Top 5 fitness tips for Christmas & New Year


Christmas is always a time when we over-indulge.  So we asked our Gym Consultant, Barry Grinham of Prime Energy his top 5 tips for keeping the exercise going and how to still be healthy at Christmas.

We know that new tiers and regulations may impact what you can and can’t do but we hope these tips might inspire you to have a go.

And this is what Barry told us!

  1. Go out and walk the dog …even if you don’t have a dog. Walking , especially a brisk one is great not only for the body, but also your head & soul too.
  2. Don’t purchase bigger plates for the Christmas Day lunch!!  Instead, fill your plate with a “rainbow” of veggies.  Try a nut or herb stuffing rather than the fatty sausage meat & remove the skin from your turkey which contains masses of fat that will have to be worked off!
  3. Depending on your tier and what you are allowed to do under new regulations, try to find a supportive friend or relative who will encourage you to do some exercise over the festive season.  Supporting each other will be more beneficial, rewarding and fun.
  4. Try to continue attending classes over the festive season (if you are allowed to), or find a class online. Otherwise get on your bike, go for a swim, use nature’s gym – the great outdoors. With this in mind for the past 30 years I’ve held a “Pulse Raiser “ Bootcamp on Christmas morning. It is always well attending with a little “fizz” at the end. A mega way to start the big day!!
  5. A good, restful nights sleep is so important. Try to get 6-8 hours a night.


We hope that this has inspired you to try at least one of these tips, but the main thing this Christmas is to stay safe.  We must all work together and although it might not be the Christmas you had planned, we do hope you’ll make the most of this time of year.  Stay safe and Happy Christmas from all of us at Garageflex.

Our latest competition winner

We’ve been up to Scotland quite a lot recently and this garage was also a winner in a recent competition. Our challenge to customers was to send in a photo of their garage storing household items and we loved this one that was sent through.
The owner now has a £100 voucher to spend on our e-store!

A fabulous new Family Gym!

You may well have spotted this over on our case study page but it is such a wonderful space that we have also created a little video too.  As well as seeing some before and after shots, we were also lucky enough to have a chat with the owner and her thoughts are included too.  Enjoy!

Just some of our November 2020 Installation Highlights

It has been another bumper month for Garageflex installations, right across the UK. Here are a small selection of just some of the installations we’ve completed including a new gym set-up for Endurance Runner Susie Chan, resin floors and complete garage makeovers.

A great DIY Installation

We really wanted to share this great installation with you of a DIY garage project.

The customer purchased some FlexiTrack from us as she wanted to organise her garage, get the car in and generally have a real tidy-up.

So it was great to see the finished photos that Mrs L shared with us and the great review she gave us on our FlexiTrack product.

“Flexitrack is a fantastic product if you have a lot of items to hang up in your garage wall, but cannot decide what should go where. With the flexitrack, I can easily change where I want to put up items without the worry of having to drill/remove wall hooks. Alastair and his team were very helpful, and swift with their delivery of the flexitracks. Again, excellent quality product and easy to install. My garage is now much more organised thanks to flexitrack, and can now finally park my car in the garage. Highly recommend!”  Mrs L, Surrey, November 2020

My Gym Space by Endurance Runner Susie Chan

We are delighted to share with you a new blog created by Endurance Runner, Susie Chan, talking about her fantastic garage makeover.

In her blog Susie takes us through the transformation including the work that we did for her and the equipment she has kitted it out with.  It is actually really interesting to se what she has in her new gym space including a turbo trainer, running machine and cross ropes.

Her thoughts on her garage?  “It’s like a new room for the house, and all of us have been making daily use of the space. Looking forward to the summer months when we can open up the front and have the sunshine in! “

What a winner this is!
The owner of this beauty sent it to us when we invited Garageflex customers to send in photos of their completed garage makeovers including a car being stored in it.
Certainly a worthy winner for a £100 discount voucher which has been sent out to him.  Thank you to all of our customers who sent in photos of their garage – keep a look out for our next challenge to be sent out next week.

Christmas Opening Times

Games room just perfect for isolation!

How is this for a transformation!  Completed a few weeks ago in the midst of the national lockdown, it really did become a great space for the whole family to keep busy.  With wall cladding (FlexiPanel, metal storage cabinets, bike racks and floor tiles installed, it transformed into a space anyone would love to be in.
