Think you need to lift heavy weights to get strong? Think again! Whether you are after a high intensity cardio workout or want to focus on strength and core control, the TRX will challenge you in ways you never thought it could.
First developed and introduced by Navy Seals, it has spread into the circles of professional athletes and gyms. TRX is a suspension training program using bodyweight and utilizing gravity and movement to improve stability, strength, flexibility and balance. The intensity can be individually modified by adjusting the body position, which makes it a great workout for people at any fitness level. Recognize where your body is at that day and train accordingly. Due to the balance aspect, TRX training is an all body workout and strengthens the stabilizing muscles with every move.
What Jackie says:
“TRX Suspension Training has it all. If you want a high intensity cardio program, it can deliver. If you want to focus on strength and core control, it can deliver. It’s that good. Your weaknesses get exposed very quickly on the TRX, which is a good thing! I never back out of a good challenge so when I’m made aware of my weaknesses, I want to make sure I work it enough that it becomes a strength. Body awareness is everything.”
What Jana says:
“How did I hear about TRX? From Jackie of course! She was so excited after her TRX training that she convinced me to join a class and I was hooked. I love to challenge myself, especially with core intensive exercises. Weak muscle groups can be focused on and every exercise modified to my needs that day. I love that I’m in charge on how challenging the workout will be, no matter if an athlete trains next to me or someone new to exercise.”
Who is TRX for?
TRX is suitable for almost everyone. If you would like to build a good foundation, it is a great tool to build good stabilizers and improve posture. If you already love exercising and train regularly, this might be just the tool you were looking for to mix it up and add a different challenge to your week.
With just a slight change in position the intensity of the training changes completely. Someone who never really exercised, regular gym enthusiasts, cyclists, runners, bodybuilders…everyone can join the same class and gain maximum benefit. The workout will be as challenging as you modify it.
What to expect from a class?
After a warm up you will go through different rounds of exercises and finish with some stretching. Each round will consist of upper body, lower body and stabilizing exercises. The speed and intensity will be up to your liking that day. You will be shown the adjustments to make each exercise harder or easier, so you can make slight adjustments according to your needs. Following the instructions and using the right techniques will give you a good sense for your body and safe guide through the exercises. You will leave the class having worked your stabilizing muscles and the whole body.
