Hello Linda Steffey,
I move participants through like clockwork on the TRX and in between the TRX stations. You are limited only by your imagination. You can set up a cardio station like a step/jump rope/jump jax, etc. You can also set up the body weight station/rubber resistance and even stretching kept to 10 seconds on a body part.
Enjoy your classes,
Natalie aka NAPS 2 B Fit.
Circuit, circuit, circuit.
I like to pair with sand bells, ViPR, bodyweight training, HIIT intervals, etc.
Partner 1 = TRX exercise 30-45 seconds while partner is doing an opposing muscle group on the floor or with alternate equipment. Then switch. When I have a big class (big = 8+ for me because I sell this as small group training so I prefer 6), I keep the exercises very simple and only two stations – a TRX station and a non-TRX station (but actually I use CrossCore not TRX because I prefer that product). When I have a normal to small class, I will sometimes do a 3-station circuit – TRX, sand-bell, HIIT drill.
I have tons of examples of this. I’ll dig some up from my youtube channel.
Just like Christine said, we have often done a TRX Fusion class when we have more attendees than TRX stations where we would have half the class on TRX while the other half were doing another format. We found additional core work seemed to be the best option for our group.
Good luck and glad you’re having the problem of more people that equipment!
