I have noticed my body losing inches... I have tried crossfit and got a lot of injuries this seems to be really helping me on good form as well as balance... would love to hear what others have experienced with TRX.. looking forward to being part of this team :) Mon, 8 Jul 2013 09:39:57 EST Does anyone input their TRX exercises on Tracker I was wondering if anyone put the exercises they do on TRX on the Fitness Tracker and how you do that. I don't see any options when I search for TRX. Sun, 17 Mar 2013 17:36:38 EST Using TRX with RIP:60 DVDs I have a TRX and recently acquired the RIP:60 DVD's (not including the trainer) off of ebay. For those of you who may have used both the TRX and RIP:60, what differences will I need to be aware of when trying to use the RIP:60 DVD's with the TRX. <BR> <BR> I understand they are very similar but wonder what differences there might be. I have not ever used the RIP:60 but the DVD's have come highly recommended to me. Any advice would be appreciated.... Tue, 10 Jul 2012 22:13:22 EST FitDeck Cards I was wondering if anyone has used these specifically the TRX ones? Could they be used with RIP:60? <BR> Sat, 16 Jun 2012 11:21:20 EST RIP:60 Trainer does anyone else have this type of suspension trainer. I just picked it up at Wal-Mart. Just wondering if it is any different that what they sell on line. I will start this workout after I finish Supreme 90....only 19 days to go.

Hello, <BR> I was in a bodypump class once week and although I was sore each time I did not really see difference over the 4 or 5 months I went. How many time a week do you really need to ST to build up strength not just to maintain what you already have. <BR> Also, is it normal to be sore for about 3 days after ST or does it get better as you train more regularly? <BR> Oh and I just met with my potential personal trainer. We will talk next week. Yikes, hope this goes well. <BR> Thank ... Sat, 19 May 2012 01:42:55 EST Hi from turtle Hello, I'm new here and to trx. I'm a 39 year old SAHM with two girls 6 and 8. I was 193 after my first daughter and lost weight and now at 145 probably now. Haven't weighed my self for a very long time. I was self training for a half marathon and was at my lowest "healthy" weight at 129 or so. I had to drop out a week before because my doctor said so. I have a very severe chronic mono. It's not the kind that gets better after 6 to 9 months. I got depressed and almost scared to workou...

That's gonna be something... Sun, 25 Mar 2012 23:14:31 EST Hi! Hi everyone! I'm back on SP after not using it for a while. I'm looking to tone up and become stronger. I saw the TRX on Live with Kelly and decided that I wanted one. But, I couldn't afford one, so I built my own this past weekend using some youtube videos. So far I've worked out with it twice and it's kicking my (not in the greatest shape) butt. Love it so far. Hope to get some good ideas and motivation from you all - and perhaps add some ideas to the group too! <BR> :) Tue, 20 Mar 2012 22:07:10 EST HOW TO ATTACH RIP 60 TO A STURDY TREE BRANCH? I'm trying to figure out how to securely attach my other suspension trainer outdoors, to oak tree branch. Suggestions? I also may try to visit a local playground. Thanks!

I actually am really looking forward to school going back in and getting into my "groove" again. Tue, 30 Aug 2011 14:55:10 EST What I love about suspension training... I was not active on Spark for a while and have recently come back. <BR> <BR> The seasons have changed, my fitness goals have changed, my fitness level has changed, and my life and health have changed... <BR> <BR> ...and yet my TRX still fits into it all. No matter the time, place, goals, or beginning fitness level, the TRX is such an ideal tool. <BR> <BR> I made my own out of parts from the hardware store last year and if memory serves, I spent under $40. Since I made my TRX, I haven't e... Sun, 10 Jul 2011 15:59:00 EST ATTACHING TRX Does anyone use their TRX out you use a step stool or something to attach it to pullup bars or trees? Fri, 27 May 2011 06:02:39 EST Introduction I had the TRX forever (2yrs?) and use it occasionally. I have no real excuses as it is always hanging up ready to use but I hate strength work. I NEED to get back into it and am going to try using the Flow Mobility stuff TRX released at the beginning of the month. The hope is that if I can stretch regularly then it is a shorter leap to strengthening regularly. We'll see. Other than that I am female, at least 60 lbs overweight, and about to be 47. Need to take a deep breath and just jump in! Mon, 23 May 2011 09:52:59 EST New team member I am brand new to suspension training! I just started dating a guy whose side gig is personal training, and he gave me a Jungle Gym on our first date, and has given me a couple of workouts to do with it. I can still feel yesterday's workout, which I love. I really enjoy using it and am looking forward to learning more moves. And getting past the fear that I'm going to pull the door off its hinges! <em>20</em> Mon, 16 May 2011 21:43:43 EST TRX 28/28/28 Do these moves 3X this week in addition to your regular workouts.... <BR> <link><BR>1/05/02/behold-the-trx-28-28-28-challe<BR>nge/?utm_source=SilverpopMailing&utm_m<BR>edium=email&utm_campaign=2011_05_TRX%2<BR>0Newsletter%20%281%29&utm_content=2011<BR>_05_TRX%20Newsletter%20%281%29&spMaili<BR>ngID=1043772&spUserID=NTcwMDQ4MjcyS0&s<BR>pJobID=27134841&spReportId=MjcxMzQ4NDES1 </link> Thu, 5 May 2011 14:45:46 EST Team active?

