Day one of the two-day Women’s Health and Fitness Summit at Crown Conference Centre, Melbourne, has come to an end after kicking off with Scottish comedian and women’s health physio Elaine Miller, and concluding with a mouth-watering cocktail party.
Today’s educational sessions included Jenny Burrell exploring post-natal core assessment with a focus on holistic prescription for diastasis healing and C-section recovery. While Robin Kerr (who has been working with the Real Madrid soccer/football team) addressed pelvic floor separation and integration, blowing the minds of attendees by introducing revolutionary concepts of transegrity and machanotransduction (remember, you heard these terms there, first!). While group ex and industry icon Marietta Mehanni clarified the distinction between the “core” and “abdominals”.
Founded by Michelle “Mish” Wright (also the founder of Mishfit and Mishfit Eveolution – launched at this event), this year’s event is virtually unrecognisable from the compact one-day event delivered last year at the University of Footscray (VIC). Transforming into a prestigious two-day conference, held at the luxurious Crown Conference Centre in the elite Crown complex at Southbank (VIC), the 2015 event is specifically designed to encourage attendees to fully enjoy the surrounding shopping and dining opportunities that Melbourne has on offer.
The second annual event left delegates and trade show exhibitors feeling inspired, educated and empowered. WNiF’s own editor Analee Matthews was the official MC at the opening ceremony. She said of the event:
“It’s a very special and unique event. And a powerful event because it provides a very open, honest and frank dialogue about women’s health issues.”
Attracting personal trainers, group exercise and mind body instructors, physiotherapists, chiropractors, nutritionists and dietitans, this event provides important information for health professionals to improve the results they obtain when working with female clients.
Day two kicks off at 7am with a free yoga session. Passes are still available for purchase to attend day two.
