What is slingtraining?
Like so many fitness machines, the sling trainer has its origins in the military. The Navy Seal Randy Hetrick was looking for a way to stay fit during foreign missions without having to carry dumbbells and weight.
The sling trainer found its first application with Scandinavian physiotherapists. However, these were by far not as suitable for mass production as the current models.
The sling trainers used by Randy during the military era were also not what you would call a TRX® today. After his military time, Hetrick looked for a way to make the device suitable for mass production. After many experiments and prototypes, the first TRX® was presented in 2004. At that time still under the name Travelfit.
The device hit like a bomb and was sold out immediately. It soon became apparent that customers were using the TRX not only for travel, but also to keep fit at home. So the name was changed from Travelfit to TRX.

Many people consider buying gym rings or a sling trainer. That depends entirely on the objective. Rings are especially recommended for the use of acrobatic movements and in the crossfit area.
For a functional fitness training, however, the TRX® offers much better conditions.
Especially at the beginning many people ask themselves where they can attach the TRX® Suspension Trainer. The question is rather, where can' t you attach the Suspension Trainer?
The TRX® Suspension Trainer can be attached almost anywhere by using the door anchor or loop. To do this, the end piece is hung on one side of the door and hooked in by closing the door. Afterwards you should pull the loops strongly to ensure that the door anchor fits tightly.
With stable wooden doors no damage can occur either. The anchor and the seams are designed so that there is no abrasion or pressure marks. If you prefer to fix the device somewhere else, you can use pipes, trees or poles. For this purpose, the TRX® Suspension Trainer is simply wrapped around and fastened like this.
With the TRX® Xmount, it is even possible to attach a permanent fixture to the wall or ceiling. This guarantees safe and firm training with the TRX® Suspension Trainer.
