Training Philosophy

No part of the body is an island unto itself. Try to pick up a pen off the floor using just your hand. It's impossible. Even simple movements simultaneously engage the legs, core, shoulders, arms, and neck. The body is an interconnected chain of muscles. Every movement we perform is a whole-body movement. That’s why TRX Training uses tools and movements that challenge the entire body in every plane of motion.


TRX Training draws on leading-edge research and best practices from the military, pro sports, and academic institutions coupled with our seasoned team’s experience working with thousands of athletes, coaches, trainers, first responders, subject matter experts, professors, and service members in all branches. 

As new discoveries evolve in the training space, TRX Training will incorporate these emerging best practices. The following core values give an overview of what TRX Training is today.

Whether you’re just beginning your journey into fitness or pushing towards your summit, TRX Training gives you a scalable, sustainable, fun, effective approach to help you achieve your personal best. 
  • TRX Training meets you where you are and takes you where you want to go, blurs the lines between training and play, strength and flexibility, and empowers you to be better at what you love. 
  • TRX Training uses versatile, scalable tools that anyone, anywhere can use any time to perform exercises that improve movement on the field or in life. 
  • TRX Training helps you apply the minimum dose of effort to get maximum results using only methods that work. 
  • TRX Training helps you become better at what you do, whatever you do, and keeps training fun so it feels like recess instead of a chore.
