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.

Great

The straps are sturdy and can give you a great workout when following the included workout poster or the included online video workouts. Unfortunately, app access is limited to one month before you need to pay it for it separately.
