about gemma

 Hi, I’m Gemma! Founder of Generation Move.

I want to share with you why we at GM think movement, nutrition, and self care are key to your happiness and your family’s.

We all only have one life with one goal: to make the best of it no matter what that looks like to you.

That means our behaviours, habits and lifestyle affects the one life our children have.

We want you to be strong and fit so you can play now, and do the same for grandchildren later.

We want you to feel good, confident so that your love for life and yourself filters down to your children.

It’s difficult to do that if you are physically or mentally damaged. It’s difficult if your body has had difficulty healing. Whether that be a diastasis recti, pelvic floor dysfunction or pain in general.

It’s time to bounce back!

Our online courses and live classes are designed to reboot your movement patterns. With slow and controlled exercises you will begin to switch on muscles that took a holiday a long time ago.

You will learn how these movements can help heal a diastasis, pelvic floor dysfunction and reduce pain -all things that prevent mummies from moving and giving their all to their to their kids.

And once you have healed we will help guide you back into more intense exercise safely.

👩‍🚒 My toughest audience for pelvic floor recovery has got to be firefighters. These amazing women have to come back to work firefit, ready to push themselves to their limits, lift heavy and potentially not be near a toilet for hours at a time. .
.
👩🏽‍🚒 You might think I must have some “oooganami”up my sleeve to help these amazing women. But actually what I often found was due to their high levels of fitness and stress their pelvic floor was too tight and therefore too tired to work properly. .
.
👩🏾‍🚒They had also learnt lots of compensatory patterns to deal with high intensity workload. .
.
👩🏻‍🚒 So helping these women boiled down to going back to basics. I talk about what this involves in my newsletter this week. And you don’t have to have such an active job for this to be relevant to you. In fact it’s for everyone. If you would like a copy, pop me a DM and I can tell you how you can sign up. 🔥 .

🪑 Women who suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction where found to SIT 19% more than those who didn’t suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction!!!
.
.
🪑This was a study carried out by Jerez-Roig et al suggesting that if you sit more you are more likely to experience some sort of pelvic floor dysfunction. .
.
🪑This makes perfect sense to me. When we sit on chairs we tend to slouch (ok, but not for long periods), tuck our pelvis under (so pelvic floor cannot be at its optimum length), alter our breathing mechanics (the pelvic floor works in tandem with breathing) and affects the muscles surrounding our pelvis (where the pelvic floor is housed).
.
.
🪑So sitting is a daily habit that if we change up, reduce or do differently can have an amazing impact on pelvic floor health. .
.
🪑I talk about sitting amongst other daily life hacks in my new FREE eBook. You are welcome to have it. Just pop me a DM and I’ll send it out to you. 💛⬇️💛

😁 The exciting thing about the way I teach pelvic floor exercises is that you can try some of the movements even whilst brushing your teeth!
.
.
😁 Just trying a different standing stance whilst cleaning your pearly whites can affect the health of your pelvic floor! How cool is that?! .
.
😁I know you may think thats a bit “out there” but it isn’t when you understand muscles, joints and how they move. Your feet are attached to your legs which are attached to your pelvis (where your pelvic floor is housed) so of course how you stand can impact the tension of your pelvic floor!! 😲 .
.
😁 If you would like to know more about how your daily habits can affect pelvic floor dysfunction then I have a
FREE eBook that gives you 8 daily life habit hacks for pelvic floor happiness. Just DM me or type in the comments below that you’d like a copy and I’ll get you sorted! Can’t wait to hear from you!

👚The ☀️ is out. I love hanging my washing outside. And it’s GREAT for PELVIC FLOOR health if you know how. .
.
🩳 I’m a great believer that movement can really help pelvic floor function so rehab exercises are fantastic. But we only do these 20-30mins a day (if that if we’re honest). But we do daily life ALL day. .
.
👚So if we can make our daily life moves great for pelvic floor function then we’re winning. .
.
🩳Here I am hanging out my washing. And I’m doing it in a way that’s benefits my pelvic floor. P.S Pardon the smalls! 😆
.
👚Want to know more then DM me I’d love to answer your questions. PLUS send me a message if you would like my FREE eBook in other tips and tricks that can change up your daily life fit for pelvic floor function. I’d be really excited to show you!

🔥When Covid-19 struck many of us decided 2020 was just a year to get through and ditch. .
.
🔥I think it’s a wake up call to so many wrongs in the world. It’s the world screaming that we are killing it and the way we treat each other is a part of that assassination. .
.
🔥I was quieter than usual last week but not as quiet as I should have been. Two weeks ago I hit a rock & couldn’t work out why I couldn’t get myself out of a fog. I realised it was the news & Covid. So I stopped watching the news for a break & enjoy this time with the kids. When I did put my head above the precipice I’d missed something BIG - the murder of George Floyd. I reacted with a black square to show solidarity but I didn’t think how my posts were linked to what I felt. I was slow off the mark. For this I’m sorry as it’s truly important to me. .
.
🔥So here are my thoughts:
- I am anti-racist. I go by individual qualities. This was ingrained through my first experience of racism at age 6. My Dad was badly beaten up in the 80’s by a group of skin heads whilst my Dad was cleaning racist graffiti off a wall. I remember my parents explaining what it all meant. I remember being confused and horrified. - But having these values has blindsided me. I thought it was enough to be anti-racist & challenge when faced with it (when I felt safe). But it isn’t. To live my values I have to be actively anti-racist, be aware and challenge white privileged and supremacy. This comes in forms I haven’t thought about before and will be learning. - An example: one of my bestest mates is black. I’m incredibly lucky that I also work with her. For 14 years we’ve had a lot of giggles and cries. Last week we had the deepest conversation ever. She told me she’s been really lucky and has either not experienced much racism or she’s just never noticed. She then said “if anything being black & female has pushed me forward in our job”.......I think it hit us both like lightening. My lovely friend thought she’d been offered various tasks not because she was shit hot at her job but because she was black & female. And there was white privilege staring us both in the face. .
.

