Who we are.

“Can we please leave? It’s too loud for me.”

WeFlex began with two brothers, Tommy and Jack, in a gym, having fun and getting their Flex on! However, Jack being on the Autism Spectrum meant that he had trouble finding a personal trainer who would meet his unique needs. So, Tommy became a personal trainer himself, and trained Jack. It was whilst studying for his Cert. IV, when Tommy noticed a complete lack of training and services, supporting people living with disability in the health and fitness industry. Hence, WeFlex was born!
