We are Holly and Wendy, the duo behind fLEX Fitness. Together, we have a vision to make a difference in the lives of others. We’re passionate about helping others achieve healthy, happy, and balanced lives through approachable group training, private training, and specialty training in Rockbridge County. We started by creating a kids camp, Camp PLAY, for area children back in 2009, but our passion continued to grow and we couldn’t contain it.
Together, we have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with this community. We have selected a team that reflects our mission to take the fear out of fitness, making wellness a friendly experience for EVERY body. We focus on building strong, capable, fit bodies in our space, meeting you at your fitness level every time.
It’s an honor to welcome you to our space.
