I'm not trying to pick on any specific product. I'm giving my best over-all objective opinion based on my expertise (I am a personal trainer at an exclusive high level gym). To be fair to all manufacturers, I still use ALL three of the products. My intention with this review is to educate consumers so you can make an objective decision.
I'll just limit my review to the cons because I don't want to continue the redundancy of talking about what these products can do.
First: Hygiene! the TRX falls short especially if you are sharing the product with others. The Jungle Gym handles and foot cradles are made of TPE (thermoplastic elastomer, which is a sturdy plastic with a rubber-like feel), and the XFit rings are olympic styled rings (lowest level is a very sturdy, almost invincible, hard plastic). Which both are easy to clean. The TRX, on the other hand, has a foam-like material over the handles, and the foot cradles over the nylon webbing. Which you can't clean unless you want to speed up the deterioration process. So, little microbes can fester on the handles and foot cradles. So if you share it with others, have an anti-bacterial gel nearby.
Next: Durability! I've had the TRX the longest, So it's been worked over!!! the main components of the straps are still well in tact. But!!! the foam on the handles have worn down, and are splitting. I've called FitnessAnywhere to find a solution, and they mailed me (for free), TAPE!!! Yes, TAPE!!! does it work? Yes. for how long? I don't know. Definitely not a long term solution though. There only other offer was another older model force kit for a discounted price (ten dollars less than the newest model). The Rings are solid and I know they will maintain its over-all integrity for many years to come. For the Jungle Gym, I'm familiar with many gym products and seeing the design and quality of the materials, there is premium quality, long lasting materials. You can tell it's the best made even if you compare all the products side by side if they were all new.
NEXT: Comfort. TRX, even with the foam handles, are last place. why??? the adjustable METAL buckle is designed to sit at a right angle to the handles. which means LOTS of snagging when doing pushing exercises. When I had the TRX the first two years, I would constantly have scratch marks on my arms, shoulders, and neck because of the metal buckle snagging me during use. Actually, an under armour long sleeve shirt (or similar) will go a long way. With the rings, the metal buckle can be adjusted to be away from your range of movement. The Jungle Gym, The adjustable buckle contraptions are modeled like the TRX except that it is made of a very durable hard plastic, contoured and rounded so there are no uncomfortable edges, and they lay flush (not at a right angle) to the handles. So... NO SNAGGING!!!
NEXT: Variations! you can do ALOT with any of the suspension trainers. But the TRX has the most limitations solely on the fact that both straps come to one point. So there is VERY LIMITED abduction exercises. and if you do try abduction... be ready for snagging. Not an issue with the other products. You'll be surprised how much MORE VARiATION there is simply by having each handle individually anchored, and able to control how wide each anchor point is. The Xfit rings don't have designed foot cradles, but if you are at an intermediate fitness level, you can stand your feet on the rings, and do all the foot cradle exercises comfortably. The jungle gym's foot cradles are by far the easiest to get in and out of, and the most comfortable.
LASTLY: Portability! Finally, the TRX wins in this category. One, it comes with a mesh drawstring bag. If you want one so badly, spend five dollars and get one for the other products. Also, the TRX packs the smallest. Actually, I have the first model Force kit, and it packs about a third of the size of all the current TRX models and is slightly lighter. I actually HATE that the newer TRX models are bulkier than they used to be. All the models have the bulkier (less expensive), nylon webbing. Don't be fooled if someone will try to lie to you and say it's better quality. it's not. I actually have the older, BETTER product. They're saving money!!! Even though they other products (XFit Rings, and Jungle Gym XT) don't pack as small, they are still VERY PORTABLE.
Because I have all the products, I have the advantage of doing total body suspension exercises. I can mix either of the products to achieve that. For my personal use, I'd use the Jungle Gym XT for my feet, and the rings for my hands (which coincidently, is the best buy), or you can get two Jungle Gyms, or Two TRX's. I'd recommend to getting two jungle gyms though.
This review is meant to educate consumers so you're not dazzled by the marketing, and you can buy confidently because you have as much objective information.
All the best on your fitness journey!!!
What's important is that TRX and Jungle Gym XT both suck if you don't know how to use them. Getting instruction on using them or watching videos online will help. Or go to a gym that uses suspension trainers. There's lots of different exercises, but getting that knowledge is key. Also these products should complement and not replace other exercises. Keep running, jump-roping, biking, walking, swimming, dancing, etc!
EDIT: I updated the video and changed the part where I thought I needed shoes for a certain position. All was needed was to flip the foot cradle around. So yeah, never had to use shoes with the Jungle Gym XT.
And then one of the foot straps broke.
One strap, both sides of the handle at the same time, where it attaches to the hand grip - plastic on the body a little cracked. Fortunately the other side didn't break.
This was the same day that I received this from Amazon.
When I went to Amazon returns, I had to think long and hard whether to request a refund or replacement as I really like the design.
So the reasoning for the stars for this product - design of use is wonderful, and in the opinion of the trainer in the room. That would have given it 5 stars.
Because it broke on first use, and my worry - what if another part of it breaks? This is for my health, an exercise device should not hurt me unless I abuse it. The part that did break is encased in plastic and looks like there is a fabric strap inside - looks like it sheared off - why did it shear so easily? I would have exchanged the device but also I was worried - the lower straps are connected by what looks like a plastic coupling to the upper ones - what if that breaks too, there is no secondary reinforcement there.
So maybe I just got a lemon, but as you can see, my confidence in this device has been shaken and I will not consider it again until the next version.
I've had the Jungle Gym for probably 18 months now, and I use them about 3-4 times a week. I used to go to the gym 5-6 times per week, and now the only time you'll catch me in there is leg day. For everything else, these straps in combination with a pull-up bar provide me with everything I need for a killer workout.
My friends always ask me what I do to get my body to look so perfectly sculpted, and this is my go to answer. I work hard and eat pretty healthy, but the type of additional stability that these force you to develop can't be achieved in the gym. I workout with bodyweight only (occasionally I'll throw a 20 or 60 pound vest on, but it's rare), and my friends just can't keep up when we workout together. I'm stronger than ever before, and the versatility of these straps allows me to hit pretty much every muscle group.
I do use a kettlebell for shoulder because these don't offer the best options, and I go to the gym to push around a lot of weight for legs, but aside from that, these straps cover everything I need...and I'm very picky about my workouts.
