yes, i do need a home training kit, but i cant decide which one to get, thanks for all the helps.
just bought this and its on its way, being shipped from http://www.trxsuspensionkits.com/trx-home-suspension-training-kit-p2-p-2… can’t wait to try it!
The original TRX without the safety loop at the top of the strap could do one handle work by looping the two straps together in “single handle mode.” Now, with the safety loop, there is no need to double-loop the handles; you merely let go of one handle and use just one handle. So there really isn’t any more or less variety as a result of the safety loop. The TRX was never designed to be “sawed” left, right, left, right.
If you want to do “sawing” (right left right left) type of work or unilateral work, look into a CrossCore (in my opinion, a superior product, to which I switched almost 5 years ago). That equipment is on a pulley that is designed for lengthening one arm while shortening the other arm. Alternating unilateral rows, alternating one arm push-ups, etc.
TRX is a good product. It launched my personal training career. whether you need the home kit, the pro kit, or the tactical kit really depends on what you’re going to use the product for, and how often. I taught TRX classes 6 times a week for four years and didn’t wear one out. I would guess that my original TRXs are relatively comparable to the P2. I have some of the originals that don’t have the safety loop, a few that have the safety loop.
Hello Frye Richard,
I used an older model that lets the strap slide from handle to handle. The newer model has a loop to contain the handles in a centered position. I believe the older model has more options since we can loop the handles for one handle work, anyway. I have not seen or used a P2 model.

I can’t find a “P2” on their site.
I have to say that I’m not fond of their newer buckles, though. We have newer TRXs on our club’s rack that we installed in February. The buckles to adjust the length of the straps are clunky, meaning they’re not as quick to adjust and smooth to adjust as their original buckles.
