Functional training equipment supplier TRX has launched a new app and at-home training system, which clubs can sell onsite to members to help them continue their training at home.

The TRX Home2 System is an updated version of the Home Suspension Trainer. Designed to be used with the TRX app, the Home2 System provides an at-home training experience that users can personalise. The straps themselves have also been updated, and now boast a sleeker appearance and adjustable foot cradles.

The TRX app offers in-ear audio coaching that is designed to deliver a similar experience as working out with a personal trainer. Audio coaching is available for more than 80 different workouts.

Additionally the app features an extensive workout library covering a variety of disciplines, as well as a scheduling function that allows users to plan their workouts up to months in advance.

Randy Hetrick, founder and CEO of TRX, says: “By combining our industrial design, training and education expertise with our app technology to deliver audio coaching and biometric tracking, we’ve created a solution that allows users to achieve their goals more quickly and efficiently than ever.”

Neil Kelford introduces the Versaclimber contra-lateral climbing edition

Vertical climbing machine Versaclimber has undergone a makeover, moving from its original up-down climbing pattern of movement to a contra-lateral or crawling pattern.

Contra-lateral movement, also known as cross-crawl, occurs when the arm and leg approach each other on one side of the body, while the opposite arm and leg separate.

Released on 1 Jan 2018, the contra-lateral movement function now comes as standard across the full range of Versaclimbers. However, the traditional standard climbing pattern still remains available to purchase via special order.

The Versaclimber can also be used alongside an angle bracket, which attaches to a wall, squat or utility rack, allowing users to change their climb pattern from upright to horizontal.

Versaclimber managing director Neil Kelford says: “We are really excited to be offering this as an option as we think new users will find it even more intuitive and current users will discover they progress their fitness further, which they then find very rewarding.

“Cross crawl provides a new alternative to the standard climbing motion where the arms and legs move in unison on both sides of the body.”
