TRX Station Featured in Fitness Center/Group Exercise Studio Improvements

trxPadded flooring, improved ventilation, a pull-up bar, and the addition of a TRX training station are some of the recent upgrades in the fitness center and group studio at 301 W. Jefferson St.

The TRX (Total Body Resistance Exercise) station (pictured on right) is a suspension training system that uses your own body weight instead of relying on machines or dumbbells.  It helps develop strength, balance, flexibility, and core stability simultaneously.

If you would like to incorporate TRX into your workout, you will need to schedule a training session with Jan Hertzfeld, Fitness Coordinator. Contact Jan @ hertzfeldj@mail.maricopa.gov for an appointment.

Individual TRX workouts and training sessions can only be done when there is not a group exercise training scheduled. Refer to the group exercise schedule for the class schedule.
