Have you ever watched a pro athlete and ask yourself, "I wonder what they do to be in such great shape. Would I be able to do a workout like a professional athlete?" Well now you have your chance to find out. Flex5 Athletic Conditioning Series is meant to bring out your inner athlete and push you to your limit. 

This series is designed to be high intensity and burn fat and build lean muscle. Most professional athletes are in top shape, so, why don't we all train like athletes if it works for them? Now is your chance to get the same kind of attention as a pro. We will do initial weigh ins (weight, body fat, measurements) as well as post series weigh ins. The workouts will consist of high intensity, full body exercises that will not only challenge your strength, but your cardiovascular level as well. This will challenge you physically and mentally and will leave you feeling tired, yet accomplished after every class! Now who's ready to work? 



If you want more inner peace, well being, and happiness in your life, learn to meditate. If you want to learn to meditate, you can start here.


Meditation has been practiced in India for thousands of years because people knew that it reduces stress, calms the mind and increases inner peace. In the 1970s medical researchers at Harvard University began studying Meditation. They found that during the practice of meditation the body has what they call the relaxation response, which gives the body deep rest that is deeper than the rest from sleep. They also found that through regular meditation that deep rest builds up in the body over time, and it is that deepening reservoir of rest that reduces stress and results in the many benefits of meditation.


Stress accounts for over 60% of doctor visits. Meditation has been found that it can lower blood pressure, cholesterol and the risk of heart disease and stroke, can help relieve stress, depression, insomnia, sleeplessness, anxiety and worry, and can increase productivity, learning, happiness, well being and inner peace. And people report having more mindfulness and deeper transcendence when Yoga and Meditation are combined. 


In the next 10 weeks we will explore the many facets of Chakra Flow Yoga and how movement and breath can sync in ecstasy and prepare the body for Meditation. We will practice many different forms of mediation so that you can find the practice that most suits you.

I'm a TV meteorologist for Fox 46 in Charlotte, and went to Flex 5 after I had ballooned up to 280 lbs.  I've been training with Brian Mazhari and doing yoga with Victoria Martinez for a few months now.  The weights dropping off(down over 30 lbs), and I'm feeling and looking so much better.

Brian's a great motivator.  Very positive, but tough. He keeps the exercises different every time I come in, so I don't get bored.  But, I do get pooped.  My body is definitely changing shape.

I've never done yoga before, and was about as inflexible as a human being could get.  It's amazing the progress we've made.  While still not the most flexible man, I'm getting up and down with my kids like never before.  I had a constant pain in my shoulder that would give me headaches, and that almost never happens anymore.  She's been pushing me further and further, and I can even do the crow pose.

Petro layed the groundwork with an eating plan, and a way to live.  He came to my house, and cleaned out my kitchen, talked  to my wife, and made sure I was mentally ready to roll.  Plus, he showed me how to order when I do go out to eat.  They're hitting on all cylinders. ~ Brian Basham, Charlotte, NC


I went to my first yoga class with Victoria as part of a work event and to be honest I was there to network. I knew I wasn't going to be good at yoga and I wasn't interested in just laying in a dark room and breathing deeply. After that first class I became addicted to the environment of the classes and then quickly to yoga itself. Victoria is amazing and her energy and attitude are both contagious. The love and joy you feel in her classes are 100% coming from her and it's addictive. I am thinner, stronger, and happier now than I was before that first class. If I could give more than 5 stars I would! ~ Alexandria Smith, Charlotte, NC


Five months ago, I'd never met a yoga pose that I liked; then Victoria and her weekly Chakra Flow classes came into my life. Pretty soon,  my tree poses became less wobbly, my crow more confident, and Chaturanga Dandasana to up dog vinyasa was flowing smoothly.  Victoria is a patient teacher and her well thought out classes have been a perfect complement to my running routine. ~ Kelly Junk-Merritt, Charlotte, NC


