What is TRX?
The TRX Suspension Trainer is the original, best-in-class workout system that leverages gravity and your bodyweight to perform hundreds of exercises. You're in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise - because you can simply adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance.
The TRX Suspension Trainer:
- Delivers a fast, effective total-body workout
Helps build a rock-solid core
Increases muscular endurance
Benefits people of all fitness levels (pro athletes to seniors)
Can be set-up anywhere (gym, home, hotel or outside)
By utilizing your own bodyweight, the TRX Suspension Trainer provides greater performance and functionality than large exercise machines costing thousands of dollars.
USED BY TRAINERS, ATHLETES AND THE U.S.MILITARY
Thousands of people at all fitness levels now train on the TRX: From everyday people who just want to feel and look their best to some of the world's most elite athletes. The TRX is used routinely by all four branches of the military, and can be found in the locker rooms of:
- Major League Baseball teams
- National League Baseball teams
- UFC fighters
- Olympic-level cyclists, swimmers & runners

Lose weight, increase strength, feel and look better!
August 25, 2013,
Piedmont Physical Therapy is very excited to announce the launch of GRAVITY at our new facility beginning in November 2013. Diane and I just completed our GRAVITY instructor training and can hardly wait to get started with classes. For those of you who are wondering "What is GRAVITY?", Total Gym defines it as bodyweight training using incline plane resistance. As the saying goes, a picture (see above) is worth a thousand words, so I'll let GRAVITY speak for itself.
Resistance or strength training should be a part of any balanced workout program, and GRAVITY training provides a large variety of unique exercises using bodyweight to supply the resistance. For this reason it tends to be safer and more likely to allow a person to succeed than traditional free weights and target-specific machines. Patients and clients like GRAVITY because adaptable bodyweight training allows for individuals at any fitness level to acquire the benefits of resistance training with safe and effective exercise progression. For example, when comparing the squat exercise in the standing position to a squat on an inclined plane, the incline position alone can decrease the overall compressive forces on hip, knee and spinal joints in particular.
I could on and on about this piece of equipment, but come in and see for yourself.
I also want to mention that Diane will be expanding enrollment in her Pilates class and incorporating fusion classes with GRAVITY.
To your health,
-David Ebbecke, DPT
