If you’ve been in a gym in the last 10 years, it’s highly likely you’ve seen those long, yellow straps hanging from an anchor point above your head. While they might look like they’re fit for a trapeze artist, these straps — called TRX suspension trainers — are actually a great way to stretch, tone, strengthen and tighten your entire body.

TRX training uses your own body weight to challenge your strength and balance, and can be used for yoga, pilates, strength training, HIIT and more. However, the absence of dumbells or barbells doesn’t mean you’ll breeze through this workout. Different angles, movements and workouts will test you like you’ve probably never been tested before, even if you’re a dedicated gym-goer.

Samsung and Under Armour have collaborated to offer an authentic fitness and nutrition experience by combining Samsung’s revolutionary wearable device with Under Armour’s Connected Fitness suite of apps. Whether you’re tracking your nutrition, daily workouts or running routes, this best-in-class partnership makes it easier to reach your personal goals and achieve things you never thought possible.

Before you grab those straps just yet, it’s important to learn a few basics to get the most out of your TRX training. For example, did you know that you can strengthen your core on most TRX moves — even if it’s not a dedicated ‘core’ exercise. Six pack, here we come!

This short video provides beginner tips, workout ideas and adjustment instructions so you can TRX-train your way to your best self yet.
