As qualified instructors on suspension training it allows be.fit to offer personal training clients a wider variety of creative moves in one-to-one sessions.
So what is suspension training?
Using a piece of equipment called a TRX, we offer clients the ability to explore functional training, allowing your body to be trained in a way more conventional equipment is unable to offer.
This is not to say other exercise equipment doesn’t have its place in the fitness world, it’s more about finding new and different ways to challenge the body and keep our clients on their toes.
What if I need to do cardio work as well as resistance work in one session?
So you might be thinking that suspension training is only for resistance and strength based work…well you’d be wrong. Suspension training equipment offers us as trainers the ability to push your cardiovascular system with jumps and moves that get your heart racing. If anything you’ll no doubt find these moves more challenging than their counterparts performed on the floor alone!
What if I need a one-to-one session at my house?
One of the biggest selling points of owning or using suspension equipment is that it can be pretty much anchored anywhere. The anchor point needs to be secure and strong enough but even a door (using a door anchor) allows you to be trained indoors. Trees, lampposts, play equipment are all great anchor points outdoors, to name but a few, making it extremely transportable.
Why do we love suspension training?
We believe one of its great ‘powers’ is the continuous workout your core gets. Targeting stabilizing and mobilizing muscles as well as the abdominal area in pretty much every move, you’ll feel huge improvements in your core strength, balance and co-ordination. Great if these are some of your key goals.
As the moves are not carried out in isolation it’s also possible to shorten your workout time without compromising on the moves achieved.
Can anyone do suspension training?
Whilst it can be used for any fitness level, it is preferable to have a fair level of fitness ability. With the right instruction from qualified instructors to avoid injury and provide the right type of exercises for your level, you’ll be falling in love with suspension training after 1 session!It also allows people with say a knee injury, to use the handles as an anchor point to release some of the pressure from those particular joints.
