TRX Suspension Trainer Review

So I had been personal training for about a year now, I was still in college and wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do with my life.  I was doing the “old school” style of training and by that I mean I was going through the Muscle and Fitness magazines and pulling out all the Arnold Schwarzenegger and bodybuilding workouts.  I only wish I knew then what I know now and had gotten a TRX Suspension Trainer when I first started training.

I only initially planned to do personal training on the side while I got my degree and literally had to be TALKED into going to this fitness convention called IDEA.  But after I plunked down the $300 or so bucks to go and traveled down to southern California, I had  an awakening.  I saw this yellow and black thing that people where using to do all this crazy bodyweight suspension training stuff with.

At first I didn’t even know how to wrap my head around it, I was used to pounding out heavy weights with barbells and machines…this sounded like it was some new form of pilates or something.  Which was in NO WAY up my alley.

So after standing there watching all these trainers use it, one of them asked me if I wanted to give it a shot, so I thought “what the hell” and decided to see what all the commotion was about.  And to be honest this thing literally blew me away and I ran to the garbage can to throw out all the skepticism I had about it.

It was a heck of a lot more harder for me to do exercises on the TRX Suspension Trainer then it was for me to do the same exercise with weights.  Now what does that sayabout my conditioning?   Let’s start with me being so delusional that I actually thought I was in AWESOME shape…FAIL.

After only 15 minutes of using the TRX I immediately ran over to the guy selling them, threw down my credit card and told him straight up, “I want in!”

I took the TRX back to my hometown and I was so excited the first day I used it that I felt like a kid on Christmas morning.  I had a brand new toy that I could share with my clients and get back to a better way of training.  I had slowly started coming out of my Muscle and Fitness / Arnold Schwarzenegger bodybuilding type of training brainwashing that I had put myself through during the last 5 years.

One of the reasons I’m doing this TRX suspension trainer review is because it’s literally a gym in a bag and you better believe I take this baby wherever I travel and can get my workouts in wherever I go.  In fact, I just took a trip down to Yosemite for some relaxation and even used it on a couple of the days I was down there…people looked at me like I was crazy but hell, I still got my workout in.

It’s also a high quality product created by a damn Navy Seal, if that’s not speaking loud to you then I don’t know what will.  He discovered the idea behind the TRX suspension trainer when he was trying to figure out a way to train his fellow Navy SEALS while they were in remote regions of the world, I’m telling you if a Navy SEAL can use the TRX to get in shape then there’s no reason why you can’t.

Awesome Features to Know – TRX Suspension Trainer Review

  • You can use progressions with it – so even if you’re just starting out or if you’re crazy advanced gym rat you can still do the same exercises.  Since you can adjust the straps, all you have to do is move your body around to get an easier version of the exercise.  And once you start to become a pro you can do exercises with just one leg or one arm and even throw in some stability balls in to the mix.
  • You can take it anywhere and do a workout any-frickin-where you have something to hook it up to.  So if there’s pullup bar, a tree, or even a door you can set the TRX up and get to work.
  • It’s a total body workout and you’ll be sure to use more muscles in every exercise more than you would with just dumbbells or barbells, and especially machines.
  • This thing is a beast, I’ve had mine for almost 4 years now and it’s still in great condition.  I’ve traveled 1000’s of miles with it over many trips and it’s still in tip-top condition.  Besides who’s wants to travel it humongous kettlebell when they’re on vacation?
  • It’s awesome for all kinds of workouts.  If you’re looking to do metabolic resistance training, interval training, muscle building, fat loss, etc. it’ll do the job 10x over and you’ll have more fun doing it then you would with a pair of dumbbells.

The TRX Suspension Trainer turned out to be an incredible investment into not only my health but also as a professional personal trainer.  It really got my engines revving into fitness and excited that there were different ways to exercise outside the old school traditional stuff.

One downside is that if people have never seen it they’ll probably give you weird looks or bother you with a dozen questions on what you’re using and what it does.

Other than that it’s well worth the investment if you’re looking to take your game to the next level and finally get in awesome shape.  This concludes my TRX Suspension Trainer Review.
