Show Notes

Most of us don’t relate pelvic floor therapy to sport performance, but we are here today to chat with Beth Halford, Owner of KW Pelvic Health about the importance of Pelvic Floor Health when it comes to sports, performance and overall health.

Like many of our bad ass Moms at LP, Beth is an amazing role model for her two young children and is crushing it in her career running her own Pelvic Floor Therapy Clinic...And not to mention she has quite the resume of athletic accomplishments...

  • Former captain of the McMaster University women’s swimming team.
  • 3x Boston marathon (2015, 2016, 2019) 
  • 3x Ironman 70.3 World Championships  (2014, 2018, 2020). 
  • She has also completed multiple Full Ironmans with a personal best 3rd place finish at Ironman Mont Tremblant in 2019.

On this episode, we help you understand more about your Pelvic Floor (part of deep core muscle group) and whether or not this area of focus could lead you to higher peak performance and overall quality of life?

Hold up gentlemen - yes, this podcast is still for you.
