Warning: TRX Broke During Use


#1


My TRX broke during training today friend fell and hit his head on the ground he was doing T-rows on it...

Yes it's an original TRX registered and all that

Lucky we did not work out in the usual place(tree next to the side-walk so out feet would not slip) it was sun and we decided to go to a tree in the sun and it was in the middle of the field so he fell on grass...

And I was using this a lot with my clients thank god this did not happen with a client and on the concrete that would have been a cracked skull right there

Why would you ever be over concrete?

Wow.

I would have expected they’d use climbing-grade equipmpent… which I’ve never seen fail like that.

The stitching and webbing all looks fine and more than adequate.

Have you contacted TRX?


#7

I’ve drug around 500+lbs with no problem before…interesting.

Looks like it, or even worse zinc diecast.

Want something cheaper and more reliable? Chains. Yes, the kind that holds swing sets. They have been around for ages. Cut your desired length at Home Depot. Another option? Towing straps.
