Flex’s Second Birthday! Free Classes & Fundraiser

By Event

 

This Saturday, June 2nd, is our 2nd birthday and we have a ton planned to celebrate. This year, we’re supporting Together We Rise– a foundation that provides supplies to local children/teens in foster care to help them transition with love and dignity. We’re purchasing Teen Duffels for older children who are often forgotten about during these drives. No one should have to carry their belongings in a trash bag. For $15, you can gift a duffel bag for a teen going through more than their fair share. Please click to donate! At our birthday barrety your donation will be your ticket to class that day! We are finally halfway to our goal of $500 (or 33 bags to give), so please donate today!

Please sign up for your free class ASAP because they’re filling up! We’ll also have a watermelon pizza bar(re), cupcakes (because birthday), juices, and bubbly in the studio plus specials and first dibs at our amazing summer challenge (psst. it’s our biggest one yet). To top it off, our new \ retail is in, too! We will have donation bins for supplies to stuff our duffles for our local foster teens. Please bring an item to donate as your ticket in to class!

Their wishlist includes handwritten letters, (we’ll have a station at the party to write encouragement) journals, blankets, toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, deodorant, notebooks, hats, books, flashlights, refillable water bottles. We made an amazon wish list HERE with great value items that we think they’d love. Please bring new items because many foster children only receive hand me downs. Donations will be accepted all week!
The schedule is:

  • 9:00  Express Barre w/Stef
  • 10:00 Bootcamp with Karley
  • 10:15 Piloxing with Deborah
  • 11:00 Flex and Flow with Karley

Saturday parking can be tough, so please plan to get there a bit early. Remember the garage is almost always empty and the orthodox church on Rincon lets us use their parking lot for special fundraisers!

Kindness in the Studio- More than a tag line

Note from Niki

I saw a quote recently that said, “Remember what it felt like to be excluded so that you can help build a community where everyone is included” and it really resonated with me. You may have heard me talk about it before, but Flex was built around community on purpose. When I first moved here, I had zero friends, my S/O worked beyond full time and my family was in another time zone, so I would go to all these different fitness studios just to get a little bit of human interaction in my day. I vividly remember sitting in a big, fancy yoga studio and feeling like a total loser- at this point, I didn’t even know what Lululemon was, let alone where to get it. I bought my pink mat at Walmart that morning because I realized I didn’t even have one in CA. The teacher never even acknowledged my existence! I’m this lonely little Alaskan girl sitting in the veryyyy back corner watching all these gorgeous regulars stretch and warm up and I just felt so…out of place.

I knew that when I started my studio that I didn’t want that to live at Flex. As the instructor, I always look for the person in the corner because I know what that feels like. However, I’m only one small part of the equation. You, our beloved flexfam, are the heart of Flex. When you take a second to welcome someone new, you bridge the gap to make them feel like part of the fam and that can totally change someone’s day.

We have a kindness challenge starting soon and I hope you’ll be apart of it. Maybe we’ll start a flexfam revolution and it will spill out of the doors…Go make someone’s day and stay tuned for more info!

Be Limitless,

Niki Riga, Founder


 

What Class to Choose?

By Blog
We know… staring down our insanely full class schedule might leave you wondering what to tackle first (we have trouble deciding which classes to take ourselves… we love them all!), so we thought we’d offer a few suggestions to make it smooth sailing.

If you’ve never done barre, yoga, boot camp or TRX before, here are a couple of classes to consider starting with:

Barre: If you see Barre Basics on our schedule- start there! We offer Basics at specific times throughout the year and it is a perfect spot to learn (you guessed it) the basics! Another great option is Iso Barre. This class is the perfect place to learn the modality with lots of attention from our teachers so you can flex those limits in perfect form. Don’t be surprised if your legs find a bit a of a shake- it means you’re working and your teacher will love you for it!
Intro to TRX: This is 
your “start here!” class for any of our TRfleX or TRYoga classes. In this quick 15-minute free class, you’ll learn how to quickly adjust your suspension straps, how to modify and amplify, and how toget into the core exercises that you’ll see in class. TRfleX immediately follows Intro on Sundays, so you’re more than welcome to sign up for both to test out your newfound skills.

