BLACK LIVES MATTER

In light of recent events, we have been reflecting on our own practises and looking at what Alex Hart KAIZEN can do to support underrepresented people within our communities. Alex Hart KAIZEN stands with #BlackLivesMatter and it is our mission to continue to be part of the change.

The events which unfolded around the Black Lives Matter campaign, it gave us time to stop and reflect on where we may have fallen short or failed to represent BAME individuals. 

Alex Hart KAIZEN as a brand has always strived for inclusivity & diversity, but regrouped, and collectively highlighted areas where we can do more.

It is our mission and core values to empower individuals, but this must extend to all BAME customers, colleagues so the message we spread is love, compassion and being inclusive to every member of our community, no matter what the colour is of their skin, gender or disability. We will do more!

Our Pledge to you.

We reject tokenism. We will ensure BAME are represented for roles that arise in our business which will include people of every gender and sexuality. We will ensure all our channels – social, YouTube and website will be inclusive of people of every colour, gender, disability or sexuality.

Our Commitments to you.

We will do more for the BAME community. We will stand against racism, inequality and discrimination of every kind.

We will redress racial equality and diversity in our work-place.

Our promise to you is to be more transparent and accountable for our actions and strive to relook at any measures, and how we can improve them on a six monthly basis.

However, we are always learning. As a KAIZEN member, you can help us improve our working practises and our commitment to you. We would love to hear from you @AlexHartKAIZEN or email us at admin@alexhartkaizen.com

COVID-19 - 20 March 2020

As the global spread of COVID-19 has come to affect us all, we are reminded of the power of family - of love, support and the instinctive need to care for one another. Today, that need could not be greater, and as we pray for an end to this crisis, our hearts go out not only to those suffering with the virus, but also the heroic NHS, care workers, and those on the front line not only fighting it but being of service to us through it.


As we continue to monitor the situation closely, kindly note that whilst our academy’s may be subject to closure, we will continue with your training via Zoom.Us and with our Virtual 360° Programme. Zoom.us can be downloaded from the app store to a tablet or phone and link to your TV. 


Virtual 360° brings a weekly timetable full of daily online classes. Dinky Dudes & Mini Mindfulness for age 3+. Les Mills Fitness for the whole family, Karate & Kickboxing for all levels. Our aim is to keep your mind focused and your body fit as we are poised with the next directive from our Government. We will continue to grade over the Zoom.US app and this is thanks to an excellent team. This fight requires all of our care and participation, and as a people-first business, the health and welfare of our people is paramount.


Whilst we may take a step back from each other in person today, know that we look forward to holding each other even closer in the future. From our family to yours, please stay safe – we will beat this together!
