TRX Training Kit | Product Review

By | January 13, 2016

The TRX training kit is fairly new in the fitness world compared to equipment such as free weights and cardio machines. The popularity of suspension training has boomed and most gyms and health clubs will have them in place for customers and personal trainers to give their clients a powerful workout.

The Birth Of TRX Training Kit


The story behind TRX is fascinating. In 1997 Ex-Navy Seal Randy Hetrick was on a training mission in Southeast Asia. The mission was to board a cargo ship and take over it, however, the seals ended up being in a warehouse for longer than expected, looking for alternatives to their usual body weight exercises performed daily to keep the seals in top shape.

The mission, board and take over a cargo ship. However, the seals ended up being in a warehouse for longer than expected, looking for alternatives to their usual body weight exercises performed daily to keep the seals in top shape.

Randy found some cords in the warehouse and cut the cord into 3 strips and tied them into a Y shape, he wrapped one end around a door and held the other two ends in his hands, at this stage Randy just played with them and testing different moves with fascination the other seals had watched Randy and started going on the cords trying and testing new movements as well, it quickly becomes known as the “gizmo”.

The birth of TRX happened right there as a way to pass the time and an alternative to your standard body weight exercises the military adopt. After leaving the military Randy pursued his passion and developed the cord into TRX by working with conditioning coaches at Stanford University.

The TRX is now used by the military worldwide and even elite athletes, so why is the TRX so respected?

My First Time Experience With TRX. It Was Painful!


I can remember the first time I saw the TRX there were four or five straps hanging from this big silver frame, I said to one of my collogues it looks like a torture instrument, “it is” he said with an evil grin on his face.

The first proper training session I had on it was intense, but in a good way, I could feel it hitting muscles I obviously hadn’t used in a long time as they were screaming at me in the form of burning!.

I started experimenting with TRX trying different methods of HIIT and muscular endurance exercises, I noticed results and I noticed them fast, I wasn’t getting bigger but I was losing body fat and the muscle definition was a lot more noticeable, in fact, people were commenting on my new transformation.

To say I was pleased was an understatement these light weight straps was doing everything I wanted, losing weight and toning me up without adding any bulk, I quickly become addicted to TRX, without a doubt these are my best piece of equipment there such a powerful piece of kit.

The fact the light weight you can pack them into a rucksack with room to spare there fantastic, try putting a set of dumbells in your bag and see how far you get.

If you think about if your goal is anything BUT getting bigger these nylon straps crucify a pair of dumbells in every way I can stress how good these are and for the price an absolute bargain.

P.S I bought a cheaper version to workout on and it snapped resulting in me doing a face plant TRX is the BEST  and worth the extra money

That’s me testing my legs out after 2 games of tennis


What is TRX?

 

TRX is a light weight heavy duty nylon strap that can easily be put into your bag or in storage, usually, comes in a distinctive black and yellow colour and is Y Shape one end is the anchor point the other is where your hand and feet harnesses are.

How does TRX work?

 

The TRX is designed to suspend from any were with an anchor point or anywhere you can loop the straps, with its thick heavy duty nylon straps it really does have safety in mind. The last thing you want to do is face plant like I did because I used a cheaper version of TRX.

Due to its light weight and its ability to be easily stored you can pretty much take it any were with you,if you want to work out at the gym, park, home or even a friends house the design makes this possible.

You can also subscribe for free at TRX website and receive workouts


 

Benefits of TRX

 

These suspension straps are second to none when it comes to working the whole body, you can use this kit to lose weight, tone up, improves fitness, balance, endurance and much more, in fact, the only thing it won’t help achieve is bulking up, but will help towards that goal.

If equipment is good enough for special forces and elite athletes then you really should take notice if you’re not using TRX then you’re certainly hindering yourself.

If you want to lose weight or tone up then TRX has to be in your arsenal of fat busting tools it kills two birds with one stone with quick calorie busting you will see results rather quick.

TRX will engage your core effectively helping you sculpt that lean midsection were it can be very difficult to shift that stubborn belly fat.

FAQ’S

Are they easy to use?

The simplicity of just anchoring the straps make this easy to use for absolute beginners and professionals alike.

I’ve heard there are a lot of fake TRX on the market is this true?

Like most top products you do get fakes but the link that is provided takes you to TRX supplier on Amazon.

What is maximum user weight?

It takes up to 350lbs (154kg) and has been tested to 4 x that amount and passed.

 Not Sure How To Use TRX Training Kit

 

If your not sure how to use this suspension kit then watch the video below, In this video Randy gives a brief explanation of the birth of TRX and takes you through some moves you can perform and what areas of your body it will target.

