I believe that ‘suspension training’ will continue to be a method of training in the future. Because of it’s versatility and mobility, I think that it will always have a place in most trainers’ tool kits of equipment.
Like many of the others, I have been using TRX suspension training for several years as a primary component of training personally and for clients. It’s versatile, easy to set-up and use , and provides a foundation for functional training. It can be used safely and effectively by virtually anyone… the key is proper instruction and exercise progression. I feel TRX suspension training has lasting power.
The TRX Suspension Trainer is here to stay forever because is the original, best-in-class workout system that leverages gravity and your bodyweight to perform hundreds of exercises. You’re in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise – because you can simply adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance.
The TRX Suspension Trainer:
Delivers a fast, effective total-body workout
Helps build a rock-solid core
Increases muscular endurance
Benefits people of all fitness levels (pro athletes to seniors)
Can be set-up anywhere (gym, home, hotel or outside)
By utilizing your own bodyweight, the TRX Suspension Trainer provides greater performance and functionality than large exercise machines costing thousands of dollars.´╗┐´╗┐
I hope this info can hep you to answer you question.
I have been doing suspension training for many years, and it is an integral part of my training. Personally, I do not use the TRX but the OMGYM http://www.omgym.com/ which I find more flexible than the TRX. It does all of what the TRX does but a whole lot more.
Suspension training is definitely a keeper.
