TRX builds quality and durability into product design. Like manufacturers of mountain climbing gear, TRX uses industrial-strength materials, employs redundant stitching, and built in safety features. This costs more, of course, but it's how TRX makes safe equipment that will withstand major loads. And on top of using top-notch design and materials, TRX has their products undergo testing for durability and safety.
When workout systems like the TRX Suspension Trainer's and Rip® Trainer redefine the fitness industry, knock-offs and imitators are bound to follow. Those poorly made imitations put people's safety at risk and deliver a sub-optimal workout experience.
