Army makes big purchase of TRX Suspension Trainers

As a fan of the TRX Suspension Trainer, and as someone who uses one semi regularly personally – as well as  with the tactical LE/SWAT teams I have worked with – I think this is $$$ well spent for the Army. Below is the press release. You can see a short vid of yours truly using one at home HERE

FORT BRAGG, N.C. – The Army has purchased 3,205 TRX Suspension Trainer “Fitness Anywhere,” kits to help deployed Soldiers get complete-body workouts wherever they can find a beam, doorway or tree limb to anchor the resistance-training device.

Soldiers already have mounted several of the systems to Humvees, tanks and cargo crates. The Force Trainer kits were bought by the Army Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation Command.

MWR employees at Fort Belvoir, Va., will send 205 of the combat-boot-sized systems to Iraq and Afghanistan as part of the recreation kits for deployed troops. Three thousand more were issued to Army units for a pilot program at Fort Bragg, where about 100 Soldiers volunteered for train-the-trainer clinics with instructors from Fitness Anywhere, Inc.

Brink Bottom Line: The TRX Suspension Trainer is not  be all end all, have their limitations (as everything does…) but bang for the $$$ and the ability to use them pretty much anywhere (hence the name…) this seems $$$ well spent. For the non soldier, the TRX is a great addition to a home gym, people looking to add more functional type exercise, etc. and I highly recommend it.
