gravity and your own bodyweight allowing you to work multiple muscles and joints simultaneously. You can train for a mix of support and mobility, from strength, flexibility and core stability. TRX suspension training was developed by a US Navy SEAL team member as a way to stay in peak condition while away on missions. It’s now used in all branches of the military as well as by pro athletes, fitness professionals and physical therapists around the world. Key benefits to TRX Training:

  • Multifunctional – can be performed anywhere, anytime, by any fitness level.
  • Lightweight and portable – use it when travelling or for outdoor workouts. You can hang the rope from trees, monkey bars, etc.
  • Reduce fitness boredom – hundreds of exercises are possible that can hit every part of your body.
  • Smooth – Makes for easy transitions from one exercise to the next.
  • No excuses – When you can’t get to the gym, use the TRX at home with the TRX door anchor.

If you’re interested in TRX training, ask your trainer for a demonstration.
