Everything we do is based on the FLexercise system, which was pioneered in 1930 by Mary Bagot Stack to energise and strengthen the whole body. She believed that the body works best when posture and alignment are correctly placed and the body is energised.
Mary’s inspirational vision quickly caught on. Within seven years, 166,000 women had joined her Women’s League of Health & Beauty. Mary died in 1935 but her movement thrived thanks to the devotion she inspired in her daughter Prunella and friends Peggy and Joan St.Lo who carried on her work with 50 centres across the country during the Second World War.
Five decades later, the Women’s League of Health & Beauty became the Fitness League in 1999 and became a founder partner of the Exercise, Movement and Dance Partnership (EMDP) in 2006.
With a nationally accredited teaching qualification at Level 3 and Employer Member registration with the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport
and Exercise (CIMSPA) we are well placed to deliver good quality practice and education. Our teachers are at the forefront of the fitness industry and can apply that knowledge to the FLexercise system.
Today, Prunella’s granddaughter Saba Douglas Hamilton is our President and we continue to develop and deliver industry-leading health classes that embody our core principles of exercise, fun and empowerment.
Refreshed and revitalised for today, the FLexercise system is a winning mix of low impact physical exercises, yoga and movement designed to improve your posture, body alignment and balance, leaving you with more energy and a spring in your step.
Our continued popularity is a testament to Mary’s timeless recipe for classes – hard work, good fun, sociable. Our members don’t just stay with us, they encourage their friends to come too.
