Joseph H. Pilates
TRX (Total body Resistance eXercise) is the perfect complement to Pilates or as a stand-alone regime. TRX adds another dimension to your Pilates training, helping you gain additional upper body strength, cardiovascular conditioning, and muscular endurance. Many of our clients have been surprised by how much the use of their Pilates “powerhouse” (deep core muscles) helps them execute TRX exercises, and equally amazed by the intensity and completeness of a workout built around such a simple piece of apparatus!
The TRX suspension trainer is a dynamic, versatile training method that leverages gravity and your bodyweight. In TRX, you use your body weight for a resistance workout affecting every single muscle group, allowing you to perform exercises that help you build strength, power, and improve balance, coordination, flexibility, core and joint stability. By utilizing your own body weight the TRX trainer provides greater performance and functionality than traditional weight training. And you’re in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise – because you can simply adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance, so a beginner can work out right alongside the seasoned athlete because every exercise can be adjusted to just the right resistance.
All classes are taught by TRX-Certified instructors Joy George and Rachel Spuria. These two have decades of combined teaching experience and are certified specifically in TRX. Our classes are limited to 8 participants, ensuring that you get lots of personal attention, and safe, effective instruction.
Although we infuse our Pilates training and principles into all of our TRX classes, you do not have to be a Pilates expert to take a TRX class. After taking a TRX class at Joe’s Place, however, you may decide that you want to take some Pilates training!
What should I Wear?
Regular exercise clothing with clean, indoor-only athletic footwear is all you need. We recommend layering so you can adjust your clothing as you warm up and cool down.
