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!

RON

Trainer / Instructor

Ron’s interest in health and fitness started when he was a student athlete in high school. He participated in various athletic activities such as football, baseball, basketball, soccer. His interest and passion continued into his college career, which led Ron to pursue his education in the study of sport and exercise and mechanics of human body movement. Ron understands that strength training and movement are essential, however, he believes the exercises each individual performs should imitate daily, ‘real-life’ activities such as squatting, bending, twisting, pushing, and pulling; also known as “functional” exercises. Moreover, he believes one must also have a strong understanding about the nutrition component to health, fitness, and performance. Ron has 20 years of experience in the fitness industry and has taught group fitness and bootcamps in San Francisco, Daly City, Burlingame, Belmont, San Carlos, Redwood City, Menlo Park, Palo Alto, and Los Altos Hills. He has more than five years of coaching experience in basketball, baseball, and football at the youth, high school, and college levels. He was the first Athletic Conditioning Specialist and advisor for the SF Warriors Football and Cheer; and formerly the Strength & Conditioning Coach for College of San Mateo Baseball (2011 – 2013 Season).
