    HELP THE RESISTANCE! REVIEW: TRX - Strong System Suspension Trainer - Black/Yellow BEST BUY Tech Insider Network SUMMARY: Anything that helps get my lazy _ _ _ off the couch is a welcome addition to my fitness routine (or lack thereof) I have lower back pain and I need to do low impact aerobics to strengthen my core. This will help with the resistance part of the exercises I am prescribed. It is very basic but well built. Not that anything is missing, nor are any more bells or whistles needed. It seems expensive but it is versatile and can be used in many configurations depending upon your need. For the price it would have been nice to have ceiling joist mounting hardware included instead of purchased separately. UNBOXING: INITIAL IMPRESSIONS: It was easy to unbox and the included instructions for setup and sample exercises were easy to follow. There is a carrying case for travel and a “Door” connector for using a closed door to attach the unit to for travel. PERFORMANCE / EASE OF USE: It was easy to setup and adjust for my height and planned usage. In my case I ordered a separate ceiling mount (3rd party) and installed it in about 5 minutes. Most of my exercises are laying on a mat, so I taped their sample exercise chart to the wall at ground level, so I could check that I was doing them correctly. It provides a missing level of support / resistance that I need. In the past my physical therapist might have held down my feet for example. Now I can use this for the same function. SUMMARY: I would recommend this for either casual exercise or hard core work outs.

    Workout Training system anywhere

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Safety

    I am satisfied with the TRX Pro 3 suspension trainer kit because I can use it inside, outside, and on the go. When I decide to workout on the go, I look to attach the yellow suspension anchor to a secure anchor point that is strong enough to support my body weight. If working out indoor and my only option is to use doors, I try to use an exterior door because they are stronger than closet or hollow doors. While staying in hotels, I frequently use the outside door since it is heavy-duty. To be safe, I always lock and post a sign, “Do Not Disturb/ Do Not Open.” When I want to workout outside on my yard, I use a concrete beam that is under my lanai. At parks or outdoors adventures, I anchor the TRX to a heavy-duty railing, large tree, or a pole. Anchoring and adjusting the straps is extremely easy; adjustment to lengthen and shortening the TRX is crucial for a safe workout. The handle comes integrated with a foot cradle, which helps the system for thorough training. For the best results, I find a flat surface and an overhead anchor point. Side anchors, such as post, door, or wall hooks, work fine but is a bit challenging to me. Overhead, I feel that it allows me a greater range of motion for many of my exercises. Also, overhead anchoring increases my overall workout results. Overall, I am satisfied with my TRX system because with it any environment can become your gym. It is excellent for traveling or on the go workout. Great concept, turn any area with the straps and your body into a workout station.

    Great portable workout

    Portable

    This system is really nice for a portable workout when traveling or way from home. This is a suspension system so it's not one of those elastic/rubber band type workout. Basically you use your own body as the weights and workout that way. Comes with a nice handy pouch to store everything in. Straps are pretty heavy duty so no worries about them breaking down or anything. Pretty cool overall and hopefully help out for getting into shape in the new year.

    Just the thing I needed

    Posted .

    I found that I really liked these... I don't have to many devices at home since I have a gym membership but I've been starting to run some spartan obstacle races and I found that the gym doesn't have all the different types of exercise I want. This enables me to work on several of those types of exercise in the comfort of my home. I put an anchor bolt from the ceiling in my garage and have been able to do a few strength exercises that I can build up to being able to lift my entire body. The over the door bag that comes with it works extremely well too. Granted make sure you are very light, the door is heavy duty, or you use the side of the door that makes it so that the door presses against the trim... I almost destroyed the first door I put it on. I would easily give the straps a five star review... however, it comes with a code to try an app with exercises and that is were I think it falls a little short. I liked the app itself however I wasn't able to link it to my activity tracker app (even though it auto detected which one I use and asked me to link it). I traced the reason to the simple fact that the app was asking for all permissions and in new android versions developers can't just ask for all permissions they need to ask for each on they need. Overall I really liked these, just the activity tracking from the guided exercises didn't work for me so I couldn't give it a full five star review.. however the physical product itself I really liked.

    Great for work!!

    Posted .

    I got these for work to use at lunchtime. My physical therapist office had a set so I knew how therapeutic they’d be for me. They are great for body weight exercises as well as stretching exercises. I am not good at sitting at a desk all day so these allow me to quickly get some exercise and blood flow while at work. The straps feel very durable unlike resistance band I have used where you’re just waiting for the band to snap violently slap you. I feel very safe exercising with these suspended from my door doing body weight exercises.

