Do you have a simple, effective solution for staying fit on the road?
I have been traveling throughout Southeast Asia and India for the past three months. My primary method to stay fit when I travel has been the TRX Suspension Trainer. I have been more than pleased with the TRX and the ease to get a full body workout from literally anywhere.
Here are my top 5 reasons to take the TRX Suspension Trainer with you when traveling to stay fit.
1. Portability / Light Weight
The TRX Suspension Trainer weighs less than 2 pounds and thus, makes it an ideal total body fitness tool to pack in your suitcase or carry-on luggage.
Here is a picture of my luggage for this trip. As you can see, the TRX is very easy to pack.
2. Adaptability / Anchoring Solutions
With the TRX Suspension Trainer’s unique and versatile anchoring solutions, you workout locations are numerous. I have hooked the TRX up to over 40 hotel doors over the past 3 months of traveling using the TRX Door Anchor. Additionally, I have hooked the TRX up to palm tress on the beach, chin-up bars at a park and wooden support beams. If you have a space at home that you would like to make your TRX Suspension Trainer home, the TRX Xmount is an option. The TRX Xmount can turn any room into a functional training studio.

3. Quality of Workouts
As mentioned above, I have been using the TRX Suspension Trainer on the road now for 3 months. I am continually amazed at the quality of the workouts that I have been able to perform from my hotel room our outside. In 25-30 minutes, I have been able to squeeze in tremendously effective and efficient full body workouts. Of course there are some days when I feel like just stretching or maybe focusing on the core. This is no problem as there are literally hundreds of different TRX Suspension Trainer exercises to choose from.
For you athletes that have demanding travel schedules, the TRX is an excellent solution. You can work on speed, cardio, agility and balance right from the confines of your hotel room.
4. The ‘Wow’ Factor
On my current trip, I have tried to exercise with the TRX Suspension Trainer outside s much as possible. I just prefer to be outdoors when I can. I was pleasantly surprised at the curiosity I have received when locals wonder what I am doing on the wild-looking black and yellow straps! Many locals have approached me and wanted to have a try on the TRX. I never would have thought that my workouts would have been one of the best ways to interact t with the locals. At one point in Hanoi, Vietnam, I had 10 people watching me workout on the TRX. I went around and showed them some exercises as if I was teaching a class – it was fantastic!

5. No Excuses
With the TRX Suspension Trainer’s portability, adaptability and ability to challenge all areas of total body fitness, there are absolutely no excuses! Whether you want a fully body workout in 30 minutes or just have 10 minutes to do some core exercises, the TRX Suspension Trainer is there and ready to be used. Fitness anywhere, anytime.
