Ask the Expert: What is TRX Suspension Training?

TRX is like no piece of equipment you will find in your traditional “Big” Gyms. TRX is an exclusive piece of training equipment like no other! With TRX, your body is your machine! Born in the Navy Seals, TRX Suspension Training challenges your body in every way possible. You develop strength, improve your balance, lengthen your muscles, increase your flexibility, and best of all, works your core (mid-section) the entire time you’re working out!

TRX was developed in the Navy Seals for versatile use anywhere! It consists of an anchoring point for above head, using 9’ high on a ceiling point or beam. Suspended are then two straps with handles on the end for your hands to grip as well as your feet to hook in (at different times, of course). TRX changes the way you train your body, giving you results you otherwise couldn’t acquire. In TRX you use your body as lever and force to attain desired intensity. TRX and body angle allow for hundreds of exercises for any fitness goals. Just a few for example, chest press, bicep curl, triceps extensions, squats, lunges, suspended plank, crunches, pikes, rows, and the list goes on.

TRX trains all fitness levels from pro athletes to seniors. TRX can be done one-on-one or in a class setting. From experience I can tell you that TRX classes are much more effective in that you’re surrounded by like-minded people with similar goals and the room is filled with energy, music and motivation you can’t get by oneself.  To find a certified trained TRX instructor and classes go to Happy workouts!
