The past couple months, I had been working out with a trainer, as you may or may not know. For the second half of our time training together, he introduced me to TRX. TRX is training using these suspension cables, whereby you are able to give yourself an entire workout from head to toe using these cables. Normally, I don’t always get into these type of workout tools – you know the type you see on an infomercial. But TRX is actually incredible. I could actually see myself getting one of these and training with TRX on a regular basis.
A lot of the time, when you are working out a particular part of the body with the TRX exercises, you are also using other parts of your body as well, such as your core. This allows you to get a more efficient, full body workout in, in less time. You are also able to increase the level of difficulty with each exercise by making modifications to the exercise as you get better at it, or by increasing the number of reps or speed of a particular exercise. The other thing I like about TRX is that you can workout anywhere with it, provided you have something to suspend the cables from. That means you can take these cables and workout outside on a sunny day, and get a killer full body workout, while catching some rays (wearing SPF of course).
Since workout with the TRX with Rick Bulley, a personal trainer, he has started a TRX class here in Vancouver at Steve Nash Fitness World. I urge you to try it out so you can see how amazing this workout is, and so you can spice up your workout routine. The details are below:
