The Training Icon
Your journey to a stronger and healthier pelvic floor starts here.
The your leva app prompts you to check your position. Stand up and get comfortable. You will need to stay in this position for the duration of the training session (2 1/2 minutes) to get an accurate score.
When you tap on the Start button, you start the five session training module. Each session begins with a 3 second countdown to ‘Get Ready to Kegel’. Next you will hold your best Kegel for 15 seconds (Hold Your Kegel screen), followed by 15 seconds of rest (Rest screen). It’s not as easy as it looks; you will need the rest for your next strong Kegel.
Don’t worry if you can’t hold your Kegel for the entire 15 seconds. At the beginning of training, most women can’t. It is important to hold it as best as you can. This is an important part of your score. Your endurance will improve with your effort, training, and time.
Note: If you need to stop training at anytime before the end of the 5 intervals, press Stop. Do not press the Home button on your device to exit your workout. If you press on the Home button on your device your scores will not be saved in History or the database that stores your scores for future reference.
After Session 5 and the last ‘Hold Your Kegel’ screen, the FINISHED! screen will show your last score.
When the Next button is tapped, you will receive your final score. The FINAL SCORE! screen includes the scores from all five sessions. Tap Next again to return to the home screen.
If you are up to it and your physician agrees, you can do more than one training module at a time. Results improve with frequent use.*
