To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I ordered this product and it was delivered however when I opened the package there were parts missing. I returned the item for a refund and re-ordered the product. The second package came and I absolutely love it. I would recommend anybody who works out to purchase the TRX trainer because you can take it anywhere. You will certainly get your monies worth out of this product.
Purchased and installed for my father (75 y/o) to use as a supplement / option to his free weights. Best I can say is he uses it a lot - great benefit to his range of motion, functional strength, and balance with exercise options that standard bells or kettles don't provide. Can adjust straps easily between or during exercises and control "resistance" almost without limit with lengths and body position. No ego bruising or discouragement by comparing #s on a plate or bell from past fitness levels or expected performance. Movements are made as difficult or as easy as he chooses. It shortens, intensifies, & simplifies his workouts with more compound movements that will help maintain longer term all around fitness and independence . Good all around piece of equipment for anyone regardless of age. Just ensure it's installed securely and check it occasionally.
The physical strap product is great and gets 5 stars for sure. Is very sturdy, adjusts easily and it feels like it will last a lifetime. I supplement this strap into my freeweights workouts for a change of pace. Zero complaints here. My one complaint is for $30 extra you get their "book" and access to their app. Both of these items I feel are completely useless. The book only has a few exercises and is more of an into into the product. The app is not very robust and YouTube does a much better job of giving you a variety of workouts. Save your money and just buy the TRX by itself.
I bought the TRX after I took a private personal training session with a certified TRX trainer. I bought it with the door anchor. I HIGHLY recommend either using it overhead and not off a door. In my experience with the door anchor, it limits the range of motion and some of the exercises that you can do. Now, if you had to travel and live out of a hotel, then yes the door anchor would be handy to bust out a workout. But, at home or wherever you use it on a regular basis, you will want it tied off overhead in my opinion. I have not tried the wall/ceiling anchor myself, but am considering purchasing it. I currently use it tied off to a cable cross over machine and it works perfectly. You can get an awesome whole body workout. This could potentially be the only piece of equipment you will ever need to use. And like anything else, you get out of it what you put in. So push yourself hard! There is some youtube videos out there to give you some ideas of other exercises to do, that are not on the dvd/booklet it comes with
The package is comprehensive with the basic apparatus, a dvd that shows the basic workout, and a book that also shows the basic exercises. The dvd and booklet both do a good job describing the exercises. There are also a lot of support services available through the web site. Maybe that's why it costs as much as it does.
The basic workout, which is all that I've tried so far, is challenging. I do most of my exercising on a Concept 2 rowing ergometer. This is a good adjunct to that effort as it gets me doing more work on some areas in the arms and shoulders. I don't find it as challenging to my core as many apparently do, although that may be because of the amount of rowing that I do.
The equipment appears to be made from quality materials. I suspend mine from a roof truss, which puts it a bit higher off the floor than it's supposed to be. It seems clear that it's best if it can hang straight down, so you should have an attachment spot in mind before buying. I haven't tried the door anchor yet.
Like it so far. I just got the anchor you screw into the wall to attach suspension system. I wanted that so I could set it up in garage. I had only used it a few times in my bedroom with piece you put over door and shut so you can workout which worked great, but I don't really want to workout in my bedroom.
As a piece of equipment I would give it five stars but I have to knock off a star due to the price. Having said that, they are sturdy and now I have something I can take on business trips to use in the hotel room.
Have toned and lost weight and gained strength in the past almost 3 months. Wish TRX would redesign the foot cradles to adjust for the smaller female foot. I have to use the handle slot. Tons of online videos, find your favorite! Bought a lug attachment at lowes and attached it to the joists in our basement.
I bought this so I could use it at home on the days I can't get to the gym. The DVD and booklet were very helpful to get me started. And I like it enough that I've been skipping the gym some days just to use the TRX (the one at the gym is always in use). The only downside is that I have to use the door anchor as I have no ceiling mount at home - so the exercises have to be modified a bit to accommodate the door. Overall, I get a great workout.
