I got creative - with the help of my wonderful partner John - who rigged this homemade TRX for me. Like many of you, I also don't have any access to equipment right now.

He mounted hooks on the ceiling and used rope. Then, I attached an ELEMENTS Loop and Roll to it. It might not be pretty, but it works like a charm.
I like the ELEMENTS straps. First, they're really nice quality, very well made, and super soft. I like the cheerful, fresh, pink color. But the best part is that they have a loop and the handle integrated into each other. On the Reformer, if you want to switch from a loop to a handle, it takes a bit of time and can disrupt the flow of the session.
