Wellness Floor Upgrades: SYNRGY360

The Downtown Durham YMCA wellness floor will be closed for the entirety of Monday, December 30 so we can rework the layout and install our new SYNRGY360 equipment.

While the wellness floor is closed for the day, we will continue to utilize the remainder of the facility as usual (group exercise studio, cycle studio, gym, pool, etc.) and we encourage members to utilize the American Tobacco branch's wellness floor.

WHAT IS SYNRGY360?

Achieve More - SYNRGY360 training helps exercisers of any fitness level improve their cardiovascular endurance, strength, flexibility, speed, power, coordination, balance, agility and more.

My machine is no longer here, why would they remove it for this piece of equipment?

  • The selected machines that have been removed are picked specifically because we can instruct a similar exercise to work the same muscle groups in a more efficient manner.

What type of workouts are different using this machine, versus the cable machine?

  • This important piece of equipment involves training the body for the activities performed in a daily life. Helping the body work efficiently together for a longer period of time. A cable machine has some limitation on movements that promote functional training.
