Mixed Martial Arts - a full body challenge

Full-Body Integration:
Few sports challenge the entire body the way MMA does. In a fight, an athlete must be able to generate force and explosive power in any direction. Round after round, they must resist and control their opponent while sustaining repeated attacks. Like MMA training, TRX Training involves using the body as an integrated system to challenge the entire body in every plane of motion.

Mobility and Flexibility: 
Flexibility and mobility training help MMA fighters and combat athletes develop stronger, faster and more powerful, durable bodies. The TRX Suspension Trainer allows you to unload and leverage your bodyweight while performing strength, mobility and flexibility exercises, thus enabling you to instantly modify any exercise to your available range of motion or level of strength. With TRX, you can safely and appropriately improve your functional mobility and flexibility over time.

Core Fitness:
Core fitness forms the foundation for building strength, power, endurance and overall athleticism. Critical to MMA training, a strong core helps you to maintain consistent energy levels throughout a long and intense fight. Any movement performed on a TRX Suspension Trainer requires that you brace and stabilize with your abs, obliques and lower back so you can leverage your own bodyweight as resistance.
