Learn How to Use One of the Most Effective in Your Gym
WHAT MAKES A GOOD WORKOUT PLAN? A well rounded workout plan includes components for power, strength, endurance and durability. Traditionally, you need tons of different equipment to provide these for clients.
FULL BODY WORK. Often thought of as a finisher or tool for your upper body, battle rope workouts utilize muscles in your glutes, back, abs and can be used to build legs with lunges, squats and jumps. Ropes can be power, strength or endurance.
SAFETY. Compared to loaded weights, ropes are safer for clients because the rope is limited to the power you create
CLASSES. Train high level athletes and beginners in the same class because you get out of the rope what you put in, rather than being dependent on needing a variety of weights or equipment available. Wide degrees of clients use the same rope
"What were the top three things you learned from both Living.Fit Battle Ropes Level I and II?"
These courses introduced me to a huge variety of different ways to use the battle ropes in order to train different metabolic pathways. That battle ropes can be used as a tool for building strength, increasing power, or burning fat depending on how they are used in combination with the work to rest ratio. That this tool is incredibly versatile and is an excellent way to engage the full body (most times with low impact), as well as measure power/strength output and also inconsistencies in an athlete.
"What is one way you will implement this education in your personal or professional life?"
I will regularly incorporate many of the compound fat-burning exercises in the bootcamp program that I run. I will also regularly check-in with the massive variety of exercises in this online resource to develop my own training. As I have difficulty with degeneration in the cervical spine, the low impact of the battle ropes is a fantastic option for me to increase endurance without putting a lot of extra pressure on my spine. This will be something that I can share with clients who also have mobility restrictions or suffer from injury. The battle ropes are my absolute favourite tool for improving my mindset, and fueling my mental strength. I plan on using many of these exercises to take my own training to the next level physically, while also continuing to pass on my passion for improving mental health with this tool that I find so empowering. The number of exercises in this course will make it much easier to keep challenging myself and developing myself both physically and mentally. This, in turn, I will pass along to my personal training clients.

One of the ways Aaron discovered many benefits of Battle Ropes:
"When I was training for the Kettlebell World Championships in Dublin I needed to add an aerobic/endurance component to supplement my kettlebell training because my feet were getting killed from so much running. By adding progressive amounts of double rope work to protect my feet and mobility instead of running I drastically improved my endurance with the kettlebell, with adaptations/improvement in my aerobic capacity, lactic threshold, and mental toughness."
