Oct. 3, 2012—Fitness Anywhere recalled its TRX suspension trainer device, because the strap’s length-adjustment buckles can break, which poses a fall hazard to consumers.
This recall involves Professional (P1) and Tactical (T1) TRX Suspension Trainer devices that were manufactured between January 2006 and July 2007. The anchor straps are yellow or khaki nylon that have a metal loop carabiner at the top end and a black nylon loop on the bottom end. A black-and-yellow or black-and-khaki nylon strap is threaded through the black nylon loop on the anchor strap to form a “Y.”
The recalled products were sold at health and fitness stores and at studios nationwide, and online at fitnessanywhere.com from January 2006 through December 2009. Fitness Anywhere received 570 reports of the strap length-adjustment buckles breaking and 82 reports of the user falling, which include 13 reports of head, face, shoulder and hip injuries. Consumers should stop using the recalled product and contact Fitness Anywhere to arrange to return the product for a replacement. Return authorization is required before you return the unit.
