MEET THE OWNERS – BEV HAHN & DES ELLIOTT
I am Bev and this is my partner Des and we are the proud owners of Flex Fitness & Burnham health and fitness clubs.
I was introduced to Des back in 1989 through the sport of competitive bodybuilding. Des became my manager, coach, mentor and partner and through his coaching, support and guidance I went on to win 2 British Championships, 6 European Championships, a World Title and Miss Universe together with many other titles to numerous to mention, in fact I have over 50 trophies and medals, gold rings and crystal vases taking pride of place in our living room that I won over a span of 12 years of competing.
Besides running two of Active4Less’s health clubs we also run a Martial Arts School, Matt Fiddes, and when we do get time off we enjoy relaxing at home and curling up with a good book, watching a movie and of course trying to keep ourselves fit and healthy. I enjoy cooking and entertaining friends and family – and just ordinary things really.
Des and I have been involved in coaching Professional Bodybuilders, Fitness Competitors and Athletes since the 80’s and besides running our health clubs we also run a Martial Arts School concentrating on teaching kids life skills, anti- bullying, confidence, self-control and how to respect others.
I finally retired from competition in 1997 and our dream was to open our own Health & Fitness Club which we did in 1997 and our second in 1998, we then went on to our current club (formerly known as) Flex, in 2005 (which by the way happened to be one of the very first clubs I worked in all those years before) and have now re-branded it to Active4Less in March 2011 and opened our newest Active4less Burnham in December 2012 with Declan Ryan.
We are passionate about our business and the service that we offer, developing professional relationships with people and focusing on making sure that they are taken care of. We have trained coached and mentored hundreds of people to achieve their desired goals and have built a strong reputation for being passionate about wanting to help anyone realise their full potential with a desire to succeed. Whether this is to lose weight, get fit, develop their health and wellbeing, train to competition level, or build a successful business.
