Utilized by some of the fittest people on the planet (including pro athletes and members of the military) because of its versatility, the TRX gives you the ability to seamlessly incorporate lower, upper, and core muscles for total body workouts with unparalleled benefits. Try this month’s workout and see how quickly you start building strength, balance, coordination, and flexibility from head to toe.