 


What Others Say About TRX Training Kit

Don’t just take my word for how great TRX are, here are some verified customers who bought this from Amazon.

As an avid gym-rat who gets a little twitchy when he misses a workout, I was looking for something I could use to get a good strength training workout while traveling on vacation or for work. The personal trainers at our gym introduced me to the TRX system and I ordered one to give it a try.

In the few short weeks I’ve owned it, I have been able to take the TRX Home Training Bundle on a camping trip, on a business trip, and to work with me for a 2-day IT system crash event.

While camping I was able to use trees and the rafters in a pavilion to support the TRX system, and found both made easy platforms for great workouts. At hotels and while trapped at work for two days, I was able to use the door mount to sneak in some workouts, and I found that platform to be stable as well.

So it seems to me you can almost always find a place to mount the TRX system, as long as you exercise a little common sense about doing so safely. And once it’s mounted securely, the TRX system is quite versatile, and allowed me to perform many exercises to get a completely taxing strength workout. The system is simple to use and well-marked for making quick changes between exercises. For the configurations that are less intuitive, the included book provides good illustrations, tips, and tricks.

The only reason I withheld a 5th star on this review is because of the way the TRX system is constructed. The materials and workmanship seem solid to me. But the product is finished in such a way that very little of the system is modular. That is to say, if you were ever to wear out a pad on one of the handles, replacing it would require a lot of craftsmanship, not just a simple swap-out. So I expect that needing to replace any component on the TRX system would likely be met with having to replace the whole kit and kaboodle. I think a modular design would allow me to be more aggressive with the unit while making me comfortable I could replace parts fairly inexpensively. (‘Cause let’s face it, nearly $200 for nylon and ingenuity is pushing it anyway – Chris Lavesser Amazon.com

“I have frozen shoulder and my therapist recommend that I get one to help with my theory at home. It works fine and shoulder is about 90 % mobility. I have used all the therapy classes that my insurance will pay for so now finishing at home with the TRX”  – Virgie Dawson Amazon.com

Conclusion

 

TRX Training Kit should be at the very top of your weight loss wish list. When looking to buy any fitness products you need to be wary, especially when buying the TRX training kit as there are many fakes on the market that could easily result in you getting injured. If you click the link at the bottom of this page it will take you to the official TRX shop on Amazon, once you buy it you can verify your investment with TRX and get your hands on lots of tutorials.

I have been using suspension training for years and I will continue to use them, their fun, functional and extremely effective no matter what fitness goals you have.

The fact you can use them anywhere make these a must have in your weight loss arsenal, there really isn’t any excuse. I know people who use them on the lunch break as they really are that quick easy and versatile.

They may seem costly but they will last a very long time, if you buy cheaper versions you will more than likely have to buy again, trust me, my cheaper version  lasted one month and they were a well-known fitness brand.

    Hey, first of all thanks for this great, interesting and very informative article on trx.
    I have heard of trx before, but never really tried it out before. I always was skeptical, because trx is quite expensive. Would you recommend this more than just a pair of gymnast rings, which you also can hang almost anywhere?

    1. Steven

      Hi Los,

      I like to think of things as value for money rather than cheap or expensive. With TRX they are good value.

      last a lifetime and give you amazing results. the initial expense is rather cheap if you was to compare to a treadmill for instance.

      As regards to the Olympic rings they are pretty much the same. However, TRX are more versatile in regards to how many exercises you can.

    Your TRX seems awesome for those who whats flexibility in their exercise routines. Do you ship to Asian countries other than US or UK ? Can we find it in any retail sports shop in Asian countries ? It would be a huge market for those in the fitness industry in this part of the world.

    Great article! I’m always looking for something new to try at the gym. At first I thought this was just going to be something for guys, but after watching the videos and seeing the picture of a female using too, I definitely think anyone could benefit from this – provided they use it in the right way. Glad you mentioned about getting what you pay for too – I think that’s an important point, and you shouldn’t scrimp on something that you are exercising with – especially if it can cause injury if it’s not up to the right standard. Are there some common copy-cat articles out there that you can highlight to be on the lookout for? Think I’ll give this a try – I need something new for some new motivation!

      Its not so much articles you have to watch out for its more people looking for a quick buck, and to be honest most writers probably dont research there reviews enough.

    This product looks very useful especially for building the muscle strength all over the body. I have seen many celebrities working out with TRX training kit and I must say it does not look like an easy workout :).

