TRX® Anchors: 6 Ways to Set Up Your Suspension Trainer™

TRX® Anchors: 6 Ways to Set Up Your Suspension Trainer™


We’re all familiar with those yellow and black straps we use for working out at gyms and in our home gyms—the TRX® Suspension Trainer™. What we’re less familiar with are the multiple ways you can “anchor” or “mount” (translation: hang up and secure) your TRX straps so you can train exactly in the way that fits your training style and space. Good news—we have multiple options, from permanent to semi-permanent to portable, to best fit your needs. 

Xmount4OUR MOST PERMANENT SETUP: THE NEW & IMPROVED XMOUNT

The TRX® XMount is perfect for anyone who has a designated workout space or home gym and wants a go-to anchor to mount their Suspension Trainer. Super secure and stay put, all you have to do is drill it to a load-bearing beam and you’re set. Bonus: it’s unique “X” design allows you to clip multiple TRX straps—even a TRX® RIP TRAINER®. Another bonus: it comes in White to give you options to match your space. 

KEY FEATURES

  • New & improved design features a polymer backing to reduce nicks and scratches 
  • Made with durable steel that's indoor- and outdoor-ready
  • Mount it to the ceiling for moves that require full range,  like pendulum swings
  • Comes with an easy installation guide

Door Anchor OUR EASIEST SETUP: THE DOOR ANCHOR

When we say “sets up seconds,” we mean it—the TRX® Door Anchor is the ultimate solution for those seeking a quick and easy setup or want to get in a workout while traveling. So lightweight and portable, it turns any door into a home gym, powering you to work out with hundreds of moves simply by opening a door and closing it shut on the anchor to mount your straps. 

KEY FEATURES

  • Fits easily over any solid door
  • Won't scratch or damage paint or wood
  • Literally sets up in seconds

Door Hinge AnchorOUR MOST MINIMAL SETUP: THE NEW DOOR HINGE ANCHOR

Want something more permanent than our Door Anchor but not as permanent as our XMount? Enter our new TRX® Door Hinge Anchor. It mounts easily to the middle hinge of most doors—just slip out your door’s existing pin and drop the Hinge Anchor in its place. Only takes a few seconds to set up. And it’s so low-profile, you won’t even notice it’s there. Perfect for apartment dwellers who don’t want to drill into their walls.

Invizi-MountOUR 2-FOR-1 SETUP: THE NEW INVISI-MOUNT

Consider this the ultimate camouflaged anchor. Perfect for those who love to work out in their living rooms but don’t want to showcase where they hang their straps, the TRX® Invisi-mount works exactly like picture hanging hardware, only it clips onto your TRX straps, too. Mount it to the wall and hang up your favorite photo. When you’re ready to work out, remove the photo and clip on your straps. Easy peasy.

  • Durable—can be used indoors or outdoors
  • Enables full range of motion

ExtenderOUR OPTIONAL ADD-ON: THE XTENDER

Need more length? Our TRX Xtender is exactly that—more strap length to use with your Suspension Trainer or Suspension Anchor. To use it, simply loop it around an anchor point (make sure it’s elevated above you) and then clip on your Suspension Anchor or straps. Need even more length? Use two Xtenders together. It’s really that easy.

Get your straps. Get your anchor. And start training!
