Workout: TRX on the Beach

Total Body Resistance Exercise

This is a favorite piece of exercise equipment (and I’m not just biased because I’m a TRX instructor) because anyone can use it and you can take it anywhere! Make sure it’s securely mounted and you have some space to work up a sweat πŸ’ͺ🏼

We put together some basic TRX exercises you can do from the comfort of your own home or hanging off the Long Beach boardwalk as I like to do! The most important piece of each exercise is to maintain your plank- keep your core tight and squeeze those glutes πŸ‘

Perform each exercise for 45 seconds each and do 2-3 rounds!
