DO WORK with a TRX in your ‘toolbox’



I get asked this all the time: “So you like the TRX ey? So you don’t do Olympic lifts, Squats, Kettlebells etc. anymore??” HUH?? Folks the TRX is a TOOL in your toolbox (well, if it’s not then your toolbox is lacking…). I talk in more detail about what specifically the TRX has brought to our conditioning programs here. As with all of your tools, it has to fit into your program and has to play a role in getting your clients, or in my case, my athletes BETTER. If a particular tool doesn’t meet this simple criteria, it gets axed out of my repetroire. Get with it folks….you owe it to your athletes, clients, and yourself to use the tools that will help you and others reach your goals. If you are pigeon-holing yourself with one or two implements you are NOT going to reach your potential. If you haven’t tried the TRX you need to get out and DO WORK on one….it will expand your exercise options dramatically!

Check out one of my all-time fave TRX videos below as it really illustrates how the TRX integrates so well in comprehensive conditioning programs…..also some good looking peeps =O) HAHA!
