TRX Suspension Training

TRX Suspension Training exercise techniques are designed to intentionally displace one’s center of gravity, which activates the core in every exercise. In addition to offering a range of intense movements targeting the abdominal muscles specifically, significant core strengthening is integrated into each back, shoulder, chest, hip and leg exercise as well. With TRX Suspension Training you can safely perform hundreds of exercises that build power, strength, flexibility, balance, mobility, and prevent injuries, all at the intensity you choose.

Come see what TRX® Suspension Training is all about!

TRX Fusion Suspension Training bodyweight exercise develops strength, balance, flexibility, and core stability simultaneously. The TRX Suspension trainer is the original, best-in-class workout system that leverages gravity and your body weight to perform hundred of exercises. You’re in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise – because you can simply adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance.
