What is TRX?
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. (This is why you can pack it up and take it with you nearly anywhere you can place the anchor point.) Consequently, he created TRX – and boy, did the rest of the world catch on.
Benefits of TRX Group Classes:
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? As I mentioned, 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.
