Replace an Entire Gym with Suspension Straps!

Updated: Jul 19, 2021

Looking for a way to say strong and fit, both at home and on the road? Suspension straps may be just what you are looking for!

Suspension straps are an inexpensive and convenient way to build strength wherever you are. They can easily fit into a small bag, and can attach to a mount, a tree, or monkey bars in a playground near you! Suspension straps work against your own bodyweight, so there is no need to use any extra weights. The more you leverage your body against gravity, the more difficult the moves become. And unlike using a machine at the gym, suspension straps force you to engage your core muscles- the important muscles in the middle of your body that help create the stability to drive your ball farther! There is a saying in personal training that is quoted often- "You can’t fire a cannon out of a canoe"! Developing a strong core is critical to having a healthy movement practice, including swinging a golf club!

Our favorite brand of suspension straps are made by TRX. They are the pioneers in making this technology accessible to anybody. Their products are sturdy and reliable. But they are not the only ones available, and today there are several affordable variations that are adult available for purchase online. Here is an example of a simple workout program that can be used with suspension straps! The cool part about a program like this is that it can be used anywhere. I have a favorite spot in my neighborhood where I can attach these to a tree where I can get a great workout in with a fantastic view of the Salt Lake Valley! No gym membership required!
