Helping everyone take their workouts to the next level. The JCC is opening up TRX Suspension Training to all JCC Members for free.
“TRX Suspension Training is a very different way for our members to get into shape,” says Assistant Health and Wellness Director Tara Stone. “The system relies on a person’s bodyweight for resistance, allowing you to control your workout.”
To use the TRX straps, simply sign them out at the Health and Wellness Desk. A JCC Floor Staff member will help you set up and take down the straps. The system is only available when the Upper Gym is not already in use by another program.
Using a person’s body weight and gravity, the TRX Suspension Trainer allows for hundreds of different exercises. Started by a former Navy SEAL to keep his teammates in shape while deployed in the field, TRX is designed to be easy and flexible. However, the workout can be intense.
“By allowing all JCC members to use the TRX System on their own, we are hoping more people use this tool,” says Fitness Director Ron Peacock. “It is a great workout, but many of our members are not as familiar with this type of exercise.”
To help you get the most out of the TRX System, the JCC is offering personal and small group training sessions working with the TRX System. Working out with a Personal Trainer individually or in a group can have a huge impact on your workouts or fitness level. Training classes will be held on Mondays starting on November 11 from noon-12:45 p.m. and Thursdays starting November 14 from 5:45-6:30 p.m. Classes cost $72 per session. To register, call the Health and Wellness desk at 502-238-2727.
