Suspended equipment training is fast becoming an essential skill to have. Being qualified in its use is a huge plus and something fitness managers are looking for. Be the go-to personal training for suspension training with our CPD fitness courses.

Extend your Expertise in Resistance Training

This course will extend your expertise in resistance training and enable you to safely and simultaneously develop your clients’ strength, balance, flexibility and joint stability using the very latest suspension training techniques.

Train Clients Anywhere

Adding suspension training into your toolbox allows you to deliver complete workouts in any location where there’s an attachment point – doors, posts, trees or frames – and make the most of the suspension kit in the gym.

Unlimited Application

Doing other suspension exercise courses may limit you to using a particular brand of equipment – our course provides you with the principles and tools to apply to any type of kit, giving you more flexibility and choice.

Truly Functional Training

With the need to support and control your own bodyweight, suspension exercise develops strength, flexibility, stability and skill in a range of everyday movements.

Quality Tuition

Our tutors have years of experience training with suspension equipment themselves and teaching clients. Expect lots of practice to hone your technique on over 30 exercises.

Is there a deadline to complete my training?

Each individual module within your training programme has a specific deadline or time-frame of completion that must be achieved in order to pass. The aim of the deadlines are to encourage you to succeed and ensure that you become qualified. The overall deadline to complete all your courses is 3 years from when you purchased.

How long will the course take? How many hours should I study for per week?

We would ask how much time can you dedicate to your study? The more time available, the quicker you can complete your course/diploma. If you don’t have lots of time, we advise taking it step-by-step.

Student Success Story...

Sam Rider

Fitness Journalist, Copywriter & Brand Consultant

Sam Rider is a freelance journalist and personal trainer, regularly contributing to Men’s Health, Gentlemen’s Journal, Welltodo, the Huffington Post and The Telegraph. In 2015, Sam turned freelance and used the opportunity to pursue his ambition and study for the level 3 personal training qualification.

Becoming a personal trainer isn’t cheap. It’s an investment, which can pay for itself if you come out the other side with the requisite skills to earn a living as a PT. For that reason, it’s not worth cutting corners. When searching for training providers FFT looked like the obvious choice. They had excellent reviews, have been providing expert tuition for 24 years, have a 97% student satisfaction rate and were named UK Active "Training Provider of the Year" in 2016 and 2017. Their part-time online course also meant I could study at home around freelance projects and work at my own pace.
