TRX System Review
As a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, this piece of equipment is a go to piece for me and my clients. My clients are thrilled when I show them how they are improving in their strength and endurance. I love it for myself! It is a must buy!!!
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 Suspension Trainer 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.
Jungle Gym XT review
So, I’ve owned the TRX force kit for about five years, XFit Rings for about three years, and the Lifeline Jungle Gym XT for about a month now, and I have to say the Jungle Gym XT is the Best Over-all product, in almost all categories.
Here’s the preferential order I would put the three products: First place: Jungle Gym XT, Second Place: XFit Rings, and Third Place: TRX. And I’m rating them REGARDLESS OF PRICE!!!!
I purchased this suspension trainer in lieu of a TRX to save some money as I just opened my own personal training studio. I use TRX trainers frequently at another studio I train at but I have to say, the Lifeline system is BETTER and MORE USER FRIENDLY. I also love the stiffer loops by the handles for getting your feet in and put easily.
Question: Is is true that a Navy SEAL developed the TRX?
