What is different to other seminars?

In this seminar, Antony will be outlining how you as an athlete, coach or health professional can assess and take action for your body - the more you understand about yourself and how your body works, the better able you are to take care of yourself and others.

In other seminars, they show you how to do "core" exercises to protect your back...
...this seminar includes the "why", the "how", as well as the principles of rehabilitation that Antony uses - the key difference is RESULTS - we can prove our way works!

Antony is only interested in solutions that work. We believe that for most things, you can tell after just 30secs whether something will help or not...we will show you how.

CrossFit Canberra LogoAbout CrossFit Canberra

CrossFit Canberra is a friendly, family owned gym that provides individual and group fitness classes in two fantastic locations, Mitchell and Fyshwick. At CrossFit Canberra, we consider ourselves one big family with a community focused attitude towards training. We cater to a variety of fitness levels from beginners just starting out in the fitness world, through to experienced athletes who are looking for that extra edge in their training.We incorporate a variety of functional movements into our daily programming to give you skills across multiple physical domains to achieve a well-rounded and inclusive style of fitness. Our programming includes a large variety of different training methods including but not limited to Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting, gymnastics, kettlebell training, running, rowing, swimming, strongman and military style training.The goal is to maximise your General Physical Preparedness measured across 10 general physical domains defined by CrossFit – cardio respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, co-ordination, agility, balance and accuracy.Put simply, our aim is to get you to be the best physical version of yourself in order to tackle whatever life throws at you! Whether that includes making day-to-day tasks easier, training for specific occupational requirements, or competing in your chosen sport.

Regardless of your current fitness level, CrossFit Canberra is for everyone. We tailor our program to you, by following three simple principles:

  1.  Mechanics: be brilliant at the basics, you always need to walk before you can run.
  2.  Consistency: once you have the basics down pat we increase the number of reps performed over time till you can do a particular movement in your sleep.
  3.  Intensity: once you have got 1 &2 covered, we ramp up the volume and start doing things at speed to produce power – which equals results!

Fitness in 100 words:

 “Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.”

 – Greg Glassman, Founder of CrossFit Inc.



Important Information For the Seminar:

1. There is assumed knowledge - this you tube video is the first 40mins of my old seminars - if you can watch it (a slide show presentation), it will be helpful. I am working on improving it to make it easier to watch in the future 🙂 http://youtu.be/n3a3naVTxIs - i have a longer version which you can get downloads for on the home page.
2. I will be available to see people that weekend. It is $90/30mins. You can book 30, 60 or 90mins with me. All bookings are through www.physiodetective.com/bookings- read it, go to the online diary and make yourself a login. Then just choose the options with "Canberra" and go from there.
3. There may be a WOD at 8am to start the seminar. Whilst this is optional, I do recommend that you come to do it because it will let us see how you move and we can begin to pick out the people who will be good models!
4. Please be prepared to be observed. That usually means guys will often have to take their shirt off or at least wear a singlet and shorts. Girls, if you could wear a crop top or singlet with shorts, that would be great - ideally not a bra that covers the spine between your shoulder blades please. Observing other people is the best way to learn...having said that, we won't force anyone to do anything they are not comfortable doing.
5. Lunch will NOT be provided. Please bring any snacks, drinks or supplements you need - there will be breaks during the seminar. Lunch will be from 12pm.
6. A set of colour notes will be provided and there should be pens for everyone. Please come prepared to write notes...there is a lot of information to digest and we have found that writing down the cues that worked for you is a good way of learning and working on your own plan

7. Whilst the seminar strives to address your issues, it does so in a general way. We will do our best to help you with your problems but ultimately, we can't go into as much detail as a full assessment - please be understanding about that.

8. Participation is the best way to learn. I will be calling for volunteers regularly so please be ready! I usually try to ask everyone to volunteer

9. We will be taking photos and videos during the seminar. If you do not want to be photographed or videoed, please let us know. We plan to use these to help promote future seminars and educate people via my blog. Please be assured that I don't ever ridicule people or their form but often phrase it as "Here is John Smith demonstrating "

10. If you have any dietary needs, please let me know by emailing me at antonylo@myphysios.com.au.

11. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at antonylo@myphysios.com.au  or SMS me at 0410 440 506
