In the world of exercise, trends come and go. There is boot camp, zumba, pilates and so much more. The most recent type of workout to hit the exercise world is TRX. The name sounds a little intimidating, but it is a workout that will provide you with strength, flexibility and balance. TRX is made up of nylon straps that you secure onto any steady surface and which provides you with a full body workout. Once the straps are secured, there are a number of different workouts that can be done with them to help you tone up all over. The best part about this workout is that it can be done by beginners, regulars and even experts. If you're interested, TRX classes are provided at a number of different gyms or you can even buy an online kit to do it on your own.  It's even something that can be done in your dorm room- as long as your roommates stay back a safe distance. As UNH students, we're lucky because the Hamel Rec Center features TRX classes, so stop by and see if it is something that may interest you!
