Flex has developed the first inclusive physical training methodology being implemented in its urban training centers, post-conflict zones, workshops and educational events. This company is making it possible for people with disabilities and their families to train together regardless of their physical condition, thanks to the special design of the tools needed to practice boxing, yoga for people with disabilities, the first spinning device for people without leg mobility using a patented machine, crossfit and so on.

"The population with disabilities requires physical training to prevent diseases that worsen their quality of life and to reduce physical and mental health risks, but 80% of the population is of low income," explains the promoter Juan Pablo Acosta. In addition, they offer a space for accompaniment (75% of their clientèle is made up of family members): "They need spaces to reduce their stress levels and have physical strength so as to avoid injury, while also strengthening relationships between them."

The mission of this company is also to make people with disabilities and their families aware of the new living conditions they will have to face: "We are a unique option in the market for people with disabilities."
