Speedflex is a multi-functional full-body workout featuring a hydraulic machine with a unique "free motion bar", which returns the force exerted by whoever's using it. This makes it ideal for all ages and abilities as you can make your workout as leisurely or as intense as you want it to be.

Speedflex is a multi-functional full-body workout featuring a hydraulic machine with a unique "free motion bar", which returns the force exerted by whoever's using it. This makes it ideal for all ages and abilities as you can make your workout as leisurely or as intense as you want it to be.

It combines cardiovascular and resistance workouts to improve your fitness and strength at the same time as burning calories. It's also low-impact, so you'll experience very little or no muscle soreness afterwards. 

The studio initially opened in January 2020 but had to close soon afterwards due to the pandemic. We're now offering three instructor-led classes, completely free for GO Gateshead members:

Speedflex intro: For those who are new or returning to Speedflex. Learn how to safely use the stations and optimise your workout, while building the confidence to progress to more intense classes.
Speedflex 30: An inclusive class that blends a mix of high intensity exercises with functional training exercises. Expect a challenging session as you work all major muscle groups over 30 minutes.
Rolling Speedflex: A drop-in class following the same format as Speedflex 30, but you can join in when it suits you. The session starts and ends when you want.