    Our doors are not solid wood and I noticed some bowing when putting full weight on the door. However it worked great with the door to our garage and on trees.

    not impressed

    Posted .

    I thought this was some sort of portable work-out system and it is. However, I was not able to find a suitable place in my home where I could use the system without fear of damaging doors and/or trim. I don't recall seeing anything in the product description or on the box that indicated how this thing was supposed to be set up. I thought it was some sort of "elastic or band" resistance and it's just composed of solid straps and your body weight is supposed to create the workout. May work well if you can mount it over a door as instructed but I decided against doing so. If you're not willing to place it over a door or door frame, then keep looking.

    TRX for Training Resistance Exercising

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Portable, Safety, Set up

    I have had experience in strength training by using the resistance of my body weight in exercise, but it has either involved a cumbersome piece of gym equipment that is best left set up, or elastic bands that often wear out and break. The TRX (total-body resistance exercise) Suspension Trainer is a new experience for me and one in which I did not quite know what to expect. It is a different experience in that it is so portable it can be used almost anywhere, indoors or out, and it is not made of elastic that can break and sting you when you least expect it. Instead, it is made of very strong adjustable straps and carabiners, suspension and door anchors that can be used together to train your upper and lower body as you strengthen your core. Repetition is the key to building strong muscles and making the use of the TRX Suspension Trainer a part of your routine allows for strengthening and toning many different muscles on the upper and lower body. As you increase muscle, you will also burn fat. The TRX Strong System comes with the TRX strong suspension trainer that has adjustable straps as well as padded foot cradles and soft foam handles. It also comes with the suspension anchor to secure the trainer indoors and outdoors and a door anchor that can be used at home, but also enables the TRX to be used while on the road in hotels so that it can be a part of your routine daily. All of this is packed in a mesh carrying bag with a user guide poster and a key to access 8 workout videos online. To access the videos (which can be downloaded and saved to your device), the key code along with the serial number must be entered. The serial number can be found on the straps and helps you also register your product for the 1-year warranty and safeguard yourself from counterfeits which might not be made safe and strong like the TRX. Incidentally, the trainer has a maximum weight limit of 350 lbs. I really needed to add this to my daily routine as I don’t always make it to the gym. I am already finding lower back relief by strengthening my core and building muscles in my upper body. The workout videos in the library address exercises for arms and shoulders, chest and back, legs and hips, core, stretch, and includes yoga, tennis, MMA, golf, healthy back, flexibility and endurance. I am very impressed with the TRX Strong System Suspension Trainer and have made it part of my morning routine. It takes less time to target certain muscle groups and implement a routine of repetitive exercises that addresses those muscle groups than it does to drink a cup of coffee.

    Great portable workout app

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Design, Ease of use, Portable

    As someone completely unfamiliar with strength training (only workout I've ever done is running), I found the app based approach of the TRX Strength Suspension system easy to understand and get behind. The video workouts are great and all very modern and well instructed. I travel frequently and love that I can put the straps and door mount in their included bag and toss them in my carry-on for use at the hotel. The app syncs with Samsung Health on my GS9+ and Fitbit. I'm sure it works with other health apps, but I'm limited to those examples at home. Overall I'm loving it and hoping to regain some strength and flexibility in my back and shoulders. Only problem I have is the included promo code for 8 workouts has to be input on the website, and not the app. That's what the card says so it's my fault for being confused when I couldn't find the option after I set up the app. For others who read this review but not the actual instructions, maybe you'll about that mistake.

    Design, Ease of use, Set up

    I have really enjoyed this product. Setup is really easy and you are able to perform a lot of different exercises quickly and effectively. The idea is simple, handles and loops that allow you to perform push/pull exercises. The straps are easily adjustable in length for quick transition and have both hand and foot loops/grips. The top is simply secured with the wrap-around strap or over the doorstop.(Note: I am using this on an interior hollow door with the doorstop. I did although, use a towel over the door to prevent rubbing damage to the door!) I use the doorstop currently and am able to get in a quick 100 rep workout in about 5 minutes. Consisting of squats, bicep curls, back rows, and pushups. The adjustable straps allow you to set up your strength and comfort level accordingly. Included in the kit as well as a quickstart poster of exercises and of course the TRX workout subscription. There are so many different exercises and workouts available there and on youtube. So there a a lot of ways to use this. Lastly, there is the travel bag, this will hold the straps and all for easy travel. So you can maintain your workouts where ever you go. I would highly recommend this product for those that are both getting started in their workout journey and those that are serious and need travel options. Price-wise, I thought it was a little on the high side for MSRP. But I have seen several sales that bring the price to a reasonable point. These are VERY well made and will last quite a long time!

