Often times when I say TRX to someone they look at me like I’m crazy and wonder was I talking about a prehistoric dinosaur or training equipment. I’ve written articles about travel training and portable equipment and the TRX is by far one of those “no brainer” devices that makes exercise easier for the traveler. The TRX is a suspension trainer that allows a person to do body weight exercises while suspended. By varying the angles and speed of movement you can work on strength and power and with most exercises the TRX challenges stability.

In Bangkok, there are very few places that maintain authentic TRX products, but fortunately for us at Active Lifestyle we get the real deal at Studio by FIT in Ploenchit. Studio by FIT offers TRX group classes which are always fun and enthusiastic.  The large metal frame allows for multiple TRX’s to be suspended from it which is awesome.

For the clients of Active Lifestyle this is also great because whether we’re in a personal training session or a group training session we can utilize this frame for both demonstration and activity all at once. Our clients love the TRX as they’ve seen it on The Biggest Loser Asia. It’s a great device to integrate into your workouts for variety, a little bit of core and stability challenge. If you haven’t tried the TRX before then it’s high time you did.
