As a Senior Instructor at TRX, one of the perks of my job is getting to test new products with my clients. Over the past few months, I’ve been doing that with our new TRX Pro Suspension Trainer. To give you some context, the Pro has always been one of TRX’s premium products, due to its durability - built for high-volume use (believe me, this thing can take a beating), locking carabiner (so no one steals your straps), and the rubber handles that give you added grip when you’re turning up the intensity. What I’m trying to say, is the TRX Pro that we’ve always sold is the best Suspension Trainer out there.
I’ll start with, what I consider to be, the most game-changing update - adjustable foot cradles. Over the years, I’ve seen many a small foot go flying through the foot cradles during mountain climbers, TRX crunches, etc... This has always been a pain point. Those days are over. Now, the members of the “itty bitty foot committee” can easily and quickly adjust the size of the foot cradle and be on their way to the perfect plank.... And the same goes for those with big feet.
For all our yogis out there - and trainers who are teaching TRX for Yoga - the adjustable foot cradles will allow you and your students to comfortably and safely do any sort-of barefoot training. There’s also an extra layer of padding that feels oh-so-nice when you’re trying to achieve that yogi zen. So go on, kick off those shoes and get after it.
Any germaphobes out there? Rest easy, we’ve got you covered (but not in bacteria ... okay bad joke;-). Some days I teach as many as six classes a day, and the straps will be handled by over 100 members. That’s a whole lotta germs—and a lot of sanitizing between sessions for me. With the new Microban antimicrobial technology infused into the handles, I feel a lot better about protecting my clients and my instructors — especially going into flu season.
UPDATE 3: PADDED TRIANGLES
At first glance, this may appear to be the most lackluster update, but I gotta tell you, doing a TRX sprinter start has never felt cushier (no more annoying rubbing on the forearms). Working your butt off on the straps can already be a painful experience (in a good way), no need to add discomfort to the mix.
UPDATE 4: FRESH NEW LOOK
We can all tell ourselves that it doesn’t matter how something looks, as long as it works well. But let’s be real, at the end of the day, looking good is always a nice little extra (why else would your clients let you boss them around for an hour? ;-). The new grey highlights, pops of yellow, and other little touches, look super slick.
So there it is in a nutshell, the new and improved TRX Pro Suspension Trainer. Once you start training with it, you’ll know what I mean when I say: TRX’s BEST just got BETTER.
