Everyone knows about foam rolling these days—it’s so popular, it’s showing up in the swim community, too. Why? Competitive swimming requires swimmers to train or compete on consecutive days, often under conditions of fatigue. This impacts a swimmer's ability to train hard or compete. Plus, it doesn't matter how strong and powerful a swimmer you are—if you don't have good range of motion in your joints and muscle flexibility, it’s harder to achieve a streamlined position in the water. Using the TRX Rocker and other self-myofascial release tools could be an effective method for optimising training efforts.
“The one thing I take on vacation is my TRX,” Luiza Silva said. “I just know I can get a workout, and I can get it wherever I am.”
The leaves may be starting to turn but the great outdoors is still calling for you to explore. Good news—TRX has everything you need to power your fitness the whole way, no matter the destination, no matter how far you travel. In honour of our belief that fitness should fit your life, we’ll show you how easy it is to move, sweat, train (and track it all) on the go with your TRX Suspension Trainer.
We’ve all met the people who never miss a workout, even on vacation. If you own a set of TRX straps, you might even be one of those people. With a TRX Suspension Trainer, working out on the road is easy and—dare we say?—fun. If you like hammering out reps on your straps at home, just wait until you set up your Suspension Trainer at the beach, in a forest, or on a mountain top. Need to see it to believe it? Check out the picturesque makeshift gyms these TRX fans found.
When you start using a TRX Suspension Trainer, you’re laser-focused on your form, the difference it makes when you're closer or farther away from your anchor point, and the ease of working out anywhere. But, once you get the hang of things, you might find yourself busting out some TRX party tricks (sometimes at actual parties!). While these moves are unlikely to make it into your daily workout routine, they’re worth a try when you want to experiment with TRX for Fun.
As you keep training every day, you might find that your fitness goals are changing, or that what was once challenging to do, is a whole lot easier to accomplish! From trying to hold your plank a little longer, to beating Jay Brockway at the TRX Handstand Push-Up Challenge, no goal is too far-fetched, and no goal is too small.
London-based TRX On Demand Instructors, Niko Algieri and Jay Brockway, go headstand-for-headstand in a brotherly challenge to see who can knock out more reps of the TRX Headstand to Push-Up on a TRX Suspension Trainer. Who do you think will emerge the champion? And how many do you think they'll successfully complete?
