George is great! I recommended him to two colleagues as well, and they also love him! I worked out with him for over a year. He came to my house 2x per week after the kids bedtime. He was always on time and never cancelled, except for once when he had the flu! He is also very easy to talk to. When I started with George I could barely do a push up. I couldn't even get on the flat side of the BOSU! Or do a pike on the TRX! By the end of the year I could do all those things like a rock star. I felt much stronger and better about myself!I will def use him again in the future. All you moms, this is a great way to get your strength back, care for yourself without taking much time away from the kiddos. More...

I love the location and friendly staff. I appreciate that it's never too crowded as well, especially for the times I go. The facilities are great, and the gym is nicely laid out. If I had any suggestion, it would be maybe for one additional ergometer (rowing machine). That's my go-to machine, but since there's only one often times I have to wait until someone else finishes. Other than that, I really love it there. Keep up the good work! More...

Easy 5 stars. Great value, friendly staff, clean, uncrowded. Nice yoga/class room, spinning room, enough cardio equipment, a variety of resistance machines, and another room with 2 racks, dumbells & assorted toys. Moved away; miss this place.

George is one of the best trainers I've ever had (and I have worked with a lot over the years!). He puts a lot of thought into planning each session and creates plans that are designed to maximize your success. He knows a lot about various types of exercises--TRX, free weights, boxing, high interval training, etc.--so it is never boring or predictable to train with him, which is important both for working different sets of muscles and for keeping the workouts interesting. I would definitely recommend George if you are looking for someone to help you meet your training, muscle toning or weight loss goals. He is knowledge and he cares a lot about you and your success.

Previous reviews are spot-on, and I add my plus vote to a great place.

There's something for everyone, clean & inviting space, good location (and approve people-watching shoot, right onto Piedmont Avenue), nice staff, varied schedule of classes.

After a week here I'm quite happy.

This gym is as clean as it gets. Machines are always lubed up and in perfect working order. I'm always impressed with how swiftly things get taken care of at this facility, in comparison to other gyms I've tried. Karen, the manager, runs the tightest ship in the shipping business....or fitness business, that is. Ty and Jennifer at the front desk are always greeting me by name every time I enter, which makes me feel like I'm supremely welcome and coming to a local hang out where everyone knows your name, as opposed to a health club--It keeps me coming back over and over and singing their praises.

Small, but wonderful neighborhood gym. Been a member for 3 years and love it. It does get busy typically between 530 - 7, but otherwise, there's plenty of room in the back. Good mix of free weights and machines / TRX. Great personal trainers as well (at affordable rates). More...

What I like about Flex Fitness on Piedmont n Oakland? Everything - machines are great and well maintained, great community, good facilities, and the staff are all awesome: George, Bruce, Ricardo, Jason, all super nice, very kind and supportive, and helpful. Flex is a very special awesome community.

I've been working with George for over a year now.  He is the best trainer I have ever worked with.  He is patient, funny, and pushes to get the most out of each session.  I find I am sticking with the schedule much better when he comes to our home, compared with going to a gym.  And it is much more convenient and time efficient.  I'm not yet at the point where I can bend thick iron bars, but definitely making big progress.  Highly recommended.

Everyone is chill, from people working there to the clients, and the clients are very diverse so no one feels out of place. There are usually enough cardio machines, and the circuit is great. More...

I take a spin class taught by Heather at this gym which I love! She is super motivating and supportive. The gym is neat and clean, has equipment in good shape, and is not crowded when I go early in the morning (before work). The location is very convenient also, a lot of street parking and a parking lot that is free before 8am. I plan to continue going here. More...

This gym is an excellent place. It is clean, nice environment, good taste in workout music, excellent instructors, the classes are fun and versatile, great workout machines and friendly staff. I really enjoyed my time there!. If I still lived near by the piedmont ave. I could go to flex again without any doubts. Believe me, I'm a gym bug and this is the best place where I've workout by far!
Thank you Flex, George and Bruce and all the staff there for being so attentive to costumers, you really take care of us!

Cozy place to have perform your own training plan, even though there seem to be enough people to help you out with setting new plan if needed. And they have everything there for the good training. Great experience! More...

This is a great neighborhood gym. The staff is always friendly and helpful; the equipment is well maintained. Whether you want to do circuit training, free weights or take one of many classes, this is the place to come. Just a real great environment to work out in. More...
