FLEXX Studios Burlingame

ANNABELLE

Owner / Manager

Hello, and welcome to the day you discovered a fitness solution that changes your life. My name is Annabelle, and I’m a wife, mama of two and a former financial services exec who’s always had a passion around fitness as a lifestyle. I wanted to create something that was unique from all the studios I’ve attended over the years, something that not only would provide amazing workouts, but a sense of community, serenity and a place everyone would look forward to coming to. I wanted this studio to be what our clients look forward to the most in their day, where they check everything at the door and are greeted with smiles, get an amazing workout and leave feeling like they are on top of the world!

 

We are a one-stop shop for core AND cardio (Reformer Pilates, TRX, Kickboxing, Strength Training, Bootcamp, Yoga, Cardio Barre & more!). FLEXX Studios is the place that will give you the variety you need to maximize your time, money and fitness goals! Welcome to our FLEXXfam!

NIKKI

Front Desk Manager

My name is Nikki Hennessy and I am excited to be the newest Flexxpert to join the FLEXX Team in Burlingame. I moved to Burlingame in 2018, leaving San Francisco after 17 years. I have two children, ages 11 and 14, who both attend schools nearby, and absolutely love their new community.

As my golden birthday was rapidly approaching I decided to make my health and wellness a priority and have never been in better shape, and have never felt better, both physically and mentally. During Covid I realized the deep impact my dedication to fitness had on my mental health. I enjoy paddle boarding, golfing, running, and of course pilates! I also am modeling for my children the importance of a well balanced life, and my son loves partaking in my at home sessions, and will be one of the youngest new members at FLEXX in a few years!

I have spent most of my career in the fashion industry, working for Louis Vuitton in San Francisco, and opening the Neiman Marcus store in Ala Moana shopping center in 2005. I also worked for many years for Salvatore Ferragamo, where I was able meet one of the original family members and launched my passion for craftsmanship and fashion.

I hope to share my experience in marketing, dedication to clientele, and passion for fitness with the amazing members of FLEXX Studios Burlingame.
