    I attend the Langham Creek YMCA, do you have TRX suspension classes at that location? If so, when?

    • Trazanna says:

      The Langham Creek Y does not currently offer TRX, but they are planning to start offering classes this fall. Many of our other locations do offer TRX now if you have a citywide membership. Those locations include: McWilliams at Cypress Creek, Tellepsen, Trotter and South Montgomery County.
