Course Details

The National Qualification in Battle Rope and Sandbell Training course covers all relevant areas to ensure that you hit the ground running.

  • OVERVIEW
  • Heavy rope training has been around as far back as Egyptian times and has been used as an effective method of exercise, as a stand alone workout, or integrated into a cross training approach. Now heavy rope training is gaining in popularity and becoming 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 and sandbell 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.

” Everything was so well structured “

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to John, all the staff and tutors for their support and guidance over the past months. You all made the educational experience of doing the Personal Trainer course a terrific one. I feel much more confident about getting out there and helping people to realise their goals. Your care and respect for the class was always evident, none more so than before and during exam time. As a pretty busy parent, I was a little unsure about when I’d get the time to study and practice but because everything was so well structured, it made life so much easier.

” It was the NTC course that helped me get there and I just wanted to thank you for that. “

I hope you’re well! I just wanted to check in with you to say that I hope you’re doing well. I took part in the NTC PT course in the spring semester of 2017 in Cork and wanted to provide you with an update on what’s happened since qualifying. I managed to find work experience and am now happy to announce that I was offered a job as a coach in a private service in Cork and have been enjoying the experience so much and learning a lot. It was the NTC course that helped me get there and I just wanted to thank you for that. If you ever need any former students to give a reference or advice to a class, let me know and I’d be happy to do so. Thanks again for everything.

” I’m very happy with what I got to learn with the NTC … it was totally worth it. “

Hi Michelle, I just wanted to share a recent experience and give a big thank you to you and the girls involve in group fitness class.

I went for an interview 2 days ago for a position that I really wanted to get at a gym club in London. As well as a one to one interview, it involved a group practical assessment where candidates needed to teach a class. I had prepared a circuit as my assessment but at the moment to teach my class I changed my mind and decided to teach a group fitness class to the beat. I got a called from the manager yesterday offering me the job, I was actually shocked because I didn’t expect it as I have no experience at all in the fitness industry. The manager said he was impressed with the class, he loved it that it was to the beat, how it was structured as well as the teaching points and everything, and despite the fact that there were candidates with far more experience, they were good but it’s easier to put a circuit together than doing an exercise to music class. I’m very happy with what I got to learn doing the course with the NTC and happy that investing money there was totally worth it.😃

Thank you all!!! ? Have a lovely day
