“Ok all you hard core body builders and power lifters, I have been a member of Flex since day one. My membership number is 12. Big Al and I go back to 1990 years before Flex opened and he has major knowledge in this sport and Zach’s young man energy and ideas will only make this place better. I travel 6 months out of the year with my career and work out all over the globe but nothing beats Flex. Come check us out.”

“Favourite gym in the tidewater area. The equipment is great and the dumbbells go up to 150 pounds. The gym does not take holidays off. Visitor fee is $10 dollars.”

-Christian Lomax


“I have been coming to this gym since I was 13 years old. This gym taught me how to work hard and push through pain. It helped me in life and on the football field. Big Al and Zach still train me to this day and it hasn’t changed not one bit. I still see the same people training here that was here when I was a kid. I feel that everyone should train here”

– Eli Harold


“Flex Gym has become part of our family. Six years ago, our high school son started working out with “Big Al” at Flex Gym hoping to play Division I baseball in college. He was offered a scholarship to play baseball at the College of William and Mary, where he is currently playing baseball as a senior (still attending Flex when he’s home). As only a teenager can…he sarcastically urged my husband and me to begin “lifting weights” because we had gotten “soft”. I now have great muscle tone, and love the way my clothes fit! With the help of good trainers and the “family feel” at Flex, we love going to the gym…and it’s been almost two years for me!”


“Best gym ever . I have been around in and out of there since 1996. Great people awesome staff and trainers. Work out there long enough it becomes like home. Uncle Al and Bonnie the best there is, was and ever will be. If you have not worked out there you are missing out. Go check them out.”

– Clyde Bryant


“Best gym in the 757 in my opinion. I’ve been working out here since I was younger. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, great atmosphere, and every piece of equipment you could need for your workout. I always feel welcomed at Flex, I couldn’t imagine working out anywhere else.”

– Tarry Pulliam


“As a 15 year follower of Al and Bonnie’s training philosophy, I have introduced my son to the training techniques for the past 2 1/2 years and happy to say he is a lifer also.”

– Gerald Marlowe, Member since 1994


“Whether you are a beginner or have been training for years, Flex Gym is exactly where you need to be. Veteran trainers Al, Bonnie and Zach watch you like a hawk, correct your form, develop individualized programs, offer nutritional guidelines and eagerly encourage you to reach your goals. This year’s Biggest Loser pushed me right off of the sofa and smack into bathing suit season – and I couldn’t be happier with the results. When you workout at Flex, you know you will be monitored, supported, pushed, and given the very best training advice in the Hampton Roads area.”

-Karen Jones


“After one year at Flex Gym, I am 10 pounds lighter and feel physically better than I have in a decade. With direction from Al, Bonnie and Tony I have discovered that stayng “fit” is not difficult. The suggested workout for me requires less than an hour in the gym three times per week. It has given me results beyond my expectations. The expertise here is amazing and it is the reason that I just renewed my membership for another year!””

-Janie Brown


“I have lifted in over 400 gyms across the country and you are a top five! Truly a good old fashioned power lifter paradise.””

Thanks for the workouts!
