We feature TRX equipment in our training sessions along with our TRX fitness classes because it’s easy to use anywhere and your current bodyweight to provide all the resistance you need while targeting any muscle group. Unlike dumbbells or weight machines, a TRX Suspension Trainer allows you to easily twist and turn the handles while taking a lot of pressure off your elbow and shoulder joints as well as your legs and hips.


Want to increase the intensity of your workout? Simply move closer to the anchor point or you can reduce it by moving away. For lower body exercises, a TRX Suspension Trainer can give you the assistance you need as you learn new exercises. This TRX Circuit is designed for all fitness levels.


H3’s TRX Circuit


  • TRX Squat
  • TRX Row
  • TRX Pushup

Option A: Timed Workout

  • Set a timer for 20 minutes
  • 15 reps for each movement/exercise


After all exercises are completed that is considered one round. Concentrate on form and complete as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes, resting as needed. Make a note of how many rounds you complete in this workout so you can compare and track your progress.


Option B: HIIT Training

  • Set an interval timer for 30 seconds of work and 15 seconds of rest time between the exercises.
  • Concentrate on form and complete as many reps as you can within the 30 second of work time.
  • Rest for 1 minute (or less) after each round.


After all exercises are completed that is considered one round. Complete 3-5 rounds, depending on intense each round is for you. Use this Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE) Scale to rate your intensity level.


A TRX Suspension Trainer may be a great investment if you want to add in a strength component without purchasing multiple weight sets. Plus, it’s lightweight and takes up very little space so they are great for home gyms and provide the ability to train outdoors.
