If you follow me on instagram and twitter, you would have seen my latest fitness obsession – TRX Training. I started doing a few classes a couple of months ago, fell in love with it and now do it twice a week. My body has never felt as stronger and highly recommend it to anyone that wants to add strength to their workout. Make sure to follow my fitness journey and workouts on @myfashdiary

Recommended Instructors: Afaf, the queen of TRX teaches one on one or in small groups – she’s amazing, tough and hilarious. You’re going to leave with one of the best workouts and really spices it up with every session.
-Straight to the point and get a full body workout.
-There aren’t many reps, so you never ever get bored.
-Afef, the instructor mixes up the warm ups, so you can run on a treadmill one day, and do a 10 minute session of kickboxing the next.
-I was doing one on one sessions, so she really focuses on you, your workout and your body.
-Every class/session ends with assisted stretching and if you’re lucky, a sports massage using the roller!
-TRX is a workout good for the ligaments, so no extra pressure on the ankles or knees.
-The classes are constantly challenging, with different workouts every class – and sometimes, ankle weights!