    Great workout

    Price

    ## Design Suspension trips are a great way to get a workout at home using your own body weight. The TRX Strong System comes with the two arm straps (connected at the top), a suspension strap, a door anchor, a workout poster, and a code for unlocking the online training guide and app for one month. You can use the door anchor to hang the straps from a sturdy, closed door, or use the suspension trap to hang the straps from a higher location, such as a sturdy tree branch or jungle gym bar. I found a fairly expensive ceiling mount online that I attached to an overhead beam in my basement. Since the mount was on the ceiling, I did need to use the yellow suspension strap to get the correct height (where the foot straps are about 3 inches above ground when the straps are fully extended). ## Workout The workouts you can do with the TRX straps work multiple muscle groups at once, especially since you need to stabilize yourself when doing many of the moves. I feel like I get a great workout from these straps and I definitely feel it the next day. There are workouts available for all of the major muscle groups, so as legs, chest, back, shoulders and arms. The included workout poster includes both a weight loss routing and strength building routine. The code included in the kit allows you to view additional workouts on the website. ## Value The TRX straps are handy for travel since they’re fairly light and can be attached to most doors, allowing you to get a workout practically anywhere. Unfortunately, the code included with the system is only good for one month of workouts from the app. Given the price of the system, I believe a one year membership to the app would have been more appropriate. However, the workout videos in “My Locker” on the website appear to be available indefinitely, which is appreciated.

    Simple and very effective!

    Pros mentioned:
    Design, Ease of use

    At first glance, there is not much to this. Although very well made, it is literally a couple of straps with loops and padded handles. The real value here is the number of exercises you can do with it and the downloadable digital content. Even without the digital content, this system comes with a pretty nice poster sized workout sheet that shows you 18 different exercises. Nine for burning calories and nine for strength training. The system comes in a nice little net carry bag which you can throw in your suitcase or back pack, a door anchor and a suspension anchor for high ceilings. The straps are easy to adjust for various exercises. It can be sort of annoying to have to adjust the straps for different exercises, but it also provides time for a breather between sets. The exercises themselves are well thought out and challenging. Bodyweight exercises are very effective and require minimal equipment to stay in shape. My wife and I travel quite a bit and have found this device to be a good way to get in some exercise time without having to use hotel gyms which are often not cleaned regularly and are germ infested. We printed out the PDFs for the various workouts and downloaded the workout videos to view on our tablet while working out. This is where the TRX system earns its value. The content is really well done! There are various videos that makes it feel like you’re working with a personal trainer. The bottom line is that you are not just buying straps with padded handles, you are buying a system that shows you many different exercises and other content to help you get and stay in shape.

    Great on the go workout

    Ease of use, Portable

    The TRX strong system is one of the few portable, multiple muscle group, training equipment that is easy to use for all levels. With this system you get the trainer (includes hand / foot grips), a door anchor, suspension anchor, storage bag, and QR code to get support and workouts from the accompanying TRX app. If you are using this indoors, place the door anchor at the corner (next to the hinge) of any door, shut and lock door, and you are ready to proceed with your workout. If you have the luxury to anchor this system, you can use the included anchor and set the desired height and distance. The system is highly adjustable, and I've personally seen anywhere from 5' to 6'6" tall individuals use the trainer without issue. I'm using this system both anchored to an interior door for when I travel, or anchored overhead in the basement when I'm at home. The workouts provided in the app are phenomenal, and you can customize to your skill level and comfort. If you find yourself looking for new workout routines there are a multitude of other workouts online you can search for. With the companion app you can register your system, get guided workouts, and track your workouts. In theory you can also connect monitoring sensors or Samsung Health which I haven't done, as well as find a Gym / Coach.who is TRX qualified. Overall a very enthusiastic two thumbs up.

    Unbelievably better than resistance bands

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Ease of use, Safety

    This is my first time using TRX equipment and I wasn't quite sure what to expect. The material is top-notch and the set has a serial number that can be validated on the site (this helps avoid purchasing counterfeit systems). The door anchor is a square cushion securely fastened to the strap and anchor that go over the door. Adjusting the straps is simple, and the brightly-colored tab glides easily along the length of the strap. If you've ever had a resistance band break during a workout, then you'll immediately notice the liberating feeling of not having to worry that your eyes are in imminent danger of an elastic slingshot flying 90 mph at your face. To create more resistance- put your feet closer to the door [so that you're leaning further]. The straps are as secure as a seat-belt . Another benefit over resistance bands is that, when stored, the TRX are much more compact and light. To get the same resistance (of your body weight) from resistance bands would require 2 full sets. The TRX allows you to work every muscle group in your body and doesn't require more than 6 feet of clearance from a doorway. Now that I know how sturdy these are, I think that I could've gotten away with the thinner/lighter version of the TRX suspension straps. I'm excited to take these with me on my next trip and already plan to purchase more as a Christmas gift.

