TRX Suspension Training Expand answer

Suspension training workouts give participants an edge over conventional strength training because suspension training builds functional strength and improves flexibility, balance, and core stability all at once using the TRX’s single-point attachment for a mix of support and mobility. Suspension training movements are distinguished from traditional exercises in that either the user’s hands or feet are generally supported by a single anchor point while the opposite end of the body is in contact with the ground.

Anyone at any fitness level, including novice exercisers and seniors, can benefit from suspension training since exercises can be modified or intensified based on the client’s needs and goals.

The University Fitness Center offers TRX Suspension Training as part of the personal training service and are limited to one-on-one training only. All assessment and training fees are the same. Contact the front desk to schedule a free short demonstration of TRX Suspension Training.
