Great TRX Video with Detailed Instruction!

TRX Force-Better Fitness Product than TRX Pro or...?

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.

Portable Functional Fitness

One of the most functional tools to come on the market in the past decade is the TRX suspension trainer.  TRX has taken the concept of portable fitness, coupled it with the effectiveness of gymnastics rings, and added some vital innovations to it as well.


Three design elements that differentiate the suspension training systems of Fitness Anywhere are the portability, quick strap adjustment, and foot straps.  The list could go on, but let's start with those:


-Portable Fuctional Workout:  


This system only weighs about  3lbs., and is easily packed into a small backpack or purse.  It sets up nearly anywhere, and does not require a lot of space to use.  The exercise dvd included with Fitness Anywhere's suspension trainers illustrates dozens of exercises; these can be modified to train for any activity, or make up your own.


-Quick adjusting straps mean the system can be changed in seconds to increase or decrease the level of difficulty, or to switch to another exercise.


 -Foot Straps make it possible to do some unique exercises as well as increase the angle of decline push-ups and do exercises like the suspended jackknife push-ups, all while keeping the top of your foot comfortable.   


Fitness Anywhere: Make your body your machine.


It's good to know how much quality goes into the products from Fitness Anywhere.  From the substantial strength of the nylon webbing material to the dynamic training dvd's, they show integrity in everything they do.  It keeps getting better, too.  The latest is the TRX Force, a beefed up military beige package offering additional educational dvd's with your purchase.

One more thing, if you have not seen the TRX in action, you must watch the video below-inspirational footage.
