    TRX suspension training

    Yep. The ads the keep popping up on this sit . How is TRX? Is it worth it for the benefits?

    I'd be looking to use them say 30 mins 3 x week.

    I would only buy the TRX if I had 200$ I didn't want.

    Since I'm not that stupid, I'd just google "DIY TRX" and make one for >20$

    Wow..awesome response. I know they charge a leg for them. I was really just curious about people's experience with them.

    You're welcome. One of my friends wives works in the fitness industry and speaks highly of the trx. Adjustable gymnastics rings are pretty sweet, but they can only do a couple really unique things...

    Worked out on TRX all winter 2X week in a class, and was very impressed, especially with upper body and core toning. The instructor has put the class on hold until fall, now that everybody is outside doing the real things. Classes are great, because most of us can never push ourselves with these sort of workouts as hard as a coach does.

    So I would check out local gyms and classes first, and give it a try.

    I may spring for one at home myself, since I can feel my upper body getting weak now that I mostly ride and there's no other classes around my area.
    Old enough to know better. And old enough not to care. Best age to be.
