Speedflex supports Village Health and Wellness Clubs ‘V Games’ with inclusion of the Speedflex Blade

28 Mar 2024
Taking place on 7th April at Village Ashton, V Games | The North is one of two free regional event / Speedflex
The Village Health & Wellness Clubs ‘V Games’ challenge is back for its 2nd year, after a hugely successful inaugural event which saw over 3,000 people enter.

Far from an elite contest, V Games is open to everyone of all fitness abilities, including non-Village members – and it has just become more inclusive with the addition of the Speedflex Blade.

The V Games features a combination of cardiovascular machines, bodyweight exercises and weighted movements to complete the 8-station challenge in the fastest time possible.

Speedflex are proud to be supporting the V Games, with the inclusion of the Speedflex Blade in place of a less inclusive barbell movement. The Power Clean and Press exercise on the Blade is significantly safer and suitable for a wide range of participants, reducing the risk of injury. The Blade’s built-in screen features an exercise library, where the on-screen trainer demonstrates the form and technique, enabling users to jump straight on the Blade and begin exercising.

James Smith, Speedflex Director of Sales UK: “We’re really pleased to support Village Clubs and the V Games, including the Speedflex Blade makes the challenge unique and more accessible. The Blade has proven really popular with Village members, both on the gym-floor and in the small group training ‘Blade Blast’ which centres around it, with auxiliary stations. We’re really looking forward to the V Games and look out for Team Speedflex!”

Taking place on 7th April at Village Ashton, V Games | The North is one of two free regional events, welcoming members and non-members to team-up or tackle the event solo for a chance to bag £1k worth of prizes including a Speedflex hoodie, free membership, hotel breaks and fitness tech goodies. With 33 clubs across the UK, Village will host the V Games South later in the year, enabling members and the public another chance to compete.

In 2024 Speedflex aims to continue expanding into gyms, leisure centres, hotels and beyond. Speedflex will be hosting multiple events for key industry professionals and clients, helping to expand client base and reach bigger markets.

Testimonial
“Fortis Powered by Speedflex is one of our most popular classes and the Championships have already become a much-anticipated annual highlight.
Members of all ages and fitness levels take part and thanks to the unique Speedflex concept it’s a real level playing field, rewarding effort over ability.
We’re proud to have such an inclusive fitness competition which represents our whole member demographic and fitness ethos.”

– Matt Hague, regional fitness business manager, Everyone Active
Testimonial
"We’re constantly striving to enhance our guests' experience and partnering with Speedflex allows us to provide the very latest in connected fitness for our guests and members.
The workout is both safe and inclusive which makes it the perfect fit for our diverse range of customers. Our guests can now enjoy a revolutionary fitness experience during their stay, reaffirming our commitment to offering the best amenities and services at The QHotels Collection."

– Keith Pickard, group director of golf, health club and spa, The QHotels Collection
Testimonial
"Jubilee Hall Trust has been pleasantly surprised with the Speedflex units. Not because of how good they are, the ease of use and the smoothness of movement - we knew they were good! We were surprised by how many of our senior customers used it, intuitively and without prompt.
Many operators have machines which are challenging for certain demographics of our community to use, least of all our seniors! But Speedflex is different. I have seen customers approach it for the first time, play on the screen and easily start a workout, and better still, they say their joints didn't hurt either.
Whilst many operators would put two units next to a rig, we have one in an open space and another in a quiet space; more private, less on show. It’s this unit the majority of individual users go to. Yes, the studio classes are better for having one but don’t rule out having one as part of your special populations area too.
I was surprised how well Speedflex sits in both camps. HIIT Without the HURT, perfect for classes and studio but equally as good for seniors to do those all-important compound movements; Osteoporosis fighting, strength training. Riskfree."

– Jon Giles, chief executive, Jubilee Hall Trust
