TRX. The TRX Suspension trainer was developed by Randy Hetrick and his Navy SEAL teammates. It was a way for he and his teammates to workout during their missions in places where there was no equipment and very limited space.
The TRX started out as a few lengths of parachute webbing hand-stitched together with rubber boat repair tools. Today it is made of durable nylon webbing, heavy gauge nylon thread,non-slip cam buckles, club grade grips and foot cradles. It will support up to 350 pounds.
Suspension training is a collection of unique body weight exercises . The exercises are different than others because 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.
Professional athletes such as Drew Brees and Kendrick Perkins use the TRX as part of their training and have found it very helpful and challenging at the same time.
uring the week of March 5th through the 9th Worcester Fitness will be offering 20 min introductory classes. People who are interested should contact Worcester Fitness directly at 508-852-8209.
