TRX

TRX is one of the industry’s most popular and unique training tools because it uses your own bodyweight and gravity to build strength, balance, and flexibility while being very “easy on the joints.” Work on your pull ups, push-ups, squats and planks while building a strong core in the process. Quick, minor adjustments can make movements easier or more challenging, making it an excellent option for all fitness levels.
