Why You Should Try TRX Suspension Training


Figuring out which fitness equipment to use at the gym can be confusing. There’s so much to choose from that it’s hard to know which machine would best suit your needs and goals. For instance, you could opt for a simple barbell and weights set or maybe look into a complicated machine with pulleys, cables, and weights. But if you’re looking for something different, try TRX Suspension Training.

What is TRX? What is Suspension Training?

TRX Suspension Training, also known as Total Resistance Training, is a form of exercise that uses your body weight to train muscles. Users are suspended with straps attached at various points to the TRX machine. The amount of weight the body must overcome varies depending on the body’s position. The training uses movements, gravity, and body weight to provide resistance to push the body out of its normal range of motion.

TRX Suspension Training is effective because it works the muscles functionally. It’s not just about lifting weights or working on machines, but rather a complete workout that strengthens the core and stabilizes muscles.

Benefits of TRX Suspension Training

The benefits of TRX Suspension Training include:

  • Increased flexibility and balance
  • Promotes a more functional fitness routine rather than focusing on one muscle group
  • Burns calories and builds lean muscle mass efficiently
  • Improves your overall cardio endurance
  • Increases a person’s strength and stamina without putting excess stress on the joints

Who Can Try Out TRX Suspension Training?

Anyone can try TRX Suspension Training. People recovering from an injury can use it as a rehabilitation tool, whereas athletes seeking to increase their overall performance can also benefit. TRX Suspension Training is great for all fitness levels, including beginners, although working with a trainer is essential.
