Thought CFers would be interested in these two pieces:

For traveling, the TRX System, basically a set of straps (think ring straps) with straight handles that is made to be supported in a door jamb. Not a necessity by any means, it looks like a fun piece to throw in a travel bag though:

For putting on the wall of one's gym:

Note--the seller also has some up for bidding, I got mine for $6.75 + 2.75 shipping. Look in their store for the same thing. I like it in my garage gym as it is one of those "Parking for ... only" signs and it makes me want to live up to the idea that I'm a gymnast in ways.

Now that's somebody with a sense for marketing. Two pieces of PVC and a couple web straps - $130, please. And all the accesories, too. Brilliant! It would be kinda handy, though.

That looks similiar to a product that we offer called the Jungle Gym. I do carry one, but it does tear one up. However, I still stand by the motto that something is better than nothing.

Karl,
What do you mean by 'it does tear one up'?

I'll stick with my Power Rings. I've lugged them to the other side of the world easily enough, and I've got the old style. Those TRX things look like 1/4 the product for 3X the price. Buckles rated at 400lbs!? Tyler's are rated at 4000!

The jungle gym looks like it'd be nice in a hotel room.

There has been some recent complaints about Power Rings bruising and/or scraping a person's arms. Honestly, the jungle gym can cut into you doing ring dips, etc.

However, I still would take a workout on that than to go without. And yes, it does work nicely in a hotel room.
