How to Make Your Own TRX Straps Under $30

Build Your Own TRX Straps for Under $30.

Why waste a ton of money when you can make these straps yourself – and for cheap!?

After I gave my home gym a new look, I wanted to add a few new training elements to it now that I have the space.  While I do my Body Beast workouts, occasionally, I like to throw in a surprise routine in the mix or at the end of the workout to keep my muscles guessing.  Today, I installed TRX straps.  Now I didnt buy a TRX training system, I simply went to a hardware store (Home Depot) and created my own.  This was extremely simple to do, installed in only minutes and saved me like $200! Now here is how you can do the same!

See how to make YOUR OWN TRX SYSTEM for under $30 below!


Here is what you will need to buy for your own TRX system:

  • (2) Ratchet Straps – mine are 8 feet long with a load of 300lbs. (Home Depot – $10)
  • (4) Clips to put on the ends – mine are 280lb load clips. (Home Depot – $5)
  • (2) Foam handles – to give you a sturdy, comfortable grip. (Walmart – $8)
  • *Optional clamp to secure it to your basement beam like I had to do. (Home Depot – $5)
  • All these supplies cost me less than $30 to complete! Took me 10 minutes to install!

Here are some simple steps to help you set up your TRX straps:

  1. Set up your ratchet straps even length.
  2. Place clips on all four ends of the straps.
  3. Secure foam handles on one end of each strap.
  4. Secure the other end, using the metal clip, to your basement beam.
  5. Give a few tugs to make sure the ratchets are locked.
  6. GIVE IT A GO! Pushups, flies, back rows, dips, etc!
