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!”

FAQs

What is the refund and cancelation policy?

If you’re unable to attend the course you purchased, you can also transfer to the same course offered later in the year (if available) for a $25 fee. Course transfers need to be done at the time of request and must be directly into a course that already exists . Transfers must happen within 1 year of the dates of the course that participant is transferring out of. There is a $50 transfer fee to transfer to a different course (and price variations between the two courses may need to be addressed). Course transfers need to be done at the time of request and must be directly into a course that already exists. If the course does not reach a minimum number of students up to 30 days before the course, the course may be canceled, and a full refund in the amount of the course ticket will be provided.

Will I get CEUs or a certificate?

Pelvic Guru Academy applies for PT/PTA CEU credits for each course we host in the state where the course is taking place. We will make a note at the top of the course registration page once CEUs have been approved for each course. If you are coming from another state, please check with  your state on reciprocity for CEUs.

What should I wear and how will labs run for Female Athlete courses?

It is suggested that you wear clothing you can exercise in; tight clothing like shorts and a tight singlet or sports crop top will help for observation during practicals. While  all the practical components are optional, the beauty of the method Antony teaches is that everything is scalable meaning all the exercises can be adjusted to suit your level of fitness and accommodate any physical restrictions you have to exercise.

If you have additional questions, please contact courses@pelvicguru.com for more information.
