On Wednesday I met our good friends Matt and Anne at the FFC club up on Halsted (Boystown to those of you that know Chicago) after work for a TRX session with Trainer Josh. I love to strength train and after I I took a stab at being a personal trainer a few years ago I am a big proponent of functional strength - strength training with movement across multiple planes and utilizing multiple muscle groups. Enter TRX. Or fun with straps. Here's a snap shot of what TRX is.
While the session was a solid ass whooping the equipment set-up was right out on the main floor. We were definitely on display like a badly choreographed circus act...club patrons walking around us with their "wtf" stares. No matter. I'm going to sign up for enough sessions to take me through the end of March. Ironman strength work be damned. By April I want to be able to do this.
