In this TRX Trainer review I want to present you the real facts about the product so you can decide for yourself if it's worth your investment. The TRX Suspension Trainer was created by a Navy SEAL named Randy Hetrick and he first discovered the idea when he needed a piece of portable fitness equipment to use while traveling. Sometimes the creator of the TRX determined he was on to something and would go on to make his portable fitness equipment to the world.
One of the main benefits of the TRX trainer is the fact that you can take it pretty much anywhere. They really try to market the TRX as a gym in a bag that you can just throw in your backpack and get your workout in wherever you go. When I was doing research for this TRX trainer review I realized that it only weighed a couple pounds and when I went traveling it easily fit into the corner of my suitcase. I also tried out the doorway accessory, which works well well, but I still prefer to anchor the TRX to something sturdier than a door.
I was also fairly impressed with the quality of the fitness product as the whole thing was made up of durable straps, handles, footholds and an anchoring system. It's such a simple system that works so well, and I've recently begun seeing more and more companies come up with their own cheap imitations of the TRX suspension trainer but none of them seem to function nearly as well or be made of such high quality .
The amount of exercises you can do on the TRX trainer is really unlimited and the best part is you can easily make the exercise more difficult just by changing the location of your body in relation to the anchoring. It's a great way of using your own bodyweight as a tool to get in a great workout pretty much where you are. Some of the exercises I did in preparation for this review of the TRX trainer were atomic push-ups, low rows, 1-legged burpees and rollouts.
I've used the TRX trainer with many of my clients who are trying to rapidly lose fat because with it I'm able to get more muscle recruitment than I would if they were training on machines or even free weights. The only negative part of the TRX trainer that I have to mention in this review is that it's not on the cheap side. You're looking to invest almost a couple hundred dollars for the TRX suspension trainer and if that's too much for you then you're better off sticking to free weights. But if you're looking to elevate your fitness level and lose some fat at the same time where you go then the TRX trainer is going to be the answer.
