WeFlex Academy

Fitness Education has changed forever
Enrol now and support people with a disability through fitness

The personal training we provide at WeFlex is centred around a persons’ individual needs! We wanted to go deeper on this by developing AUSactive CEC & FITREC recognised training courses that personal trainers could undertake to be qualified in working with people with disabilities and this is how the WeFlex Academy was born.

WeFlex Academy has courses focused on specific support needs for our clients that have been developed through appropriate clinical reviews and community consultation. We have collaborated with people with unique needs, who have instructed us on how to instruct you.
