What is TRX Training?
TRX Suspension Training is a revolutionary method of training using leveraged bodyweight, which develops strength, balance, flexibility and core stability simultaneously. TRX Training gives participants an edge over traditional training, in that the exercises performed with the TRX engage multiple muscles all at once. This type of "functional" training mimicks real-life movement, unlike traditional training where muscles are isolated. TRX Suspension Training helps improve performance in the playing fields of both sports and life.
HISTORY OF TRX:
TRX Suspension Training was developed by former Navy Seal, Randy Hetrick, to keep his men and women in peak condition when they were out on missions and didn't have access to a gym or traditional fitness equipment. It is used today for elite units in every branch of the Armed Forces, in the training rooms of professional athletes as well as anyone seeking to improve their level of fitness, from the beginner to the advanced. It is also used in Senior Fitness programs and for rehabilitative programs.
HOW IT WORKS:
TRX Suspension Training differs from traditional exercises in that the user's hands or feet are supported by a single anchor point (handles/foot cradles) while the opposite end of the body is in contact with the ground. This type of training means your body has to stabilize, so your core is constantly working. You can work in multiple planes of motion and vary the angles allowing us to train like we live.
