The TRX Suspension Training unit is a portable, industrial-strength, nylon webbing system with handles, foot cradles and anchoring attachments. TRX stands for Total Body Resistance Exercise
The TRX unit uses your own body weight against gravity to increase strength, stability and endurance. As it's suspended, rather than fixed like traditional weight training equipment, it requires a great deal of core work to stabilize your movements against the forces of gravity.
If you already like working out with stability balls, foam rollers and elastic resistance equipment, you'll probably enjoy the challenge. It doesn't look as macho as pushing weights, but once you try it, I'm sure you'll be convinced otherwise. Because the TRX system is suspended, it creates a dynamic environment, making the neuromuscular system work to co-ordinate movement. Athletes will love this right away. In fact, the professional NHL and NFL teams and many elite level athletes are using it.
