DIY Addict, like to solve problems, do thing with my hands and find the cheap way around my needs.
Intro: Home Made TRX: bodyweight suspended training system
I recently happened to hear about the TRX Training system by Fitness Anywhere (http://www.trxtraining.com/  )and got curious about it.It took about 20 minutes to go crazy about it and wanting one, but the idea of spending between
200 and 250 U$D
 was not so appealing.But TRX, like all great ideas (like Chess rules or Unix design...) has the special feature of being an extremely simple concept with a simple design that give a lot offreedom an different possibilities of use.Being simple makes it easy to replicate.This is how I made my "almost professional looking" TRX system with
20 euros
 during three episodes of "the walking dead" ;-)
DISCLAIMER 1
TRX is a commercial product so all credits for the concept are due to Fitness Anywhere. This is a just replica, or knockoff if you prefer, of their product but cannot standthe comparison to the original one.
DISCLAIMER 2
Using your homemade TRX might result in damaging the equipment, you or your house, specially if you make it out of poor materials or don't do it properly. Don't blameme if you break something.
DISCLAMER 3
As for every fitness equipment consult your physical first and see if it fits for your general body conditions.With all that said... let's dive in.

Step 1: Materials
- About 8 meters of synthetic truck tie downs or strap (I got mine by the meter, truck tie downs could be cheaper the width of mine is 2.5cm wide, but could be more)When choosing the strap make sure it's not to silky and smooth : we need it to provide friction and not being slipperyA heavy duty carabiner8 iron rings "small" diameter4 iron ring "big" diameterAluminum pipe we (need about 15cm of that)PVC pipe (need about 15cm of that)some pins or binder clipsOptionalEpoxy glue
NOTES ON MATERIALS
As for the straps, rings, carabiner:get those materials wisely: make sure that each of them can carry twice the weight of your body or more. You'll be hanging from those and if they fail you mightfall and get hurt.A carabiner used for climbing is a good choice but might cost you 10 bucks-up.Whenever you cut the strap remember to burn the ends to prevent it from unravelingAs for the rings:the "small" rings must have an internal diameter that is larger than the width of the strap you will use so that you can loop the strap in them (see pictures)the "BIG" ring must have an internal diameter that allows the "small" ring to pass through it (more on this later)As for the pipes that will make the handle bars:you want a PVC pipe that allows the strap go pass through ityou want an aluminum pipe larger than the PVC one so that it can fit inside, turn around but not too loose. (more on this later)
Step 2: Tools
Sawing machine capable of Zig-Zag stitches. (if you work with metal you might need a welder, but if it's fabric we are talking about, than you need a sawingmachine)You might find pins or binder clips helpful in keeping the strap together while you saw
Step 3: Notes on Sawing
While sawing the strap remember always to use a WHIDE Zig-Zag stitch.When you are sawing ALONG the strap use a "longer" stitch that will allow you to see the actual zig-zag pattern.When sawing ACROSS the strap use a very short stitch step, so that every stitch is almost next to the previous one.You might find pins or binder clips helpful in keeping the strap together while you sawAlso you might use some epoxy between the parts you are sawing for extra security but that should not be necessary.
Step 4: The General Idea
In the drawing you can see the idea I have in mind.The red parts are the metal one and are the rings and the carabinerThe blue lines are where I'm going to sew and the green part is the handle.The handle parts will link to the long straps like the old book belts: passing the strap inside both rings and then coming back passing over one and under the other. It'ssafe, easy and allows fast regulation of the length. The long straps will connect and stay hooked to the suspension part (the one with the carabiner) to your tree, pole,suspension bar, door... what have you.Pretty simple, right?
