Great classes both for home and for flex. A very good circuit with machines is very good. The weight room is good and the ellipticals are very good too. The whole thing is not too big not too small. The people that work there are great very engaging

Everything! Small but very sophisticated gym. I was dropping in for at least a year, paying for a day pass, exp,oring other opportunities in terms of training. FLEX won it! Highly recommended!

1)The Flex team is very professional, personable and engaging, so that you feel like a valued member: 2)The gym is well-located and equipment & gym are well-maintained and kept pristine; 3) Lastly, all members are required to provide proof of vaccination, an absolute essential until Covid becomes ‘endemic.’ In a perfect world, Flex management would still require its members to “mask” upon entry - however it is what it is. Many thx for a wonderful gym experience, [FIRST NAME REMOVED] S.

This small, friendly neighborhood gym has everything you need for an intimidation-free workout. It is so easy to pop in and focus on exercise. No loud TVs or overly intense music, people are polite, friendly, and I never wait for a machine. Pretty much perfect.

Bruce, Kathleen, and the team are excellent. The gym is great for all ability levels, and it's not pushy, loud, bright, or cult-y. Looking forward to showering coming back.

The personal touch at Flex is so nice. Plus, I really really like the TRX class led by Jordan. She does such a good job challenging us and encouraging us at the same time.

OAKLAND, CA
Flex is a great neighborhood gym. I always say that walking into Flex is like walking into Cheers. The management listens to the members requests and concerns. Flex had great in gym classes, but also provide a number of Zoom classes. I have only good things to say about Flex and the management.

Small, nearby, friendly, and I love the circuit.

Oakland, CA
After not attending a gym in over a year and a half, I was very nervous about coming back - partially due to health and safety but mostly because gyms can be intimidating! Not so at FLEX, the atmosphere is warm and welcoming and staff/patrons are very helpful & friendly. It feels good to be back!

Oakland, CA
Staff, senior fitness, wish you used Cara more for dance classes.

Woodinville, WA
The three Senior Fitness online workouts are perfect for me and I never miss the Tuesday evening online Pilates. I've never been stronger.

Oakland, CA
The fact that members are required to mask & provide proof of vaxx. Additionally, the gym is always spotless & the configuration (ie 4/5 separate rooms) gives members plenty of room to work out. The Flex team is always professional & helpful, and the gym is well-located in the heart of the Piedmont Ave. neighborhood.

San Francisco, CA
I live in SF and can’t find in person classes that fit my needs. Jana’s Zumba class via zoom is perfect! She’s a great teacher. I also use the online recordings for her class and others I want to sample.

Oakland, CA
Lori is awesome! I love the proof of vax to get in and that the studio is so clean and spacious

OAKLAND, CA
I like the fact that you are open early. I meet friends at the gym and I stay healthy.

Oakland, CA
While a small gym, it never feels crowded enough to where you can't do your workout. There's enough room, weights, and machines to accomodate your level and type of work out for the day. The gym does a great job of fostering a collaborative environment as other members seem to care about etiquette like not hogging an area or weights for too long. One of the best gym going experiences I've had.

Oakland, CA
Machines are well maintained, the gym is clean, staff are helpful and friendly

Piedmont, CA
Quick to respond to e-mail questions

It is personal, friendly, not crowded, but with options for exercise and weight-training. Lockers for storage while utilizing the facilities, restrooms, water, and sanitation for safe use of machines and equipment. Towels as necessary.

Oakland, CA
I haven't visited, except to say hello. I am a senior employed in health care and do not want to have any exposure to any mutation of Covid-19. FLEX appears to be doing a great job of keeping the space safe. My profession takes precedent at the moment.
