For years Iíve utilized kettlebells for my own resistance training because I felt nothing could match the full-body tension thatís required when using a kettlebell for strength training. However, Iím always seeking out different types of apparatuses that will develop my own strength, my personal training clients, and my members here at Ultimate Kickboxing & Fitness. While taking the TRX certification course, I could feel that the TRX exercises not only met, but exceed my training expectations. For instance, when I first attempted the TRX side plank getting into the position was challenging, but once I familiarized myself with the movement, I was able to achieve success and gain even greater confidence with the other exercises.
Plus, I have personally discovered the dramatic results when utilizing the TRX in personal training. The sheer beauty of witnessing the joy of success on the faces of my clients is priceless. TRX truly offers something for all fitness levels: from the post- operative rehab individual, the deconditioned client who wants to get back in shape after a lengthy hiatus, to the weekend warrior and beyond.
