Personal Training

Personal training is about a relationship. A relationship focused on bringing you the results you want when it comes to your health and fitness goals. But it's more than that too – it's a relationship built around supporting and helping you to deal with the challenges you face on your journey to fitness and health.

At Thrive, we bring over 45 years of combined knowledge and experience to our roles as personal trainers. In most cases, when it comes to fitness and health, we've seen it or done it – from losing parents to chronic disease to being overweight and out of shape to competing in all manner of competitive events (cycling, triathlons, duathlons, adventure races, marathons, half-marathons, 10k's, 5K's, mountain biking and more….) to working with a huge variety of clients (from post-MVA patients and those with chronic and degenerative diseases to elite athletes) to having experienced stress, addiction and challenges to mental health in our families and personal situations, we've seen it or done it.

By no means do these experiences make us "experts" in these areas. But they do give us the perspective and understanding to be able to support you in your journey to become more fit as you encounter the "curveballs" in your own life. We will never just focus on the number on the scale or how toned your legs or your arms or your butt look or how many calories you've "burned," but instead will also help you realize the "big picture" so you can live your life with energy, vitality and on the terms you define, with much less risk of disease and degenerative change.

Personal training is usually done one-on-one but can also be done in small groups of up to 4 people at once (2-on-1, 3-on-1 and 4-on-1 scenarios are all possible).

Sessions can be scheduled for 30, 45 or 60 minutes and performed 1, 2, 3 or more times per week or less often according to your schedule, budget and comfort zone.

We begin with a no-cost, no-obligation consultation. This is done in person or by phone and allows us to get to know you, your goals and your challenges. It also allows us to discuss scheduling and how we can best help you work a fitness routine into your busy life. Once we agree on how we can best help you, your sessions begin. You will be asked to provide background on your personal and family health history as well as fill out a questionnaire looking at a wide variety of health areas from exercise to nutrition to any other health concerns we need to be aware of or that could impact your training in some way.

You will also be asked to complete a Waiver & PAR-Q (Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire), which is a standard screening tool used throughout the fitness industry.

From here, your journey continues.

We are confident that with OUR expertise, knowledge and support – combined with YOUR energy, drive and commitment, you WILL reach your goals.

We look forward to meeting you soon and helping you take that first step.....
