REPs Suspension Training Course – Discovery UK

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).

Suspension Training Course Content:
  • Equipment set up and use
  • Benefits of Suspension Training
  • How to adjust the resistance and stability of exercises
  • Exercise Technique
  • Class Structure
  • Progressions and regressions of exercises for all fitness levels
  • Cueing and techniques for correcting common faults

How to Grow Your Fitness and Personal Training Business Discovery Learning

Every personal trainer dreams of having a thriving business, with a solid client base of satisfied customers who show visible results from their fitness training and a reputation for excellence. Whether you’re just starting out as a fitness trainer, or would like to grow your client base and possibly expand your business to include a gym or health-related enterprise, here are some strategies to take your business to the next level.

Is your business on the right track?

With tough times in the economy at present, it’s important to be very realistic about the performance of your business. On the one hand, you should remember that clients are less likely to spend on non-essential purchases during difficult periods, and unfortunately fitness often falls into that category.

From another perspective, you should keep your goals foremost in your mind and not give up hope just because challenges exist – remember that some of the world’s most successful business people started their companies during tough times.

Keeping Your Fitness Business Competitive

• To stay competitive in the current economy, one of the best strategies is to give your clients plenty of value for money. Fortunately, as a personal trainer you have something that adds value almost immediately – your time and energy.

• If you give your clients the best possible advice and training, and keep your prices competitive, you’ll not only satisfy your existing client base but also benefit from referrals. Take a long term view of your business and remember that a few new clients each week will make a big difference to your income a year from now.

• Finally, don’t forget to keep records of all your income and expenses and if necessary, consult a business advisor who will be able to give you in-depth advice and help with your strategy moving forward. With motivation, hard work, and a good plan in place, your fitness business should grow from strength to strength.
