Our coaches and trainers choose training methods and equipment that promote functional fitness to get you the results you’re after. Rather than complicated weight machines, you’ll perform most movements with your body weight and simple pieces of equipment, like a TRX. Here is a little bit more information behind the what and why of TRX suspension training:

What is a TRX?

The TRX is a portable training device that builds strength, balance, flexibility, and core strength using your body weight. This suspension training device was actually developed by a Navy SEAL, and today it’s used by all different fitness levels.

The traditional TRX suspension training system consists of two black and yellow adjustable straps anchored to a single point, usually a pullup bar, a doorway, or even a tree branch. At the end of each strap is a handle and strap system that allows you to perform hundreds of different exercises.

The Benefits of TRX:

Portability:

The portability of a TRX allows you to work out anywhere. Even in a fitness studio, you can set up multiple TRX stations and move them as necessary, depending on what the workout calls for.

Scalability:

The adjustments to the system mean you can modify almost any movement to suit your fitness level. A single movement (like a squat) can be modified to challenge a beginner, as well as an experienced athlete.

Full-Body Workout:

TRX is short for “total body resistance exercise.” And using a TRX almost always ensures that you’ll get a full-body workout, perhaps working muscle groups without you even realizing it. It can be a pretty sneaky piece of training equipment in that way.

When getting started with the TRX system, it can be helpful to work with a knowledgeable and experienced coach. That’s where we come in. To learn more about using the TRX and how to incorporate it into your workout routine, contact us today.
