Get F.I.T. with TRX

F.I.T. with TRX is The Ranch Fitness Center & Spa’s Functional Integrated Training program, which features TRX. TRX training, one of the hottest fitness trends, is a method of suspended body weight exercises. A U.S. Navy SEAL in need of high performance and portability developed this unique training system. After experimenting with a few sturdy straps thrown over a fence or tree branch, he was onto something big.

Suspension training requires the use of specialized straps and handles which are suspended from an anchor point. Suspension training leverages your body weight against gravity. You govern the exercise challenge by adjusting your body position to either increase or decrease the resistance load. Numerous suspension exercises enable you to train all the muscles in the body. This efficient, simple concept allows a few straps to replace big, bulky strength training machines. In addition, TRX exercises allow for movement in multiple planes, making it very functional. In other words, TRX exercises mimic human movements more authentically and support everyday activities outside the gym.

A huge benefit of suspension training is the core conditioning that accompanies whatever exercises you are executing. Because the exercises are suspended, the core muscles are activated to stabilize the body. The core muscle group is firing much more than it would if you were on a strength-training machine, lying on a bench or standing with a stable base of support. The beauty of TRX training is that new exercisers as well as seasoned athletes will find challenge and success. We are extremely excited to host a special day of free F.I.T. with TRX at The Ranch Fitness Center & Spa, Monday, Oct. 21.

These techniques influence muscle and connective tissue to either soften, tighten, strengthen or lengthen.
