Read Reviews


While suspension fitness is a relatively new training method, its underlying principles are incredibly well founded. Suspension training uses particular apparatus such as the TRX or Human Trainer and engages the core while manipulating your bodyweight to create challenging and variable exercises. Using suspension training techniques can help add variety to your clients’ sessions in the gym, but it can also be used outside of the gym environment for exercise outdoors or at home.

This course includes online study and one suspension fitness training day which you can either attend in-person at one of our venues or from the comfort of your own home with our Virtual Training Platform.

This course is recognised by the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) and meets the criteria for official ACSM Approved Provider status.
