TRX (Total Body Resistance Exercise) owes its roots and ongoing drive to the US Navy SEAL Teams as Randy Hetrick, and his SEAL teammates searched for ways to stay in peak condition while stashed away on missions in wharf-side warehouses, urban safe-houses, on ships and inside submarines.
Suspension Training is a revolutionary method of leveraged bodyweight exercise. Safely perform hundreds of exercises that build power, strength, flexibility, balance, mobility, and prevent injuries, all at the intensity you choose. The range of motion and dynamics of the system allow you to perform unique, multi-plane exercises with varying resistance you can't do on any other exercise machine.
Listen as Nolan Ferraro explains the TRX System.
One great benefit of TRX is that unlike the traditional weight lifting machines that only target your strength levels, this product will hit all aspects of your fitness including your strength, flexibility, core stability, as well as your endurance.
When you use TRX you're going to have two different types of resistance coming into play: the resistance that the bands provide as well as the resistance of gravity. Because of this, you will find you see results faster and achieve a higher fitness level than ever before. As you go about increasing your strength levels after using this system you can easily adjust how much resistance you're working against so you'll never find that the workout is no longer a challenge.
Nolan Ferraro demonstrates a wide variety of upper, lower and core body exercises using the TRX system.