It's just over 40 minutes long. But it was good! Not much core work in this one. It was more about metabolic training. Sat, 26 Mar 2011 14:21:34 EST New to team! Hi. I'm Sue. I just joined the team. I just got my TRX and did my first workout at home yesterday. It was amazing! <BR> <BR> I tried it at the gym in a demo class and loved it. (I usually don't buy something for fitness unless I know I like it. You have to pay a trainer at the gym to use the TRX equipment. That's why I ordered it for home.) <BR> <BR> I have worked out for a long time now, and I love using the ball because of all the muscles you have to use. The TRX takes it up a... Sun, 20 Mar 2011 12:32:00 EST Hello from California My name is Carol Lee and I was born and raised in California. I started looking into the TRX when I first saw Drew Brees using it.I just recently acquired the TRX suspension trainer from a friend who could no longer use it, per Doctors orders. I felt bad for my friend that she could no longer use,, but very thankful that she thought of me first - instead of allowing it to gather dust ( her words). I know that the TRX will take my workouts to the next level, and I am so looking forward to th... Mon, 21 Feb 2011 21:27:09 EST I am NEW to TRX I have just done my first TRX workout at the gym. I did a trial workout and LOVED it!. Plan to sign up with a TRX trainer to get the technique down, and then purchase one for home for the whole family to enjoy. Can't wait! Sat, 19 Feb 2011 12:50:07 EST Tracking TRX workouts Can you please tell me how you are all tracking your TRX workouts on Sparkpeople? I haven't figured out a way to do that yet. Thanks for your help! Thu, 17 Feb 2011 15:55:52 EST I am new to TRX Hi everyone, <BR> <BR> I have started using the TRX since January and I am really enjoying it so far. My goal is to use it 3 times per week and so far I am doing well. I did take a short TRX class at our local community center (4 classes) but it is over now and I am just using it at home. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you and to learn more about how you all use the TRX for yoru fitness routines. Enjoy the rest of your week!

It's nice to finally meet other people who actually KNOW what TRX is and not have to go through a long explanation, lol. Know what I mean? <BR> <BR> I've been working out on the TRX at the gym for about 6 months now and love it! I workout with a personal trainer once a week and supplement with a couple of 45 minute TRX classes each week. One thing I love about the classes is that everyone can come from beginners to advanced. <BR> <BR> I'm looking forward to exploring the topic...

Fri, 21 Jan 2011 14:17:49 EST Downloadable Workouts Has anyone tried the downloadable workouts? I did both the Endurance Circuit and the Metabolic Blast. The downloadable ones look different than the printed ones that came with my TRX. <BR> And, OMG! How about those Atomic Pushups! I had to modify. I couldn't bring my knees to the sides for more than 4 reps, so after that I just brought my knees in instead. Still was tough. lol <BR> <BR> Also, have any of you guys bought any of the TRX dvds?

I've only been using it a short time, but already it has made a vast improvement in my flexibility and range of motion. <BR> <BR> I have adhesions in my ribs on the right side and after using the TRX ONE time, the pain was dramatically reduced. I hope that in time it will go away completely. <BR> <BR> I wish I had a TRX about a decade ago! Tue, 17 Aug 2010 18:59:44 EST Hello TRX Sparks I'm new to SP, but have been using TRX for a few months now. I use it on my own at the gym, I dont have one at home yet. I have reviewed the TRX Manual that comes with it, and viewed a lot on videos on YouTube. So basically I created my own circuit to target my body. I would love to hear from some of you that have been using it a while and what kind of results you've seen. What works for you?

Fri, 25 Jun 2010 17:23:35 EST hi from madison, wi! hey everyone! <BR> <BR> i didn't know what the heck TRX was until i switched to my new gym a few months ago. i've taken a few classes where they've shown us different moves and i like it a lot! some of the moves the trainers have shown me are a little too difficult, but i like the fact that i can decide how easy or hard i want to make it just by changing the angle i'm at. <BR> <BR> now i feel confident enough to corporate some of the moves i've learned into my own workout! Thu, 29 Apr 2010 13:28:36 EST What system do you have? Which TRX do you use? What do you like best about it? What do you wish was better about it, if anything? I do not yet own a TRX system, but I have a goal I'm shooting for. If I reach the goal, I'm treating myself to the system of my choice! <BR> <BR> Also, if you have any of the DVD's and/or charts, which ones do you like?
