I’ve Been Suspended (TRX Style).
I shouldn’t need to spell out the importance of exercise, but if your routine doesn’t enhance the quality of your everyday movement, you may as well skip it.
Okay, so I’m being slightly dramatic– but at the heart of this facetious comment is an exaltation of functional strength training. Encompassing a range of exercise methods, this system balances the body’s daily motions, strengthens specific muscle groups according to careers or hobbies, can be progressed and regressed according to energy level and neuromuscular adaptation, can happen almost anywhere, fits within your busy lifestyle, and stimulates your inner four year old. However, as lovely as medicine balls and kettlebells are, I would certainly not enjoy lugging them to the beach nor through airport security.
Let me introduce you to the TRX Suspension Trainer. Weighing in at a whopping two pounds, this versatile piece of equipment is suitable for virtually everyone. Gym rats can get their sweaty hypertrophy training on, gym haters can take it outdoors, and elite athletes can improve their capabilities. Even yogis can supplement their practices with intelligent use of this device to take their asana practices to the next level. With endless ways to modify an endless repertoire of movements, even the most deconditioned or injured of clients can be nursed to health with the help of a TRX certified instructor.
That’s where I come in. Having spent this past entire Sunday learning the proper techniques of this amazing tool with licensed TRX staff, I am ready and excited to share my knowledge. If you’re not in the Los Angeles area, you can find a directory of other TRX certified instructors here, and if you’re interested in purchasing this lovely apparatus for yourself, please do so through the official site, as unsafe fakes have recently begun circulating.
However you do it, and whomever with, be safe, have fun, and get ready to see your body evolve. Happy suspending!
