SPRI gravity trainer pro review by Alex:
If you’ve ever looked up how much a TRX system costs, suspension training might seem to be out of reach for you.
The SPRI Gravity Trainer Pro system is more barebones, but is a great way to test the waters.
The quality seems good – I use it several times a week and they show no signs of strain under use.
I am using them suspended from my basement ceiling joists (by looping the strap through itself), and they’ve held up well.

more review from Alex:
The length seems appropriate for all exercises I’m doing. The loop is padded nicely. These are a little different from most budget suspension trainers that have two short straps connected via carabiner to the longer anchor strap. I appreciate the ability to do unilateral work with these. They don’t come with a door cleat which allows them to be used in a larger variety of doorways/hinges.
Review by Sherman:
This unit works well but it can get strained under heavy weight.
The SPRI Gravity training device is well built and supports my large 280lb 6 ft 6 body, but the interior doors that have to support him and the device, not so much. The exterior doors would but they are sealed so tightly there is no room for the straps. Now hotel doors, as they tend to be heavy, have lots of locks, and are not air tight to the frame by any means, would work well with this. In sum, if you are a bigger guy with an average house looking to work out at home, you probably wont get much use out of these. But if you have home equipment but travel a lot and are looking to have easily packable exercise equipment to use in your hotel room, this would be great. If your a tiny person, you can probably get lots of use from this at home.
