TRX Suspension Trainer Recall Issued Over Breaking Buckles, Falls
About 40,000 TRX Suspension Trainer fitness devices were recalled after reports of the buckles breaking, which could cause exercisers to fall suddenly, potentially suffering a head trauma or other injury.
The Fitness Anywhere TRX Suspension trainer recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on October 1, indicating that the “Professional” (P1 model) and “Tactical” (T1 model) TRX Suspension Trainer devices have generated 570 reports of buckles breaking.
The fitness devices have caused at least 82 users to fall, including 13 reports of head, face, shoulder, and hip injuries.

The device poses an unreasonable risk of falls because the design does not have a locking loop, where the anchor strap and the “Y” straps are joined to limit the slippage of the straps, according to the CPSC. This allows for the consumer to come loose during the use of the product.
The two models have badges on the straps with the TRX logo and the words “Professional” (for P1 devices) or “Tactical” (for T1 devices). The badges and logo are either surrounded by dots or have double lines through the logo name.
Recalled models that do not have a nylon locking loop were sold at health and fitness stores, studios nationwide and online at www.fitnessanywhere.com between January 2006 and December 2009 for about $150 to $200 dollars.
The Professional and Tactical models were imported from China by Fitness Anywhere LLC, of San Francisco, California.
The CPSC announced that consumers should stop using the product immediately and follow the return procedure set by Fitness Anywhere. Consumers should contact Fitness Anywhere to arrange a return for the recalled product where they will receive a replacement TRX Suspension Trainer device. For further questions, consumers can contact Fitness Anywhere by calling (888) 221-7417 or by emailing the company at firstname.lastname@example.org .

I just had the cam buckle explode while using my TRX professional (v1). I happened to be talking to someone from Sorinex about a gym build and he used to work for TRX. He told me about the recall. I’m trying to reach TRX. I’d just like a replacement.

I was doing a trx row and the carabeaner just snapped in half. I have a severe concussion and now cannot work. Not sure what to do. I cannot believe this happened.

I've had my TRX for a few years but it's only used for PT clients and times the gym is shut. Just demonstrated an exercise to a client and the buckle shattered putting me on my ass. No big deal, I didn't realise there was a recall on the model I had as I bought it here in Spain. I am happy to keep it and wondered if there is replacement buckles?

My TRX T1 Tactical broke 21 May, 2020. I foind out about the recall, and contacted TRX, but they have not bothered to answer any email and their social media manager just keeps saying to send another email. CS phone doesnt accept phone calls. Should I sue?

My TRX tactical has just broken at the buckle while I was using it causing me to fall onto my back, luckily avoiding a serious injury. Having just done some research and found this site I now see that there is a recall on this product, am I to mate to get anything done about this? Regards Gary.
