The Eastlake YMCA recently held a Grand Re-opening Celebration on Saturday, January 6 to showcase the upgrades completed after the facility was remodeled in December. The event featured wellness staff showcasing new equipment, special demos for new classes and vendors with giveaways.
The Y installed a Queenax, a free standing functional training unit that can accommodate suspended body weight training activities, into the layout of its new wellness floor. Additionally, the branch added state-of-the-art cardio equipment including ARC trainers, recumbent ellipticals and elevated row machines in addition to its existing cardio equipment.
“The member feedback so far has been really positive,” said Gaby Milan, Regional Membership Director at the YMCA. “The new facility layout and equipment are getting a lot of use.”
During the upgrade, the Y focused on reformatting the layout of the facility to include a dedicated stretching area and larger training zone. Also, the branch recently opened its YMCA Sports Complex to members Tuesday through Friday from 10:00 am to 1:30 pm for pickup basketball and other organized sports. The facility is located across the street from the Eastlake YMCA and features basketball and multi-purpose courts.

The Queenax is a free-standing system that can accommodate functional and suspended body weight training accessories. Queenax becomes a hub of group and personal training activities and offers the flexibility to be configured for circuit-style or small group class training.
Our new recumbent elliptical provides a more effective, total-body workout compared to other seated equipment. University research indicates that exercisers activate their glutes 3 times more and burn 23% more calories on this machine versus traditional equipment.
The arc trainer is designed to concentrate on the lower body and is often used because it gives added workout flexibility. It’s great for strength and power training.
The elevate rower simulates rowing motion using adjustable body weight resistance. The machine partially supports the user’s body weight so it’s possible to perform more precisely scaled movements.
