Suspension training equipment has seen its popularity skyrocket in recent years. It is a safer way to activate more muscle fibres, whilst engaging your core and creating a greater range of motion when performing an exercise than utilising machines. This helps to improve client balance, strength, flexibility and joint stability.

As suspended movement becomes an increasingly popular and accessible workout, the demand for qualified instructors is at an all-time high. However, to become an effective suspended movement instructor you’ll need to develop a range of abilities covering session planning, providing demonstrations and leading clients. During this intensive one-day CPD workshop, you’ll cover topics including:
In the first module, you’ll learn about the history of suspended movement and how it evolved into a popular training method, exploring the types of suspension training systems available, understanding rigging and how to set up equipment safely.
As a workshop group, you’ll discover and discuss the benefits of suspended movement as a training exercise and the practical applications of suspension training to help different types of clients achieve their goals.
This three-hour practical workshop will see you learning how to identify, perform and successfully demonstrate a wide range of suspended movement exercises covering push, pull, core and cardio driven movements.
In this module, you’ll pull everything you’ve learnt so far together to write a suspension training session plan, including a warm-up, main session and cool-down. You’ll also identify and prepare aims for each session and incorporate cardio and resistance based exercise for a dynamic workout.
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 through practical delivery of a suspended movement training session that is fun, motivational, safe and effective.
This CPD course is delivered on one full day, during a face-to-face workshop at one of our twelve nationwide venues.
