It was not as hard as I expected - I found the training relied a lot more on balance than on brute strength.

ah yeah it would be one-on-one with a personal trainer. I am heavy so I thought it might be too hard if I did it now due to my higher bodyweight. I am very strong though so maybe not.

it kept me from going completely out of shape as a home workout, but when I went back to the gym, I had lost a LOT of strength.

I worked with a TRX trainer last year, and it was a lot of fun. For me, it expanded my range of motion compared to what I can do on my own with "regular" body weight exercises, and pushed me to move my body in new ways. It also required a lot of balance, so even when I was doing something that was technically an arm or leg exercise, I found I was pretty much always working my core.

Make sure you're working with a certified TRX trainer - given the balance required and the way it expands your range of motion, I imagine the risk of injury if you were trying it absent supervision would be pretty high.

I'm going to give TRX a try soon (nursing a wrist injury at the moment but when it heals). I'm wondering what fellow SPers thought of TRX... good, bad, indifferent...?
