Queenax Functional Training

 (Beginner- Intermediate)

Our core is at the center of everything we do. It allows us to sit, stand, reach, and bend. Functional training is replicating actual physical activities we experience in our everyday living. When we train functionally, we train to strengthen and improve balance and coordination in order to become more independent individuals. Together — Core and Functional Training blend together to create Queenax Functional Fitness where strengthening the core and the major muscles groups are the primary focus. In this class, you’ll be find yourself strengthening the core in every exercise you do whether you’re working your legs, back, or focusing solely on the core. This class is all about the strength and toning to improve your overall ability to function.

Fitness is a way of life.

Living a healthy lifestyle is more than simply being physically active. To maintain a healthy outlook on life, one must maintain a balanced spirit, mind and body.

The Y is a place that allows you to work toward that balance by offering skills and hobbies which allow you to make connections with friends by utilizing different aspects of learning programs. The Y not only focuses on ones’ self, but incorporates activities which can be done by the entire family.

Keep in mind sports, fun and exploring new interests are not just for the young. Along with improving health, whenever teamwork is involved, the benefit of fostering connections with others becomes an added bonus.