Yoga: New to Downward Dog? Slide into a Gentle Flow and Let Go class where you’ll spend longer in the poses and experience
 some nice stills while you relax your mind. Silicon Valley is stressful- add some Zen to your evening and feel the effects all week. 

If you’re an ‘ol pro and want to maintain your pace or step it up to the next level, here are a few classes we think you’ll love:

Barre Burn: We’ve added some cardio bursts to our barre so you’ll tone and sweat in this full range of motion class. Expect bigger movements than ISO barre and a twist on the traditional barre class that you may be used to. Jumping is always optional in class, but we think the flying is part of the fun!

Limitless Yoga Sculpt: Like boot camp? Love yoga? This is your class. Carry your free weights through your Vinyasa practice to add some resistance to your practice. This is a cult favorite at Flex and is our own twist on the Yoga Sculpt class. Get ready to flow while sculpting muscle definition.
Circuited: This circuit style boot camp class will have your cardio, strength, functional training and core work all in one 45 minute express class. Your teacher will guide you through the stations while you keep your heart rate up and increase your stamina. You may want to bring a towel, we bet you’ll sweat!
No matter what class you decide to take, we know you’re going to feel great afterward, and we can’t wait to welcome you into the FlexFam. Need a bit of help deciding? Send our Client Success Manager an email here!

Limitless New Year 2018

It’s that time of year. Time for the dreaded New Year’s Resolutions!

Whether you’re a life-long mover feeling bored of the same-old routine, or you’re brand new to fitness altogether, we’re here for you.

Come try out Flex Fusion during our FREE Limitless New Year and see what we’re about. We’ll have free barre, bootcamp, TRX, and yoga classes including  Barre 101 and Yoga Basics to start from square one like a pro. Sign up for Meditation and goal setting workshops and stay for free 5-minute chair massages and a popup brow bar so you can start your year off with your best grippy-socked foot forward. Juice samples and fun, healthy snacks will also be provided.

To top it off, our biggest specials of the year will be going on all weekend with your second month free with the purchase of a new annual membership plus take home a free water bottle or gym bag as your new membership perk! Noticing a trend? The whole event is free, focused on you, and will help you start the new year on a positive note.

We’re here to support you, no matter what your fitness and wellness goals. Try something new. You might surprise yourself! This fills up every year, so sign up for Saturday HERE , and Sunday the 14th HERE  just search for Sat & Sun!

 

Can’t wait to meet you!

Why Don’t We Have Long Term Class Packs?

By Blog

Here’s the next question we hear the most often, “Why don’t you have 30 class packages anymore?” It’s not because we’re a) mean or b) trying to trick you. It’s actually because overwhelmingly, long-term class packages are not helpful for the client- they’re just a cash source for the studio. We hear you over there, “that can’t be true!” but come with us on this little journey.

On day one, you buy a 30 class package after deciding to commit to you and your health twice a week. Great! You spend between $400-$525 (We just pulled those from other nearby studios) for a large package with a 6-month exp. and are so stoked to achieve your fitness goals. Month 1 you come 6 times, it’s looking good so far, not too far off your target. Month 2 is busy, so you only make it 4 times but that’s okay. Month 3,4 and 5 fly by and you come twice total. Month 6 is expiration month, so you come 10 times in 3 weeks and then ask to extend your class package so that you don’t lose the rest of your package, but gyms and studios are actually counting on you not using those classes because you’ve already paid.

You look at your fitness goals 6 months later and you are exactly where you were on day one. That’s not what Flex is about. Believe us, it was a tough call to cancel a big ticket item- But coming 1x a month is not going to help our flexfam, it’s just selling a promise we can’t keep. We built Flex to help people actually achieve their fitness goals with support and encouragement. That’s why our memberships are the least expensive in the area and its why we no longer sell large class packs. If you want to work out twice a week, we are so here for it! Grab a silver membership for $125 a month and commit to yourself and your goals. Need to suspend for vacation? We’ve got you. Need a little flexibility? Email us. Flex is designed with you in mind from the second you walk in the door to the moment you sign the 250 barre and beyond. Not sure? We even have month to month options. Remember, it’s only 4% of your day- We promise you are worth that commitment and we’re doing everything in our power to get you there.
