TRX good for weight loss?

Postby cupcakebabe » Tue Mar 18, 2014 10:31 am

Can anyone tell me if TRX is more for toning or is it good for weight loss too?

I found it more useful for toning than weight loss. But as I toned up esp around my middle I found I wasn't interesed in sweet foods as much and the quick results in toning made me want to eat less which led to weight loss.
I didn't find trx a particularly cardiovasular workout which works better for weight loss for me.

Not for weight loss, but is definitely the best exercise I've found for toning.
It's intense and tough but it doesn't get your heart racing like cardio exercise. Some classes incorporate circuits and kettle bells though which would help with weight loss

Hey Girls,

I found TRX great, Especially along with kettlebells and a bit of pilates!

Steer clear of the Spinning, the old Thighs gain a lot of muscle!!

Building muscle shouldn't be considered a bad thing O:|

well for me it was a problem, as the skinny jeans wouldn't go over my thighs, which was not the desired effect. Muscles and toning good, bulky is not for me. Each to their own. :compress

It's definitely more for toning but you can lose some weight from it. It's kinda of like weight training but just using your body weight. You'll lose some and get toned, but you still have to add other exercises in to continue to lose weight such as cardio.

Resistance/strength work is significantly better than cardio for fat loss. TRX is decent but not as efficient as weightlifting.

I find it very good for shaping your body, but not for weight loss. It's great exercise, very hard, but effective
