The sleekest, most sophisticated machines in the world hold much less appeal if they are not framed in a comfortable and inviting environment. These simple truths mean that if a facility owner or manager is not paying enough attention to floor design, they are missing out on subtle ways to attract new members and retain the current ones.

Do you remember swinging from a tree branch or pulling up on the monkey bars when you were younger? Those were variations of what is called suspension training, a form of fitness that’s becoming more popular for integrating the body and mind into workouts.
You may have seen TRX® Suspension Trainer™ at your gym or learned about our new Synrgy360 training system that incorporates suspension training, but it’s also a practical workout you can try at home. Suspension training involves an apparatus made of nylon straps and handles that you can attach to a sturdy anchor in your home, or even in a door jam with a door anchor. You then use your body weight as the resistance to perform exercises that build power, strength, core stability, flexibility and balance.
