Do you want to get in shape? But don’t have the time or money available to invest in a gym membership?
If so, there are now plenty of equipment available that you can use in the comfort of your home or garden if you wish.
One piece of equipment in particular that allows you to train wherever you want is the TRX suspension trainer.
I have had the TRX for about a year now and I must say it is worth every penny. So I decided to review it here for you in this TRX suspension trainer review.
The TRX Trainer is very simple exercise equipment that allows you to perform the most challenging and complex workouts and exercises your body can handle. It included two extremely strong nylon straps to which handles and straps are attached. These are between 6 and 7 feet long.
The actual strips that make up this kit are adjustable and you will find that you can get a good grip on the handles as they are made of soft foam. Having a good grip on them is important as it will help you support your body weight.
The best feature of the TRX Suspension Trainer is that it allows you to perform all kinds of bodyweight exercises (over 300 in fact) with it for your entire body, anywhere you want. And since you’re suspended and using your body weight, it forces you to work your core much more intensely than if you were using the machines at your gym, for example.
The company that created the TRX suspension trainer, Fitness Anywhere, made it very compact and lightweight (only 2.2 pounds), so it can be packed in a bag quite easily, allowing you to take it anywhere. In fact, you could take it with you when you travel.
This is a great feature if you travel a lot for business or you like to move frequently, so you can carry it around without much hassle. All you need is a suspension point. It can be a door or any high and well secured anchor point.
Unlike other fitness equipment on the market today, this one has been designed by a member of the Navy SEALS. He designed it because he was sick of not having the equipment available or the space to perform the kinds of exercises that allow you to work your entire body at the same time when you are away or on duty.
But don’t be fooled by its size and lightness. This is a robust product (safe to read). Nothing on the TRX is flimsy or cheap-looking.
However, the TRX suspension trainer is not for everyone.
I have a lot of experience with different exercise equipment. And I just have to warn you: believe me, I’ve seen firsthand how inappropriately investigated equipment is pushed to the back of the storage room never to see the light of day again …
If you love going to the gym. Where you use the same machines every time, you spend half your time chatting with friends … And if you want someone else to guide you through a workout in a controlled ‘class’ environment, then the TRX suspension trainer probably won’t. be for you.
I love the variety it gives me. I like the full body workout that I do in a fraction of the time it takes to do a step class. I’m not even going to mention how much more effective this type of training is …
So if you don’t have the discipline to train on your own, you’d better find a gym that offers group TRX training. Or just don’t get the TRX – simple: o)
Oh I almost forgot to mention: in today’s market I almost expect a product to be ‘not all that it promises in the can’.
The biggest and most pleasant surprise came when I got my TRX on the post … it was everything the guys at Fitness Anywhere promised. It’s really no wonder that most of the reviews on your site are very positive.
