About Alexis Reed

Alexis Reed, Fitness Writer, Interview Guest, and Contributor

My name is Alexis Reed, and I am a fitness and healthy lifestyle writer, influencer, yoga teacher, and group fitness instructor living in the Washington, DC, USA Metropolitan Area (Maryland specifically). 

I am certified to teach the following formats: indoor cycling, barre, HIIT, TRX, youth volleyball, and trauma-informed yoga (RYT-500). I teach classes at Onelife Fitness (with regular classes at the Pike & Rose and Olney locations), extendYoga, and Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS). I also teach at events and am hired for private classes.

I am a co-founder of DMV Fitness Fam, an inclusive fitness community in DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia (known locally as the DMV).

Why I Started flecksoflex.com

In the summer of 2012, I looked at myself long and hard in the mirror and decided I needed to make a change. A former Division I volleyball player, I realized that I had really neglected my health and wellness and that I needed to stop making excuses about working too many hours and not having enough free time; instead, I worked on signing up for a new gym membership and making healthier choices.

After losing 20 pounds, and toning muscles I’d forgotten I had, I was on my way to pure bliss… until a shoulder dislocation set me back a couple of months. Now, I’m on a mission to get my healthy lifestyle back and quit making excuses for bad habits. Allow me to share my journey to fitness and health with you!
