TRX, the maker of functional training equipment and training content, announced its professional education course — TRX Suspension Training Course (STC) — will be available virtually, and free of charge, in response to the current global climate amid COVID-19.

Rooted in the underpinnings of TRX’s movement-based methodologies, the TRX STC typically costs $295 and has served more than 300,000 professional trainers worldwide with a 98 percent approval rating. The course is available to a variety of fitness industry professionals and enthusiasts including personal trainers, group fitness instructors, club and studio operators, physical therapists, strength and conditioning coaches, athletic trainers, physical education teachers, and health care facility staff.

“Fitness and training professionals have literally been TRX’s lifeblood since I started the company more than a decade ago and are a major reason why TRX is a global leader in the industry,” said TRX Founder, Randy Hetrick. “These individuals devote their careers to helping others live healthy, happy lives and today is a chance for us to pay back a debt of gratitude in these difficult times.”

Led by world-class TRX Course Instructors, the TRX Suspension Training Course provides participants with foundational knowledge, skills and abilities on how to properly set up and utilize the TRX Suspension Trainer in any environment — at home, outside or in a gym setting. Attendees will learn how to perform a wide range of Suspension Training exercises, including progressions and regressions, to accommodate all fitness levels.

The course lasts six hours and consists of two formats: a six-hour session done over the span of a day or two, three-hour sessions done over the span of two days. The latter option was designed for those with less flexible schedules.

Prior to the course, registered attendees will receive a digital course manual. Graduates will be required to complete an exam prior to receiving their certificate of completion and up to seven hours of Continuing Educations Credits (CEC’s). Additionally, TRX is in the process of updating its online ecosystem for training professionals.

Registration for the virtual TRX Suspension Training Course opens Tuesday. Attendees will need access to a TRX Suspension Trainer. For more information and to find out how to register for the live, virtual course, click
