Course Description: 

You’ve completed The Female Athlete Course – Level 1. You loved the material and have been Doing Something Different with your clients. Now you want to take the next step and learn more about how to help your female athletes – from assessment, to the principles which guide how you help your client.

The Female Athlete Course – Level 1 has always had 3 key objectives

  1. To raise awareness of women’s pelvic health issues in women who want to use moderate to high intensity means to achieve their goals
  2. To raise awareness of how exercise can be used to help women with pelvic heath issues (and diastasis).
  3. To raise awareness of our language in a biopsychosocial framework – to reduce fear and promote empowerment of women managing their own issues.

The Female Athlete Course – Level 2 will carry those same 3 key objectives.

What people are saying about Antony Lo’s classes: 

“This in-person training was a game changer for me! I feel much more confident knowing when to progress my female athletes. The concepts were explained and presented well and this trip was an extremely good use of my time and resources. I loved connecting with the other coaches and PTs – all the attendees were kind and approachable which made it a wonderful learning environment!”

“This course challenged my thinking in ways that at first seemed scary and now feel productive and inspiring. I will leave this course challenging my stories, and seeking to “do something different”. I have new goals for myself and my clients and have a renewed focus in the gym. I had many “A-ha!” moments that I think will help me reduce pain and injury in myself, and serve my clients to grow as athletes.”

“We’ve all heard the saying “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you”. I’ve been a PT x 19 years and am happy when a course challenges what I’ve been taught previously and therefore changes the way I then practice going forward. This course did just that! And I loved the patient demos assessing DRA in supine and with activity. The assistants were wonderful- loved having off the cuff discussions with them/ Q&A. Also loved having at least 50% of the class as fitness professionals, it’s so great to come together and learn how to speak the same language. I highly recommend Antony Lo’s course and look forward to learning from his and the team in the future!”
