GYMSTUFF G-STRAP Suspension Body Fitness Trainer
Hi there. Today I’ll be reviewing the G-STRAP Suspension Body Fitness Trainer by GYMSTUFF. I originally purchased this when looking for a way to get a great full-body workout from home. Since then, I have been more than happy with the product and can’t recommend it enough. See my thoughts below.
The quality: Between the TRX brand and this one, I honestly can’t tell much, if any, difference in terms of quality. These straps are tough, made of quality materials, and I can tell they’ll last a long time.
The price: Really what you’re buying when you purchase TRX straps is the name. This is why you can purchase something similar in quality, like the G-STRAP Suspension Body Fitness Trainer by GYMSTUFF, and still pay less than half the price. At the time of this review, you can get the G-STRAP Suspension Body Fitness Trainer for just under $50.
The portability: The one thing all suspension trainers have in common is that they can be used almost anywhere. I typically use my suspension trainer at home but I’ve also used it at a local park where I anchored it to a tree. Most suspension training sets, including this one, also come with a door attachment so you literally use the straps in almost any room of your house.
Include the fact that this thing is super light and comes with a carrying bag and you truly have one of the most portable full-body workout devices ever made.
Its effectiveness: One of the coolest things about suspension training is that makes almost every exercise a full-body exercise. This is because you must actively engage your core muscles to help keep you stable while using them. The inherent instability of the straps makes even the most simple exercises much more challenging.
Comes in different colors: This is something fairly unique with this brand. Besides the basic yellow, the G-STRAP Suspension Body Fitness Trainer also comes in blue, green, pink, and red.
There honestly isn’t much bad I can say about this product. But, if I have to pick something that I think could be a little better it would be:
The handles: Actually, it’s not so much the handles as it is the material covering the handles. It’s kind of like a memory foam material that I’m sure will break down over time. I’ve had my set now for just over three months and use it almost daily and haven’t seen any wear and tear yet. But I feel like this will be the first thing to show signs of usage.
Overall the G-STRAP Suspension Body Fitness Trainer is a great purchase that offers a fantastic workout and I would definitely purchase it again.
