Trade show profile: TRX

There are many booths on the trade show floor at the IHRSA Annual International Convention & Trade Show - this year at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on March 19-22 - that it is impossible not to stop. Usually it is the throngs of attendees trying out a product.

You can put TRX as one of those booths. Whether it is TRX trainers occupying the suspension training straps or the trained staff instructing others, it is a busy area that really takes advantage of the traffic and interest at the IHRSA trade show.

This year is the seventh year for TRX at IHRSA, and with the debut of education and programming products it is sure to be crowded around booth 2224.
