Why Should I Do This Seminar?

Firstly, I want to point out that it is RARE that I tell someone they have to stop training for anything!

  • This seminar is about how to protect your core and pelvic floor, especially if you are a woman!
  • I have seen and helped women who have had babies and those who haven't - this problem is not well known because it is socially awkward but wee need to educate everyone - female athletes, their coaches and males too!
  • You want to come to this seminar because you know you should spend your precious spare time working on your weaknesses. You want to know how to develop the strength and control you need to ensure you minimize the risk of injury as much as possible. You want to know WHAT TO DO if you have a prolapse or stress urinary incontinence.
  • There will be A LOT of educational material here...but in the end, it is about how to exercise and choose options safely.
  • The beauty of this particular seminar is that we will make you examine your beliefs...and once they have be proven by fire (testing) or lie in tatters, we will show you the most effective way for you to develop the control and mastery over your core and pelvic floor so you can progress towards your CrossFit (or any other) goals.

Who is this for?

  • Anyone and everyone who does exercise, particularly for CrossFit Athletes and coaches
  • All health and fitness professionals are welcome (Physios, Chiros, Osteos, Massage Therapists, Personal Trainers, Coaches, etc)
  • ANYONE who wants to learn more about core stability and the pelvic floor, exercising with prolapse and stress urinary incontinence

What is different to other seminars?

In this seminar, Danielle will be educating us on the pelvic floor and the variety of problems you need to know about. Antony will be outlining how you as an athlete, coach or health professional can assess and take action for your core and pelvic floor - the more you understand about yourself and how your upper body works, the better able you are to take care of yourself and others.

In other seminars, they show you how to do "core and pelvic floor" 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, often immediately!

Antony and his team are 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.

  • 30mins lunch break (Bring your own food)
  • Lots of practical information - come prepared to exercise and sweat a bit!

How much does this all cost?

  • $77 (usually $165) - all proceeds go towards the expenses for putting these seminars on. We decided to halve the price due to the situation in regional QLD and Mackay - we don't want you to miss out on this VITAL INFORMATION. If anyone wants to come but can't afford it, please contact us.

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
2. I will be available to see people from 2.30pm after the seminar. 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 "Physio - Mackay" option and go from there.
3. There will be a WOD at CrossFit Mackay. Please contact Walter at CrossFit Mackay if you would like to do the WOD or Olympic Lifting in the morning.
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 at 11.30am for 30mins.
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 50612. Please like our social media...

    Hi Antony,

    My name is Alex Roman, I’m the owner of CrossFit North Gong in Wollongong. Firstly congratulations on the good work you’re doing with your blog and regular emails. Some really good content. Thank you. Just wanted to put it out there if you happen to be passing through this part of NSW any time soon it would be awesome to have you come present at our gym. We could get 3 or 4 other CF gyms involved as well.

    Kind regards, Alex.

    1. Thanks Alex. I would be happy to come down to Wollongong again. It is just a matter of finding a date, choosing a length of time and topic and booking it in. I will send you an email with some details.
