Why I TRX...
I'm a cream puff. Nice people call me curvy, voluptuous. Mean people call me chubby.
I've been looking for a workout that speaks to me for years. I've tried a LOT of different things, all of which had different effects on my body.
I tried running. I saw incredibly fast results, but my shins were always sore and I just hated every step.
I tried dance and I loved it more than anything, but it's hard to find dance programs for adults.
Zumba was fun, but I didn't feel like it worked my whole body.
I tried weight lifting but it was so boring.
I looked into Crossfit, but I saw so many people injured and sort of weirdly celebrating that injury - I have no time for a workout that acts as self-punishment instead of self-care.
My yoga teacher steered me toward TRX and after months of being too nervous to start, I finally gave it a try.
I pushed myself too far the first TRX class. I almost couldn't stand up afterwards! I learned my limits fast and as I kept attending classes, I learned how to push them safely. I saw very rapid changes in my body and my energy level. I started losing inches and stopped huffing and puffing up the stairs. I started noticing how much better I felt in class when I had eaten good food during the day leading up to it, and started avoiding junk food.
I'm never bored in TRX because the workouts are always different and changing, and I'm always able to do more than I could in the previous class.
It's exciting, it's fast, it's whole-body, and it's fun!
