PeriCoach, an innovative product created to help women master the art of the kegel. Kegels are pelvic floor exercises that can help with urinary incontinence as well as sexual response.
A few months ago, the folks at PeriCoach were kind enough to send me one to try out! The instruction manual is well done. The set-up directions are simple and easy to follow.
You download the app and charge up the PeriCoach device. Then you sync it to the phone and follow the start up wizard to calibrate to your ability. You’re ready to go! I started at beginner:
As you squeeze, you can see your progress. It’s so cool. Watching how you’re doing on the screen, makes you want to work all the harder. A great way to challenge yourself. This is a screen shot of one of my early attempts. As you do the kegel, your goal is to get the dot up to 100 percent.
Next you are given time to relax. You keep relaxing until prompted to squeeze again. You do this eight times. It’s so much fun it feels like a game.
After your session, you can see your results. I wasn’t real impressed with my first set (below). That sparked my competitive spirit. I can promise you, my results are lots better now.
There are three levels to the PeriCoach. I’m moving into Level Two, although in some ways Level One seems like plenty of strengthening. I definitely feel my pelvic floor is improving, and I look forward to continued progress!
