Pros. Because of its demands on the body core, Suspension Training essentially turns every movement into a total-body movement, thus reducing the chance of injury. Because of increased muscular demand, Suspension Training increases caloric demand making it an effective tool for weight-loss. A benefit of Suspension Training is that the mechanism is light, compact, portable, and may be hung from any support capable of safely supporting your body weight, including attaching it over a room door. Suspension Training is used by military personnel because of its portability, ease of use, and results.
Cons. Some sports scientists have expressed concern that weaker users may not have the core stability or joint integrity to use the system safely and effectively. A major problem with Suspension Training is the cost of the relatively simple suspension training device and their accompanying training programs and accessories. The TRX device costs over $200 and the InkaFlexx costs even more.
