TRX is used today by thousands of people at all fitness levels, from everyday people hoping to look and feel better, to members of the U.S. Military and elite athletes.
What Is TRX?
TRX is a full-body strength training workout system that utilizes a person's body weight instead of machines or dumbbells. It's comparable to Pilates and anti-gravity yoga, and is a total-body workout that's centered on your core. It also increases muscular endurance and can be set up anywhere, including in your home or gym.
- Gives you the freedom of mobility, creating a foundation for core stability
- Helps you develop increased flexibility while working to expand your muscles rather than just develop bulk
- Will build strength and balance
- Allows you to target specific body areas
How Does It Work?
TRX is basically a fitness tool made of nylon with two movable handles. It is attached to a non-moving anchor, like a tree, door frame or special TRX structure, and the handles can be manipulated to target different body parts. Resistance can be either increased or decreased depending on how far or close your body is to the anchor. There are six basic body positions with TRX:
- Facing the anchor point
- Facing away from the anchor point
- Facing sideways to the anchor point
- Lying face down on the ground
- Lying face up on the ground
- Lying on your side
What Should You Expect From A TRX Workout?
Be prepared to start slow as you train your way toward more intense exercises. But most of all, you should expect a total body workout regardless of your fitness level.
Can TRX Be Done At Home?
One of the beauties of TRX training is its portability. It can be done almost anywhere there's an anchor point, including in your home. It's suggested that you first try it in the gym with a trainer to get comfortable with it, as well as learn the proper technique.
