The Art Greets Science In Motion Class, presents the collaboration between two experienced and evidence based Australian physiotherapists, who have modified and distilled their thought processes and clinical practice to encompass Bio-Psycho-Social principles.

This online course examines current controversies in therapy and the fitness industry and challenges biases and belief systems originating from the heavily entrenched posturo-biomechanical approach.

Concepts such as core stability, mechanical diagnosis and most importantly the why and how of how things actually work (or don't work) are challenged. This is not a “product” aimed at being a part of a compulsory ongoing training system but more of a “jam session” between two very different clinicians, who after reading the research, have come from completely different angles to the same conclusions.

Most importantly they have been able to amalgamate their clinical applications. Designed to be highly clinically relevant, research supported motion and exercise applications are presented, suitable for use the next working day in client populations ranging from persistent pain to athletic conditioning.


Learning Objectives

  • Challenge therapist and fitness professional’s biases and belief systems particularly in relation to entrenched posturo-biomechanical systems, e.g. manual therapy, core stability and systematized exercise prescription
  • Highlight the lack of quality research evidence base for commonly used therapeutic interventions
  • Illuminate the tendency of therapists and fitness professionals to form “Silos”, which possibly limits their therapy and exercise repertoire and outcomes
  • Stimulate the ability of practitioners to challenge themselves rather than accept dogmatic treatment systems
  • Understand the intricacies of retraining the lumbo-pelvic region and the “Deep Motion Systems”, how to connect them to motion based on research, yet not get bogged down in convoluted techniques
  • Learn distilled yet effective exercise and motion based techniques that move the practitioner towards the Bio-Psycho-Social approach, with minimal cognitive dissonance and skill acquisition time
  • Gain the ability to quickly and easily retrain motion targeted at increasing movement repertoire and motion IQ via 3D motion and safe force/loading



All health and fitness professionals including but not limited to physiotherapists (physical therapists), chiropractors, kinesiologists, personal trainers, and athletic therapists.

The instructors
Antony Lo (he/his)
B.App.Sc.(Physio)(USyd)., Master in Manual Therapy (UWA)

Antony Lo is a physiotherapist from Australia and runs The Physio Detective service. He earned his degree from the University of Sydney and has been in practice since 1997.

He completed his post-graduate masters in Manual Therapy (Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy) from the University of Western Australia and commenced his Specialisation training in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy.

He has been involved with treating CrossFit athletes since 2011 and has helped some of the world’s best CrossFitters at the highest levels through to beginners of all ages. He loves and participates in CrossFit and is a strong advocate for the sport. Through participation and through his work as a Physiotherapist at all levels of CrossFit, he has developed a model of treatment that utilises the best from Sports Science, Musculoskeletal/Sports Physiotherapy, Pain Science, and Women’s Health research to provide a realistic holistic model of care balancing the biopsychosocial model of healthcare.

He is NOT an employee of CrossFit, he does not represent or work for them in any way and his views and opinions are entirely his own. He holds a CrossFit level 1 – Trainer Certificate and is a CrossFit Football Coach/Consultant (now CrossFit Sports Specific Application). Antony has a wife and 3 beautiful children in the best city in the world – Sydney, Australia!

Robin Kerr
B.AppSc Phty, Post Grad Cert Pelvic Floor Rehab , Level 2 IOM coach Level 4 B.E.T Pilates, Barefoot Training Specialist

Robin graduated as a physiotherapist from Sydney University in 1985. She has established and been the principal therapist in 4 successful private practices around the world, ranging from the RAAF to Vanuatu, Hong Kong and back to Noosa, Australia.

Early on her clinical focus shifted heavily to the pelvis, low back pain and leg injuries. She has extensive postgraduate biomechanical training in these areas, including gait lab running analysis and has been involved with several elite international and Olympic running related sporting teams. In Hong Kong she established a very successful private practice in which she focused on managing novice to world champion athletes, martial arts movie stars, pelvic floor and lumbo-pelvic pain patients.

Over the last 20 years she has shifted focus to the pelvic floor and persistent pain management, with a preference towards the BPS paradigm and the importance of movement. An avid reader of science research, she currently peer reviews for physiotherapy journals and online research hubs in an attempt to assist physiotherapy to evolve.
