  • Study Method: Our CPD course in Suspension Training takes place in person with our tutoring team and will take the form of a workshop. You’ll work through modules face-to-face and have a practical assessment.

Assessment: The circuit training CPD course ends with a 90-minute long observational assessment where you will be tasked with demonstrating your knowledge of suspension training. This is done through the practical delivery of a suspended movement training session. 

Our Suspension Trainer CPD course will teach you everything you need to know to become a suspended movement instructor, centring on how to plan effective sessions for your clients. During the workshop, you’ll cover:

The History and Diversity of Suspension Training

You’ll learn about how suspension training has developed over time and what’s contributed to its evolution and increased popularity. This includes learning the different types of suspension training and the systems involved such as rigging the equipment safely.

The Benefits of Suspension Training

In your workshop group, you’ll look at the benefits of suspended movement as a training exercise and the practical applications that can be used to reach different goals from your clients.

Suspended Movement Exercises

This three-hour part of the workshop will teach you specialised movements and how to identify and perform them in an effective way. This will cover:

  • Push movements
  • Pull movements
  • Core driven exercises
  • Cardio driven movements

Suspension Training Session Planning 

Here we’ll teach you how to combine everything you’ve learned, in order to write a suspension training session plan that includes different stages at an accurate pace. You’ll also cover planning a warm-up, the main body of suspension training, and a cool-down routine. 

The course will also cover how to identify and prepare aims for each session using different cardio and resistance-based exercises for a dynamic workout.

If you complete your Suspension Trainer CPD course after completing your Level 2 Fitness Instructor course you can structure classes and group sessions around this style of training. 

Predominantly you would work in a gym or fitness centre that has this equipment or have your own independent sessions!

Getting qualified as a PT with our Level 3 Personal Trainer course will mean you can work with individuals and design bespoke programmes centred around suspended movement exercises.

You can work in more environments and you can charge much more for individualised training for clients. 

On the day of your attendance, the skills and knowledge you acquire will be demonstrated in front of a qualified tutor and assessor who will be leading your training. 

Should any of our students fail, they are more than welcome to come back and complete the course and assessment, using their FREE unlimited resits. 

Aside from being aged 16 years or older, students must hold a Level 2 Fitness Instructor qualification to enrol on this course.

Keeping the cost of our courses as low as possible means we can stay dedicated to training the next generation of fitness professionals. As we believe the fitness sector should be accessible for everyone, our focus is on providing quality training through affordable courses.

There also aren’t any hidden extra fees for administration, examinations, or certificate costs. This means the ‘all-in’ prices on our course pages are exactly what you’ll pay! 

As our competitive course prices are influenced by our assessment centre and gym partnerships, we don’t charge extra for venue hire.

Yes, just like the rest of our CPD fitness courses, the Suspension Training CPD is recognised by PD Approval!

Invaluable practical experience!

Before OriGym Ramnik was facing redundancy after a 10-year career. With an existing interest in health and fitness, Ramnik knew a role helping others to reach their goals would suit his personality and ambition. Searching online, he signed up to the Level 2 Gym Instructor and Level 3 Personal Trainer course. 

I absolutely made the right decision to choose OriGym! I’m very grateful for their continued support and their amazing tutors. They are really encouraging, helping to build your confidence to succeed. OriGym’s approach to flexibility encouraged me to study in my own time through online assessments and tutorials. Perfect for a busy parent juggling responsibilities.

My career since has gone from strength to strength. I set up my own brand whilst studying, creating a home-based studio where I train my clients. I also work as a Group Fitness Instructor, have set up my own HIIT fitness event and work with local academies encouraging children to enjoy exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle.
