Are You Ready for TRX?

Does your fitness routine need something new? TRX Suspension Training® is a body weight exercise that develops strength, balance, flexibility and core stability simultaneously.

This equipment leverages gravity and the user’s body weight to enable hundreds of exercises for every fitness goal. Better yet, the TRX technology can be used by anyone from the Navy SEALs to seniors wanting to stay fit and healthy. 

How it works

TRX enables the user to do moves from push-ups and seated rows to squats and planks. To maximize the benefit, the length and tension of the equipment can be changed quickly to adapt to different exercises and your varying abilities with each. 

This easy-to-learn method is fun and different, giving you a fresh perspective and challenge for your fitness routine, without added weight. Targeting each body area separately while utilizing your core and maintaining an elevated heart rate, TRX brings a whole new approach for a whole new you!

“I was really impressed with how you much you could do and how easy it was to modify exercises with such a simple piece of equipment!  I was even more impressed when I felt all the hard work I did the next day!” says TRX participant Julie Wassell.