😲 Here are some daily life shenanigans that just by changing how you do them could impact your pelvic floor. .
.
😲I know right! How cool is that? You might be thinking no Gemma that is not cool 😭I could be harming myself without even knowing it. Well let’s reframe that! It’s cool because it means just by doing something slightly differently whilst you do life can help improve pelvic floor dysfunction. That’s what’s super cool! .
.
😲If you find this intriguing pop me a DM l’d love to know what you think!

🤔How you move during the day can affect the health of your pelvic floor. .
.
🤔Lockdown may have changed what you currently do in your daily life but have a think about what that looks like for you. .
.
1. What was daily life like pre-Covid 19 and how did you feel about your pelvic floor
2. What does daily life look like for you now and has your pelvic floor improved, stayed the same or got worse?
.
.
🤔The types of things to notice is how much do you sit 🪑?, how do you sit 🧘‍♂️?, how do you stand 🦩? What bag do you use 💼?, what arm do you carry it with 💪? What do you carry🤱? How do you lift🏋🏾? What’s your stress like🤯? What exercise do you do🏂?
.
.
🤔All these things and so much more can affect how your body functions and because your pelvis is at the centre of all our movements,it’s a big deal. .
.
❓Has the symptoms of your pelvic floor improved, stayed the same or got worse since lockdown? And do you ever think that your daily life habits could have such a big impact? Let me know in the comments below and if you would like to know more then send a DM I’d love to help. .

🌪Technically it’s half term. But what does that mean any more?
.
.
🌪My kids are finally getting agitated with cabin fever and “not you again” blues. They are done with playing with each other. .
.
🌪I’m so proud of them they’ve been so good natured and easy going but it’s finally hit and they are getting on each other’s nerves. .
.
🌪Plus I’ve run out of funky ideas to entertain them. What have you done with your kids? Any cool projects? How have you navigated 1 on 1 time when they’re bored of you as well? I’d love to know and I’d love to hear your ideas!!!...... please 😬

🐝 What a great day for my Bee t-shirt to arrive on World Bee day no less 🌻 .
.
🐝 FUN BEE FACTS
.
🌻to produce 1kg of honey bees fly the equivalent of 3x around the world in air miles. .
.
🌻Bees love blue and love cluster plants like lavender and rosemary (my lavender is going great guns but unfortunately I killed the rosemary - I do not have green fingers).
.
🌻Bees don’t want to sting you because if they do they die. .
.
🐝In all seriousness the human being needs bees to survive. They are pollinators and without them we wouldn’t have many of the crops we need for food. In fact 90% of leading global crop types are visited by bees!!!

Being a Mum I often feel I haven’t a clue what I’m doing and am winging it!
.
.
But we never give ourselves credit for the stuff we do know and do get right for our little ones. .
.
This quote in my book of keep calm for mums made me laugh so I thought I’d share. .
.
Whatever stage of mumhood you’re at you pretty much know everything to keep your kids right!

Choosing the path less travelled affects your pelvic floor. .
.
You think I’m mad? Here’s the low down. Your feet have 26 bones and 33 joints!! Joints need to move to stay healthy. How much movement do you think your feet get if they are always in inflexible, solid shoes and always walking on flat ground?
.
.
What the feet are capable of dictates how the rest of the leg moves which guess what? Your leg attaches into the pelvis and shares some of the same attachment points as the Pelvic Floor!!!
.
.
Woaaahhhh! The wholebody is connected and is so cool 😎.
.
.
So that’s why I 1) wear barefoot shoes @vibramfivefingersuk and 2) I walk on the ground less travelled as both these things will undulate my feet, keep the joints moving and therefore be kind to my pelvic floor!!
.
.
What did you think about that? Is that surprising to you? Have a question? Comment below or DM me. I’d 💓 to hear from you. .

😆 My wholebody simply can’t wait for this table. I’m talking pelvic floor, hips, hamstrings, back, neck shoulders even ankles. All of these body parts can not wait. .
.
😆This picture shows the gradual process of my £12 table I purchased from eBay being turned into my new ground living table. .
.
😆This means that the table will be low. It means that we will have to sit on the floor or supported with bolsters / balls / cushions to be at the table. It means that our time in chairs will be less. .
.
😆Sitting on CHAIRS for long periods of time can have a detrimental affect in our body including the pelvic floor. .
.
😆What do you think about this? Do you sit for long periods and would you like to know more about how my new table will help? Comment below or send me a DM!
