Testimonial for TRX Training

I take pride in working with my clients, developing a personal relationship, and helping them achieve their goals. Read what one of my satisfied clients has said about my TRX classes!

“So there I was, at the WRONG end of my closet…not good. I’m turning 40 this year and am actually excited about it.  But, it was time to admit that I can’t fight Father Time forever. It was time to stop spending six months getting in shape and then letting it all go until those pants no longer fit, only to start all over again. I needed direction but couldn’t afford a personal trainer. Does that sound like an excuse? Not good enough? Well, I have two little kids and erratic work hours, making it really difficult to attend evening classes. That’s 0 for 2 so far. Did I mention I’m a night owl and HATE getting up in the morning to go to the gym? Three strikes. So that was it, right? Not so fast; all these excuses didn’t change the fact that I had three pair of pants (including the “mom” jeans) that fit me. Then, there were those two little kids at home who needed a good role model, not someone who would just keep buying new pants while ending up sick and frail before her time. Speaking of time…JUST IN TIME, Clarita found Jennifer Billings and TRX! No one and nothing else in this world could get me to the gym at 6:00 a.m.; but, just three classes a week for two months have me back at the right end of my closet! YAY!! I’m also stronger than I’ve been since my 20’s. The best part is that TRX is included in my Personal Best monthly dues! Am I using too many exclamation points? I can’t help it. Personal Best is the only gym in the South Bay that doesn’t charge extra for TRX. Since there are only 5 students per class, it’s really like having a personal trainer. Besides the fact that Jennifer is totally fun (EVEN at 6:00 a.m.!!), the small classes allow her to tailor the workout for those “extra special” areas. So, what are you waiting for?”

Surf Stronger with TRX®

What an awesome workout! Most of you know that I’m a huge fan of the TRX. TRXing is something I do several times a week for my own workouts and all my clients love it too.

I am not a surfer myself, but I know that surfing takes strength, balance, and determination. As a native California girl, I’ve watched people riding the waves for years and always watch them in awe as they jump up and catch the waves. I’m always jealous when I see them out there with dolphins so close they could reach out and touch them. If only I could get over my dislike of cold water…enough about me, let’s get to the Surf Stronger workout!

This workout is a fantastic tool for surfers and non-surfers alike to increase their strength, balance, and coordination. It works the entire body and mixes in some really fun (and challenging) cardio drills. Each exercise is 30 to 45 seconds with a 15 to 60 second break between sets. I especially love the “Surfers Pop-Up Drill” which entails lying on the ground doing a paddling motion with the arms and jumping up like you would onto a surfboard.

After doing this workout a few times, I feel like I just may grab a board, learn to surf, and enjoy the fun too!

Fitness Anywhere. Anytime.

On the beaches of sunny Southern California you’ll see people walking, running, biking, rollerblading, surfing, lunging, squatting, doing yoga, and now, TRX-ing. No, this is not a typo. TRX-ing is now a verb! 

I did not know much about the TRX so I called a local trainer and he put me through an amazing full body workout. I thought I was pretty fit but that workout left me sore all over. I couldn’t believe how my abs were engaged in every exercise. Did I mention my glutes? I’ve done a lot of leg and glute exercises but nothing has ever gotten into my glutes like a suspended lunge. After that workout, I was hooked! I bought the TRX Suspension Trainer home bundle which includes a TRX, instructional DVD and guide. I also purchased the door anchor so I could try it out at home. Fortunately, there was a trainer certification class shortly after I received my TRX so I enrolled and became a Certified TRX Trainer.

The TRX Suspension Trainer was originally created by a Navy SEAL and is the now one of the hottest total body tools on the market. In fact, Men’s Health magazine named it as Best Total Body Tool for 2009. It is portable, light-weight, and convenient to take anywhere! The entire thing only weighs 1.67 lbs. The TRX is a couple of straps with handles similar to what it at the end of a resistance band but has added foot cradles.

 

 

You can attach your TRX to any stable anchor as long as the anchor point is at least 6 ft. off of the ground. Hang it over a swing set in the park, a pull up bar, Smith machine, or over the side of a life guard station (my personal favorite :D), wrap it around a volleyball post or a tree. I even taught a class at lucy in Manhattan Beach on Fitness Friday. Fitness Friday @ lucy Manhattan Beach

See what I mean, anywhere there’s a stationary object that can handle your body weight you have a place to hook up your TRX.

Who can use the TRX? EVERYONE can use it. From professional athletes like Drew Brees and MMA star Brandon Vera to the average Joe. Regardless of your fitness level, you can use the TRX. The TRX allows you to perform a myriad of functional exercises using your own body weight and gravity to increase the difficulty of an exercise. TRX-ing will help you increase your overall strength, sculpt your arms, legs, and core, improve your balance and coordination, speed and agility. There are several DVD’s, YouTube videos, wall charts, and even a fun card game called FitDeck to teach you the many exercises you can do to take your fitness routine to the next level.

There are over 400 exercises that you can do on the TRX but don’t worry, you don’t have to do all of them. I trained my brother a few weeks ago and my 8 year old niece had the best time trying all the exercies and just using the TRX as a swing. Have fun, get creative, and get FIT!

TRX Multi-Sport Strength DVD Review

I’ve been watching and purchasing fitness videos and DVD’s since the days of Jane Fonda so, I believe I’m pretty qualified to judge a good one vs. one that’s just not so great. So, when I was asked to write a review for the NEW! TRX Multi-Sport Strength DVD, I was honored and happily obliged.

The TRX Multi-Sport Strength DVD focuses on strength, stability, and power. It’s a great full-body workout in just 30 minutes. Jessi Stensland, a Professional Triathlete, runs through 8 of her favorite exercises. I just finished watching it again and I’m very impressed with the combinations of exercises shown. The exercises are broken down so that the first 15 minutes are spent on upper body and the last 15 minutes focus on lower body and core.

She cues each of the exercises with a concise yet thorough explanation. What I really appreciate, is that she tells you what the length of the TRX should be and the correct positioning so there is no question. It is also shown at the bottom of the screen at the beginning of each exercise. She refers to the importance of bio-mechanics (spinal alignment) and proper posture throughout the workout. She also talks about unilateral training and how it can be used to correct imbalances in the body and help prevent injuries.

This is a great DVD for beginners and instructors/trainers because she clearly explains the modifications and goes through each exercise in a slow and controlled manner. Jessi has a great attitude and an amazing figure, she’s upbeat and you can tell she’s having a great time which in turn makes this a great DVD to watch.

Overall, I’d give this one 4 stars out of 5.

Rating (Out of 5):
Instruction: ★★★★★
Long-Term Likeability: ★★★
Meets Expectations: ★★★★
Overall: ★★★★

As a side note: I am a HUGE FAN of the TRX. I bought it as a tool for personal use and, since I’m a Personal Trainer became TRX certified so I could use it with my clients. What I love most about the TRX is that it’s great for ALL LEVELS of fitness because each exercise can be modified by just changing the position of the feet or the body. I bought several TRX’s and now teach TRX Group Fitness classes at a very reasonable cost. So, if you’re in the South Bay (Redondo, Hermosa, or Manhattan Beach, Torrance, or El Segundo area) feel free to contact me.
