Thrive (v): to grow or develop well.
To prosper and flourish.

Our goal isn’t focused on how much weight you lose or how much muscle you gain. Our goal – no! - our dream - is to help you advance and thrive, by creating a supportive and inclusive space where you meet and nurture your best self.

Our Approach - it's all about fun

Ready? OK… let’s go! Our experienced trainers lead 45-minute group classes where they create a full-body workout like no other, targeting four main areas with each workout - upper and lower body, cardio and core. Each class is capped at 16 people, so the trainer can check your form to ensure optimal results and prevent injuries. Want more personal attention? We offer one-on-one training too! Let us know if you’re keen.

Thrive is a judgment-free zone. Our down-to-earth community is made up of all shapes, sizes and fitness levels where each member works towards their own goal at a level they’re comfy with.

But don’t take our word for it, why not just...

Our Space - a place for everything

Picture this: four indoor zones, each fully equipped with four exercises to target your upper or lower body, core, or give you that cardio boost. You move clockwise in each zone to cover four exercises, and after your fourth, you move to the next zone to mix it up! Don’t worry – all will be explained before the session, and our trainers are on hand to help. Add dramatic lighting and power tunes, and you’ll be motivated from Minute 1 all the way through to Minute 45. Want some sunshine and fresh air? Head outdoors to The Turf and push yourself a little harder.
