San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 6, 2008
Fitness Anywhere, Inc., the company responsible for pioneering Suspension Training™ and establishing it as arguably the most practical and effective functional fitness method available today, has unveiled a line of versatile anchoring solutions for its popular line of TRX® Suspension Trainer® products.
The launch of the anchoring systems comes at a perfect time, as more athletic training facilities and mainstream health clubs are creating dedicated functional training spaces and want to implement personal and group fitness applications based on the TRX® Suspension Trainer®.
"While finding a place to hang up a single TRX is easy, we were getting a lot of requests to create a solution for training facilities who want to use the TRX for both small and large group fitness applications," said Randy Hetrick, Founder and President of Fitness Anywhere, Inc. "With our new commercial anchoring solutions, trainers and clubs can now maximize the potential of Suspension Training."
Underscoring the growth of Suspension Training™ as a highly-effective group training alternative is TRX® BodyWeb, the latest group training attraction offered by Crunch to its members. BodyWeb was developed through a collaboration between Fitness Anywhere® and the exercise innovators at Crunch and has been receiving rave reviews from Crunch members.
"Crunch is known for its innovative and unique programming and the BodyWeb class with TRX is no exception," said Donna Cyrus, Senior Vice President of Programming for Crunch. "We see Suspension Training as one of the biggest trends in fitness right now as members are looking for new ways to challenge themselves during their workouts. With Fitness Anywhere's anchoring options, we're able to roll-out the successful BodyWeb class to gyms in all of our markets."
Following is a breakdown of these anchoring solutions now available and on display at the upcoming IHRSA show in San Diego:

About the TRX® Suspension Trainer®
The TRX® is an adjustable training harness whose patented design is constructed of soft industrial strength nylon webbing that is non-elastic. Users leverage gravity and their own bodyweight to create the desired amount of resistance in any exercise. As users improve their strength-to-weight ratio they can choose from hundreds of all-body exercises and simply adjust their body position to make each movement more challenging.
