Total Body Circuit

First thing first.... We have a winner from our GYMBOSS Interval Timer giveaway last week.  Drumroll please.....

Entry #4: Theresa C. from Go Believe Conquer

Congratulations Theresa!  I want to thank each and everyone of you for entering my first official giveaway.  I was overwhelmed by the amount of entries and hope to make awesome giveaways like this a regular event!  

If you follow me on InstaGram you probably already know that this past weekend I became TRX certified.  I am so excited about this.  TRX suspension training is a great tool for me to have when training not only clients but myself.  The number of exercises you can do with these straps is just insane!  Now....I just have to save some money to get my own personal set.  

I left the training totally motivated and full of great ideas (insert evil laugh here).  During the class, we were asked to design and execute a full body workout using the TRX suspension trainer and even though my partner did the actual workout, I could tell it was killer.    

Drawing inspiration from that workout I came up with a total body circuit to share with you.  

After a proper warm up, pick one move from each box and perform the exercise for one minute.  Move from box to box with no rest in between.  After all four exercises are completed rest one minute. 

The great thing about this workout is you can use it a thousand different ways.  You can....
  • continue rotating through the exercises for "x" amount of rounds.  I'd recommend at least 3 rounds. OR
  • continue rounds for "x" time.  Do you only have 30 minutes?  Complete as many rounds as you can!  OR
  • repeat the same exercises for each round OR
  • pick different exercises each round
Think of it like a salad bar- a little of this, a little of that and you never have to have the same thing twice if you don't want!  

*Remember if you choose to perform this workout you are doing so at your own risk.

Your turn: Have you used a suspension trainer like TRX before?  If so, do you use it at the gym or at home?


  1. These are all great moves. I love the TRX at the gym, I wish there were more classes that incorporated them!

  2. Just added you on Instagram! (emegburg) I like that you can mix them up, so it never gets boring. And it's something I can do right now while I'm snowed in. Thank you!

  3. I've used TRX at the gym and would like to buy some. I actually thought about getting one of the cheaper versions. Any idea about the quality of those?

    1. I don't know a whole lot about other brands. I do know that TRX has a special locking loop at the top that keeps the straps from slipping completly through when doing single arm/leg exercises. I was told that not all other brands have that. Sorry, I'm not much help!
