Andrew Rusk

Personal Trainer

Hello I am Andrew and I am the founder of Flexion Fitness. I opened Flexion as I had seen a gap in the market for an open and friendly gym where everyone would feel welcome to work out. I had previously been a joiner, fitting kitchens until I developed a pain in my wrists which was due to Kienbocks disease. This means my wrists are painful a lot of the time and I must take a lot medication to get movement within the joints. If you have a condition you feel is preventing you joining a gym come have a coffee with me and we can chat about how to make that possible for you. I believe we can make gyms accessible for everyone. I am passionate about creating a friendly gym where everyone feels welcome. My dream is to achieve a gym that meets all the needs of the client from opening our own snack bar to having showers in the gym. Your gym should be like your second home where you feel you can come, and I think here at Flexion we have achieved that. I love and appreciate my team and couldn’t recommend them highly enough, you really have your pick of the best! I myself am one of the first coaches in Northern Ireland with a recognised qualification in strength and conditioning. I work with athletes and sports teams to improve their performance, whether its for fitness, strength, rehab or weight loss. I also work with clients that have health conditions such as Diabetes, Asthma and COPD that are dependent on medication, which is something a standard personal trainer is not qualified to work with. Finally, I also provide deep tissue massage to aid recovery and loosen muscles after periods of training. Join me at my classes: circuits, spin, bootcamp and men’s strength classes or book in for a personal training session.
