I have talked before on how you don’t really need a personal trainer and sometimes it easier not to have a gym membership. To say the least, I am a big advocate for getting in shape on your own. There are so many tools out there that allow you to get in great shape. I am a HUGE fan of one tool that is quickly rising to the main stream of working out on your own.

Get with the Movement

The TRX Suspension Trainer is a very basic little gizmo. It is some straps with handles that you can attach literally anywhere and get a full body workout in. The TRX system was create by a Navy SEAL who stitch some parachute string together to get a workout while on duty and created an incredible workout tool.

I don’t care if you are a stay at home mom who needs to get a good workout it, an overweight student who needs to lose a few pounds, a middle aged super athlete or any of the combination, you can use this tool.

The coolest thing that has me hooked on the TRX system is the ability to seamless move from one exercise to another. Since it is easy to go from biceps to triceps, or chest to back, or legs to core, or core to back, or back to biceps, and so on, you can create a killer strength training circuit.

The second coolest thing is the whole “gym-in-a-bag” concept. Basically, if you have a door, or a tree, or light post, or anything solid you can anchor to, you can get a great workout. Garage, parks, hotel rooms, bus stops, beaches, child’s soccer game, there really is no limit to where you can get a workout in. It is just a great all around tool.

But I know people still are skeptic. It is a lot of money to spend on a tool and what if you don’t like it? Fitness Anywhere (the parent company of TRX) has a 30 day 100% money back guarantee.

Some of you still don’t trust that. Some of you are saying “100% minus shipping and handle” and what not. If you still are unsure about this product, but you are truly interested in trying it, email me at info@nintemanfitness. If you are local, I will meet you somewhere with my TRX in hand and put you through a workout. I will show you how easy it is to set up, take down, and get a great workout in. If you are not local to San Diego, and still want to try, let me know your location and I will search your area for a TRX trainer that is willing to do the same thing.

You can’t really knock it until you try it. So try it.
