Randy Hetrick is the inventor and founder of TRX which was created out of necessity in the Navy SEALs. With prior graduation from USC, Randy didn’t invent the TRX® Suspension Trainer with a business venture in mind, but rather a way to simulate climbing a caving ladder while using the body as a resisting force. He went back to school after 14 years as a SEAL, this time attending Stanford. TRX, as a product, started slow in sales before hitting a few tipping points and validating his product could be successful. His unique training device began to capture the attention of athletes, coaches, and trainers. As of 2001, TRX can now be found in gyms in more than 60 countries and is more than one million users strong.
