The High Fives Foundation, a non-profit organization that helps winter action sport athletes who have suffered life-altering injuries, has developed new adaptive workouts using TRX Suspension and Rip Training. In this video, personal trainer Chris Cloyd of Performance Training Center in Truckee, CA leads a pair of High Fives adaptive athletes through a rehabilitative workout, showcasing the scalability of TRX for people of all levels.

“Introducing instability helps us engage core musculature that our adaptive athletes don’t see in a day-to-day basis and really redefine what posture is for them,” said Cloyd.

High Fives has been implementing TRX Training in its practice for some time now and even aided professional skier Jake Hickman in his triumphant return to the slopes after suffering a severe spinal injury and paralysis in his legs. Watch Jake’s story here.
