What is TRX suspension training? It allows for the explosive movement of plyometrics without the same stress upon landing. By adjusting the body position, the level of difficulty of a particular exercise changes as well. Making it appropriate for people at all fitness levels.

  • TRX Core training is performed on the TRX Suspension trainer using your own bodyweight eliminating your need for bulky and expensive exercise equipment.
  • TRX Core Training will increase your power centre by helping you to develop a strong core that will lead to stronger transference of power from your lower to upper body.
  • When you use the TRX suspension trainer your entire core will be activated as a stabilizer in every TRX exercise!

Many exercises include things like push ups, leg squats, chin ups, planks etc.. TRX is actually quite simple to use. Pretty much all you need to do is snatch the handles and move your body away from what is referred to as the “anchor point” to begin working out.

The biggest benefit of TRX training is that it gives your core muscles and extraordinary workout. In addition, it also strengthens all of the stabilizer muscles in your body. This is truly unique and the only other exercise product that I can think of that does something similar to this is resistance bands.

It’s for anyone: So, who should do TRX? Everyone!

It’s beginner-friendly: Another reason to try a TRX class — it’s easy to tweak exercises to your own level of difficulty and ramp up when necessary. You determine how hard or how easy you really want to go. So really advanced or really beginners can work out in the same class and get what’s right for them.”

The cardio-strength training connection: Don’t think it’s just your muscles that you’re working. TRX suspension training moves target different parts of your body while also raising your heartbeat. Many exercises done on the TRX suspension cables integrate so many muscles, which require oxygen. This increases your heartbeat and breath as you hold a move or do your reps, making many TRX exercises superefficient, integrated strength and cardio moves.

It beats boredom: Two suspension straps — infinite ways to use them. You can do it all with TRX suspension training, from lunges to planks to upper body resistance exercises. And the best part? Your workouts can change as many times as you want them to. That means that both your mind and your body will stay challenged with all the ways you can mix up your workouts.
