As a fitness trainer who advocates for people getting up off their butts and moving every single day in whatever way makes them happy why do I prefer to train my classes and myself with TRX? I recommend TRX because everyone needs core strength and stability. You may think your core is just your “six pack” area of your abdomen, but it is not that simple. Core strength ranges from your shoulders to the bottom of your, ahem, bottom. Front, back, and sides of this large area need to be strong and flexible to be able to protect your spine. The TRX is the perfect way to strengthen the core in a low to no impact environment. I use the TRX to modify exercises to make sure form is dead on before adding weight, to rehab injuries, to regain balance and confidence in movement, and to build crazy strong humans who can move through the world with purpose.
I frequently hear people complain of back pain and improving core strength will reduce and possibly eliminate this pain. Protecting your spine and reducing your chances of a back injury are paramount to a long, comfortable life.
TRX will challenge your body in new and wonderful ways by adding instability into your workout environment. You will see results rapidly with consistent attendance. Your body will adapt and change in ways you never thought possible. You will gain confidence and strength. You will have fun and not feel crushed by the workout to achieve these gains.
Why TRX? TRX because you need to ask yourself – Am I TRX Tough?
