Clients come to Coaches for results! They want to lose weight, get stronger, have a great sweat, and let’s be honest, figure out how to use all the cool equipment. The TRX Suspension Trainer has brought people to the TRX Training Center from all over the world, they want a kick ass workout, with some really cool tools, from some kick ass coaches.

Our newest tool in the box is the TRX Duo Trainer. The two strap, single anchor point design similar to gymnastic rings meets the functionality of TRX Suspension Training, while expanding the exercise library. I am loving the versatility of the Duo Trainer because I can go from pullups, to dips, to atomic pushups, and finish off with some muscle ups in just a few seconds due to the ease of adjustability with the Mobile Grips and Infinity Loops. If I need to make some micro adjustments I’ve got the versatility of adjustment tabs as well!

I get a variety of responses, from excitement to pure fear, when I tell them we are using the TRX Duo Trainer. The best part is at the end of class when the responses change to accomplishment and excitement for the next training.  I’ve slowly introduced the TRX Duo Trainer into some TRX Bootcamp classes (A multi station, multi-modality workout) because I can program some simple exercises and free up some room for moves that require a bigger footprint.

Here are some of my favorite exercises that you’ll see in my classes at the TRX Training Center, try them on their own, or mix it into your stations based circuits.
