The Loxley Suspension Trainer Review
Strength training is essential for any triathlete and it does more than just prevent injury. In an endurance event, power is crucial for performance and Suspension Training is one of the best ways to improve.
Using a Suspension Trainer is a perfect tool for strength training. Any movement performed on a Loxley Suspension Trainer requires you to stabilise your abs and use your own bodyweight as resistance.
This review is on behalf of Loxley Sports. A fresh new sports brand in the North East of England who provide great quality products at great prices.

First thing I noticed was the quality, it felt strong and safe which is important if you’re going to be hanging from it! It was extremely easy to set-up as a guide was provided. You also get a free meshed carry bag so you can conveniently take it wherever you go.
The trainer handles felt really good quality. They’re made of strong durable foam so they felt very comfortable. I’ve used other brands before and their handles were made of rubber. This seemed ok at first but after a while it becomes uncomfortable and if you have sweaty palms like me, your hands will feel like they’re going to slip. Not with the Loxley Suspension Trainer though, their handles felt great and really safe.
A door anchor is provided for indoor use and a strap extender for outdoor use. The change over is really easy to perform as you use a metal bracket. Again, some brands use plastic brackets which don’t feel as safe as the Loxley brand.
