Suspension Training 1

Suspension Training 1

Course Description

Most people only utilise a suspension trainer, such as a TRX, occasionally in their workouts. The advantages of using a suspension trainer include boosting your core strength, stability, and muscular endurance.  In addition, a suspension strap is the most versatile piece of gym equipment, allowing you to perform over 50 exercises. It’s also easily adjustable for many different skill levels.

As opposed to other formats of strength training that you may do in the gym, the exercises you’ll do with a TRX or other suspension tool will have a better carryover to movements that you will do in your day-to-day life.

So you won’t just be moving up and down but also laterally side-to-side as well as twists. It’ll also involve pushing, pulling, and hinging motions which are all movements that will translate well to your daily life.

Learn the fundamentals of suspension training and how to incorporate these into your personal training practice. This course is intended for continued professional development (CPD) for qualified fitness professionals and personal trainers.

What is a Suspension Training Course?

While suspension training is a fairly new training method, its underlying principles are very well founded.

Suspension training utilises particular apparatus such as the TRX or Human Trainer in order to provide a whole-body workout by using gravity as resistance as you perform various exercises.

Repositioning your body or even parts of your body can increase or decrease the level of intensity, and provides a wide array of exercise possibilities. Suspension training can help add variety to your clients’ sessions in the gym, and can also be used for exercise outdoors or at home.

A suspension training course will teach you the fundamentals of this discipline.

What Does The Suspension Training Course Include?

In this suspension training course, you will learn about the basic concepts surrounding suspension training. The foundational movements will be broken down in order to demonstrate and teach you a variety of exercises which can be performed utilising the suspension trainers to target all parts of the body and make sure that exercises are learned with correct form and instruction.

Suspension training has an ability to develop muscle stability and strength while leveraging gravity and your body weight. It provides a total-body workout in a short time, targeting the core-group; contributing to body-wide strength and stability.

Opportunities to Explore with a Suspension Training Certification
