West Seneca, N.Y. (WKBW) - Whether you have succeeded with your workout resolutions since January or are ready to get in shape for the summer, there is one program that can help you reach your goal.
“There are always people who want to get in shape. This is our TRX program that we just started at the YMCA,” Southtowns YMCA TRX Trainer Sara Vanremmen said.
Vanremmen said this is a unique way to workout.
“To be able to train anywhere you go. It's the kind of equipment that you can take with you so it can be on the road, in a gym, outside or at your home.” Vanremmen said.
Men and women in the military started this TRX program.
“It was developed by Navy SEALS who were on location and needed to stay in top training shape. When they are away and on missions, they don't have access to the top equipment. These SEALS used straps and parachutes and really anything that they could find where they were to hook up this system. That was the original TRX,” Vanremmen said.
Samantha Derenoff just had a baby ten months ago and need a new plan to get back in shape.
“I feel like it helps your whole body a lot in the core which I needed after having a baby so that was the best benefit of taking the class,” Derenoff said.
All you need is one special TRX rope and the workout is yours to master.
“It's standing up to train and it's all about the core. Your core is engaged the whole time throughout workout. You can adapt it to anything you do throughout the day like picking up groceries, moving things around, twisting, stretching, things like that,” Vanremmen said.
The Southtowns YMCA offers classes throughout the week to help members learn full proof techniques of the workout. Derenoff said she got the results she wanted and more.
“You can feel it the next day and that's the best kind of workout when you can feel what you did the day before,” Derenoff said.
