1 Day Face-To-Face

You'll join us for 1 day in our Milton Keynes Academy. You'll have 4 practical workshops where you'll go between the classroom and the gym.

There's very little sitting around with 90% of the day being practical based with a maximum of 8 learners.

The practial workshops are not a test of your own fitness or what you can do.

Rather it's a time to practice coaching and learn how to be an outstanding Suspension training instructor.

Below is an overview of what to expect:

Workshop 1: While many have incorporated Suspension Training into their own workouts for exercises like squats or a chest press, this workshop delves into the nuances of proper Suspension Training technique, set-up and coaching a library of lower body exercises.

In this workshop you explore coaching the:

Setting up the Suspension training kit

Squat and variations

Lunge and variations

Isolation Leg exercises

Cardioivascular low body exercises

Workshop 2: This workshop will focus on your skillset as an instructor, including tone of voice, teaching position, coaching cues and observations. These skills are refined whilst learning and practicing these upper body exercises:

Chest Pressing and horizontal pressing exercses

Row and horizontal pulling exercses

Shoulder Pressing and vertical pressing exercses

Workshop 3: After lunch we'll start with "how to plan a 121 and group based session". We'll explore key session variables to ensure all your future planing isn't time consuming or overwhelming. We'll finish Workshop 3 exploring:

Arm Exercisese and variations

More Cardiovascular exerciss

Group-based Training

Workshop 4: Here we'll deep dive into a short business section on how you might offer suspension training to clients, what a suspension training package/class might look like and how you'd price and implement it. We'll conclude the final session with learning:

Core stability and variations

Core strength and variations

Each workshop is formatively assessed... meaning you are assessed throughout the day as you coach 121 and in small groups. This is a 1-day CPD course, we do not want you stressing about a final practical assesment. We find this ongoing assessment of "Show, Practice, Assess" means you learn far more and leave the day confident and remembering everything.

We've qualified over 1000+ Suspension Trainer instructors since 2010. We look forward to you being the next one.

Why Can't I Do This Online?

You can... just not with Parallel Coaching.

This might sound tongue in cheek!

We advocate the value of face-to-face learning in Suspension Training.

Being in a classroom with tutors and peers provides a unique, safe environment to build confidence in technique and instructing skills. Despite travel expenses and time commitments, our learners from across the UK and Europe find it worth the investment.
