TRX Bands at AthletiCo
By: Vince Di Renzo (SLU MAT Class of 2013)
At AthletiCo, the TRX bands are used primarily by clientele seeking personal training. However, I have seen many patients in physical therapy that have utilized the TRX bands towards the end of their rehab process. Having such a versatile piece of equipment around has helped many of the clients and patients at AthletiCo achieve their goals in a timely and efficient manner. Since one of our goals as a health care professional is to improve patient outcomes, TRX seems like a sound investment.

Students in the Saint Louis University Athletic Training Education Program have a required internship in the summer between their two professional years in the program. This blog post details a student's reflection on their internship experience.
