Even if you keep a traditional gym membership or regularly attend boutique fitness classes or bootcamps, the TRX Suspension Trainer is helpful when you need a backup exercise plan. No matter your fitness level or your location, TRX empowers anybody, anywhere to get a full body workout. Here are four examples of times when you’ll be glad you have a TRX Suspension Trainer.

Every body is different, so there is no single prescribed routine for a healthy pregnancy. Some women can continue with intense exercise until the day they deliver; others need to scale back. Wherever an expectant mother may land on that movement spectrum, the TRX Suspension Trainer can still provide safe, effective strength and mobility workouts.
At the most basic level, the Suspension Trainer is designed to support an athlete; a pregnant woman’s changing body may compromise her balance, but the TRX anchor point system offers a safety net. TRX Squats, Crossing Balance Lunges, and Muscle-Ups are more accessible movements than bodyweight-only alternatives because athletes can hold the Suspension Trainer handles for support. Even upper-body exercises—which usually involve core engagement with the Suspension Trainer—can be modified for expectant women. In the traditional TRX format for a row, bicep curl, or chest press, an athlete stands with their feet parallel; in a modified format to reduce core engagement, the athlete can offset the feet, with one foot set forward and the other set back.

One of the toughest aspects of recovering from an injury is determining the appropriate level of difficulty as you return to a workout routine. If you usually press 30-lb. dumbbells, it’s frustrating to downgrade to 20-lb. dumbbells. Many athletes re-injure themselves because they’re too impatient to gradually ramp back up to their pre-injury routines.
The TRX Suspension Trainer eliminates some of those mental obstacles. With a discreet step forward or back, athletes can find the most suitable angle for their current ability.
