Having never done TRX I was nervous about what this class would entail. For anyone who doesn’t know, TRX is a type of workout that involves suspension training (I added a picture). This particular class involved both TRX, Pilates and Barre so it was the ultimate fitness class for toning. At first we warmed up on mats just doing basic push ups, and then moved over to the barre where we did a series of toning exercises with a small ball and resistance band. Following this portion, we then went over and used the TRX. This class was AMAZING! It was such a good workout. I felt crippled the next day because we literally worked every part of the body. What was also amazing was that there was only 5 of us in the class so we got so much individual help. The class was difficult, but was so fun and went by fast thanks to Katy the incredible instructor.
Katy is a young, vibrant, encouraging and upbeat instructor. I talked to her before and after class and found out she is a dancer, and is interested in musicals. So I immediately connected with her! I told her it was my first time with TRX and she did a great job of making sure I was doing everything correctly and safely. Katy did an amazing job of giving everyone individual attention. She was so encouraging and really knows how to make a great atmosphere. First off, her playlist was great. Music helps any workout. During the core section she blasted fast paced music so we could tune out our thoughts. I especially liked how she broke the class up. She pushed us hard, but knew when to move onto the next thing. So I never got bored or felt like I couldn’t complete anything. I really really hope to take this class again! I LOVED it! Checkout her insta @therealslimkaty
PE has TRX classes, as well as personal training opportunities. The facility is really small. Their are two front rooms where personal training happens, and then a back room that is for barre and TRX classes. They provide lockers and towels.
