For me this is an easy story to write. I started taking TRX classes about two years ago, and absolutely love it! Eventually I purchased TRX for my home and personal use as well. The acronym stands for Total Resistance Exercise, and it is both challenging and rewarding. I quickly felt my strength increase and could see definition developing in my body over a relatively short period of time. Another benefit of TRX is you can take it with you and set it up anywhere in a matter of minutes. Keep it ready to go in your garage, or go outside and attach it to a tree in your yard! Proponents of suspension training strongly believe that regular participation develops core body strength, as well as joint and muscular stability, reducing the chance of injury. If you do TRX exercises regularly using the patented suspension training bands, you too will get in better shape and look forward to exercising more frequently!
Created by the Navy SEAL’s, Suspension Training (bodyweight) Exercise develops strength, balance, flexibility and core stability simultaneously. Randy Hetrick, a former Navy Seal and Stanford MBA graduate, developed the Total Resistance Exercise (TRX) equipment and the associated Suspension Training bodyweight exercises in the 1990s, and started marketing it in 2005.
Interested? It requires the use of the TRX Suspension Trainer that you can obtain with our help. It is a highly portable performance training tool that leverages gravity and the user’s body weight to complete 100s of unique exercises. You’re in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise, because you can simply adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance. Just by moving your feet backward or forward a few inches creates an entirely new dimension and weight challenge as you perform a particular exercise. Ladies and gentlemen this is the answer to that “muffin top” or burgeoning mid-section respectively.
Many of the exercises are the same as you would do on the floor and with weights, such as pushups, flys, squats, pull ups and extensions! In theory, TRX is based upon seven basic movements, push, pull, plank, rotate, hinge, lunge and squat. Again, the further you place your feet behind you, the harder and more advanced each exercise becomes. There are also two ways to grip the straps, short or long strap handles, which is another way to increase or decrease challenge difficulty. Whether you are beginning a fitness journey or already pushing towards your ultimate fitness goals, TRX Training helps you to move better, feel better, and live better.
