Yesterday I went to a TRX class as part of the #fitmamasyeg challenge. One full hour of nothing but TRX. When I mentioned to J that I was going he said something like "isn't that the workout that was really popular 5 years ago?" Fine, so I am a little late to the game on this one but I might as well share my experience right?
I have done TRX exercises before with a trainer and at strollercize, but I have never taken a full class. We worked our whole body from piston squats to chest press. The instructor warned us that we might feel dizzy during the class and I was surprised when I actually did. Like nauseous dizzy. I am going to assume it is because the TRX straps are moving so slightly that you don't really notice, but it is enough to make you feel a bit queasy. Or, I am out of shape : )
A TRX system, a mat and your body weight are all that are needed. The gym had all the TRXs suspended from a big frame, but neighbours of ours just had their basement ceiling reinforced so that they could do the workouts at home. I might be popping over for some suspended pushups :)
