Flagship Suspension Trainer™ now features Microban® Antimicrobial Technology

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (September 22, 2016) – TRX, the industry leader in functional training and Suspension Training® bodyweight exercise has partnered with Microban International to further differentiate the industry-changing TRX® Suspension Trainer™. The handles of the PRO + Commercial Suspension Trainers now feature Microban antimicrobial technology for an added level of protection against the growth of bacteria on the handles.

The new Microban-treated TRX Commercial Suspension Trainer provides health clubs, gyms and yoga studios with a product that remains cleaner in between product cleanings. The technology is applied to the handles of the TRX Suspension Trainer during the manufacturing process to deliver proactive protection that will not wash off or wear away.

“Our partnership with Microban was driven by our desire to make the Commercial Suspension Trainer even more effective for high-use gym environments,” said TRX President Paul Zadoff.  “The fact that the handles now offer added protection against the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria means less down time for our club partners and for those using the product – a tremendous benefit for clubs and members alike.”

“Microban specializes in partnering with companies to help keep their products cleaner and fresher for longer, providing protection that lives on for the life of the product,” said Kevin Parrish, Senior Vice President at Microban International.  “The use of Microban technology in the handles of the TRX Suspension Trainer is an ideal application that really provides a lasting benefit. We are excited about our partnership with TRX, an innovator in the industry, in this effort.”

The TRX Commercial Suspension Trainer with Microban antimicrobial product protection will be available online beginning September 22, 2016.  For more information on the new, state-of-the-art TRX Commercial Suspension Trainer, please visit To learn more about TRX, go to
