Training with Suspension

Since buying my first suspension trainer in 2004, from a small stand in the US, training with body weight, supported by a strap has grown massively as a fitness trend. Now this way of training for fitness or the Core has become a staple of most Personal Trainers programming. At Faster we have 5 defined skills that we manipulate to match to our clients needs. Two of these are based around a system we call Training In’tension, where we attempt to make either a limb, or the spine, more rigid than the rest of the body, while at the same time allowing movement to occur. The ‘feeling’ the client gets is often one of stability in the joints being held still, the transfer from training to everyday life will depend on how well you make the exercise match their mechanical and energy system outcome.

Our Suspension Training Fitness Video Channel is where you will find over 200 suspension exercises to choice from to create your client’s suspension workout.  Here is a taste :


Training with Bands
Bands have always been a popular way of training people, bands allow for easy transport, they offer enough resistance for the average client and they are not as intimidating as other pieces of training equipment. At FASTER we put the band to the 5 defined skills that we train around, then develop exercises to move the limbs and keep the torso still, or to accelerate the body in to new ranges, increasing the clients ability to slow down new motions.
Please take a look at our Band Training Fitness Video Channel for sample exercises for your client’s workouts.
