What we love about it: The portability factor. Unassembled, the Rip Trainer fits into a small bag that can easily fit into a suitcase or duffle. When you reach your destination, you can attach it to a tree, pole or door. Some of the exercises don't even require an anchor point making it the perfect fitness tool that can be used virtually anywhere. No heavy weights need to be transported because the Rip Trainer relies on your own body weight.
What else we love about it: Resistance and cardio in a single piece of fitness equipment? Need we say more?
What the experts say: Trish Gallen, Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) and Owner of Trish Gallen Fitness and Yoga, has created a dynamic fitness program called Method 360. The Method 360 full body workout maximizes an hour by tapping into the science and principles of your body's metabolic process. Method 360 has transformed my body. I took notice when Trish and her team of expert fitness instructors began incorporating the TRX Rip Trainer and TRX Suspension Trainer into group fitness classes and with their personal training clients.
Trish Gallen had this to say when I asked her to tell me why she uses TRX tools in her fitness programs: "The Rip Trainer has been very beneficial to my clients and in my classes. I love the element of rotation and resistance working together, which is otherwise very hard to attain. Also, it is great for clients who need to keep the heart rate up but can't physically handle the pounding and wear and tear of running or plyometric training. Although the benefits of the Rip Trainer are notable, the TRX suspension trainer is in a class by itself. Thankfully, these two pieces work beautifully in concert."
When it was time add a new piece of fitness equipment to my arsenal for home use, the TRX Rip Trainer was a wise choice. At slightly less than $200, it's a budget friendly way to help you stick with your New Year's resolutions that you made just two short months ago. (Remember those?) And by my calculations, summer is just about three months away! So grab a TRX Rip Trainer and get your core ready for bathing suit season!
