From Our Editors
NSA TrainStation director Niki Aron has been a personal trainer for more than a decade, during which she has helped people reach their fitness goals, all while embracing the transformative powers of TRX suspension training in a converted airplane hangar. Designed by an active Navy SEAL looking for a way to work out without regular gym equipment, TRX employs straps that help exercisers use their bodies for resistance. With straps looped around hands, ankles, or overenthusiastic ponytails, participants lean back, hang upside-down, and twist. TRX workouts are designed to simultaneously improve flexibility, balance, and core strength.
TRX straps wind around the i-beams of the National Squash Academy, the facility in which Niki hosts classes. Through lessons, camps, and outreach programs, the Academy seeks to fill its ten courts with players of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels. Because of the origins of the facility, the workout space leaves ample room around equipment and visitors, discouraging overcrowding. The facility was named Best Specialty Fitness Club in Toronto by BlogTO in 2013.
