Mathematicians concur that bicep curls and pull-ups turn linear arm muscles into parabolas better than the quadratic formula. Become a geometric masterpiece with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get four TRX suspension training classes at Body F/X in East Islip (a $100 value).
Body F/X is a 3,500-square-foot personal-training studio that helps accelerate injury recovery, hone sport-specific skills, and advance herculean pursuits. The gym’s eight TRX stations, elegantly simple creatures made of easily handled suspension straps, plow fields of brawn by harnessing the power, heft, and heavily feathered wingspan of their human operators. Classes are offered seven days a week, incorporating strength, flexibility, balance, and mobility exercises that rely on body weight for resistance, with user angle and position adjustments delivering all levels of burn-feelers their desired burn-feeling settings. Body F/X’s certified trainers conduct sessions with an intimate class size of eight people, though the facility can accommodate up to 16, to ensure personalized attention and proper form.
