Few words about us.

   Our Story

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

I stopped and stared at my little brother Jackson. It was only after he said this that I realised how loud the music was. Something that I had barely noticed was prohibiting him from feeling comfortable. Jackson is on the autism spectrum and is extra sensitive to noise, crowds, and lights. Too much of these can leave him feeling overwhelmed and wanting to retreat.

We went and asked the gym manager if they could turn the music down. After I explained why, she agreed, and my little brother was put at ease and had a great workout. The most important part was that not a single other gym goer was impacted as most had their headphones in anyway. With a flick of the switch that gym became just a little bit more inclusive.

Founder – Tommy Trout

Tommy has very real and personal experience having a father who was on the autism spectrum and sadly passed away from preventable conditions if only he was a healthier man. Tommy also has an amazing younger brother Jack who’s also on the spectrum and Tommy will not let history repeat itself.

Inclusion is at the heart of WeFlex – through inclusive health & fitness we aim to improve the length and quality of life for those living with disability. We all know the power of regular exercise and improved fitness and it’s our mission to help connect people with unique needs to the immense benefits that the fitness and health industry has to offer.
