TRX Introduces First Ever Group Training Certification Open to the Public
TRX, the industry leader in Functional Training and creators of Suspension Training, have expanded their education offering commercial fitness programming with an Advanced Group Training Course (AGTC) – the first-ever group-training certification available from TRX.
The TRX AGTC course provides Fitness Professionals with the necessary tools needed to deliver and program streamlined TRX experiences to boost training competence and marketability; and maximise retention and acquisition in gyms, fitness facilities and studios.
The TRX AGTC is the pinnacle of the “TRX Education Journey” – which consists of the Suspension Training Course, the Functional Training Course, and the Group Training Course. Developed over several years, the meticulously designed two-day course aims to elevate fitness professionals to a level where they are able to develop their own customised TRX programs in small- to large-group settings. This is in comparison to previous courses based upon a specific prescribed set of exercises and progressions.
TRX’s AGTC course delivers complex, scientifically backed principles distilled down and highly applicable for fitness professionals. These principles are based on TRX’s Foundational Movements and Group Coaching System.
“Instead of providing a step-by-step roadmap of specific exercises and progressions, this course goes a step further in educating at a level that empowers trainers with the expertise to design and implement their own unique TRX group-training programs and ensure that they meet our certified TRX standard,” said Chris Frankel, TRX Head of Human Performance. “This two-day course will help fitness pros, gyms, and health clubs create a blueprint to not only effectively deliver the TRX experience, but to reinvent it on a regular basis, in order to keep clients coming back for more.”
The course is broken down into two daylong sessions. Day one teaches the “programming lenses,” which focus on the techniques behind TRX Foundational Movements, coaching, and workout facilitation that Fitness Pros must master. Day two focuses on client engagement, with an emphasis on the methodology of delivering compelling TRX experiences, on and off the straps. The AGTC attendance is limited to ensure personalised instructor attention and feedback to improve coaching skills. Upon completion of the 18-hour course and evaluations, participants will earn the highest, most-advanced certification TRX has to offer.
TRX AGTC programming consists of 18 unique boot-camp style workouts, specifically designed to deliver four-, six-, or eight-week programs that will keep clients motivated, engaged, and reaching new levels of fitness. Each workout includes a warm up, cool down, functional strength rounds, cardio intervals and teamwork challenges, along with baseline and finish line testing to showcase members’ progress.
Experienced Fitness Professionals interested in this TRX Certification must first take the following prerequisite courses: the Suspension Training Course (STC), and the Functional Training Course (FTC) or the Group Training Course (GTC). Upon successful completion of the TRX Advanced Group Training Course, Fitness Professionals will be TRX Certified Group Trainers.
Lastly, course graduates will receive discounts on TRX products.
