What is TRX, Exactly?

TRX stands for Total Body Resistance Exercise. It’s a type of training that uses your own body weight and gravity to build strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, core and joint stability, all while preventing injuries. The TRX was originally designed by a Navy Seal who needed to stay in shape within limited space using something he could easily take on his travels. Consequently, he created TRX.

The Many Benefits of Using the TRX System

For starters, you can minimize your training time by working your entire body, switching from one exercise to the next in just seconds. The best part? In every exercise you engage your core. This is great news if you’ve already been focusing on your core. Now watch how much harder things become when you really engage your core. Are you up for the challenge? Just think of how developing good core strength and stability will only enhance your performance and way of life. Your whole body will work and feel better.Another advantage in using your own body weight and gravity is that you’re able to adjust to your own personal fitness level. I love that you have control of the intensity just by walking yourself closer or further away from the anchoring point. That means instead of having to grab a different set of dumbbells or add more weight to machines, you simply adjust your foot placement. Easy enough, right? This is also why you can keep your heart rate up and keep moving. No wasted time (important in my workouts!), which keeps you constantly challenging your body through every exercise.As new discoveries evolve in the training space, TRX will incorporate these emerging best practices. The following core values give an overview of what TRX is today.

Whether you’re just beginning your journey into fitness or pushing towards your summit, TRX gives you a scalable, sustainable, fun, effective approach to help you achieve your personal best. TRX meets you where you are and takes you where you want to go, blurs the lines between training and play, strength and flexibility, and empowers you to be better at what you love. TRX uses versatile, scalable tools that anyone, anywhere can use any time to perform exercises that improve movement on the field or in life.
