    You are working diligently on learning how to do a handstand.

    You keep trying to kick up to the wall, but no matter how many times you try, you just can't get it. Instead of screaming or punching a hole through the wall out of sheer frustration (we have all been there)

    You reach out to your easily accessible, online coach! Before you know it she's pointing out what you are doing wrong, gives you a few cues, and BOOM, up you go!

    Now you're kicking up to the wall with ease!

    What about trying to get your splits?

    You keep stretching and stretching, and pushing through the pain.
    Telling yourself you just need to stretch even more!

    During your LIVE online class, you ask, "how can I get lower in my splits, I feel like I've tried everything!" "How about we hold off on stretching for now, and instead work on stabilizing your core, and strengthening your glutes so your body can support a deeper range of motion?"

    She gives you some stability exercises to work on over the next week.
    You check back in a few days later and BAM! Your splits feel more accessible than ever, and way less painful!

    This course will change your life!

    Is This The Right Course For Me?

    Whether you are just starting out, or have spent years training, Flex-Ed can help you reach your fitness goals. I incorporate techniques tried and tested by hundreds of students to help you master skills including handstands, splits, backbends, and eventually more contortion skills. My courses are designed to build you a solid foundation from the ground up. I’ll teach you proper techniques to develop flexibility while incorporating strength training to create stability for this increased range of motion. Each course builds on the one before it, so you won't ever feel left behind and you can proceed at your own pace. All you need is an open mind and a willingness to learn. I will be there for you every step of the way to answer your questions, give you feedback and help to keep you focused and motivated!


    How Much Does Flex-ED Cost?

    The mistake that most people make is they think the "do-it-yourself" route is cheaper. What they don't take into account is how slow and ineffective that can be.

    Or worse...

    The costs associated with the time wasted and bad habits formed by training without a qualified coach to provide you with appropriate feedback and corrections on your form.

    What good are follow along videos and exercises when you don't know if you are training them correctly?

    If you are like me, you want to make the most of your training time and efforts by performing these drills correctly and building proper technique that will actually lead you to reaching your goals.

    This is your chance to receive coaching directly from me, so you can train efficiently and effectively.

    Plus, I have a 30-day Money Back Guarantee!

    Reports Are In...

    Meet Lily & Lauren Eisenberg

    Check out this awesome mother-daughter duo in action!

    Lily is a super talented and hardworking competitive gymnast, who started working with me to develop her flexibility and soon fell in love with hand-balancing! (I mean, what's not to love?!)

    Lauren, following in her daughter's footsteps, has also begun working on her mobility and is even working on handstands herself! There's nothing these girls they can't do!

    Meet Margaux Brissiaud

    "THANK YOU SHELLYFLEX!

    -For creating an amazing beta test program for headstands, arm stands, crows, handstands and handstands press that you organized like a pro! (I truly admire the way you decided to go about it and make it happen!)

    -For the live classes on top of the beta test program.

    -For your corrections, suggestions, and incredible database of exercises shared with us during the live classes!

    -For your time and energy.

    I was introduced to your program thanks to the Instagram algorithms. Thanks to you, I have learned about the mistakes I was making, which made obtaining a proper form impossible. I learned new exercises for mobility and strength! I loved the partner live classes too; such a fun way to exercise with your partner!

    If anyone I know is looking to train their crows, handstands feet hanging over head or handstand press, I will refer them to ShellyFLEX Athletics :)"
