Whether you're taking a TRX Group Suspension Training class or working out solo on your TRX, it's not uncommon for your workout routines to become a bit, well, routine. As a result, many clubs and fitness studios have started incorporating other tools with the TRX Suspension Trainer to keep workouts fresh.
At Crunch Fitness in LA, fitness professional and TRX trainer David Brainin has his clients doing cardio and strength work, along with Suspension Training, in 45 second intervals called Circuit City (check it out in the video above from KABC-TV in Los Angeles).
“In Circuit City, we bring in the TRX, we bring the BOSU, we bring kettlebells, we bring the jump rope into some circuits," says David. "You can vary it a lot and you want to do that, more than anything. If you bring other accessories into the mix, you're really going to change it.”
In this case, change is good because muscles respond best to a changing stimulus. Also, using tools requires more core stabilization and engagement, which helps to strengthen your core musculature and reinforces why we say Suspension Training is “all core, all the time.” And the results speak for themselves.
"You're going to get high intensity mix of TRX together with cardio," says David. "We have an element where we have more impact, more power-oriented moves, and at the same time, the strength is also ramped up with the kettlebells."
Crunch Fitness LA offers Circuit City with TRX on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm. All TRX classes are included with gym membership and a day pass can be purchased for $30.
