TRX Training

Functional strength training should be a fundamental part of any endurance athletes overall program. Not only strengthening, but improving the synchronization of sport-specific movement and power production, all exercises should translate to improved endurance movement. The best tool we have found, to sit at the center of any program, is the TRX suspension trainer and TRX rip trainer. These tools are easy to use, always progressive in nature, and can be applied to the training of a professional athlete, or newbie fitness enthusiast, with similar effect and benefit. A perfect and portable support to all your endurance training needed to improve.
