Great article on how the TRX Suspension Trainer is an essential tool for elite athletes and how the top soccer players in the world are using it in the English Premier League:

A popular suspension training brand is TRX, which is used by Liverpool players such as Luis Suarez, Steven Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge, and Manchester City players Alvaro Negredo, Joe Hart and Sergio Aguero.
Recommended exercises for footballers include single-leg lunges, single-leg squat rows,oblique knee tucks, sprinter starts, mountain climbers, low rows, crossover balance lunges and hamstring curls.
