Total Resistance Exercises
TRX is a full-body strength workout that utilises a person's own body weight instead of relying on machines or dumbbells. It's good for endurance athletes, power lifters, and fitness newbies alike. Comparable to a simple version of reformer Pilates or antigravity yoga, TRX offers a total-body workout, centred on your core and relying on your body weight.
Expect a great workout. The exercises can easily be adapted to your fitness level. Be prepared to start slow, as little by little you can train up to the full position. Breathe through the movement, and as always, listen to your body.
What is TRX?
How TRX Works
The reason TRX is such an effective workout is down to the intensity.
By adding push/pull resistance to each exercise, the TRX forces you to fight against gravity.
It turns simple bodyweight exercises into something much tougher and demands that you to engage your core throughout. For example, by hovering one foot off the ground in the loop of the TRX, even simple static lunges become a tough test of stability and strength.
Rather than just working one area, TRX creates a full body workout that'll have you breaking out a sweat without a single burpee.
Each exercise will require you to engage your core. With your feet in the loops hovering across the ground, you’ll really feel the ab burn with moves like mountain climbers, planks, pikes and crunches.
The continuous circuit-like flow from one move to another keeps your heart rate high throughout the class, ensuring you burn maximum calories whilst simultaneously building strength
Whilst TRX has HIIT-style benefits, it is also a low impact form of exercise, thus minimising risk of injury
