ORLANDO – TRX, the industry leader in functional training and creator of Suspension Training® bodyweight exercise, will expand their commercial fitness education offerings with the release of “TRX For Yoga” at the 2016 IHRSA Convention and Trade Show at the Orange County Convention Center. The new commercial offering provides yoga studios, health clubs and gyms a cutting-edge take on the yoga experience that can help facilities differentiate their group programming, while increasing member acquisition and retention.  

“TRX For Yoga” is a professional education course designed to fuse two of the most popular and effective disciplines in the fitness industry today - Suspension Training and Yoga. The course provides fitness professionals the education to perform and lead full-blown “TRX For Yoga” classes to increase strength and flexibility while allowing scalability throughout different yoga poses. It also allows instructors to incorporate modules of “TRX For Yoga” into their existing yoga class making for an ideal way to merge TRX and Yoga.

“Our emphasis goes beyond ‘products’ and emphasizes real solutions that enhance the training experience and positively impact bottom line membership and revenue goals, and that’s exactly what this new offering represents,” said Brynne Elliott, Senior Director Training. “’TRX For Yoga” allows facilities to differentiate and drive incremental revenue through a dynamic new program, integrating two of the industry’s most effective functional training disciplines.” 

Yoga is a popular and effective fitness modality, but in today’s ever evolving world of changing up routines to avoid plateauing, it’s important to mix up programming by incorporating various tools, including the TRX, which is a natural fit in a yoga environment. In fact, Suspension Training and Yoga have experienced tremendous growth over the last ten years. According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Heath (NIH), the number of Americans practicing yoga has doubled to 21 million in just the last decade. Furthermore, 2,800 health and fitness professionals from American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) predicted their top 20 fitness trends of 2016 in its 10th Annual Survey where of the top five trends; TRX fell under three of them.

“Combining Suspension Training with Yoga is further testimony to the incredible versatility and efficacy of the TRX Suspension Trainer. It’s also a proof point that TRX is more than a company just making a product, we provide a product and the programming to make it an all-encompassing package for commercial fitness owners,” said Chris Frankel, TRX Head of Human Performance. “We believe this program respects the integrity and the powerful mind-body benefits of Yoga, while at the same time, enhancing the experience with Suspension Training principles, and that’s something we’re very proud of.”  

The “TRX For Yoga” course includes detailed instructional videos, a follow-along workbook, and precise benchmarks to gauge comprehension to prepare for the final test to become a certified instructor. Upon completion of the course, fitness professionals will be accredited for five hours, be well versed in the benefits of the program while being able to properly perform and instruct yoga sequences using the TRX Suspension Trainer.
