The TRX Suspension System is the only exercise from my six months of physical therapy after knee surgery that I not only enjoyed, but continued to do after I completed PT. It's also the only piece of exercise equipment I've ever asked for as a gift (and it'll certainly remain that way).
While it is pricey, it's an amazing alternative to weight lifting or paying for a gym membership. As someone who has struggled to stay on top of working out, the TRX helps me stay accountable for my exercises because it's all about using your own body as the weight. There's no other equipment to buy, and there's not a huge learning curve to figuring it out.
Right now, Amazon has it on sale for around $120, which is basically the same price as one month of gym membership if you're in a major city. Plus, this deal includes eight video workouts and an eight-week workout program. If you tend to want to avoid crowds, but want a full-body workout, the TRX system pays for itself in less than a month.