    Ease of use, Set up

    The TRX Strong System suspension trainer is a game changer for easy at home strength training. The system comes in a little mesh bag that makes it easy to store or to take with you. This couldn’t be easier to install. You literally just hang it over your door. I was hesitant at first - and really didn’t think it would hold my weight - but it does. I have tried it out on several interior doors with no issues at all. Included with the system is a small poster with exercises listed and also a key to unlock 8 additional workouts on the TRX website. The workout videos are very well done and easy to follow. This system has helped me exercise muscles that I have never done at the gym and at a higher weight because I’m using my own body weight. I definitely feel like I’m getting a better strength conditioning workout than when using machines at the gym. The best part is this is small enough to take with you on trips.

    confusing setup and exercises in beginning

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Ease of use, Portable

    Whats in the box: Door harness, suspension harness, handles and a carrying bag. Also a card with a free trial subscription to workouts. Setup: It was a big confusing. The setup card in the box was not much help and was pretty vague. I went to the website to get an account and help setting it up, and that was a process. I had to create an account, then type in a long access code, then type in the serial number of the harness. Then all I could get were more PDF's of exercises to do. Not really much help. I then found that there is an app, so I downloaded that. Once I got the app up and running, it was much more helpful. There are many videos, and it can sync with an Apple Watch for heart rate and other notifications which is helpful. I just wish the box directed me to do that, rather than just using vague PDF's. Use: Once you actually figure out how to set it up, the use is fairly easy. Good luck using the PDF's to figure out how to do an exercise though. Once I watched the videos on my phone, it was fairly easy to use. You have to adjust the length of the handles for different exercises. Once you get the hang of it, it is quick to do, but in the beginning it will take some fumbling around. Some of the exercises are good, some of them I feel are just a gimmick to use the device. The best part is that it is very portable, and can be used on basically any door. If you travel a lot, this would be easy to use in a hotel room. Overall: Not sure its totally worth the price. Confusing setup and I'm not completely sold on some of the exercises. If you travel a lot, its more worth it than just staying at home.

    Nice home workout Great for Physical Therapy

    Ease of use

    I have been using the TRX system for 10 days now and other than a few qwerks, I enjoy using it for the Physical Therapy of my torn rotator cuff and the 5 herniated discs in my neck. There is many ways to mount the system, including the door strap but I bought a 3/8" eyelet bolt and mounted into a beam in my basement. There is many possibilities and exercises you can do using your own body weight. I focus on 10 specific from the videos from TRX and what I was shown in my PT sessions. I no longer have to pay out to go, I can stay home and get the same results. Make sure you mount it to a sturdy door, the strap can slip through on a loose door, found that out. Also, the straps are somewhat easy to adjust, sometimes they get bound up and make it difficult to adjust. It may be my fault but I have watched many videos and cannot figure out why mine act this way. The quality of the kit is on par with the best, thick straps and heavy duty stitching throughout. It holds my 230 lbs with ease. I have noticed a difference using the TRX system in the past 10 days faster than going to PT. It is truly a one size fits all system, even my 13 year old daughter is using it to get in shape for racing next season. Thanks TRX for making a great system, just make these buckles easier to adjust and add a big stopper top the door strap to hold it better.

    Got this a few days back and got right to it. There are lots of videos to get you started. The device itself is very easy to set up and use, once you watch the videos, you can get started right away. I had back surgery a few years ago and was hoping this would be a low impact way for my to get in a a workout. Unfortunately for me this is not going to work. The way this is designed, you really don’t have any support aside from your core. For me this put too much of a strain on my back and long term use is not sustainable for me. For those without back issues, this is a fantastic way to get a workout.

    Set up

    Any personal trainer will tell you that consistency is one of the biggest keys to getting (and staying) in shape. As a lifestyle professional, I often have to travel and/or find myself stuck at home without the energy to want to go to the gym but still wanting to exercise. That is where this TRX system excels. The equipment paired with the included workout programs available via the excellent, well-crafted app have worked in tandem to allow me to get my exercise done in a consistent, full body manner without having to be concerned with where I am located. Just a door frame and a few minutes of easy set up and I am ready to go. The strap based workouts involved in the core movements outlined in their material are challenging and a great change away from just doing none-equipment bodyweight based workouts. Altogether, I am super happy with this workout system and cannot recommend it enough, top to bottom.
