Former Newcastle and Southampton striker Alan Shearer was back in the town that kickstarted his career last week to launch a new fitness training experience that is being rolled out across the country.
On a visit to Southampton, Shearer told OnTheScene that the new experience, called Speedflex, has revolutionised training and he is convinced that had it been around during his playing career that he would have suffered less injuries and enjoyed an extended playing career. The system allows for a professional athlete to train alongside a pensioner as the machines respond to your force as opposed to the addition of weights. This means there is no damage to muscles and users will experience little to no muscle soreness post session.
Shearer told OnTheScene’s Matthew Thowney “it’s a unique and different way of training, it’s high intensity but very low impact, if any at all. This results in no stiffness or pain after each session”.

According to the Speedflex website, sessions are high in intensity, low in impact and short in duration. They comprise a combination of Speedflex machines and traditional exercise modalities, guaranteeing a total body workout. Users are able to burn more calories than they ever thought possible. If you usually hate exercise Speedflex offers a way for you to get fitter and healthier that’s tolerable. If you already love exercise, you’ll love Speedflex too. It’s a great way to challenge your body in a new way that’s unlike anything else you’ve ever tried.
