Virginia Tech’s primary student recreation facility, McComas Hall, boasts a custom X3 500 Open Format Queenax unit. Primarily used for small group and personal training, the unit is open to the student body.
The X3 500 Open Format is a free-standing system with the flexibility to accommodate group training circuit-style classes, while preserving floor space. The system accommodates functional and suspended body weight training accessories, and offers equipment storage solutions. Demand for versatile training options has increased over the past few years and Queenax holds a global leadership position. Highly versatile, space-efficient and modular, Queenax allows operators to make the most of their valuable floor space. Group Queenax classes engage and excite participants as they encourage each other to push physical boundaries and have fun.
Virginia Tech recently hosted a Queenax Foundations Workshop led by Precor Master Trainer John Meeks. Attendees learned how to create logical, engaging. and safe movement progressions by integrating suspended bodyweight tools, bodyweight exercises, tubing, agility, and other resistance modalities. The training also covered group coaching dynamics and fundamentals to further hone staff confidence and familiarity with delivering high value coaching to multiple clients in a single session.
“The training gave our staff a chance to really dive into the endless potential that the Queenax offers,” said Krista Gwilliam, Assistant Director for Fitness Programs. “It was so beneficial to have a hands-on training where we not only got to learn how to program on it, but also had the opportunity to be participants during the workouts. Working with Daren and the Advantage Sport & Fitness team is always a pleasure. Daren and his team were right there with us every step of the way. From purchase, to install, to the training, Daren was always available and willing. We look forward to expanding our Queenax programming and to continue to work with Advantage Sport & Fitness in the future!”
