Seattle, Washington – The West Seattle YMCA today announced that as part of its expansion and renovation project, it is opening a new fitness studio housing Queenax, an innovative new training system.

Queenax is multi-purpose training equipment that centers on functional fitness, using exercises that mimic daily life activities to improve cardiovascular endurance and gain strength, flexibility and conditioning.

With a range of equipment all on one frame, workouts can include anything from TRX suspension training to a punching bag, battle rope drills and dip bars. Queenax can also be used for stretching and flexibility by attaching bars and straps at different heights. The options are endless and easily scaled to support every fitness level.

“I am excited about the uniqueness of the Queenax equipment,” says Lindsay Exley, Health & Wellness Director at the Y. “I like to think of Queenax as an adult jungle gym – a way to make fitness fun and exciting! Whether new to exercise, or wanting to add variety to a routine, our Queenax will offer something for just about anyone.”

The Queenax Fitness Studio will open on Monday, November 14 with a three-week series of demo classes. The demo classes are free to both Members and Community Participants, with advance registration required. Users can choose to participate in a TRX demo, Pilates demo or Circuit Training demo or all three. A full schedule of group exercise classes and drop-in times starts in early December.

The West Seattle YMCA is in the final months of an $8 million expansion and renovation project that began earlier this year. The new Kids Zone with dedicated, age-appropriate child care spaces opened in mid-September. A 5,900 square foot fitness center, Cycling Studio, Family Changing Room and Community Meeting Room with Healthy Eating Kitchen will open in late 2016.

Throughout the project, the latest updates, images, construction progress and schedule changes can be found at on OurNewY.org.
