And secondly, she had discovered a practical solution to a growing space problem in the School’s weight room. Garcia believed TRX training would offer a cutting-edge approach to train Punahou’s athletes for competition, and the compact nature of the TRX Suspension Trainers would ease the space problem in the School’s weight room, which Garcia says “was way beyond capacity.”
