TRX stands for Total Body Resistance Exercise. It is a fitness tool made from high quality nylon with handles at the bottom and can hold up to 1400 pounds. TRX is a whole-body workout that simultaneously develops total body strength, balance, flexibility, and control. You have to use your core to do TRX, just as you do in your daily life, whether you know it or not.
TRX is woven into physical therapy treatments to unload healing tissues, relearn movement, and ensure safe exercise while recovering from injury. After rehab, TRX can be used for next level strengthening and conditioning.
The Center for Physical Health is a TRX training center, where other professionals and trainers come to learn how to use the entire TRX system.
