Wilmington Family YMCA starts TRX training

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The Wilmington Family YMCA welcomes a new type of exercise class right in time for beach and bathing suit season.

They will soon be offering 'TRX' training-- standing for total resistance exercise. TRX is a workout system that leverages gravity and your own bodyweight to perform combinations of strength, aerobic, and stretching exercises. 

The exercise is not new to personal training studios, however the option is very new to gyms-- offering it in a large scale class setting.

TRX classes will begin the week of April 15 and will meet once a week for a total of seven weeks including an initial required orientation class. The classes are scheduled on Mondays, 5:30-6:30 p.m., Wednesdays 8:30-9:30 a.m. or Thursdays, 6:00-7:00 a.m.  The classes will be limited to 12 participants to allow for more individualized attention.

The TRX grand opening is on Saturday, April 6 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.  Y members and the community are invited to experience a TRX sample workout.  TRX class registration opens on Monday, April 8 at noon.

For more information contact the Wilmington Family YMCA at (910) 251-9622.
