Moving better = feeling better = happier = awesome

Personal Training

Get into the best shape of your life! Your workouts are the first piece of the puzzle. Work with a certified trainer one-on-one: we’ll assess your unique needs – current fitness, goals, and more. Then we’ll come up with a plan to get you to your goals the safest, fastest way with individualized attention.

Small Group Training

Unlock the power of group training: Work with a personal trainer and 3 to 5 other like-minded people, for support and encouragement. We love group training for so many reasons. But bottom line: it’s a great, economical way to get into the best shape of your life because you get more workout for less $$.


The third piece of the puzzle is your mindset and social support. It’s proven: People with strong social support get better results from their fitness regimens. That’s why we love group training! It’s also why we are building a members-only Thriving online community for advice, support, motivation, and that “extra” coaching (and bonus workouts too).

You are more than your muscles.

We specialize in total fitness programs.

Thrive Small Group Training Schedule

What is Small Group Training?

It’s a hybrid between 1-on-1 personal training and group ex. Several people (between 2 and 7) work out under the guidance of an experienced personal trainer, who offers motivation, form tips and modifies exercises to meet each participant’s unique needs.

The benefit of group training is the motivation factor: everyone works harder in a safe, supportive environment.

Sessions last about 45 minutes and include all components of fitness: mobility, strength, cardiovascular, metabolic training, flexibility, and more. Plus a lot of fun!

What is Country Heat Live?

It’s a super-fun country line dancing fitness class … and it’ll definitely work up a sweat! Set to popular country songs, an instructor will guide you through a total of 16 new dance steps, culminating in a fun “showdown” routine. Did we already say fun?

“I have been working with Wendy for 8 years, I have worked with her as a trainer, small group instructor, and in all the classes she has taught. Plus her online workouts and programs including her awesome reboot programs. I have also witnessed the transformation in her physique show clients at the gym. I think the one thing I love about Wendy is that she follows the science over the trends, and with a simple tweak, she turns a good workout into a great workout. She really does her research and her clients reap the rewards. Thanks Wendy! ”

“I love training with Melissa! Not only does she offer challenging, fun workouts, but she puts her time and knowledge into making sure each workout offers something, new tailored to my needs. I’ve never had the same workout twice, and have learned so many new fitness tips and routines … My reason for having a trainer is to have someone who is there to push me, challenge me, motivate me and inspire me. Melissa does all those things and so much more.”

“Not only does Melissa come up with amazing circuits that leave me “feel good sore” – she also knows how to deal with different injuries and sensitivities and can help people of all fitness levels. I have herniated disks in both my neck and back and Melissa always has a modification move to help me keep up the with class or in our personal training sessions … As a bonus she has a wonderful upbeat personality and is fun to work with.  She likes to make sessions fun and have a good laugh all while pushing you to keep going.”
