Few studies have evaluated the effectiveness of TRX training when compared to traditional resistance training (RT). Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine responses to TRX and RT on measures of strength, core endurance, flexibility, balance, and body composition. Fifty-four younger (aged 19-25) adults and middle-aged (aged 44-64) adults were randomised into a TRX (younger n=15; older n=8) or RT (younger n=14; middle-aged n= 7) program within their respective age group. A control group was selected from additional participants (n=10) in the younger group. Prior to and after completing the 7-week training program, the participants were evaluated for: height, weight, 5RM bench press for upper body (UB) strength, 5RM back squat for lower body (LB) strength, sit-and-reach test, abdominal skinfold (aSKF), waist girth, abdominal flexor test, back extensor test, side bridge left (SBL) and right (SBR) test, and Biodex fall risk balance test.
