Pilates ProWorks - TRX Pro

TRX pilates studio in Chicago.

TL;DR

TRX Pro is a 50 min suspension/cardio class. The TRX straps create resistance from two sources always at your disposal: your body weight and gravity. Combined with cardio this class is a total body workout.

Format/Equipment

  • All you need is yourself and sneakers!

  • Class starts with a short strength/cardio warm up (think jacks, squats, planks and push-ups) then the TRX fun begins.

  • Class is typically divided into sections: core, legs, and arms. Each section will involve some use of the TRX suspension band - e.g., a core exercise could include performing mountain climbers with your feet suspended in the air or working your arms by doing pull-ups with the TRX band….who knew?!?

  • The instructor is mic-ed and will often demo the more complicated moves. All you have to do is “hang” around for some super fun yet challenging moves ;).

 Hard AF?!

  • TRX Pro is challenging and will make you sweat, but is super fun and doable.

  • Because gravity exists, every exercise feels just a little harder when you are completing them suspended in the air.

  • Expect to be sore in places that are hard to reach with standard exercises.
