Fitness Flex Personal Training and Fatloss Bootcamp is no ordinary bootcamp or exercise class. This unique Fitness community is an indoors and outdoors fitness programme which bases exercises around the functional movements of our bodies (natural ways in which our bodies are designed to move and exercise). Our training is based on ‘HIIT’ (High Intensity Interval Training), which is scientifically known to be the best and most effective way to increase your metabolism and send your body into fat burning overdrive.
Our Bootcamp uses a variety of fitness equipment including ropes, kettle bells, resistant bands, medicine balls, TRX, skipping ropes, boxing, sledges, barbells, dumbbells, sledge hammers and tractor tyres.
Alongside this we use bodyweight exercises like press ups, squats, sit ups, BURPEES, lunges, planks, star jumps and even rollie pollies! Our training is based on functional movements with the aim of reducing unwanted fat, increasing muscle tone and promoting a healthy lifestyle.
You will flip, pull, push, slam, throw, drag, sprint, swing, hop, skip and jump your way to a new level of fitness! A new level of FUNctional Fitness.
We promise that you will have never trained in such a new, fun and creative way!
With the expert nutritional advice and education you will receive the best results possible alongside fun and effective exercises - take a look at www.fitnessflex.co.uk for more info!

Protein is required for proper muscle elasticity and plays a vital role in building strength - hours of exercising won't build muscle without adequate protein.
Early mornings? ☀️
While you sleep, your body uses up most of the nutrients from the last meal you ate. When this energy store is depleted, you lack the protein to facilitate muscle and tissue repair. Eating a helping of easily digested protein when you wake quickly replenishes these stores. Whey protein digests fast and is ideal for early morning energy. Milk, ricotta cheese and yogurt are good sources of whey protein. Egg protein is also ideal for morning replenishment.
Between meals? 🍱
Eating a little protein between meals keeps a steady supply to your muscles. Casein is best for a continuous source of protein. Apart from feeding your muscles properly, between-meal protein keeps you full and helps prevent unhealthy snacking. Have a small helping of cheese, milk or a casein protein drink to hold you over until the next meal.
Post Workout? 💪
Exercising creates small tears in your muscles - these require protein to repair properly. The best time to eat protein is within 30 minutes following a workout. This immediate supply helps your muscles heal and become stronger. The fast-digesting nature of whey protein provides your muscles with the quick boost they need. However, your muscles’ protein needs remain heightened for an extended period. A serving of casein protein, which coagulates in your stomach and digests slowly, is perfect for this. Cottage cheese is an excellent source of casein protein, as is most other cheese and milk. If you prefer a simple source, make a drink from casein protein powder.
Before Bed? 😴
A helping of casein protein directly before bed feeds your body as you sleep. The casein feeds your muscles and prevents your stomach from becoming empty early in the night. This lessens the gap between when your body uses up your last meal’s energy and when you replenish its stores in the morning.
