Q: What is TRX?
A: TRX stands for Total-body Resistance Exercise, and is an exercise program that uses suspension training and bodyweight to develop strength, balance, flexibility and core muscles. It is a program that is adaptable to any fitness level, so whether you are an active athlete or new to fitness, TRX can give you a fun, effective total-body workout in just 30 minutes.
Q: What kinds of exercises will I do?
A: There are a wide range of exercises you can do with TRX, from strength and cardio to flexibility and balance. During workout sessions, you will work your upper body, lower body and core.
All exercises use the TRX suspension trainer, a system of straps that allows the user to work against their own bodyweight.
Q: Do I have to be an athlete to do TRX?
A: No, you do not! That is one of the great things about TRX—you are in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise. Simply adjusting your body position can make the exercise easier or more difficult. Your TRX instructor can help find what’s right for you!

A: TRX is a great way to get a total-body workout in just 30 minutes. It can help you achieve your goals no matter what your fitness level, whether you are looking to get toned, lose weight or increase your flexibility.
