Have you heard of the TRX Suspension Trainer? I’ve utilized one in a few gyms before and when I had a chance to try one out in my own home, I (not to mention my husband, who is a gym junkie) was super excited. The TRX Suspension Trainer is a super portable workout system that takes literally no time to set up and comes with a ton of exercise you can easily do pretty much anywhere you can anchor the system. Even though I’d experienced TRX Suspension Training previously, I was super pumped to set this up in my home office to use during breaks during my day!
I literally just threw the door anchor over the door, cleared some floor space and I was ready to go! The whole package is so small that this thing would travel really well. The only thing to remember is to make sure no one walks in on you while you are working out with the door closed. That would be tragic! 🙂
So, what are the benefits of TRX and how is TRX Suspension Training being used around the country?
In a nutshell, Tony Nunez, MS & Dr. Len Kravitz conclude that suspension training has similar if not BETTER results than traditional weight training and non-traditional core exercises.
TRX across the country:
- Fitness studios like Orange Theory Fitness and UFC gyms feature the TRX as part of their regimens.
- In addition, integrating the TRX into the yoga practice is gaining momentum as they are prominently featured in places like Yoga Works and Club Pilates.
- You can now purchase a TRX at your local Dick’s Sporting Goods
Created by a former Navy SEAL, the TRX empowers people to take their ‘gym’ along with them, whether it be at home or on the road. With a library of over 300 exercises, workouts can be kept fresh while improving better strength, power, endurance, flexibility, and mobility.
Workout programs and professional education have been broadly adopted in all branches of service in the U.S. military. The TRX Suspension Trainer is lightweight and portable, making it the ideal tool for health-conscious travelers, busy moms, and serious athletes alike. It can be easily packed into a suitcase (about the size of a shoe box) attached to a door, tree, and pull-up bar at the gym or playground. The TRX has been used by:
celebrities like Elizabeth Banks, Giselle Bunchen, and Jennifer Lopez, as well as nearly.
95% of professional sports teams in North America
in all 5 branches of the U.S. Military
That’s all pretty awesome and as a military brat, I pretty much instantly respect anything that was created by past or present service members. I’ve been using my TRX Suspension Trainer for a couple of weeks now (and my husband has been sneaking into my office as well) and I’m totally into it. I love the simplicity but also love how it is hard. Nothing easy about it, but you can adjust the intensity based on what you are looking to do that particular day. It’s a great investment for a workout that can travel with you!
Tell me, have you used a TRX Suspension Trainer? Do you love it like I do?
note: I was sent a TRX Suspension Trainer free of charge to try but was not asked to blog about my opinions and was not further compensated. I just wanted to share how awesome I think this is!
