Meet The Face Behind Fleming Fitness
I’m Patrick Fleming, the proud owner of Fleming Fitness.
I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.
I was an athlete my whole life and had a passion for health and fitness, so I chose to study Kinesiology as my major at University.
After graduating and playing professional football, I thought my future was in athletics and training athletes, which it was when I started my company in 2007. However, the direction of the business shifted to a different clientele the following year, after a particular incident.
A severely injured lady had contacted me to ask if I could help her. She had crushed her ankle, and her physiotherapist told me that she would never walk in-tandem downstairs again. I knew I could help her as I believe that you can always improve, no matter what the current condition is.
I worked hard with this lady twice per week for a year. One day when I arrived at her home for our session, she was smiling and extra happy. She said, “Patrick, I need to show you something.” Then it happened. She walked down the stairs, in-tandem for the first time since her accident. It made my day, week, and month and to this day, I still remember the elation and enthusiasm that it aroused in her.
I will never forget that moment, as it was that day that I decided to focus on rehabilitation. While training athletes to reach the top of their sport is rewarding, nothing is more satisfying than helping injured individuals recover from serious injuries. Twelve years on, my focus hasn’t wavered.
I enjoy empowering people to get their lives back on track after a major setback, and I don't believe in pushing through pain, but modify the movement, and I maintain a never say never attitude.
I believe what sets me apart from the others is my commitment, experience, and honesty. Clients trust me to deliver, and I attribute my success in providing a high level of customer service and achieving results.
When I am not helping to rehabilitate clients, I’m a family man and love spending time with my wife and two kids. I get involved in their sports, coaching, and I still play touch football to keep fit.
I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