    Hi Steven,

    I personally used to work with this product at the gym.

    And it’s one of the fastest equipment to lose weight along with building muscles.

    You can work with it on any body parts, but you need to do this right, and the video that you put on your page are showing exactly how.

    I hope that who will want to exercise at home and lose weight will buy it. I know that with the right diet and with TRX they will get perfect results.

    Thanks for the great review.

    Hi Steven,

    I’m just unsure of how I could manage the ropes as a beginner to the system.

    I have a ton of work out systems, including some from Jillian Michaels and Shaun T. But my favorite is T25– which has more of a standard “workout” feel to it; however, now I’m thinking about the TRX Training Kit.

    Looking forward to giving it a try for sure.
    Thanks for the review.

    I’ve been wanting to lose weight at home for the longest time ever. I have of course, tried with dieting and videos to work out at home. They’ve helped but they tend to get boring after a while because it’s the same thing you go through every single time you work out. But the TRX seems to be used in very different ways in the pictures. I like what I’m seeing. I will definitely be looking into getting me the TRX. Thanks for sharing this!

    Really interesting. I knew about TRX but did not know the history of how it got started.
    I haven’t tried this kind of training yet but I may consider it. I know my gym does have it but you have to make an appt.
    I heard it was very challenging. Since I do have a back problem I will research this further before trying it.
    I can see how it would really trim down the core!

      Hi Cynthia,

      I would make that appointment! under the right supervision this can help stregthen the muscles to support your back and ease the problem.

      Also because your working with your own weight and you control how much of it it shouldnt affect your back

    The portability of the trx training kit I can see as a great thing to have when going places. There is not always the opportunity to be able to go into a gym and even when you can the equipment can be very limited.

    Even if they have the equipment, you end up waiting for pieces as others may be using it.

    Having your own trx can eliminate all those problems and you can still have a workout your familiar with at any time.

    I’ll need to check into this some more.

      Hi David,

      There is no hard fast rule of how many times you should use something per week but most of us in the industry agree at least 4 30 minute workouts a week at a moderate rate.

      With the TRX at first you will be sore but soon get used to them and once you start seeing the results and you will you will want to use them more.

      However anything is better than nothing when it comes to losing body fat, to fit a couple of half hours in is relatively easy!

      I bought mine awhile back (still going strong as well) and they did come with basic moves, however since everything is gone digital in this day and age you can go to TRX website and it has specific programmes to invest in for something like $5

    Thanks for sharing such a great review on the TRX training kit. This is actually the first time I’m hearing about this, I workout often, and I think it’s a must have for me! The origins behind the TXR is also very cool. I think it would be a very good investment.

      Hi Samuel,

      TRX will add a whole new dimension to your training and if you haven’t used one or haven’t used one lately then you will be aching and sore.

      As far as investment goes you won’t regret this purchase.

    Hi Steven

    Great Article. My husband bought a TRX last year and I have to say, It’s the coolest piece of equipment ever. I literally couldn’t move properly for about two days after my first try and even my husband who’s been weight training for years was aching all over by the following day. It’s a seriously good piece of equipment that anyone can use.

      Hi Jessie,

      That’s brilliant news abut your husband with his experience with TRX, I know how he felt is i too felt the same after using them.

      You was lucky with not being able to move for two days I knew people who have had that feeling up to 5-6 days

    Thank you for explaining all the details!
    I go to the gym a lot and have always wanted to try it.
    I never actually started it because it looks like you have to get a personal trainer and I don’t think I can pay for the gym and also private lessons as well…But now getting a home gym kit looks like a better option for me, just wondering if it wouldn’t be too difficult to use when no personal trainer around??

      Hi Jaclyn,

      TRX suspension straps, most trainers will be happy to give you a quick demonstration on them if you ask with out a cost, alternatively look on you tube some great videos on there

    Hi Steven,

    I found your article very interesting and helpful, I was absorbed by the reading!
    The TRX training kit looks really simple to use! I was just looking for a gym instrument that could help me release stress and strengthen muscles. What I really like about this product is that it doesn’t take a lot of space and it is easy to bring it almost everywhere!
    I have a question, though. What is the delivery time, please?
    Thank you in advance

    I have been noticing a lot of gyms incorporating suspension training equipment. i always wonder whether there was a difference between suspension equipment and resistance bands? Do they basically have the same concept or are they completely different. I think this could be a great gym cycle for me for a few weeks.

      Hi Xander,

      There is a diffrence between suspension trx training kit and resistance bands, you can perform some exercises the same but very limited with resistance bands.

