Gymnastic rings were first introduced as a training method by a German coach in the 1840’s and later went on to become an event at the Paris Olympics in 1924. Suspended movement training has grown in popularity since it became much more accessible. The rope system acts as a portable piece of equipment allowing users to train against their own body weight in various planes of movement. This versatile piece of equipment challenges individuals core and joint stability.
During this one-day workshop you will learn a wide range of suspension techniques including push and pull movements, squats, lunges and core exercises. You will also learn the correct set up and instruction of equipment, how to correct common technique faults and methods of progressing or regressing exercises through the adjustment of resistance and stability.
Methods of assessment for this course include designing a lesson plan, written question and answers and a formative practical observation.
The pre-requisite for this qualification is that you must hold a level 2 fitness related qualification.
