What is the origin of TRX training?

In order to fully understand its benefits, let's first take a look at the meaning of the acronym TRX. These three letters actually refer to the English terms Total Resistance Exercise. Originally, this training was designed by an American soldier looking for a way to train that had to meet certain criteria:

  1. require a minimum of equipment;

  2. respect the possibility of being carried out in a restricted space;

  3. while using equipment that can easily be transported with him in operation.

This man therefore came up with the ingenious idea of ​​using parachute straps. Attached quickly to almost any place, it became possible for him to train effectively everywhere. This is how Randy Hetrick, Navy SEAL commando, invented the TRX. Since its introduction in the early 2000s, the TRX has immediately become an essential activity in various gyms around the world.

What is TRX all about?

Have you ever noticed those famous black and yellow straps in a gym or training room? If so, then you already know a little about the TRX.
