What is a TRX or Suspension Trainer Workout?

The Suspension Trainer or TRX as it is sometimes called is one of our top sellers at Fitness Equipment Cork. The Suspension Trainer was created by a U.S. Navy Seal – because there were times when they were unable to engage in their normal exercise regime, yet they need to stay in shape. He needed something that could be used anywhere, yet it had to be compact enough to fit into his travel kit.

The result of his innovation was the Suspension training system, which employs only gravity and your own body weight to perform (literally) hundreds of different exercises. This small piece of equipment provides a full body home workout and is easily stored away, making it the perfect fitness equipment product for your home workout. 

TRX, of course, stands for “total-body resistance exercise”.

The workout requires a suspension trainer – which is compact enough to take with you on holiday, but will allow you to create an exercise routine that is as challenging as you like. The wide range of potential movements allows the user to develop his or her strength and core stability, while improving balance and flexibility at the same time.

The endless flexibility of the suspension trainer workout system means that it can be used by professional athletes and elderly people alike. In order to make any exercise easier or tougher, the user can simply adjust his or her physical position, which will then change the resistance.

As a result, the training system is just as effective for performance sports enthusiast as it is for someone recuperating after surgery or illness, or simply trying to reduce the effects of old age. The user is in complete control, allowing for more or less strenuous exercises for specific muscle groups, or in general as required.
