If you haven’t already been to the ARC Express, you may be depriving yourself of a really intense workout. All the equipment located in the facility is the newest and most innovative on the fitness market today. The stationary machines are FREE motion which means they require your WHOLE body to use instead of just the ordinary machines that just target indivdual muscles. Along with being more of an overall body workout, because the machines are free motion they put less pressure on your joints.
As if that isn’t incentive enough, we have the most talked about, popular, and newest piece of equipment that all the best trainers in the world have been raving about: TRX.
So you might be reading this and going, “what is this TRX you speak of..?”
The TRX Suspension Trainer is the original, best-in-class workout system that leverages gravity and your body weight to perform hundreds of total-body exercises. You’re in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise – because you can simply adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance. By utilizing your own bodyweight, the TRX Suspension Trainer provides greater performance and functionality than large exercise machines.
Don’t think it’s just your muscles that you’re working. TRX moves target different parts of your body while also raising your heart rate. Most exercises done on the TRX suspension cables “integrate multiple muscles, which require oxygen,” says Randy, CEO and founder of TRX, “ increases your heartbeat and breath as you hold a move or do your reps, making many TRX exercises super-efficient, integrated strength and cardio moves,” explains Randy.
Here is a preview of some of the exercises you can perform:
Two suspension straps — infinite ways to use them. You can do it all with TRX, from lunges to planks to upper body resistance exercises. And the best part? Your workouts can change as many times as you want them to. That means that both your mind and your body will stay challenged with all the ways you can mix up your workouts.
If you’ve never done TRX or interested in a more one on one environment with a trainer, you can now sign up for a small group TRX training class before you commit to any individual training. This way your instructor can teach you the proper way to do many of the moves without injuring yourself and most effective ways. You will then be ready to perform a variety of different exercises on your own.
