Suspension Training

Q: What is TRX Suspension Training?

A: Use your own body weight and gravity to work every muscle in your body with the help of one simple tool. You’re in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise – because you can simply adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance.

The TRX Suspension Trainer:

  • Delivers a fast, effective total-body workout
  • Helps build a rock-solid core
  • Increases muscular endurance
  • Benefits people of all fitness levels (pro athletes to seniors)
  • Can be set-up anywhere (gym, home, hotel or outside)

By utilizing your own bodyweight, the TRX Suspension Trainer provides greater performance and functionality than large exercise machines costing thousands of dollars.

Q: What is Rip Training?

A:  Rip Training utilizes a lever bar and resistance cord to provide a unique mix of rotation, core stability, control, power, strength, mobility, metabolic conditioning, balance and coordination challenges. TRX has developed a wide assortment of unique, leverage-variable resistance exercise movements.

Life and sport require that we be able to both control and produce rotational force. Rip Training utilizes the same asymmetrical loading we encounter every day. Whether you’re carrying groceries, picking up your child, throwing a ball, or performing athletic movements such as lacrosse, swimming, running, golfing, and biking, your body is always producing rotation or controlling externally-induced rotation.

Rip Training provides a simple, effective method to integrate rotational movements into training with the ability to layer on complexity to suit your goals.

Q: Why is Suspension and Rip Training different than Traditional Exercise?

A: Traditional weight training often only works one muscle at a time, while Suspension and Rip Training focuses on total body strength training, moving through multiple planes of motion and works multiple muscles and joints-all at the same time.

Q: What can you expect in a TRX Training Center Workout?

A: During the TRX Workout you will perform upper and lower body exercises that activate your core and allow you build strength, improve flexibility, balance and core stability. Our variety of exercises and classes will give you an effective, total body workout in each class with no chance of boredom.

Q: How do I get started?

A: Please email Jesse@turnupfitnesssa.com to schedule a Getting Started class. You will learn the fundamentals of TRX Suspension Training and Rip Training which will allow your first class to be one to remember.

Q: What if I cannot schedule a Getting Started class?

A: If your schedule doesn’t allow you to make it to a Getting Started session, please view the class schedule and register for any of the classes. We suggest Body Blast, but please plan to show up to your first class early in order to talk with the class trainer and get acquainted with the equipment.

Q: Do I have to sign up in advance?

A: While it is not required, it is highly recommended that you sign up in advance, as space is limited.

Q: What should I wear?

A: Please wear athletic clothes and shoes. And don’t forget your water!