I am so happy that Flex5 was recommended to me a couple of months ago. Victoria's yoga classes are the best in Charlotte. Her practice includes incorporation of the Chakras, a variation of yoga poses and essential oils. She teaches a safe yoga practice which I find to be very important. Thank you Victoria for sharing your practice and positivity!!
Flex5 studio is clean and the staff is friendly. Not only are the yoga classes something I recommend everyone try, but they also offer personal training and group fitness classes. ~ Jorgia Pace, Charlotte, NC


I started working with Victoria mid May. She is an excellent instructor, very knowledgeable, very encouraging. Through her guidance I have excelled beyond my wildest expectations… Especially for an old lady! I love that working with Victoria is a whole body experience… Fitness – using strength training, cardio, yoga and Pilates. Nutrition guidance without dieting… Spiritual and emotional wellness through yoga practice as well as learning how to use Essential Oils  for healing,  stress relieving and overall body wellness. I thoroughly enjoy my "total package "experience with Victoria in an exceptional environment!!!! Be the change!!!!! ~ Jo Carter, Charlotte, NC


I cannnot explain how much I love coming to flex 5. I feel so comfortable working out there and actually look forward to working out now. It's very personable and the facility is amazing. I have also never been crazy about yoga, but Victoria has made me fall in love with it! Her classes are small and I leave feeling refreshed and happy every time I leave, and Brian has helped tremendously with my strength (prepare to be sore). Really the whole team works together to help you achieve your goals and their interaction together makes for a fun place to work out where you actually feel a part of them team. ~ Troy Jordan, Charlotte, NC


I have used Flex5 for many fitness and health services, and I can't say enough about their staff. Victoria is an amazing personal trainer and person! She brings positive energy every where she she goes and truly makes you feel like you can do anything that you set your mind too...and with her guidance, knowledge, and support, YOU CAN! ~ Dawn Amerson Pugh, Charlotte, NC


I got the pleasure of taking an amazing yoga session with Victoria. It was quite the workout, and the facility was beautiful and well maintained. As soon as you walk in, friendly staff like Darla greet you and ready to help you #BeTheChange. I am so impressed with Flex5 that I signed up for a Tabata HIIT series with Mitchell. ~ David Olivarez, Charlotte, NC


I'm always a little hesitant trying out a new place, but from the moment I walked in for yoga I was met with such a warm welcome; everyone there is so nice!  I had mixed up the yoga schedule but Victoria was so great that I ended up staying for her aromatherapy seminar and loved it.  I had a great time, felt refreshed and learned a few things.  Now I can't wait to go back and try her yoga class! ~ Frankie Tellus, Charlotte, NC


I always have such an amazing experience with Victoria! I have done aromatherapy and yoga with her; both were something you have to experience for yourself. I always leave feeling more centered and energized. ~ Jacob Ivins, Charlotte, NC


I've been training with Mitch and Victoria for only two weeks and I am ALREADY seeing and feeling the results. I would recommend both of them for personal training and Victoria for Yoga.  I love how customizable their plans are and that they always have ME in mind when it comes to MY training. If I could give them 10 stars, I would. To top it all off, they are located in a brand new, state-of-the-art facility with private restrooms and showers. They will even do your grocery shopping for you! ~ Lukas Biebinger, Charlotte, NC


I've been working out with Victoria for 7 months now. Through her Ayurveda sessions , she helped me navigate through an very difficult time in my life. After that, I've worked out with her through personal training sessions and her Chakra yoga class every week.Victoria and the Flex5 family inspires  you to be great and truly stands behind the #bethechange movement. I'm so grateful to have found this fitness family and I highly recommend Flex5 to everyone! ~ Mercedes Gatt, Charlotte, NC


Victoria brings a new fresh yoga experience to Charlotte! Flex5 is a unique way to get out of the box and move towards a healthier life style! These guys are changing lives not just bodies! 🌟🌟Great new innovative way to think about a fit life! Victoria makes yoga fun and easy she helps push you to the next level! The whole staff is amazing and sincere about helping you live a healthier life. ~ Tracy Sanchez, Charlotte, NC


