I have always supported opinion that you can make yourself fit without any equipment whatsoever. I exercise regularly using just my body weight as resistance to add strengthening benefits.

HOWEVER...

I also have a weakness to trying new things out, varying my exercise regime and generally seeking new thrills. Did some research before Christmas, wrote a letter to Santa (My Sister and her Hubby) and here is what I got:

THE  ALL MIGHTY TRX SUSPENSION TRAINER

What is TRX?

It is a non stretchy double handed band that you attach to a bolt, stud, wall or your bedroom door to give you a one stop TRAINING STATION that is designed to target ALL MUSCLES IN YOUR BODY!!!

It was invented by Randy Hetrick - US Navy SEAL, who is also a CEO of  Fitness Anywhere,Inc

Attention!!!
If you are feeling discouraged by the fact it needs some fitting - stop right there! It requires minimum effort and some common sense to make it your home gym in no time! Even a DIY DUMMY like me could do it - so can you!


TRX  Suspension Trainer comes in a box with the following additional  items:

* Compact Mesh Carry Bag
*A DVD with 65 minute Introduction to Suspension Training (TRX Set Up and use Clinic, 40 minute real time workout)
*Booklet with Quickstart & Workout Guide
*Information booklet (shop, train, connect)
*Accessory Door Anchor (mine came with this item, usually it is sold separately)




How much does it cost?

Although I was lucky enough to get my TRX TRAINER as a gift, I would still consider spending money on it. This is a real investment in your health. The full home kit will cost you about £127 from authorised UK retailer http://www.wickedfitness.co/products-page/ but you may wish to shop on  EBAY or AMAZON, just be careful not to buy a fake set. 


What is the buzz about?

TRX suspension kit is a GENIUS INVENTION that will suit modern lifestyles of nowadays busy people, from stay at home mums to businessmen travelling all year round.

Key Benefits:
- portable, light equipment you can travel with (you can take it outdoors too)
- covers all aspects of body  fitness (trains your endurance, strength, explosiveness, agility and flexibility)
- is suitable for beginners as well as for advanced athletes
- can be a great assistant when you are training a specific, demanding sport (i.e. Tennis, Martial Arts, Running, Rugby or Trathlons)
- speeds up visible results of your efforts
- you save your precious time by working out for as little as 20 minutes at a time (required minimum)
- you can perform an array of exercises so you won't get bored
- helps you with functional training (everyday physical tasks will be a piece a cake)
- erases your risks of injury in  other activities you take part
- makes you ENERGIZED, HAPPY, FITTER, MORE BEAUTIFUL/HANDSOME, HUNGRY (for life), KINDER just to name a few.

How do I use my TRX suspension trainer?


Although there are certain guidelines as of how to use this non stretchy band safely and effectively, I wouldn't be myself if I didn't have my own way of utilising TRX.


My idea for a perfect workout with TRX Trainer is as follows:

! Warm Up (jumping jacks, dancing to favourite tune, anything that increases your heart rate slightly)
! Start (perform 45 seconds high interval,  running in spot,drive your knees high, rest 15 seconds)
! TRX assisted squats (45 seconds)


!Rest ( 15 seconds)
!Running in spot, high knees ( 45 seconds)
!Rest (15 seconds)
!TRX assisted chest press



!Rest (15 seconds)
!Burpees (45 seconds)
!Rest (15 seconds)
!TRX assisted suspended crunches (45 seconds)




!Rest (15 seconds)
!Explosive squat jumps (45 seconds)
!Rest (15 seconds)
!TRX assisted back rows


! Rest (2 MINUTES AND REPEAT THE WHOLE CIRCUIT ONCE OR TWICE AGAIN)

PLEASE DO NOTE THAT ABOVE WORKOUT IS DESIGNED FOR ADVANCED EXERCISERS AND IF YOU ARE A BEGINNER, THEN SHORTEN YOUR HIGH INTERVAL LENGTH TO 20-30 SECONDS, AND MODIFY YOUR BODY ANGLE WHEN USING YOUR TRX. (THE SMALLER THE ANGLE BETWEEN YOUR BODY AND THE FLOOR, THE EASIER THE EXERCISE IS)


I  hope you enjoyed my review, remember, there is NOT MUCH PREPARATION NEEDED before any type of workout, so make sure you start now. 

Next week, another article on how to use household treasures in high intensity interval workout. Watch this space carefully! :)

P.S. Just to avoid confusion, there is another product on the UK market at the moment that uses the same name - TRX2- It is an anti hair loss supplement for men. Check it out too.
