Ashley, I have found that the National Sports and Conditioning Association to be a wonderful source for activities related to sports and athletics conditioning.
In fact they will soon have their 2011 Conference and at the conference someone by the name of Colin Aina, CSCS will present “Training with Ropes and Speed Ladders. Juan Carlos Santana of IHP Fitness is another individual you might want to refer to as a resource as far as you inquiry is concerned.
FYI, The NSCA CSCS credential is a credential the American Council of Exercise requires candidates who wish to teach ACE Functional Training and Sports Conditioning Works to have.
I sure hope this is helpful to you.
Whatever you do, just learn. You don’t need to have the initials by your name that signify you as “Battle Ropes Champion” or “Battles Ropes Certified” to learn new ways to inspire your clients to maximize their potential. Remembe the physics behind any movement and you will be fine.
Juan Carlos Santana said just a couple months ago, he is tired of the fitness industry in the US providing certs for “this and that” just to sell a certification for knowledge to provide for a client–then he goes over to the UK and sells his “MMA Training Certification.” He lost a little credibility with me.
Good luck! Keep on truckin’!
I actually instruct a battle rope boot camp…feel free to reach out to me if you need ideas or check out some of my videos that incorporate battle ropes into workouts. Try the “Battle Rope Burpee”…very good full body exercise that targets core strength, explosive power, balance, and stamina.
