TRX Suspension Training uses an athlete’s bodyweight and a wide range of motion to enhance strength, balance, and flexibility for a full-body work out. The system was developed by a Navy SEAL and now caters to thousands of users around the globe, including collegiate athletes, professional athletes, and Olympians. Below, we break down how each set of athletes utilize the unique benefits of TRX training in ways that anyone can adopt for their own fitness routine.

Collegiate athletes

Both male and female athletes at Harvard University work out with TRX while focusing on injury prevention. Because TRX exercises are easy on the joints, they are a healthy alternative to more severe methods.



Professional athletes

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees uses TRX to strengthen and stabilitize his muscles. Full-body movements help the NFL player’s coordination and agility. With the system’s diversity, Brees uses the bands for general exercises, like back rows, as well as football-specific exercises, like throwing simulations.


Liverpool FC uses TRX in their weight room, combining TRX with weights and circuits for a well-rounded and balanced workout.


Two-time Olympic silver medalist Christine Magnuson uses TRX on the pool deck. When neither cardio nor strength training tools are available, Magnuson takes TRX poolside for a simple but serious workout. The TRX system is portable, so it can be used anywhere, indoors or out.


Olypmic hurdler Stina Troest has used TRX in multiple ways. First, she used the system in a group setting while outdoors at the track with training mates.

Troest also shared about TRX’s broad demographic appeal.  The system is customizable, so users control the pace and resistance of exercises. The hurdler worked out with her mother and siblings, proving that you don’t have to be a world-class athlete to work out like one!
