We’re open anytime from 5 AM to 8 PM Monday-Thursday, from 5 AM to 5 PM on Fridays, and from 8 AM to noon on Saturdays.
We start every session with a dynamic warm-up, which we call Movement Prep or Mobility. This is intended to prepare your body for a challenging workout. The main workout will consist of a mix of strength training (some traditional weight lifting), core exercises, and some high-intensity interval training.
Our strength and core portions usually consist of 15-minute circuits of 3-4 exercises which we perform in sequence for multiple rounds. Our high-intensity interval training is either timed (work/rest) or paced by each person’s heart rate. (work til xx%, rest til xx%)
We believe we provide the best overall workout there is. It is well-rounded and reasonable in length and difficulty. Rather than a spin class or yoga/pilates/barre class that is very specialized and typically leaves out crucial elements of whole-body fitness, our program covers all of the components in one session.
Our monthly rates vary depending on what program you choose — semi-private personal training or group training. All of our programs are “unlimited” sessions per week. There is no contract and no enrollment fee, but we do require you to get a heart rate monitor for the training program.
We offer the best value in the area with regards to the level of coaching per dollar. Please call or email us for current rates and to schedule a no-obligation training session.
You and your coach will develop a weekly exercise plan. Many people workout 2-3x per week, but you can come as often as you want.
You will always be in and out within 60 minutes, with the intense part of the workout lasting between 30 and 45 minutes. You and your coach decide on the exact duration of a session based on your fitness level and how you are feeling that day.
With our unique format, we can accommodate virtually any level, from very athletic to sedentary and deconditioned.
Normally we recommend three workouts a week at Thrive Fitness, with a range of 2-4 sessions/ week. Quality is more important than quantity. We carefully design each session to give you the most benefit in the least amount of time.
Our program is more customized to your level of fitness, with a focus on long term fitness – years instead of a few months. Bootcamps are typically harder on the joints and do not contain a real strength component that is best for improvements in body composition.
The Thrive program is closer to a personal training session, but with a small team working out together. While our workouts are intense, they are safer and more realistic to complete than your typical Crossfit session. We focus more on exercise technique versus speed or quantity of exercise.
