This REP’s accredited suspension training course is the most comprehensive available and will teach you hundreds of upper body, lower body and core exercises using this mode of training for modern functional training. This course is designed for personal trainers and group exercise instructors who want to incorporate the suspension training into their personal trainer sessions and grow their business.
The course format will involve some home study and completion of workbooks prior to coming along, whereupon you will work with a small group of around ten people to take part in a practical day working on a full suspension training frame.
Most coaches and personal trainers agree there are limitations to weight lifting due to a lack of functional and sport specificity exercises. Although weight lifting produces power in the vertical plane and is multi joint it involves little or no multi-directional movement such as ROTATIONAL, DIAGONAL and MULTI- PLANAR (sagittal, frontal, transverse/rotational) movement. Suspension training achieves all these movements and more importantly enables the introduction of Fundamental movement for all ages and abilities from general fitness for everyday life to extreme/sport specific activities such as a high jumper (which is single leg explosive jump, with rotational and diagonal movements) and getting in or out of a car (which is a single leg squat with rotation).
