I love my TRX! @myphysiorachel has been teaching me so many new exercises lately that I'm getting such good use out of it. Mainly upper body focused as I'm still very limited with what I can do with me knee, so no suspended movements just yet, both feet still need to be firmly planted, which is fine as I'm still getting a really tough upper body workout. I can't wait til I'm at a stage that I can attend a full @trxtraining class at the @movementlab.nz - I've seen them happening and they look amazing, challenging and fun 👊 Bring on group fitness again! #hangingout (7 weeks post ACL Reconstruction on left knee) Tights are @lululemonausnz - Tank is @cottononbody 🤘
