TRX FAQs

TRX has benefits for everyoneWho will benefit from TRX Suspension Training?
Everyone can benefit from TRX Suspension Training. TRX is perfect for gentle rehabilitation, hardcore athletic training, and everything in-between.

Is TRX Suspension Training appropriate for people who are out of shape or just beginning an exercise programme?
Yes. Hands-on Health’s qualified TRX instructors can design a programme specifically for your needs and abilities – you may not be a performance athlete nor regularly active, but you can achieve great results too.

TRX can also be used to help people with a number of movements that are normally too difficult for those who are out of condition.

 

How is TRX Suspension Training different from other types of resistance training?

Traditional weight training often only works one muscle at a time which is contradictory to the normal co-ordinated muscle effort used to complete most activities. TRX Suspension Training allows for the use of multiple planes of motion and works multiple muscles and joints simultaneously.

Is TRX appropriate for rehabilitation and physical therapy after an injury?
Many physical therapists use TRX to help their patients recover from various injuries. All Hands-on Health’s TRX instructors are qualified physical therapists.

Hands-on Health clients often report that their doctors have been surprised by the speed and extent of their recovery.

How long is a session?
At Hands-on Health a normal TRX session takes an hour. This will include the all-important warm-up and cool-down stretches that will help you to avoid, or recover from, injury.

Upper body exerciseHow often should I do TRX, and do I need to do other types of exercise as well?
Ideally, everyone should exercise at least three times a week.

One TRX session a week, in addition to other exercise activities, can improve your health and fitness. Some clients choose to do it two or three times a week.

Can I lose weight doing TRX training?
Whether you want to gain weight, lose weight, get stronger, build stamina or recover from injury, there are TRX exercises for you.

I’ve seen TRX equipment in my gym – can’t I just do it there on my own?
It is important to use the TRX system effectively and safely. We strongly advise that you learn from a qualified TRX instructor before you train alone, for your own safety and well-being. Once you have fully mastered the techniques and exercises, it is possible to use the equipment provided in your gym, or buy it to use at home.
