It helps us deliver the fastest results to our clients in the shortest amount of time -
Period. If you’ve never used one before we’re not surprised, it’s only been around for a few years and doesn’t really look like much.
Two unassuming yellow and black hanging straps doesn’t look that bad, right?
Those two straps are packed with enough power to challenge NFL super bowl champ Drew Brees and adaptable enough to give a great workout to clients in their 70′s – it’s that great.
Here are the top reasons you need to start using the TRX.
Reason #1 – Faster Results
Doing sets and reps of biceps curls, inner thighs, and crunches followed by an hour of cardio is so 2007. There’s no reason you have to spend any more than 3 hours working out a week to see amazing results. The TRX is a main component in kicking your workout into after burn mode.
Every move you do on the TRX requires that you uses more than 1 muscle group forcing you to work harder than you ever have before. A simple bicep curl turns into a core blasting total body move. And as we all know the more muscle you use the faster you build muscle and burn fat.
Reason #2 – New Moves
Exercise burnout is probably the main reason people quit an exercise program (maybe after starting one on January 1st?). The coolest thing about the TRX is that there is so much untapped ground that it’s almost impossible to get bored. With countless ways to make even the simplest moves harder I’ll be impressed if I ever reach the limits of the TRX.
The TRX plank takes a normal plank and puts in on steroids. With names like scorpions and atomic push-ups you can’t go wrong.
Reason #3 – Huge Community
The TRX community is super cool. Free workouts you can find on-line, free Q and A, help finding TRX training in your area, and a whole lot more makes www.fitnessanywhere.com a really valuable resource for any fitness enthusiast. Even if all you want is a great workout from a certified trainer it’s good to know that the workouts you’re given are backed by a community that helping one another become better.
Reason #4 – All Core, All the Time
Like I said above you can’t get away with simple isolated movements on the TRX (and why would you want to?). But the coolest thing is that your core muscles are used in every single movement. Back, shoulders, chest, and on and on. Every move makes your belly work. This not only helps melt fat, but it builds strong learn muscle and keeps your posture rocking (good posture is sexy, remember?).

7 benefits of regular physical activity
You know exercise is good for you, but do you know how good?
How exercise can improve your life.
No. 1: Exercise controls weight
Exercise can help prevent excess weight gain or help maintain weight loss. When you engage in physical activity, you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you burn. You don't need to set aside large chunks of time for exercise to reap weight-loss benefits. If you can't do an actual workout, get more active throughout the day in simple ways — by taking the stairs instead of the elevator or revving up your household chores.
Q1: How many calories do you need to burn to lose weight???
No. 2: Exercise combats health conditions and diseases
No matter what your current weight, being active boosts high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or "good," cholesterol and decreases unhealthy triglycerides. This one-two punch keeps your blood flowing smoothly, which decreases your risk of cardiovascular diseases. In fact, regular physical activity can help you prevent or manage a wide range of health problems and concerns, including stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, depression, certain types of cancer, arthritis and falls.
No. 3: Exercise improves mood
Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that may leave you feeling happier and more relaxed. You may also feel better about your appearance and yourself when you exercise regularly, which can boost your confidence and improve your self-esteem.
No. 4: Exercise boosts energy
Regular physical activity can improve your muscle strength and boost your endurance. Exercise and physical activity deliver oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and help your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. And when your heart and lungs work more efficiently, you have more energy to go about your daily chores.
No. 5: Exercise promotes better sleep
Struggling to fall asleep? Or to stay asleep?
Regular physical activity can help you fall asleep faster and deepen your sleep. Just don't exercise too close to bedtime, or you may be too energized to fall asleep.
No. 6: Exercise puts the spark back into your sex life
Do you feel too tired or too out of shape to enjoy physical intimacy?
Regular physical activity can leave you feeling energized and looking better, which may have a positive effect on your sex life. But there's more to it than that. Regular physical activity can lead to enhanced arousal for women. And men who exercise regularly are less likely to have problems with erectile dysfunction than are men who don't exercise.
No. 7: Exercise can be fun
Exercise and physical activity can be a fun way to spend some time. It gives you a chance to unwind, enjoy the outdoors or simply engage in activities that make you happy. Physical activity can also help you connect with family or friends in a fun social setting. So, take a dance class, hit the hiking trails or join a soccer team. Find a physical activity you enjoy, and just do it. If you get bored, try something new.
The bottom line on exercise
Exercise and physical activity are a great way to feel better, gain health benefits and have fun. As a general goal, aim for at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day. If you want to lose weight or meet specific fitness goals, you may need to exercise more. Remember to check with your doctor before starting a new exercise program, especially if you have any health concerns.

