TRX Suspension Training

Lake Forest Health & Fitness Center is committed to offering you a variety of ways to meet your fitness needs, including our popular TRX® Suspension Training.

TRX is a highly portable performance training system that leverages gravity and your bodyweight to enable hundreds of exercises, which can be instantly modified to reach any fitness or training goal. The easily scalable nature of TRX Suspension Training makes it a perfect choice for any fitness level.

TRX training sessions are 45 minutes in length and can take place in an individual or group setting. One-on-one training sessions are $57, and partner training sessions starting from $35 per person. Schedule your session today by contacting Kristina Simone at (847) 535-7038 or

TRX Suspension Training Principles

Three principles enable you to instantly scale TRX Suspension Training movements.

  • Vector Resistance Principle — For most standing movements, positioning your feet closer to the anchor point will increase resistance and heighten the challenge. Stepping farther away from the anchor point will decrease resistance and make movements easier to execute.
  • Pendulum Principle — For ground-based movements, moving your feet away from the anchor point will increase resistance and heighten the challenge. Moving your feet towards the anchor point or behind the anchor point will decrease resistance and make movements easier to execute.
  • Stability Principle — In general, performing movements with a narrower base of support or unilaterally (using just one arm or just one leg instead of both arms or both legs) will increase the challenge of TRX movements. The wider your base of support, the more stable you will be during TRX movements and the less challenging they will be to perform.

“I have been doing TRX for close to a year, and it has really helped bring my workouts to another level. My muscles have become more defined, and my core has never been stronger. Plus, my former back issues have almost completely disappeared, thanks to low-impact workouts with the TRX.”
