TRX at the Fitness Center

TRX is a full body workout that uses the person’s own body weight as the resistance instead of machines or dumbbells. TRX Suspension Training develops strength, balance, cardiovascular endurance, flexibility and core stability simultaneously. We have eight TRX Suspension Trainer “straps” mounted from the ceiling in our fitness studio. Each student has their own TRX Suspension Trainer to use during the class. There is another mounted at the front of the class for me, your instructor to demonstrate the exercises for you. 

If I had to choose only one training tool to use, I would easily pick the TRX Suspension Trainer because it is a highly portable performance training tool that leverages gravity and the user’s body weight to complete 100s of exercises. You’re in control of how much you want to challenge yourself during each exercise – because you can simply adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance. I really love how the TRX uses so many muscle groups at one time. The beauty of the TRX is that even when an exercise focuses on your upper body, it still recruits your core, glutes and legs to keep your body stable. Plus, the instability of the straps and handles increases the benefits to the muscles you’re targeting.

Advantages of our TRX Suspension Trainer Class:

  • Delivers a fast, effective total-body workout. We hit ALL the muscle groups 
  • Helps build a rock-solid core. You are using your CORE the entire class
  • Increases muscular strength, endurance and flexibility. Good for golf, tennis, good for LIFE!
  • Benefits people of all fitness levels (pro athletes to seniors, class regulars to beginners)
  • By utilizing your own body weight, the TRX Suspension Trainer provides greater performance and functionality than large exercise machines.

We have two TRX classes at the Club. Tuesday mornings at 8:00 and 9:00. The class is easily modified so it’s great for beginners. It may look intimidating to walk into a TRX class for the first time and see the yellow and black straps hanging from the ceiling, but it’s not at all scary! TRX is a lot of fun and I will be there to guide you every step of the way. We start each class with a simple warmup that helps you get the feel for the TRX Suspension Trainer (the straps). The first half hour we do standing exercises that work the entire body, then we get down on the floor for planks and bridges using the TRX. We spend the last 10 minutes stretching. TRX is a great class and we hope you will join us!
