TRX Suspension Trainer Review

Our TRX suspension trainer review highlights the TRX as the best in the market, and it is also our 2017 Editors’ Choice at the Best Suspension Trainer.  

Everything about the TRX screams authority for many good reasons.

Every inch of this fully adjustable system has been meticulously designed for long term use.

The TRX is the original suspension training system created by Navy Seal Randy Hetrick and currently used by the United States Military). This Suspension Trainer has also been sold to the MLB, NBA, NHL and NFL. It is used by 40,000 GYMS around the world, as well as by over 150,000 TRX certified Personal Trainers.


What’s in the box:

  • TRX P2 Suspension Trainer
  • TRX Door Anchor
  • Mesh Carry Bag
  • 35 Page Workout Guide
  • 65-Minute Basic Training DVD
  • 2 Bonus Workouts

 

Out of the box.

TRX has got the important stuff right.

The quick strap carabiner is big and strong and fast. An added feature of this carabiner is the allen key used to lock the carabiner to its anchor. Ideal for professional gyms or public areas.

The straps are thick and sturdy webbing.

The adjustable tabs are highlighted in yellow for quick adjustments.

I am particularly fond of the reliable and ergonomic handles. The aim for Suspension Training should be to workout hard. Most of your suspension training will be spent on these handles and you don’t want harsh and cheap handles slowing down your progress.

The workout guide and DVD cover how to set up the equipment and basic exercises.

Where the TRX suspension trainer really gains an edge is the enormous range of YouTube videos providing TRX exercises and guides. The colour coding of the TRX suspension trainer is designed to assist users to follow professional trainers. To follow the vast array of TRX youtube exercise guides I would recommend against using an alternate Suspension Trainer.
