring day with her was an incredible experience. Learning from Tracy is an opportunity that should not be missed!

🌺 I highly recommend this course to any women’s health and/or postnatal fitness professionals that want to spend the day picking the brain of the top women’s health PT. A truly one of a kind experience…can not recommend enough.

🌺 I loved the small group setting! We were able to really dive deep into questions and issues that people were facing. Tracy was SO great at checking in to make sure ALL of our questions were answered and that each person was getting what we wanted out of the program.

🌺 It was just such a pleasure, and I’m so grateful to Tracy for bridging the gap between Pelvic PTs and fitness pros. I think opening conversations between these two professions is very important. I often find programs that interest me, but they are limited to PTs, so I’m so thankful Tracy has opened this door for us.

🌺 I am so glad I participated in the Women’s Pelvic Health Mastermind and Mentoring Day! I left empowered and full of knowledge on pelvic floor issues, diastesis recti, pre and postnatal fitness, and even got hands on experience. Tracy was wonderful, knowledgeable, and passionate about what she does! We had the opportunity to ask ANY questions on any women’s health topics. What a great opportunity!

🌺 Not your typical class!  The group is small and setting casual which allows for open and honest questions without fear of judgement.  As a PT student with some experience in Pelvic Health I enjoyed being in the company of other PT’s and fitness professionals who provided different viewpoints and wisdom you don’t get in a regular CEU class.  A great bridge for anyone thinking about getting into Women’s Health but may not be ready for PF1. Truly a great learning experience!

🌺 Tracy did a great job! I loved the small group setting. It made the topics we discussed comfortable and approachable. Being able to see Tracy do a live demo of a pelvic floor examination was very beneficial. I would highly recommend the Mastermind & Mentoring day to anyone that works with women whether it’s in fitness or healthcare.

🌺 I can take this stuff directly to my next client which is a great feeling. I feel more confidence talking about pelvic floor with my clients.

🌺 I wasn’t expecting to dig in negative past experience with strangers and it changed my perception of my attitude towards my present struggles and it helped me understand my personal fears and insecurities.

🌺 Tracy, thank you, thank you, thank you! Your love for all things pelvic floor is contagious and inspiring. I was honored to be able to spend this time with you and the other women in the room and learn from you. I left there more excited about helping women feel their best, motivated to continue my journey in this pelvic health field, and just grateful to be around other people who love what they do!

Dinner is a somewhat casual event. Don’t worry about looking too formal! Business casual is appropriate. Dress like you would for a dinner with a few friends!

What is required when modeling for a Pelvic Guru demo?

As part of the pelvic floor exam demo: At one point in the day, I’ll have you lying down on a massage table (undressed from waist down under a sheet). I will go over external vulvar anatomy and then show what I do for an internal pelvic floor muscle assessment and prolapse assessment. If we see anything in particular, we will share it and discuss (always with kindness). Some other demos maybe if the abdominal wall for diastasis or exercise demos.
