What people are saying:

The Level 2 Female Athlete course was a phenomenal growth experience! It pushed me in obvious and subtle ways that I didn't know I needed. It was uncomfortable at times, but 100% worth it. Having the chance to learn from other professionals (Antony, the incredible Assistants & all fellow attendees) is truly priceless. If you work with women and want to improve your skills, this course is for you!
My whole career has been making sure that patients were doing things the "correct way". Now I know that each person may have their own "correct way". Thanks for teaching me how to think outside the box, let alone, outside the textbook.  
Antony's goal in The Female Athlete is to allow the student to learn without being told how to learn. The ultimate result is a very powerful and empowered learning experience! I have a renewed passion and drive to continue to help my clients and continue my personal journey to health. This course provides hope!

What you will learn:

The Female Athlete Course – Level 1 has always had 3 key objectives:
  • To raise awareness of women’s pelvic health issues in women who want to use moderate to high intensity means to achieve their goals
  • To raise awareness of how exercise can be used to help women with pelvic heath issues (and diastasis).
  • 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 and add the following: 
  • Experience exercise in a group setting at moderate to high intensity
  • To share and discuss the issues we are facing with our clients
  • To have the key principles from Level 1 reviewed and the latest evidence about SUI/POP/DRAM/antenatal and postnatal conditions as it relates to female athletes/exercise.
  • To learn key principles of assessment, management, and exercise
  • To develop a framework to integrate these principles to begin making changes to participants’ interactions with their clients.
  • To observe, audit and discuss 2 consultations during the weekend
  • To develop practical ways of integrating previous education with current evidence
  • To utilize a reflection sheet in relation to case studies to help participants continue to change in their interactions with their clientsTo develop new professional relationships and reinforce existing ones

More accolades:

I learned a lot through Level 2. I'm still thinking about a lot of this a month after it ended. I also jumped in head first when I volunteered to do the assessment. It was uncomfortable to watch myself after, see and hear mistakes I made, hear feedback from the client, but it all helped me grow and I value it a great deal. I appreciated the feedback from the group very much too. 
As a pelvic floor therapist, I was in a rut of being "stuck in the pelvic floor". I wanted to get out of the pelvic floor and into more movement, and this class definitely brought me back to that. I did orthopedic therapy before getting into pelvic floor therapy, and have always try to incorporate exercise when appropriate during my sessions, but fear that if I don't work on specific pelvic floor issues that their symptoms won't completely resolve. This course challenged that belief and made me realize that symptoms can resolve just from "doing things different". Super fun to make a mental switch! I definitely recommend this course!
I am a rule follower by nature and this course really made me expand my though process and my variability. I loved going back during the week and just "trying" with people. I loved being challenged to get outside my box and to really assess my own thoughts and biases and try to just see them as they were...personal biases but not necessarily rules. Despite generally needing in-person courses to keep me engaged, this one really allowed me to be more engaged than I thought I'd be with the Mentimeter app and practical portions of the course too. Loved hearing from Fit pros and from other PTs. Loved hearing from the various TA's and their backgrounds. Only thing that would have made it better was to take a pic with Antony and the group in person :)
So many from around the globe have joined Antony in his mission! 

A participatory deep dive into clinical reasoning

This course is created to be participatory and has a list of equipment needed for each section of video. To get the most out of this experience, it's highly recommend that you have space, have on workout clothes, have the equipment ready, have a partner available (someone who has also purchased the course on their own, or someone who is NOT a health or fitness professional) who is willing to let you assess them for some of the practical sessions. This course was recorded live-online as a fully interactive online course with lots of Q&A over 4 days. Each of the four videos is approximately 5 hours long and was recorded during that live-online experience.
