TRX All-in-One Body Suspension Trainer
Amazon

TRX All-in-One Body Suspension Trainer

$170 from Amazon

Shop Now


The TRX system (that’s short for “total body resistance exercise,” in case you’re curious) uses straps to help you perform dozens of gravity-resistance exercises for a whole-body workout, from pushups to squats and situps. The great thing is that they allow you to control the intensity, making TRX ideal for newbies and longtime fitness buffs alike. This kit comes with an over-the-door mount, but for serious TRX action, you’ll need a heavy-duty anchor (here's an off-brand one on Amazon that gets great reviews for $14).