      You could say the main difference is suspension kits uses you body weight, resistence bands just provide resistance within the elasticity in the band. also you can do way more exercises on the TRX

      Example being, a bicep curl with TRX would use your body weight the further you lean back the harder it becomes as more weight is placed on the bicep, also as its unstable it incorparates more muscles in to the exercise

      The resistance band will only provide the resistance that particular band is set up for and isnt unstable so will only isolate the muscle you focuses on so wont hit quite as hard, not to say there not good but as they are in there own right.

      hope this clears it up for you.

    I personally love the TRX training kit. I purchased one last year because I have to travel for work often but didn’t want to let this keep me from exercising. Trust me – it’s the most effective portable workout in the market today. I definitely agree that it should be on the top of anyone’s list of fitness products. Worth every cent. Thanks for sharing!

    Hello,
    Excellent review on your product. I have used this a few times and it is phenomenal. I see a lot of personal trainers use this with their clients all the time. I never knew the story behind it until I read your review and it is fascinating. I am not surprised that you gave it a perfect rating.This training tool in my opinion is best for people who have worked out before and are in somewhat in good shape to begin with. Best of luck.

    Hello,

    I found the first page really amazing because it captures eyes immediatly!!

    Exercises as well are really well organized and interesting and I will include some of them in my personal daily training! Further more it is good to see you keep an eye on prices, if they’re changing or not, in order not to “trick” possible customers. Well done!

    Hello there Varley. Very nice TRX review. I’m quite curious what’s the meaning behind those 3 letters. Anyway back to track, I love your review and how you wrote it. Entertaining at the same time very informative.

    I liked the history of how the TRX was invented or discovered by that Randy guy. It’s really fascinating how you can create something massive out of creativity.

    I have seen many of these kind of exercise and tried it a little bit and I agree it was a torture instrument. I almost did a face plant myself. LOL!

      Thank you Norstad,

      I love the history of TRX as well, Because the training exercise was delayed we now have a an amazing product we can all benefit from.

      Do you own a TRX training kit yourself?

    Looks like a good piece of kit. I would look at using this whilst travelling and whilst at home. I like the fact that we need to actually get off our bum to lose weight, not just buy the equipment and think it will happen.

    I wish you all the luck with this kit.

    Regards,

    This TRX training kit looks like a legit way to loss wight and get fit. Thanks for he recommendation. A lot of the time when I find myself getting a little bit out of shape, it would be nice to have some structure in my workout routines so that I can actually know what progress I’m undertaking.

    I have not heard of this training device before but I like what I have read. I appreciate that it seems to support a variety of movements and probably reduces stress on the joints while still getting a great workout.
    I will have to check this out further. Thanks for the review!

    Hi Steven,
    That was an excellent review of a brand new product designed to get a person in supreme condition all while taking inches of his/her belly.

    I remember years ago (back in the mid – late 1970’s) while running track in h.s. and college, with the now completed outdated notion that simply doing sit-ups would do the trick and flatten a person’s belly down to the six-pack abs physique. Now of course it it a known fact that simple sit-ups do not engage all of the abdominal muscles to the point where body fat in that area will be eliminated.

    The fact that you also have used this new mechanism on your own in workouts Steven added to the validity to your article. You found out what it takes to put in the work needed to produce positive results. Too far often I read of reviews of a product written by people along this line where, and because they did not try it out themselves, I came away not completely convinced. You knew what you were talking about, because you have used this piece of equipment.

    You also added much to the review by specifically discussing the individual who invented it and the incredible story to which he did so in a Navy Seal exercise that had elements of real danger to the particular mission.

    I also took the time to convert the price in British pounds that you had listed for this device – 149 pounds and converted it to U.S. dollars. Coming in around $211 this represents fair value for this product that is the real deal – and not some rip off piece of equipment that I sometimes see on television that has the word “phony” written all over the product.

    Can I assume that the kit would also come with a packet of training information about just how to do exercises that would really help sculpt a person’s abs/stomach?

    A great article, Steven. Thank you for sharing it and making readers aware of the product!

    The TRX Training Kit review is very interesting. I must also admit that it is an alternative means of working out where there is not weights or cardio machines to use. I really did enjoyed reading through this post and have also learned one or two things.

    I will surely this stuff out because it appears to be handy…

    Hey Steven, I’ve actually never seen the TRX before, and have been looking for something I may be able to use indoors as I travel a lot. I think this could be perfect.

    Hi Steven, the trx training kit looks like a very cool product. I very much like how its mobile and easy to store. I also like how it helps you use your own body to do the work.
