Benefits of TRX Suspension Training

The benefits of TRX Suspension training include increased fat loss, increased core strength, increased joint and muscle stability, and the convenience of a gym you can take with you wherever you go.

One of the biggest obstacles to achieving maximum results from any workout program is inability to maintain a consistent exercise regime. There’s never enough time, enough space, the right equipment or simply enough desire to do it.

The TRX Suspension Trainer makes working out simpler, convenient and fun. The TRX workouts, created by a Navy Seal, is resistance training at its simplest and finest. Specially designed nylon straps provide the structure and support; your body weight and focused determination do the rest.

What is TRX Suspension Training

TRX, which stands for Total Body Resistance Exercise, is a suspension training method that uses your body weight and gravity as resistance to build strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, core and joint stability.

Fat Loss

Everyone can use a little extra muscle. Fat is not only less compact and less attractive (in excess), but it also creates increased hormone imbalance. Higher percentages of body fat means higher levels of estrogen production, particularly in women.

Higher levels of estrogen production means weight gain will come mostly in the form of increased deposits of fat on the body. It becomes a vicious cycle that is difficult to break. One of the best ways to reverse that cycle is to gain muscle mass.

Muscle mass does not necessarily mean more bulk for those who are not interested in bulking up; however, more muscle is absolutely needed, bulky or not, to increase fat loss. TRX Suspension Trainer provides the resistance necessary to increase muscle mass for increased metabolism and a faster rate of fat burning.

Core Strength Training

Anyone who has exercised for any length of time knows that it’s not possible to spot reduce any area on the body. However, the heavy utilization of core strength by the TRX Suspension Trainer helps to strengthen problem areas in the stomach as well as translating into an overall body workout.

Strengthening the core will not only provide better form for your exercises and better posture in general, it also becomes the central location from which energy consumption begins and radiates out to the rest of the body. It is the furnace that fuels the rest of the body. That means more calories burned per workout. Also, unlike traditional strength training with weights where you are isolating only very specific muscle groups at a time, TRX calls in the use a greater variety of muscle groups in a more natural way due to the balance requirements of TRX training to support your own body weight.

Your muscles become more alert and responsive and have increased strength as a result. Increased strength creates better balance, and better balance creates increased strength. The core and all over body workout provided by the TRX means that you’ll see and feel results quickly.

Joint & Muscle Stability

The overall body workout also means that you are strengthening muscles that will strengthen and protect joint areas. Think of your muscles as shock absorbers for your joints. The stronger the muscles surrounding those joints, the less impact those joints will experience not only during exercise but also in supporting your own weight in daily activities.

Also, since you are using your own body weight for resistance, there is a natural translation from the exercises that you do to the benefits that you will see in day to day living – not only strength but also greater mobility and flexibility.

Additionally, TRX allows for a full range of motion in your exercise routine. This decreases stress on weaker joints by allowing adjustment of movement to match your own level of fitness, whether beginner or advanced.

TRX Resistance Trainer works, and it will work wherever you go. Weighing in at less than 2 pounds, TRX can be packed to travel and mounted anywhere that can support your body weight – a door, a strong tree limb, a solid pole, even a wall or ceiling mount (where permissible).

The TRX Suspension Trainer is a gym in a bag. It is the ultimate tool in overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles to maximum results in your exercise routine. The TRX can be used any time, any place and in some of the most limited spaces. So, there are no more excuses.
