Level 1 Towel Instructor Course

Learn how to train a client anywhere, anytime using just a towel.

This little-known and underused piece of kit is often dragged around during a client session but never used to its full advantage. Following this 1-day CPD course, and virtual exercise library, the towel will soon become your preferred go-to equipment when planning one-to-one and group sessions.

Course Overview

You'll learn 100+ towel exercises that will add huge variety and choice to your planning. These include Cardiovascular, Resistance, and Game-play.

Towel training is arguably the most underused, yet most adaptable and effective piece of portable equipment that a FITPRO could own.

Ultimately Towel training is more than just a series of exercises. On the course, you'll learn how to:

replicate a pulley machine with an unlimited selection of load, meaning that intensity can be varied in an instant.

deliver training systems effortlessly and adapt any exercise in an instant.

plan and deliver fun and interactive sessions that get your clients smiling and fully invovled.

and more so... how to confidently perform each towel exercise yourself and coach a client to optimal performance.

The course is 90% practical meaning you get to hone your technique and get valuable feedback from your tutors and others on the course

This one-day course is delivered face-to-face in our Milton Keynes Academy.

There is no pre-course work to complete.

The attendance day is all about building your coaching and confidence using a towel.

There is easy access via main road routes and free parking on site. Also, the main central train station is just a 5-min walk away from our Parallel Coaching Milton Keynes Academy.

You'll also get a virtual exercise library with lifetime access and updates of 100+ towel exercises.

You won't have to remember the exact ins and outs of each exercise or game... this is all on-demand in your virtual exercise library.

Entry Requirements

To complete this course, you must already hold a Level 2 or 3 fitness qualification. This could be Level 2 fitness instructor, Level 2 exercise to music, Level 3 PT, or level 3 Yoga and Pilates.

It's good to have a reasonable amount of experience in fitness. That could be in a gym, studio, home, or Bootcamp setting. You certainly don’t need to be an expert, although once you graduate as a Level 1 Towel Instructor you'll be an expert.

What will you learn

Benefits of Towel Training

A Towel is arguably the most versatile and portable equipment that a FITPRO could own and sue.

Being portable means that you could train your clients in a park, a gym, their home, your garden, a sports hall, or a studio.

Unlike other portable pieces of equipment, the towel is often bought by the client so you do not need to lug around vast amounts of kit.

A towel is cheap, easily replaceable, and easily cleaned.

What's more, a client can sink their hands into the towel as they grasp it.

Meaning they don't hold a cold kettlebell or bar and for many clients who expeience joint pain in their hands, the towel offers s a comfy and warm approach to training.

Further still, many clients get overwhelmed or stuck with chasing arbitrary numbers on a weight stack.

The towel offers resistance with no numebr allocated, yet overload is still fully achieved on every set.

This simply yet under-used approach to training offers a client comfort, variety, and convenience... yet still delivers a huge bang for its buck to get results.

How to plan a Towel session

It might seem straight forwards to plan a towel session... after all, it's just a series of exercises? or is it.

You'll learn the intricacies of planning a Towel session, including:

✔ Creating a balanced program
✔ Exercise order
✔ Timings and intensities
✔ Planning for specific goals
✔ Adaptations and Progressions
✔ Warm Ups and Cool Downs
✔ Towel specific mobility exercises
✔ Gameplay and group interactive exercises

How to progress a Towel session

A Towel session can be progressed in many ways, it is not just about changing the exercises in every session.

You'll also learn how to:

✔ Choose the appropriate resistance
✔ Progress timings
✔ Change the complexity of exercises
✔ Adapt global session variables

During the course, you'll learn how to logically progress a Towel session, which includes finding the BEST intensity for your client.

By the end of the course, you'll feel confident in being able to manage 121 and groups session, each working at different intensities to suit their own goals and needs.

You'll also learn how a Towel session can be used for all components of fitness, including resistance, cardiovascular, flexibility, sport-specific, and motor skills.

Towel Exercise Library

You'll learn 100+ towel exercises that include resistance, cardiovascular, core, agility, balance, coordination, flexibility, and gameplay.

All the exercises are also hosted on a closed video tutorial playlist which you can watch time and time again post-course to ensure you never forget a thing.

How to deliver a 121 and group Towel session

The versatility of Towel training means that you can deliver one-to-one sessions or in groups. Each requires a different set of instructing skills.

On the course, you'll gain the confidence to talk and coach in front of larger groups.

Plus learn the intricacies of voice projection, voice control, and pitch so you don't appear like a Sargent Major in the Army and just shout.

You'll also learn what to say, where to stand and move, how to progress individuals and control each session as a leader.

Towel Business

It's vital you leave any of our courses with a clear route to get a solid return on your investment.

How you'll be assessed
