Secrets of Success

The Trx Suspension Trainer Really Works!



The TRX is a great strength training tool and program you can use at home and some gyms offer classes with it, too. It looks like resistance bands but isn't stretchy; it allows you to strength-train using your own body weight in a variety of ways. It hooks to a door, tree or other secure pole.

More Information:

It comes with DVDs, workout cards and great instructions. You can modify every exercise to fit your level, beginning or advanced, and all of the exercises work your core and really challenge your body in unique ways. You can work every major muscle group and adjust it easily.

  • TRX is a great functional and portable workout system. I initially bought with the intent to use it while I travel but found it to be so effective that use it at home in place of my normal weight lifting workouts. I think it is more effective than free weights for many exercises. - by INDYCHX
  • I would also like to see TRX listed in the exercise section so I know how much energy I am using and can post my specific TRX exercises on my fitness site.

    As well as with free weights..... I hope someone reads this that can help with this :) - by COOLBEANS2010
  • I have, and more importantly - use regularly, a TRX suspension trainer. With this nice weather here in Minnesota, I'm eyeing my trees, looking for a place to use it outside! - by MATILDA444
  • We tried TRX at an Ironman expo a few weeks ago and I thought you needed the giant contraption...after reading this it looks as though I need to look into it more!! - by MELHAYWIRE

  • Buying a TRX is my reward to myself when I finish my STS workout rotation. It's a great motivator! - by JILLIAN40
  • Nicole, Where did you hang yours in your home? - by IAMSHE-RA
  • I've only tried TRX twice, but I loved it! Your body weight really is enough to get a good workout! My current gym doesn't have one though. emoticon - by IAMSHE-RA
  • Thanks to you and your review I began using the TRX. I am getting amazing results! My strength is really improving, I have increased flexibility. I don't know what I would do without it.
    There is a Spark Team here for TRX users (TRX Users Unite) and the TRX and this team have changed the way I look at exercise forever.
    Thanks for taking the time to review this! - by THENEWMICHAEL
    I am very impressed by the TRX suspension system. I can control the difficulty level. Adding this to my cardio has helped me stay motivated and increase my weight loss. I can really see the difference when I take my measurements. I am using the TRX system at our YMCA and am the only person in the class. My instructor said most people aren't taking the class because it appears different and intimidating. My son is a certified personal trainer and assistant manager at a large fitness center in the Chicago area. He would like to see the TRX system in his fitness center. Our birthdays are 3 days apart so I am buying one for him and he is buying one for me!
    My question for Spark People: I see the advertisement on this site daily but TRX is not listed in the exercise section and I have no way of knowing how much energy I am using or even to post my specific TRX exercises on my fitness site. - by WSMILLER56
  • i don't see the link to get the points for reading this......
