Cheap Fake TRX: How to spot a genuine TRX from a counterfeit

TRX Fake

TRX Suspension Trainer and Prices

The market has lately seen quite a lot of fake and non-standard products bearing TRX logo.

Such products are very good imitations and majority of them have been made in China. You can find it even in e-shops selling martial arts equipment.

Where to buy cheap TRX?

E-shops frequently advertise the fake products by using original TRX product pictures to attract customers.

Logically, such websites frequently promote their goods as “Cheap TRX” and they often fail to have “information About Us” section which only proves their untrustworthiness.

It is the lack of credible information about the seller and suspicious contact details which hint at unreliable company.

Although such businesses claim to be approved resellers, you can always find a list of authorized TRX dealers on the web pages run by Fitness Anywhere.

Beware: TRX counterfeits are harmful

The number of injury reports related to the use of counterfeits is really high. If the straps break during an intensive workout, the subsequent injury might be quite serious.

Why do people buy dangerous fake TRX copies?

The reason is certainly the TRX retail price which might seem too high. This makes some people think why they should get an original system if they can have an almost identical product for a third of the original price and no one can even tell the difference.

Well, people can tell the difference! In a better case, it is your body that gets to know the difference, and in the worse case, it is going to be your client’s body with a torn muscle or a broken nose.

YES, those are the most common injuries to occur while practicing on fake TRX systems.

If you ever start practicing on a device that has never been distributed by an official dealer, such product comes without any warranty and you cannot claim anything for the harm done from your insurance company if case may be.

The cheap and fake versions of TRX often see broken straps and carabiners or damaged handles. The reason for these incidents is poor quality materials that cannot carry the load capacity without breaking.

TRX prices

Prices of original TRX systems never fall below 199.95 USD anywhere around the world. There are exceptions like special marketing events, wholesale contracts, and special offers for sports clubs.

If you want to prevent injuries, invest in buying an ORIGINAL TRX®.
