The dream – a fast effective total body workout suitable for every individual, whatever your current fitness level. Low Wood Club Senior Fitness Instructor, Emma Robinson, explains how her new Suspension Training classes deliver just that.
Proven Track Record of Results
Suspension training has been used by U.S. Navy Seals for many years, so there’s plenty of evidence to show off its effectiveness. Using suspension straps which enable you to use your body weight and gravity to perform a wide range of exercises. You control how much you want to challenge yourself by simply adjusting the body position to add or decrease resistance.
Traditional fitness training usually works on one muscle at a time, whereas suspension training allows you to use multiple planes of motion and multiple joints simultaneously. It also gets your heart rate up to provide a great cardiovascular workout. Training whilst standing engages the whole body and forces the body to control and strengthen the body’s stabilising muscles, and most importantly the CORE.
Suspension training is a form of functional training which involves performing activities similar to those in daily life. It is particularly effective in developing strength, balance, flexibility, movement and stability – essential for people of all ages and ability.
