Your entire gym in a bag.
That’s what the TRX Home Gym is. At less than 2lbs, this combination of nylon straps and buckles delivers all your strength training needs using only your body weight and the science of gravity. Whether you need targeted workouts on specific muscles or you want a full body workout, you need nothing more than the TRX Home Gym.
As one customer put it, you have to own thousands of dollars’ worth of gym equipment to get the same level of versatility that the TRX suspension training system provides. Not only does it allow a wide range of workouts, it can be used virtually anywhere – in the house, in your backyard, at the park, at the office or even a hotel room.
1. Tough but Lightweight Design
The TRX Home Gym weighs just 1.4lbs. As gym equipment go, this one is unbelievably light. That doesn’t mean it’s not strong or that you need to handle it with caution. A unique design allows the TRX to be incredibly tough without being cumbersome.
The straps are made from light but heavy-duty nylon that can withstand virtually any amount of human force. So don’t worry that your ripped arms will cause the straps to snap or tear.
The lightweight design makes it easy to work the various straps around your body and workout different muscle groups. And when you hit the road, the TRX folds up easily and you can carry it around without feeling any tiresome weight. Try doing that with your barbell weight set.
2. Versatile Workouts
The best part about the TRX Home Gym is how versatile it is when it comes to the number of workouts I can do with it. There are over 300 different weight training workouts and TRX provides guides to 6 of those workouts free of charge.
With just those six selections you can target every muscle group in your body. There is a routine for your chest and back, another for legs and hips, another for your core and one for your entire body.
Normally, you have to invest in several machines to get a proper workout at home: dumbbells, pull-up bar, barbells, weight plates and so on. With the TRX system, you can replace most of these tools and still enjoy effective workouts. This is a big advantage if you don’t have the money to buy a bunch of gym machines or if you travel a lot and cannot carry any heavy equipment with you.
Whether you want to strengthen your arms, expand your chest or build your core strength, the TRX suspension system can help. Just by changing positioning you can target different body areas. You can also increase or reduce difficulty level by adjusting the straps.
Once you have familiarized yourself with the six free routines that come with the package, try to find others that you can do by rigging the straps differently. You’ll be surprised at how much this single workout system can cover.
3. Highly Portable
It can be really difficult to nail down a consistent workout routine when you are always travelling. Not all hotels have gyms and even if they do, they may not have the equipment you need.
The TRX Home Gym is also a travelling gym. It goes with you wherever you are. The included mesh bag makes it easy to stuff the TRX in your travel bag. And because it is so light, you don’t have to worry about over-stuffed or heavy luggage.
One customer notes that, being a diplomat, his schedule is travel-heavy. The TRX system ensures they don’t miss a single workout. Another says she takes hers to the park and another uses his between work breaks.
This level of portability is what makes the TRX so effective in helping you stay fit. It solves most challenges (and excuses) that are preventing you from working out regularly.
And even if you are not travelling or using it at work, you’ll still be grateful for how easy it is to carry the TRX around. You can set it up in different rooms or even carry it outside in a jiffy.
4. Incredibly Easy to Use
The TRX Home Gym comes with a getting started guide with everything you need to begin your workouts. The guide includes instructions on how to set up the straps in different places, how to change positions to vary workouts and difficulty and how to stay safe.
But even without the guide, you will find the TRX system really easy to use. You can set it up quickly using a door, wall or even a tree.
If you run into a problem, there are several videos on the TRX app that can help. You can also contact their customer support for assistance.
5. TRX App
Another free bonus provided along with the TRX Home Gym is the TRX app. This is where you will find six workout guides designed specifically for the suspension system. There is also an entire library full of additional exercises to help you find the combination that is perfect for your needs.
The TRX Home Gym comes with three main accessories.
• A door anchor that allows you to use any sturdy door to hook up the straps. It works with most door types so you can set it up virtually anywhere including at home, hotel room or office.
• A suspension anchor that adds to the functional versatility of the TRX system. The anchor is used to attach the straps on poles, bars, trees and hooks. It comes in handy when you are outdoors.
• A mesh bag for easier storage and portability.
The main concern most customers expressed was that it takes a bit of time to move from one position to another. It’s not as quick as moving from a leg curl machine to a barbell. If you want to target a new section of your muscles, you have to set up the straps again.
But once you get used to it, changing positions takes only a few seconds.
If you are looking for an easy, convenient and effective way to get fit, try the TRX Home Gym. It parks dozens of high powered workouts into a single easy-to-use system. It will help you strengthen your muscles, build up core strength, improve flexibility, boost endurance and have fun while doing it all.
