Is the TRX Pro Pack plus Door Anchor Good for Fitness Buffs?

For people who travel a lot for business or pleasure and donít want to miss a workout while theyíre on the road, the TRX Pro Pack + Door Anchor can be a lifesaver.† It gives you a great workout almost anywhere at any time, and it can also be used at home in lieu of expensive home fitness equipment.

I purchased the TRX Pro Pack + Door Anchor for about $200 and it was well worth the investment. Instead of spending a ton on a gym membership that I wouldnít be able to use often enough, this was really the perfect solution.

What it includes

The TRX Pro Pack + Door Anchor includes the TRX suspension training P2 Model, the door anchor and storage bag as well as two bonus workouts focused on an endurance circuit and a metabolic blast. It also includes a 65-minute basic training DVD and 35-page workout guide. A 30-day, 100% satisfaction guarantee is also included so that if you decide you donít like it, it can be returned for any reason.

What it provides

The TRX Pro Pack + Door Anchor will help you increase strength, including core strength, flexibility, and it also allows you to spot train areas you really want to improve upon. It is obviously not a piece of equipment that will give you a cardio workout, but I found by adding a 30-40 minute jog along with it, youíll get the ideal all around workout that you need, where ever you might be.

Instructions

The TRX Pro Pack + Door Anchor comes with a basic training workout video which is helpful for beginners. It includes a workout guide with tips, tricks and illustrations that will help improve your exercise routine.

I didnít think the DVD was that great; itís just okay if you donít have the option of personal instruction, but I would recommend getting some in-person instruction if at all possible. Good technique is imperative for a good workout. †If you have a friend or, even better a personal trainer, who can critique your workout, youíll be ahead of the game.

Setup

The TRX Pro Pack + Door Anchor is very easy to setup. Iíve used it at home, in hotel rooms and even out camping. A sturdy tree branch provides a great place to use it. I tend to camp out in rather remote areas where I donít have to worry about nosy neighbors, but if you donít care what anyone thinks you could easily use this at even a crowded campground as long as there are trees around.

Quality

The system seems to be made of high-quality materials and is very sturdy. Some people I have talked to complained that the straps seem to fray easily and were concerned that they might have to be replaced; however, upon further discussion it seems it was used by children and/or teenagers who wanted to hang on to it like a monkey, and itís not meant to be used this way.

Conclusion

This is a great piece of equipment to add to any home gym, but even better for people who are constantly on the go and donít want to miss a workout. If you donít achieve great results, it may be that you arenít using proper technique. Iíd recommend studying the videos and/or considering a consultation with a personal trainer who can assist you. While some people did not find that the TRX Pro Pack + Door Anchor was worth the money, I found it to be a good value for my own needs.
