Digital education: TRX trains more than 14,000 professionals for free using live virtual training

By Journalist    17 Jul 2020
The six-hour live virtual training course was provided on a complimentary basis since the end of April

In response to the pandemic, TRX, the global leader in functional training equipment, world-class training content, and app-based training technology, transformed its TRX Suspension Training Course into a free, live virtual edition via Zoom.

Since launching at the end of April, TRX has trained more than 14,000 professionals worldwide.

The Suspension Training Course educates consumers on how to effectively incorporate TRX Suspension Training into their coaching practice for improved results with clients, students, athletes and patients.

Normally costing £150 (US$188, €165), the six-hour live virtual training course was provided on a complimentary basis since the end of April.

“At TRX, we knew immediate action was necessary to help support the fitness industry and its trainers,” said Nathan D’Rozario, TRX education and training manager EMEA.

“By quickly pivoting to make our education available online and for free, we were in the mindset of supporting fitness professionals utilising this time of physical restriction and gym closures to further their education and add a skill to their repertoire that would be useful in future.”

Course programming was developed to provide a perfect introduction for all levels and goals for online personal training and group training.

Attendees will learn how to properly set up a TRX Suspension Trainer and use it in any setting, with any level of client. The course teaches attendees to apply principles of the TRX movement-based coaching system as they cue and correct common faults.

D’Rozario said: “We’ve been completely inspired by the number of completed registrants to date and the feedback has been fantastic.

“Our TRX Master Trainers have quickly adapted to a new, virtual way of teaching the course, and there has been a 98 per cent pass rates.

“COVID-19 has forced the industry to fully embrace technology, and there’s no going back now. We’re excited to be at the forefront of delivering our services virtually to trainers across the world and plan to continue evolving and adapting our education offering to support fitness professionals and the industry as a whole.”

To date, seven live courses have been delivered in the UK graduating over 1,400 people, adding to the worldwide growing total of over 14,000 certified TRX trainers.

Beginning in July, TRX will move these courses to a paid model requiring a minimal fee, in order to support the TRX Master Trainers delivering the content.
