Name: Colin Robinson
Occupation: Managing Director
Reaching my mid 50’s I realised I needed to become more active as my once a week round of golf seemed to becoming more of a physical challenge than it ever used to be.
My work involves either sat behind a desk, behind the wheel of a car on an aeroplane. I considered a number of gyms but after a fitness consultation and trial at Speedflex I was hooked.
Speedflex is a unique and fun way to get fit. The Trainers and all the staff take time to get to know you personally and the sessions allow you to work to your own limits whilst being part of a group. The flexibility of the rolling session makes it easier to include exercise into my work and home routine and the results after my first 6 months have been phenomenal.
I have more energy, a renewed enthusiasm for work and as an added bonus, I’ve lost almost 2 stone in weight. Speedflex is now an integral but more importantly, a very enjoyable part of my weekly routine.

Before joining Speedflex, I had been a member of another gym for over 10 years. After my trial I ended my gym membership and have been taking 4-5 Speedflex sessions per week ever since.
Punctuality is key for me as I generally attend before work. The sessions always start and end on time meaning I know exactly what time I’ll be in the office.
I’m often surprised with the inventive exercises devised by the Trainers which make the sessions varied and fun. Not everyone needs to work to the same level. I have always been fairly active however my fitness has certainly improved since joining Speedflex and I look forward to each session.

My initial goal was to do something to make myself feel better in general, as I could tell that I was feeling sluggish and generally not happy with my appearance – my light-bulb moment was when one morning, I found it a struggle to put my socks on! At that point, I thought something had to be done!
I’ve always participated in sports of some kind – boxing, football, tennis – but nothing has given me this level of fitness or has changed my body shape as dramatically.
My body fat was 20.4kgs is now 6.1kgs and I’ve lost around 16kgs in weight. Most importantly, my visceral fat is down from 96.6cm2 to only 37.1cm2 – this should add years to my life.
The support of the Speedflex Trainers is excellent, they really motivate you to push yourself to your limits. They make the sessions fun and enjoyable, rather than filling you with dread – I often find myself staying longer than I intended to.

Occupation: Senior Fraud Investigator and Head of Risk
We both absolutely love going to Speedflex, it’s genuinely changed our lives. We’re fitter, happier & healthier.
Being able to train together in the same sessions doing the same things even though Andy will use heavier auxiliaries is really good and it’s brought us closer together.
That’s why Speedflex is so good in that you can have women and men of different levels all in one session and all getting a good work out as it’s up to you what you get out of it.

Prior to starting Speedflex I had undergone surgery and had total knee replacements in both knees.
Speedflex has helped me to strengthen my muscles in my legs and helped me to lighten and tone my whole body, my fitness levels have improved and I can fit into my clothes better.
The Trainers are excellent and can give alternative exercises so that I don’t damage my knees.

For me personally, moving on from 2 years of illness, a final diagnosis of MS and through the doors of Speedflex was a massive self-set challenge.
Since October 2014, thanks to the superb staff at Speedflex and the multitude of benefits I have gained from the training regime, my life has been transformed beyond recognition.
I am currently attempting to train 5 times per week, driven by the knowledge that I will experience a substantial uplift in both health and spirit.

Occupation: Full time wife and mother
I have been running for about 10 years and people have always mentioned that I should try Speedflex to compliment it but I was always sceptical.
When my friend hurt her foot in February we decided to incorporate something else. I now do Speedflex at least 5 times a week, alongside my running, which will always be priority.
Speedflex has definitely helped my stamina and my legs and core feel much stronger. I always thought I looked reasonably toned around my stomach area but now I can see a great improvement. I love Speedflex because no two sessions are the same and afterwards there are no aches and pains.

Occupation: Consultant / Accountant
Generally throughout my life I have considered myself reasonably fit, but on reaching my 50’s I suffered a knee replacement and was diagnosed with high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes. I needed to re-energise myself but considered gyms and swimming pools boring that offered nothing new. I discovered Speedflex and 2 and a half years later, I am still going every day.
On joining my weight was 86kg and I am now down to 76 kg (21% body fat down to 13%). My waist size is down 4 inches and I feel fitter than ever.
Speedflex is so unique and exciting. My renewed enthusiasm and fitness was noticed by close family and they were keen to try this unique fitness approach too. 4 of my family have now joined and regularly come to sessions too.
