I’m not one for New Year’s resolutions. Never have been. Never will be. But I do believe in taking advantage of the after-Christmas sales. And it was just that that prompted me to buy these bad-boys.
So as someone who loves the treadmill as my cardio of choice, I’m going to break in these new shoes and walk away my holiday “sins”.
Developed by a Navy SEAL, TRX training is a work-out system that is comprised of nylon straps within a suspension system. It is engineered to provide an all-over body work out that uses one’s own body weight for a maximal effect. It’s transportable and can done in gyms or in homes, with or without trainers.
My friendly Kettlebell trainer got me started on TRX about three years ago and I have been hooked ever since. Using one’s own body weight, the resistance created is only as big (or little) as the user. That means that you’re not using more than your body can handle, thereby decreasing the potential for injury, while getting a fabulous fat-burning work-out. What is also great is that TRX can be done standing or sitting, with limbs or without limbs, and in a gym or in your home
What’s even better is that it works ALL of those things that Spanx can’t fix while giving an all-over body work-out, in an efficiently short amount of time. Biceps bulge. Triceps tone. Pecs perk. And glutes get up-lifted.
From a Limbitless scale (rating it as being prosthetic-user friendly), I’d give it a 5 out of 5! And from a Fabulous scale (rating it as a fitness-friendly work-out), it gets another 5!
