TRX Crosscore - Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What are TRX Suspension® and CrossCore® methods of Training?
    Suspension Training gives athletes and fitness pros a new and innovative program that will take you to the next level in fitness. The TRX or CrossCore training method added to your current Pilates workout will assist in building strength, endurance, balance, flexibility and core stability. Take your volleyball, surfing, golf, basketball, snowboard, running, or hockey skills to the next level !
  2. Who will benefit from Suspension Training?
    Everyone can benefit because at Hermosa Pilates, our trainer controls the resistance and level of difficulty based on your current level of athletic ability, endurance and strength. The TRX® Suspension Trainer™ and CrossCore® are critical methods for rehabilitation, intense athletic training, and everything in between. Suspension training allows for complete range of motion throughout a workout, which in turn creates a more functional, safer and successful method of training for our client.
  3. How is Suspension Training® different from other types of resistance training?
    Traditional weight training tends to work one muscle at a time which is contradictory to a normal coordinated muscle effort used in most activities in life. Focusing on only one muscle at a time can lead to overuse injuries and muscular imbalances, as well as potentially limit strength and movement gains. Both Pilates and TRX allow for the use of multiple planes of motion, working multiple muscles and joints throughout a workout. We believe that functional training is the smarter and more effective way to train.
  4. I've heard the TRX®, CrossCore® and Pilates are great for rehabilitation after an injury?
    Many physical therapists use both Pilates and the TRX to help their patients during the recovery process from injuries. Being able to adjust resistance with our studio equipment makes functional training successful at all levels of practice.
  5. How long are the workouts?
    Training is 55 minutes in length. Workouts begin on the Pilates reformer and then transitioned to your TRX®, CrossCore® training. Workouts are done as a Private session or in groups of 3 where you will move from the Pilates Reformer, TRX®, CrossCore® Medicine Ball and Bosu Ball. Costs are listed on the Hermosa Pilates "Pricing" page.
  6. How is the CrossCore® workout different from the TRX?



    At our studio, we integrate them both into all circuit training sessions.

    CrossCore's rotational pulley system has quickly earned the respect of elite athletes and fitness regimens globally. CrossCore® is a fitness industry first to evolve the 2-Dimensional TRX concept offered with a 3-Dimensional rotational pulley and ropes system. CrossCore's locking and unlocking system allows clients to exercise with or without rotation. It greatly increases versatility and is an industry game changer for performance and fitness training, as well as rehabilitative segments. Mad Dogg Athletics has now brought extensive experience in fitness education to CrossCore®. This innovative program allows clients to incorporate natural and rotational movement while performing bodyweight exercises. Rotation is a necessary component for truly effective suspended bodyweight training and of tri-planar movement. Rotation makes it possible to mimic the moves involved in sports or everyday life movement for maximum results.
