About the TRX Company
TRX was born when former Navy SEAL Randy Hetrick decided he wanted to incorporate some of the impromptu training systems used by SEALs in tight quarters with limited equipment. The SEALS have had to keep in shape in the harshest of conditions and in constricted spaces for decades, and their methods translate very well into a system for modern civilians.
After extensive research and development to put all of his knowledge into a low-cost, easy-to-use system, Hetrick finally came up with TRX. TRX Suspension Trainers allow for a complete workout program that meets the standards of professional athletes and the U.S. military.
