Stretching Their Training Options

By on 382

Members who work out with the TRX system at the Club at White Oaks, one of Niagara’s premiere fitness facilities, certainly do more than just hang around!

Though being suspended from a series of straps is the essence of TRX, suspension training builds strength, balance, joint stability and flexibility by using body weight for resistance.  As you’ll see from the video on our site, participants work at their individual paces, but enjoy the support and camaraderie of a group exercise class and the supervision of a coach.

Resistance training is all about moving the body (or parts of the body) against some form of resistance – and the TRX makes it possible to use our own body weight as that resistant force.  The biggest benefit it offers is the opportunity to strengthen your muscles, tendons and even bones in a very site-specific manner.  When you pull or push against a resisting element, your muscles contract forcefully.  This shortens the muscle and transmits a force to the tendon, which attaches the muscle to the bone and is responsible for its movement.  This very healthy stress helps to encourage greater bone remodeling or building in that area.  Resistance training using the TRX system therefore is a great way to “stress” your bones and makes it possible for you reduce the possibility of fractures and injury.

It’s all part of the White Oaks strategy to offer cutting edge techniques and technology combined with a sense of belonging that makes healthy living fun.
