Green Hills Family YMCA Converts Racquetball Courts to Functional Fitness Areas

The Green Hills Family YMCA, located in Nashville, Tennessee, has converted two areas previously used for racquetball in their 100K+ sf facility. The areas are dedicated functional fitness rooms that will allow members to add versatility to their workouts by incorporating bodyweight exercises.

The MoveStrong is a great addition to the Y and helps them stay current with fitness as it evolves. Functional fitness is an important part of wellness and we are glad the Y recognizes this.

DaneFit outfitted one complete wall of the two 40ft long rooms with the MoveStrong Wall FTS system. The system was custom built for the YMCA based on their member needs. The wall features multiple grip pull up bars, Olympic rings, hooks for an Olympic bar and Olympic plate storage, GRT trainers, rope anchors and a variety of other anchor points for bands and other training accessories.  The area can accommodate multiple users at once, and the Green Hills YMCA offers group fitness classes incorporating the MoveStrong FTS. 

The second room is outfitted with a combination of the double-wall FTS and MoveStrong's Pull-Up Bracket System with MoveStrong's signature Sliding Pull-Up™. 

In addition to adding the new equipment, the YMCA also had MoveStrong certify over 20 of its personal training staff in MoveStrong's Functional Fitness certification, earning them continuing education credits recognized by NSCA (National Strength and Conditioning Association).
