For a functional workout that manipulates your body through multiple angles while testing your strength and endurance, the suspension trainer is hard to beat.
Since a previous post mentioned the latest in TRX suspension trainers, the TRX Force, this post is for those wondering if they should shell out the extra 20-40 odd dollars for this package. Here is a breakdown of the differences between two popular packages:
TRX Home Training System
This TRX bundle has the addition of a TRX Door Anchor
for use on any sturdy door. Same effectiveness as if you were
training in a high-performance training center.
For $199 retail, it includes:
-The bright yellow TRX P2
-TRX Door Anchor
-A Basic training DVD, which, if you have never
used a suspension trainer before is anything but
basic. Not hard to learn, but cutting edge stuff.
65 minutes long.
-A quick start manual.
-1 year warranty.
The TRX Force:
Well, for starters, they gave it that cool desert beige, that's $20
worth for me right there! The Force includes:
-The full bodyweight training program using the TRX Tactical Suspension Trainer T1 Model.
The training program, "The TRX Force Training DVD & Military Fitness Guide," is a thorough 12 week workout routine, and contains over 2 hours of content.
-The Force also includes a door anchor, something you should not buy this unit without.
If the main physical difference is color, the level of strength and muscular endurance enhancement is more advanced with the Force dvd's. Quality is always a priority, with each unit undergoing a four point quality inspection process, and backed with a 1 year warranty.
So judge for yourself. Check out the videos below, then follow the links. Watch out though, I promise you are not going to want to leave this little two pound gym behind when you walk out the door.
