Speedflex develops new personalised HIIT programme to support the overweight getting into fitness

The Speedflex workout is a 45minute HIIT-based workout, designed around Speedflex’s unique personalised resistance concept
As the government announced its new obesity strategy to limit the impact of a potential second wave of COVID-19, HIIT specialists, Speedflex is also doing its bit to help tackle the issue.

The company has revealed plans to support their communities by offering a new subsidised programme that will enable people with a BMI of 30 and over the chance to get into fitness.

The programme will start with a specialised InBody assessment which allows Speedflex experts to measure, track and record participants’ progress.

This is followed by six weeks of bespoke HIIT classes and then completed with a final InBody assessment towards the end of the programme to take stock, and look at the success of the plan.

Paul Ferris, Speedflex CEO, said: “Staying fit and healthy has never been more important, and it’s vital that we support our community by helping them to lead active lifestyles. This isn’t just a fitness issue, we’re facing a national health crisis and we have to tackle the issue of obesity head-on.

“Our new programme has been specially designed to help overweight individuals to begin, or restart their fitness journey in an environment that is supportive, motivating and entirely empathetic of their own personal situation.

“Those struggling with their weight can often start new programmes with renewed levels of motivation, but are all too often derailed by aches, pains and injuries.”

According to Ferris, because Speedflex only uses concentric movements, it’s the ideal workout to help overweight individuals workout safely, and receive all the proven benefits of HIIT without risking injury.

The Speedflex workout is a 45minute HIIT-based workout, designed around Speedflex’s unique personalised resistance concept which allows every participant to train at their optimum level.

The reason Speedflex is so effective is its ability to allow participants to workout at a high intensity, whilst keeping the impact low. Anyone with a higher BMI can safely join a standard session and burn more calories, as with Speedflex, a free motion bar generates personalised resistance levels.

The new subsidised programme will cost £12 for two Inbody assessments or £50 for two Inbody assessments and six weeks of Speedflex sessions.
