TRX Suspension Training
The TRX is a suspension training system developed by a navy seal. Picture a set of compact gymnast rings that can be adjustable and easily set up anywhere with foot straps added.
As the training industry adapts and evolves, the TRX has become one of the most popular pieces of fitness equipment due to the results it produces and how enjoyable it can be to use.
Almost any traditional exercise can be modified, progressed or regressed using the TRX. TRX training involves exercises using your own body weight to build strength, balance, coordination, and core stability.
At Hustle Fitness, we incorporate the TRX in flexibility and mobility work for injury prevention before, after, and during our workout programs. The TRX is the total package when it comes to fitness training.
Not only is the TRX a versatile piece of equipment for getting results, but our clients enjoy using it!
Kettlebells, Dumbbells, & Barbells
Dumbbells and kettlebells are an important training tool due to their versatility and high level of effectiveness. Both pieces of equipment can be used for double arm and single arm exercises and are great at building strength and stability in the shoulders, arms, wrists, and grip.
A kettlebell looks like a cannonball with a handle attached to it. Due to the kettlebell’s unique center of mass, it becomes a great tool for movements such as the swing. Swings are great because they can be repeated for a high number of repetitions and bestow both cardiovascular and metabolic benefits.
Kettlebell movements tend to be more dynamic and therefore require time and practice. However, kettlebells can be a great tool in injury prevention by building shoulder stability and strengthening the glutes and the rest of the posterior chain. Kettlebells and dumbbells are excellent tools for building total body strength and for fat loss.
Barbells are used in strongman, Crossfit, and Olympic lifting competitions. The squat, bench press, and stiff leg deadlift are cornerstones of strength training programs.
Traditional Barbell training can be more dangerous than body weight exercises, dumbbell or kettlebell training due to the large load that can be applied to the bar. However, these heavy loads are best at building strength and power.
We believe in teaching and perfecting technique on these lifts before advancing the load. Not everyone is ready to perform certain exercises with a barbell, but if this is what you enjoy, with time and focus, you can perform and master these fitness
Resistance Bands & Foam Rollers
We use resistance bands for core stability, muscle activation, and corrective work. In addition to using bands to activate posterior chain muscles (band pulls and band walks), we use bands to strengthen the rotator cuff (rotator ex) and strengthen the obliques using a pallof press.
These exercises can be grouped under corrective work because they strengthen muscles which become weak with a sedentary lifestyle.
Foam rolling is an integral part of a workout program due to the corrective nature of the exercises. Foam rolling improves joint range of motion, corrects muscle imbalances, and reduces joint pain.
We start and end every session with self myofascial release or SMR. SMR is beneficial because it breaks up adhesions in the muscle tissue and helps the muscle relax. This helps with blood circulation and speeds up the recovery process. Foam rolling is great for speeding up recovery time between workouts.
More Fitness Equipment
Battle Ropes, Airdyne Bike, Concept 2 Rower, Jump Rope, Medicine Balls, Agility, Ladders, Sled, and Prowler.
These are all tools used during metabolic work. We generally end each session with a metabolic finisher where the athlete is performing a set of repetitions on one or more of these pieces of equipment for a time interval followed by a period of rest.
Battle rope (:30 work / :30 rest) for 4 sets. 2 min total work.
During the consultation, we will ask more about your goals and learn more about what you are looking for and see if we are the right fit. The next step would be to schedule an in person consultation and 1-on-1 workout with a coach during the phone consultation.
