Earlier this month, Mind Your Body Pilates studio on the Upper East Side in NYC, introduced the alternative fitness method of TRX Training to its clients as part of the studio's commitment to ongoing continuing education - TRX is soon to become an added method of training offered in an already extensive and varied line-up of group classes offered weekly at the studio.

finding one's center and balance is not easy but the use of straps to help people discover these elements to enhance Pilates or any other workout is being introduced here.

On December 14th, Mind Your Body Fitness introduced TRX Training, a whole-body movement-oriented suspension-strap workout presented in a special 3-hour workshop, led by Lindsay Lark, one of the well-versed and versatile fitness instructors who teaches under the gaze of movement expert and Master Pilates Teacher Gail Giovanniello - owner of Mind Your Body Fitness.

TRX is a total-body workout that enhances sports and everyday movements by taking the body through a full-range of motion in every plane of space. Although TRX is used both by serious sports professionals and in military training, the programs are customizable and can be adapted to any level. The suspension straps work with the body weight of the individual and thus the challenge-level is easily adjustable in any of the exercises. Because there is no table or equipment involved - the straps are attached to the wall - TRX demands more of the individual in the challenging elements of stability, balance and co-ordination. These demands strengthen the body with movements that are then directly transferable to what the physical system is called upon in aspects of lunging, jumping, bending, squatting and shifting weight from one leg to another. Thus TRX Training is quite different from other classes at Mind Your Body, can complement the stretching, strengthening and posture refining aspects of Pilates and serve as a more practical way to take movement principles into real-life conditions.

The range of Pilates classes available on the UES of NYC at Mind Your Body Fitness is already diverse and expansive, with over forty small group classes each with five or fewer participants, guaranteeing clients receive personal attention to specific needs. TRX is now joining the selection of muscle-toning, spine-lengthening, and posturally-supportive Pilates Reformer, Tower, Chair, Arc and Circle group classes, some of which are targeted for cardio or toning particular problem areas.
