In a previous article we spoke about how AWESOME the TRX straps are for exercising. Well, the TRX straps have been recalled. If you own a TRX suspension training system (professional (P1) or Tactical (T1), then there is a voluntary recall by the U.S. Consumer Product Commissions. The buckle that adjusts the length of the band is faultly and can snap under pressure.
There have been 570 reported cases of injury, 82 cases of exercisers falling, and 13 cases of shoulder, face, hip, and head injuries. EEK!! This can’t be good!
- The recall involves TRX “Professional” (P1) and “Tactical” (T1) which were manufactured between January 2006 and July 2007
- The parts that are being recalled are the yellow or khaki nylon anchor straps that have a carabiner at the top and a black nylon loop on the bottom. These straps also have TRX logo and the word “Professional” or “Tactical” on them. You should closely read the CPSC Press Release to find out all the details of the parts being recalled.
- If you do have one of these models, stop using it and contact Fitness Anywhere for a replacement: Fitness Anywhere, (888)-221-7417, email them at: CustomerCare@trxtraining.com, or visit their website at: www.trxtraining.com.
I’ll have to admit that I love the TRX suspension training system and the versatility that it adds to workouts both inside and outside the gym. If you have one, of these makes and models return it with the info above and get a new one so you can keep burning up those calories !
