Will suspension training make me leaner and stronger?

Of course it can.  The nice thing about a suspension trainer is you can change the difficulty based on your position.  So since you are using your own body weight to workout you can lean out and get stronger.  The other nice thing about a suspension trainer is you can workout your whole body without needing a lot of space.  A suspension trainer is a great tool for the home or actually anywhere you want to go.

Yes. Suspension training may make you stronger and leaner. Because suspension training uses your body's own weight to provide stimulus and overload to the muscles, your body should respond by getting stronger. As with most forms of resistance training, suspension training can help to elevate your body's metabolism leading to more calories being burned throughout the day. Therefore, in conjunction with a nutrition plan appropriate for body fat reduction, suspension training should help you get leaner.
