SNOWSHOE MAGAZINE GEAR REVIEW:

Gear Review: TRX Pro Pack

Suspended bodyweight training is a simple, low-tech exercise modality, offering a no-frills yet mercilessly effective way to take your training anywhere. It leverages gravity and the user’s bodyweight. The TRX Suspension Training system offers innumerable benefits to the snowshoer.

The TRX Pro Pack Suspension Training system is a proprietary exercise modality capable of safely performing hundreds of functional exercises to build power, strength, flexibility, balance, core stability, mobility, and prevent injuries at your preferred level of intensity and duration. Endurance and metabolic conditioning are staples of this versatile apparatus.

The TRX is a complete training system that is perfect for all levels of fitness. Each TRX package includes complete usage instructions, training tips, and a comprehensive full body workout that will adapt to your improved fitness. Suspended bodyweight training has become an effective and convenient portable modality among competitive athletes in a variety of endurance and team sports at every level on the globe.

The TRX Suspension Training system was developed by former Navy SEAL Randy Hetrick while stationed in Southeast Asia. He devised a way to use his body weight as resistance by stitching scrap parachute webbing into straps that could fasten to a door, a tree limb, or anything sturdy about nine feet high.

The ease of adjustments and quick transitions from one exercise to the next creates a time-efficient and total body workout in which you determine the intensity. It can be used indoors or outside. A modular anchoring interface with a quick-release carabiner provides the ultimate in fast set-ups and takedowns. The patented self-adjusting Equalizer Loop provides unparalleled durability, simplicity, and safety. The re-designed handles provide comfort and the foot cradles accommodate a size 16 shoe.

Fitness Anywhere, Inc. is a San Francisco-based company committed to social and environmental responsibility. It uses completely recycled packaging material made from 100% post-consumer content. The company develops and delivers world-class training products and workout programs for everyone from fitness enthusiasts and professionals of any age and ability to top name athletes across the planet.

Endurance athlete extraordinaire, mentor, coach, and fitness guru for the USSSA, Steve Ilg taught me in 1992 the soft yet punishing lessons an empty bar can impart upon my fitness and wellness. The TRX Suspension Training system is a portable version of self-imposed hurt and enlightenment that snowshoers could easily integrate into his/her training regimen to improve his/her snowshoeing prowess and wellness.
