TRX Training: Will This Class Hook Me?

TRX Training, a suspension-based training program born from Navy Seals was designed to develop strength, balance, flexibility and core stability simultaneously.  The program uses the pull of gravity against your own body weight and is designed with over hundreds of different exercises to work towards any fitness goal.

I first heard about TRX when their TRX On Tour van came by Gonzaga’s campus last year.  While I wasn’t able to check it out due to my work schedule, I did hear great things from our fitness center staff.  More recently, I was talking to one of the trainers and staff members at the RFC and she mentioned how much she loved the program and that it was getting her results she had never received with another program.

Last week while working out, I noticed a schedule for the upcoming pay classes that Gonzaga was offering this spring, and TRX was on the list.  I decided to give it a try and am now taking a class on Tuesday evenings after work for the next 5 weeks. I had a quick training on Thursday evening to learn about the technique and basics and should be ready to go tonight during my first real class.

Based on what I saw in the training class last week, I expect to be sore after this first class and to love every minute of it. I am thinking it will be pretty tough, but I am ready for it and during the 2nd session of classes this spring, I’ll  probably sign up for it twice a week, but we’ll see how it goes.  I’ll post a quick update after the class tonight.
