We’ll let you in on a little secret: Every TRX® workout is a core workout. It doesn’t matter if you’re targeting hamstrings or triceps or ankle stabilizers, your core will be working when you’re using your TRX Suspension Trainer™. That’s why lots of folks feel sore all over after their first Suspension Training® workout. And core-specific sessions? Those unlock a whole new level of strength.
The good news is any TRX core workout can be adapted to your body’s needs and abilities. To prove it, we’re sharing a quick TRX Training Club® core class with Coach Miguel Vargas below. Before we dive in, we’ll guide you through setting up your TRX Suspension Trainer and adjusting the straps to the correct length for the class.

From unboxing to working out, getting started with your Suspension Trainer is a shockingly fast process. You just need your TRX Straps—what’s officially known as the Suspension Trainer—and an anchor.
The Door Anchor is a black strap with a loop on one end and a padded square on the other end. You can set up your Door Anchor over any hinged door for your workout.
The Suspension Anchor is the long, yellow or black strap with a carabiner at one end and loop at the opposite end. You can wrap it around a basketball pole, a tree trunk, an exposed beam or a sturdy swing set. Both the Door Anchor and the Suspension Anchor come with every Suspension Trainer.
