Invented by a Navy SEAL commando, TRX suspension training is a total-body workout that leverages on the body weight and gravity to engage in functional movements. The term “TRX” originates from the phrase “Total-Body Resistance Exercise.” It focuses on a person’s own body instead of relying on dumbbells or machines to exercise. Using the suspension of only two TRX straps, it is an effective way to build endurance, power, strength – providing with the user with a powerful cardio and core workout. The two suspension straps allow an infinite number of exercises that is able to cater to the various fitness level of every individual effectively.

A fitness assessment will be conducted before the commencement of your training so that the trainer is able to assess your fitness level, modifying the training session to your fitness capability. The workout can often be described to be similar to simple versions of anti-gravity yoga or reformer Pilates. Each exercise done during TRX suspension training will usually have 6 to 12 repetitions when the trainer is targeting strength training while 12 to 20 repetitions will be followed if endurance training is targeted. Our team of trainers will assess your progress constantly, so that we are able to increase or reduce the workout intensity to match your fitness level.
