5 Ways To Get Strong with TRX Straps

February 25, 2021

Did you know that TRX stands for “total-body resistance exercise”?

TRX straps were invented by a former U.S. Navy Seal, who recognized the powerful results of using body weight and gravity as resistance. Because the straps are suspended, there’s an incredible amount of core activation that occurs during TRX training.

These straps, available at all three CA fitness centers, offer endless ways to get creative and build SEAL-worthy strength. If you’re intimidated by the TRX straps, don’t be! No matter your fitness level, they’re an amazing tool to add to your workout arsenal. Best of all, they’re adjustable so you can vary your positions and intensity level.
