TRX Incorporated Exercises

What is it?

TRX, which stands for Total Body Resistance Exercise, is a system that utilizes suspension training and full body weight along with gravity for resistance. The TRX system was developed over 20 years ago by a Navy Seal to accommodate all fitness levels. Patients can expect to perform exercises while using straps, cords, rings, ropes, or chains while the equipment is hung from one or multiple anchor points. Because suspension training challenges multiple muscle groups and involves strength, mobility, and balance during a single movement, it is said that it maximizes neuromuscular response and provides a complete and total workout.

During your initial evaluation, your physical therapist will review your symptoms and pre-existing conditions. They will give you a physical assessment to determine your fitness level and develop an individualized treatment plan to create an appropriate course of action to get your body back to working better.

TRX Incorporated Exercises Benefits

How can it help me?

The TRX workout system is both simple to use and easy to understand. Its compact design makes it portable for on the go exercise routines so users don’t have to miss any dedicated fitness schedules. Because it’s effective at targeting multiple muscles it can replace dozens of traditional weights saving users both money and space.

Using TRX has proven to help increase functional strength, balance, flexibility, rotational power, and endurance. Its ability to stimulate and activate the core muscles as well as surrounding stabilizer muscles and joints (shoulders and hips), assist with injury prevention.

After consistent usage patients, trainers, athletes, and clinicians all report these additional observed benefits:
• Reduction in waist circumference.
• Reduced body-fat percentage.
• Decrease in resting diastolic and systolic blood pressure.
• Better back squat, jumping ability, and bench press.
• Improvements in cardiovascular and muscular fitness.
• Greater activation of the traps, triceps, lumbar, and quadriceps.

Quality care that’s accessible

Brooklyn Body Works Physical Therapy began as an idea to bring the highest quality physical therapy to all people in our community. We wanted to offer the best that NYC has in health care while not marginalizing people based on socioeconomic boundaries (race, income, language, religion, etc). We offer a “concierge style service” and continue to accept many commercial insurances, medicare and even medicaid policies.

Since this is a physical therapy session which will require a physical examination and therapeutic exercise (varies by patient), we ask all our patients to come prepared. Please come dressed in loose fitted clothing that will allow for easy mobility, comfort, and access to the area of complaint. In addition we recommend sneakers with soles that grip to prevent slips or falls.

The need for a referral depends on what type of insurance you have. Most insurance plans do not require one, however some insurances do. For example, if you have HIP, you will need a referral from your primary care physician. We ask that you check to see what your health insurance plan requires prior to your initial visit. If you are unsure, please contact our front office and we’ll do our best to determine whether or not you require a referral.
