HEAT - Pelvic Floor Friendly Fitness for Fat Loss
In the HCR ‘Heat’ programme, we’ve finally nailed exercise for fat loss that is also ‘Pelvic Floor Friendly’! It’s a ‘no-jump’ workout that truly will hit all the fat loss markers and jump start your metabolism and keep you burning calories for hours after the exercise session. Once you have more confidence in your pelvic floor or you’ve gone through the ‘Every Woman’ programme, ‘Heat’ is your next step and we truly take it up a notch or two with a change in music and tempo to truly get you moving, but with a deep respect for your Pelvic Health. Ultimately, IT CAN BE DONE. You can keep both feet on the ground and still have effective fat loss! But we’ve kept the bits of Every Woman that you all love, such as the focused pelvic floor/core work and relaxation ending.

Pre-requisites for Attending?
This class is for women who have some control over their pelvic floor during movement and wish to do some sweaty and toning exercise that does not damage their pelvic floor.
If you do not yet feel in control of your pelvic floor, then attending my Every Woman foundations course (within the group or one-to-one with myself) is the perfect way to build you up to make you strong enough to attend this Heat class.
If you have already attended my Every Woman/Diastasis courses, or perhaps you have come along to one of my pelvic floor and core workshops, then you are definitely suitable for this class. Providing you feel your pelvic floor is safe for low impact movement, you can still ask to join my HEAT classes.
To get the most out of this class I'd highly recommend having a one-to-one session with me where I will:
- teach you how your pelvic floor works
- help you get your breath and abdominal pressure working well during exercise
- perform a functional body assessment before you attend
This is helpful because a fundamental understanding of how your core works helps you manage abdominal pressure during exercise. The price for this session would be £50. However this is not compulsory.
If you have attended one of my courses I will have already provided you with a bag of equipment. However, if you do not own this already, there are some pieces of equipment that you need for this class which you can either buy off me or provide yourself.
These include the following:
|Cost to buy from me|
|A resistance band - flat||£4.00|
|A resistance tube with handles||£9.00|
|A pilates ball||£6.00|
|A small spikey massage ball||£4.00|
|A miniband (band in a small loop)||£4.00|
OR Buy the above complete set including a bag for a discounted price of £21
You'll also need 2 x 2kg Dumbbells (These I cannot provide, but you can purchase in lots of different shops around the £5-10 mark. For example, Argos, Sports Direct, TK Maxx, all the main supermarkets etc.)
Note: you are welcome to use 3kg dumbbells if/when you are stronger.
Bookings will be made on a 5 or 6 week basis and will follow the school half term schedule. Classes are held on Tuesday nights at 8pm at Heene Community Centre in Worthing.
The cost is £10 per session payable upfront per half a term (for example, if there are 6 weeks in that half term, the cost is £60 payable upfront)
