Personal Training

Fed up with being overweight?  Feeling stressed and tired?  Want to increase your energy levels and feel stronger and healthier but lack motivation to do exercise?  If this sounds like you then why not call us and give our personal training service a go?

If you have never tried personal training before and just thought it was for the super fit then think again.  All kinds of people use personal training because it keeps them motivated, focused and most importantly gets results.

Flexion Fitness provide individually tailored personal one to one training sessions at our private, modern studio gym in Ash Vale.

At the initial free consultation we will discuss your goals, assess your current health and fitness levels and create a training schedule and nutritional advice which will allow you to get the most out of your workout and the results you want.

Personal training sessions will help you to become fitter, stronger and healthier and we will change up the programme on a regular basis to keep it focused, fun and exciting, using fitness and physical assessments to monitor progress.

If weight loss is your main goal then nutrition is vital, so we will help you to make healthier food choices to ensure changes are effective and sustainable.

Should you need a bit of added motivation why not sign up for our buddy up sessions and work out with a friend or partner.

Small Group Training

If you prefer to improve your fitness in a group environment but have been too self-conscious to join a gym then why not come along to one of our small, friendly classes?  Call us now to try a class for free.

Flexion Fitness offer small group training sessions for between four and six people at our studio gym in Ash Vale. We run one hour full body circuits and half hour High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) sessions, offering a more personalised approach than large classes. All sessions are block booked and often very busy so contact us to discuss availability or keep an eye on our Facebook page as spaces are advertised there. If you are available during the daytime and wish to set up a class with a group of friends then do contact us to discuss options. We also offer bespoke suspended movement and Kettlebell training sessions for two people.

Nordic Walking

Originally developed from the summer training regime of cross-country skiers Nordic Walking uses specially designed poles to enhance your natural walking experience, allowing the activity to become a full body exercise.

The addition of the poles engages the core and upper body and as you ‘push off’ they propel you forward faster, allowing your body to work harder but with less perceived effort.

It is ideal for people of all ages and fitness levels and anyone recovering from injury, as well as pre and post natal women.  You can make the work out as easy or as hard as you wish by increasing speed, tackling more challenging terrain or adding in additional exercises en route.

What are the benefits?

Apart from getting you out in the fresh air and enjoying the beautiful local countryside, Nordic Walking has a number of health and fitness benefits:

  • It engages 90% of all your muscles when done correctly
  • It can burn up to 46% more calories than ordinary walking
  • It is gentle on joints, helps improve posture and strengthens your back and abdominal muscles
  • If you take part in high impact sports it is ideal for active recovery
  • Helps reduce stress, tension in the neck and shoulders and improves mental health
  • It is fun and sociable

About us

About us

karenAt Flexion Fitness we believe fitness should be fun as well as keeping you healthy and feeling great. We offer a range of options for those with a gym phobia to individuals who work out on a regular basis, whether you are looking to lose weight, tone up, train for a sporting challenge event or just get fitter, healthier and stronger.

We all know that we should exercise and eat well to stay healthy, but we also have a multitude of excuses not to. But, when you look at the health risks of inactivity and a poor diet, the argument to get up, get active and take better care of yourself becomes more compelling.

INWA Nordic Walking Instructor

After having spent more than a decade in the corporate world, doing the daily commute into London and sitting at a desk for eight hours a day I know how difficult it is to find time to fit exercise in around a demanding job and home life. I love meeting new people and like to think I am friendly and approachable. Fitness has always been a passion of mine so I decided to ditch the commute and focus on something I love, encouraging others to live a healthier lifestyle, get in shape and feel great about themselves.

Testimonials
  • Karen is friendly, fun and very supportive and her classes are addictive, not just because you will see a difference in your fitness and self-confidence but because they are also fun. I attend a small group class and can honestly now say I work out with friends. I would recommend Karen to anyone and everyone.

    Selina Trafford
  • Karen led an amazing suspension fitness session in her gym, which was tailored for my level of fitness and knowledge, and I couldn't have been happier with the results, it was perfect for what I wanted and will allow me to train better and concentrate on the areas that I wanted. It was a brilliant lesson, I thoroughly recommend it for anyone who wants to have a full body workout without needing lots of different equipment.

    Toby Everitt
  • Karen is a great trainer and coach, both in 1-1 personal training and in group classes. She encourages and challenges in every session, in a supportive, fun way. Each workout builds on the last and stays interesting and motivating. I can’t quite believe how much I'm able to achieve now.

    Sarah De Capua
  • Karen is brilliant. This is the first exercise class I've ever done. The small group means you get personal attention. I've worked harder than I have ever managed at a gym. I'm enjoying exercise for the first time ever.

    Jessica Muirhead
  • This is the first time I've ever tried a personal trainer and I can honestly say I've enjoyed it more than any gym session! The one to one environment ensures that it's tailored to your personal goals.... and good to know that the exercises are working the right bits! Karen makes you feel at ease and I'd definitely recommend it for anyone who is shy to go to the gym but would still love to exercise.
