Queenax Functional Training

Mission Valley Y
The Queenax functional training unit from Precor is like a giant jungle-gym for adults! Our setup will allow functional training — performing real-life activities in real-life positions. You can do exercises that mimic the same motions you would execute when climbing stairs or bending over in the garden. This unit will offer options for all fitness levels.


Mission Valley Y
No other YMCA has one of these. The Cybex SPARC (Strength Power Accelerated Resistance Cardio) trainer. The SPARC is an all-around, high-intensity training machine that is ideal for all levels of fitness.

Here's how it works:
  • Using a fan as its primary resistance, the SPARC has two modes of operation:
    Circuit Mode – Single, quick high power movement lasting typically less than one minute
    Interval Mode – Longer duration workout that has user-defined high intensity and rests
  • You can manually control the incline set at three positions
  • The machine is designed to reduce strain on knees
