I love, which is why I got TRX certified and offer the Flock this option. Simple, effective, portable, butt-kicker uses your weight and resistance for a total body workout.
First developed in the field, NAVY SEAL Squadron Commander, Randy Hetrick began selling his original product, Travel X out of the truck of his car in San Francisco in 2004, the following year he began instructing trainers in the renamed TRX, and in 2007 the U.S. Marine Corps adopted a military training version of the program.
While it might seem intimidating and will definitely challenge, you don’t have to kill yourself and can gradually increase the difficulty as you acclimate. TRX is a full gym in a box with mobile app (iOS and Android), and the perfect, no-excuses workout solution for those who travel frequently.
I wear everywhere, and you can even coordinate with outfits because the bands come in multiple colors and can be replaced. Fitbit pairs with a free app (iOS and Android) and also links with MyFitnessPal to compare food intake to energy burn.
I like to track how active I’m being and monitor my heart rate, which also helps me manage my anxiety.
Generally I hesitate recommending headphones because everyone’s ears are different, both physically and judging sound quality. In other words, people are super picky about things they stick into their ears.
However, I think Anker is a great buy for the price, also offered in an over-the-ear style. Read carefully the reviews and questions before buying. Even among those complaining, Anker’s custom service is praised.
