Summary: I've been using the TRX for about 3 years. It was my "secret" training supplement when I was a member of an old guys fitness/martial arts group. I have seen what I think are very nice gains in physique as well as noticeable improvements in useable, real strength. What I like about it is you can use your imagination to create all kinds of movements for many muscle groups. It only takes me 5 - 10 minutes a day and the results are there. I recommend this product.
Summary: I purchased the TRX Suspension Training Pro Pack from Amazon after trying it with an Irish Rugby team. Knowing that most all body areas of focus will exercise most all other areas of the body at the same time is excellent.
Summary: This training system is amazingly effective and is worth every penny. I have an anchor attached to my garage ceiling for 360 degrees of space. The videos are very well done, the instructions are easy to follow, the workouts are no joke. I would recommend for all abilities because modification is explained in the video. A must buy!!
Summary: I bought this product on a recommendation of my personal trainer friend. I work out 6 days a week and I am always looking for some different to add to the mix. Great outdoor product that you can use just about anywhere. The ab exercises with this are some of the hardest I have come across.

Summary: This review was geared for another product, but the comparisons I've discovered will help you make an educated decision. Notice I gave this product Four Stars. I stand by it, even though the following review may seem to be geared toward another product. So, I've owned the TRX force kit for about five years, XFit Rings for about three years, and the Jungle Gym XT for about a month now, and I have to say the Jungle Gym XT is the Best Over-all product, in almost all...
Summary: I competed in a fitness show (figure class) last year that I trained for with the usual free weights and gym machines, without getting amazing results in terms of overall muscle conditioning. A few months after the show I came across the TRX and have been using it for 6 months, with amazing results. Not only can I continue to focus on body sculpting but it also provides a higher intensity workout, so I burn fat and condition/build muscle at the same time.
Summary: For what it is, the TRX is overpriced. It can't possibly cost more than $5 to manufacture something that costs almost $200. For what it does, providing a portable, functional workout that is better for most people than a traditional gym strength training workout, it is a good value. There are other products out there, like the Jungle Gym, but none are easier to use than the TRX, and Fitness Anywhere has done a good job of providing education and training.