Specific: A specific goal has a much greater chance of being accomplished than a general goal. To set a specific goal you must answer the six “W” questions:
*Who: Who is involved?
*What: What do I want to accomplish?
*Where: Identify a location.
*When: Establish a time frame.
*Which: Identify requirements and constraints.
*Why: Specific reasons, purpose or benefits of accomplishing the goal.
EXAMPLE: A general goal would be, “Get in shape.” But a specific goal would say, “Join a health club and workout 3 days a week.”
Measurable - Establish concrete criteria for measuring progress toward the attainment of each goal you set.
When you measure your progress, you stay on track, reach your target dates, and experience the exhilaration of achievement that spurs you on to continued effort required to reach your goal.
To determine if your goal is measurable, ask questions such as……
How much? How many?
How will I know when it is accomplished?
Attainable – When you identify goals that are most important to you, you begin to figure out ways you can make them come true. You develop the attitudes, abilities, skills, and financial capacity to reach them. You begin seeing previously overlooked opportunities to bring yourself closer to the achievement of your goals.
You can attain most any goal you set when you plan your steps wisely and establish a time frame that allows you to carry out those steps. Goals that may have seemed far away and out of reach eventually move closer and become attainable, not because your goals shrink, but because you grow and expand to match them. When you list your goals you build your self-image. You see yourself as worthy of these goals, and develop the traits and personality that allow you to possess them.
Realistic- To be realistic, a goal must represent an objective toward which you are both willing and able to work. A goal can be both high and realistic; you are the only one who can decide just how high your goal should be. But be sure that every goal represents substantial progress.
A high goal is frequently easier to reach than a low one because a low goal exerts low motivational force. Some of the hardest jobs you ever accomplished actually seem easy simply because they were a labor of love.
Timely – A goal should be grounded within a time frame. With no time frame tied to it there’s no sense of urgency. If you want to lose 10 lbs, when do you want to lose it by? “Someday” won’t work. But if you anchor it within a timeframe, “by May 1st”, then you’ve set your unconscious mind into motion to begin working on the goal.
Your goal is probably realistic if you truly believe that it can be accomplished. Additional ways to know if your goal is realistic is to determine if you have accomplished anything similar in the past or ask yourself what conditions would have to exist to accomplish this goal.
Justin's family and mine have been really good friends for many years, a friendship that's more like some family you get to choose, which is how I earned the affectionate title as Justin's aunt Rachel.
Knowing about my frustrations of physical limitations and health issues, Justin suggested that we could work together, be workout buddies. For me, it might mean feeling better, maybe a little stronger, more energy. And although Justin said it could help to hone his skills in helping those with limitations, I'm pretty sure that in his generosity, he just wanted to help me, while leaving my pride intact.
His passion for the gym is no secret, and seeing how skillfully he'd sculpted his own body's definition, it took very little convincing for me to try.
So what exactly is a personal trainer? To be honest, and more than a little ashamed, I'd always considered them to be those pretty, decorative people at the gym, who, while most helpful in learning the equipment, were more about bringing in new business.
Talk about misconception!! The amount of knowledge regarding the body's parts, musculature, systems, interactions, and function that is required to become licensed as a personal trainer is extremely difficult and frankly, would intimidate a "brainy" peron like me. So, my sincere apologies to all you beautiful, extremely smart, personal trainers out there, for my silly preconceived notions about what it is that you do. The difference between wandering around the gym, trying to decide which machines might work for you, and having a knowledgeable trainer tailor-fit a program just for you, is like the difference between traveling in a cattle car or going first class.
I believe that training for over 30 years with one of the most highly respected karate Sensei's in NY makes me a pretty good judge of teaching skills. So aside from the required learned skills, I've found Justin's patience, dedication and most importantly his intuitiveness, as to just how far to push, to be his natural gifts that will take him far in his chosen career and life in general. And while he is very serious about helping me accomplish the most that I can, there is no doubt in the fun and pleasure he gets from my every success.
So after 6 months of working with Justin, do I now look like a 20 year old model? I'm afraid that miracle would require a plastic surgeon with magical powers. Besides, it's not what this 65 year old grandmother was looking for. I will tell you that I've cut my diabetes and arthritis meds by half. I've regained most of my lost flexibility. I feel toned, love the way my clothes fit, there is now a bounce to my step and with each physical challenge that I conquer, I feel elated. Working out with Justin has also relieved some depression issues that were weighing me down. It's impossible to be depressed after working out for an hour in an atmosphere of achievement, pampering and kick-ass fun.
If you have any questions about my experience in working with Justin, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you're considering this positive adventure in self improvement, I strongly recommend that you go for it"!
As Justin says "you deserve it".

No inventory, I just post links on my website or run ads online to drive traffic. The initial investment to start is $40.00 and concurrently charging me $15.00 / month to stay a "coach".
I find this to be a great way to supplement income long-term but I need $$$$$!!!!! And I mean A.S.A.P.!!!!
