Why Kevlar is Made for Fitness

Why Kevlar is Made for Fitness

Not all exercise equipment is built to last, with the exception of TRX Suspension Trainers. Weights and kettlebells may last you a lifetime—assuming you avoid rust damage—but gear like medicine balls, slam balls, and sand bags have a pretty limited lifespan considering all the wear and tear—the impact of slams, the constant friction of sliding—it’s too much for most materials. 


Now you can make an impact as often as you’d like—our TRX® XD™ KEVLAR™ functional training tools are made to slam, scoot, toss, and flip them for basically forever. Foam mats not cutting it? The XD™ KEVLAR® resists tearing and divots. Slam ball gone bust? The TRX® XD™ KEVLAR™ Medicine Ball actually comes with a warranty (no joke).

So, what is KEVLAR®, anyway? DuPoint scientist Stephanie Kwolek developed Kevlar in 1965 and it was instantly revolutionary for its lightweight, flexible, heat-resistant performance that’s five times stronger than steel on an equal weight basis (it was actually marketed as a replacement for steel in racing tires). Because the tight weave of its fibers is so incredibly hard to penetrate, it’s resistant to bullet and knife damage, which is why military and police personnel often wear KEVLAR® vests and helmets. If it’s good enough for them, it’s definitely good for fitness. 



Speaking of fitness, there’s no way to gloss over it: gear is a massive investment. Just as curate our wardrobes with items that’ll last us through the years, it’s especially important with fitness equipment. That’s what makes KEVLAR® so incredible: it’d built to last a long, long, time. 

Bottom line: when you’re ready to add bags or balls or discs to your training collection, TRX® XD™ KEVLAR™ is the way to go.
