What You'll Learn Suspension Training

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. 

suspension training careers

If you complete your Suspension Trainer CPD course after completing your Level 3 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 4 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 3 Fitness Instructor qualification to enrol on this course.

Heather Hacking

Founder of Heather Hacking PT

Fantastically Structured & Well Organised

As a mother of three children after spending the past nine years building her career as a solicitor, Heather made the decision to follow a life-long passion for health, wellness and fitness, and pursue a career as a personal trainer.

Studying part-time with OriGym to fit around family and work, I achieved my Level 3 Gym Instructor and Level 4 Personal Training qualifications. I found OriGym’s courses to be fantastically structured and well organised, and my tutor Andy Tsang was brilliant - he taught me so much!

After graduating I started my fitness business with the sole purpose of empowering women, both physically and mentally. My business has now been shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Breakthrough Personal Trainer’ category at Northern Ireland’s Health & Fitness Awards 2019 - I am so thrilled! I am very grateful to OriGym for giving me such a great foundation to launch my business from.

I have had such a wonderful experience with Origym. I started and completed my Level 2 Gym Instructor theory within lockdown and passed my practical after lockdown. The Origym tutors were super helpful with feedback on work. Also, the programme design had lots of information and I could work at my own pace!
