i don't have a heart monitor so don't know how many calories burned during a typical 50 min TRX class...i had to estimate. does anyone else do TRX and how many calories do you burn?

Too many factors involved... intensity, exercises performed, your fitness level. Wish I could give you an answer, but you may just have to guess or use a HRM. wink

i did just estimate...class is 50 min so i figured i would burn about 200 with cardio aspect and about same with resistance aspect. i have been doing it for a while and do weight training 5 days a week with this class on saturdays. it really isn't that big of a deal since i don't eat back my calories anyway...i was just curious. thanks!

Through the implementation of consecutive strength movements without rest, TRX classes are generally classified as a high intensity workout. According to the Harvard Medical School a 30 minute resistance training session burns a range between 180 and 266 calories, depending on body weight.

Good job doing your research. Many folks here seem to forget that Google is a click away.

I did a 5-day/ week, 1 hour/day TRX boot camp for many months, and had a love-hate relationship with it. It's a killer workout regardless of your fitness level. I even bought my own set of straps (just have nowhere to hang them in my new house) lol

You may want to check out their TRX/ Kettlebell workout DVD.... it hurts sooooo goooood!!! lol

i totally get the whole "love/hate relationship". don't think i could do it 5 days a week! i don't really love classes, i like to write my own workouts during the week and do my own thing but i do look forward to this class on saturdays and i love having my kids do it with me so they can see that their old mom is tough! i would totally love kettlebells...we don't have them at our YMCA (maybe i will suggest) and i am a horrible "at home" exerciser. i find all kinds of other things i should be doing and get distracted. we do have a wrestling mat and a heavy bag in the garage but no TV/DVD player out there (that would be the perfect place for a TRX bar).

today was my first day to do the TRX with my trainer. it's very challenging and i couldn't do it for a prolonged time. i'm glad i read this thread because it makes me hopeful that i could be better at it. thanks guys!
