New Course Release: The Female Athlete
Have you ever felt that you could be doing better for your female clients? In this new course led by the physio detective, Antony Lo, challenge what you know and learn how to help your clients do even better.
Vicki, an attendee of the Female Athlete course, was unable to lift 16kg (35lbs) without feeling symptoms. She felt hopeless and disclosed many things that were upsetting for her. Her hope and encouragement returned after showing her how to lift that 16kg (35lbs) without any symptoms at all in under a minute. Vicki was shown throughout the course that she can do things she didn't think was possible and finished the weekend with a deadlift of 70kg (155lbs) without any symptoms at all.
Sounds too good to be true? It isn't!
This course will teach you how to be even better than you are and help more people.
Antony is on a mission to change the world for women and truly empower them to do the most they can in order to achieve their dreams and live life they way they want to without fear or hesitation.