Flex5 is the best place I've ever worked out.  The trainers are really knowledgable and created a workout program to meet my personal fitness goals.  I also really like the diversity of the classes and how well they accommodate my schedule. I am feeling great in my own skin (and in my bikini) :) thanks to Flex5! ~ Tracy Lee, Charlotte, NC


Flex5 has amazing trainers, especially Mitchell. He's a great motivator and provides practical advice on how to start and maintain an healthy lifestyle with an upbeat attitude! I definitely recommend Flex5 for anyone who wants to #bethechange. ~ Kevin Ussery, Charlotte, NC





Tabata style of high intensity interval training (HIIT) was developed by  Japanese physician and researcher Dr. Izumi Tabata. It consists of a series of exercises performed in intervals of 20/10: 20 seconds of all out work followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated eight times for a total of 4 minutes per exercise. Research has shown that this type of interval training not only significantly boosts anaerobic fitness levels and burns serious calories during the workout, but can actually increase the amount of calories your body burns up to 24 hours after you've stopped. Who wouldn't like that?!

During this 10 week series, participants will be led through Tabata inclusive style workouts designed to increase core strength and shred fat. Each class utilizes High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and Tabata principles to maximize calorie burn and cardiovascular benefit in condensed, express classes that fit into your busy lifestyle.



Yoga teaches that the creative energy of the Universe is a feminine power called Shakti. Every woman is born with feminine grace and power. Every woman is a vessel of the Goddess energy. In a world that often denies or rejects feminine power, it is time to do the necessary work to reclaim the Shakti that lies within each of us—men and women alike. 

Goddess energy can come in many forms. Shakti may rush into your consciousness. Or she may rise within you like a peaceful sunrise that opens you to a new way of embracing life. Throughout the Goddess Yoga Series as you begin to reassemble yourself through her stories, images, songs, rituals, and mantras, the wounded places in your own psyche begin to heal and you realize that indeed you are a sacred form of the Goddess. Her powers are endless and her forms infinite. She wields every weapon necessary to defeat the demons of shame, guilt, betrayal, unworthiness, blame, victimhood, greed, arrogance, anger, separation—anything which limits you from being the full expression of your own divine, juicy and creative self.

If you haven’t encountered your own Goddess energy yet, watch for these signs that a Goddess is waiting to emerge from deep within.

  • A need to speak your truth
  • Impatience at the social injustices of the world
  • Desire to fall in love with your whole self
  • Sexual arousal and creative energy stirring within you
  • Vivid and emotional dreams
  • Dreams with water, fire, snakes, underworlds, lovers, and spiritS
  • Craving for internal and soulful time for yourself
  • When you hear the word “Goddess” something warms within you
  • Boredom with the status quo of things, both locally and globally
  • Feeling insulted by the superficial definitions of women’s beauty
  • Nonconformity is calling out to you
  • Tired of being a victim
  • Wanting empowerment
  • Knowing you’re here for a reason even if you cannot name it
  • Feeling stripped down, vulnerable and bare
  • Your inner voice is saying: “Listen and trust me!”
  • Discontent with the outer façade of your own deep interior
  • A desire to dance, sing, paint, or write
  • Nature is calling you
  • Yearning to express your Mothering instincts
  • Deep in your heart, you believe in Magic
  • Something inside you is bursting to be Free!

It is my passion and desire for every woman to step into her power and come into a circle of sisterhood to embrace and support each other. We need each other, we can help each other untie the knots of each other’s hearts.  As women we have tremendous courage and inner resourcefulness. Together in our true power, women can even stop wars. It is our sacred duty, as women, to call in the rise of collective power in service to each other and remember that united we can heal the world. Lets walk the path together and let the world know that every woman is a Goddess!
