The National Qualification in Battle Rope and Sandbell Training course is designed to provide qualified health fitness instructors and personal trainers with the knowledge and skills to enable them to prescribe safe, effective and appropriate heavy rope training.
Although not many people knew about it, heavy ropes have been around as far back as Egyptian times and have been used as an effective method of exercise as a stand alone workout or integrated into a cross training approach and now heavy rope training is gaining in popularity and making it mainstream. If you’re looking for a unique, highly effective, full body kinetic chain workout and conditioning that brings a new twist to you and your clients’ health fitness routine, this is it. Not only will rope training increase your strength, power and endurance, the constant motion of rope undulations will impress you with a full body muscle-toning, metabolic workout unlike any other. You’ll be amazed at how fast a few quick whips can get you to your optimal heart rate. Many gyms are now introducing ropes as part of their sports conditioning and functional training zones but, with no formal training available in Ireland to date, NTC are proud to be the first providing comprehensive training for qualified health fitness Instructors and personal trainers to learn how to use them effectively.
Following successful completion of this course, learners will be able to:
Instruct clients to use the ropes in a safe, effective and appropriate manner
Integrate and embrace the principles of rope training into a client’s health fitness regime
Plan and design effective training programmes for mixed fitness levels helping clients to accomplish their goals whether it be gaining strength, endurance, power or other.
Incorporate rope training as an efficient and effective training tool in strength and conditioning and to enhance athletic performance.
The National Qualification in Rope Training is open to application from all professionals who hold a recognised, valid and current primary fitness instructor qualification which is accredited or mapped at EQF Level 3 or higher. Not all primary fitness instructor qualifications meet the minimum standard required. If your primary fitness instructor qualification does not meet the requirements NTC will be unable to award a certificate for this programme even if you have completed it, so if you are in any doubt whether your qualification meets the requirements please submit a copy of your primary fitness instructor qualification at least two weeks prior to the start date or contact the NTC prior to enrolment.
