What are the benefits of suspension training?

One of the biggest benefits of suspension training is increased core stability and strength. Regardless of the movement or body part being trained, during suspension training the core muscles must remain engaged to maintain proper body position. Also, because most of the movements involve multiple joints and occur in multiple directions, suspension training can also improve balance and coordination.
