About Flex.tv : live video fitness classes.
HI ELLIOTT, TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF & YOUR MISSION.
My name is Elliot James Perry. I’m the CEO and founder of FLEX, the live video workout platform. It’s our mission to help the thirty-one million adults that are not hitting the recommended levels of exercise because of time and commitment issues to get fit.
WHAT IS YOUR SECRET SAUCE TO GET FURTHER?
My secret sauce is that we’ve got a relentless obsession with learning. So there’s always more to be learned, there’s always more knowledge to consume, and here at FLEX, we’re on a mission to learn as much as we possibly can.
WHAT IS YOUR FEEDBACK ABOUT MARATOWN?
The MARATOWNs have been impressive. They’re incredibly comfortable footwear. It’s incredibly important in health and fitness that you have the right posture – when you’re walking, you’re not straining yourself - and these shoes help with that. So, they support our mission of getting those thirty one million adults active.
I mean, you can tell straight away the differences in cushioning from what I was wearing today and what Fabien’s given me with these lovely MARATOWNs, and the fact is, it gets tiresome walking around in this thing in thirty feet, but already I can feel a difference in these. So go to hell, ********!
The other thing is, in the UK nightlife scene, you can’t wear trainers, traditional trainers in the clubs, in bars, so it’s important because I typically find myself wearing plimsolls shoes to get into these places, but the soles AND the cushioning just don’t have that of a traditional trainer, whereas with the MARATOWN you’ve got the comfort of a traditional trainer, but the looks of something for the nightlife scene.
Thank you Elliott for your precious time.
