I joined Thrive after trying out their 28 day experience.I absolutely love it, and its certainly reignited my love of exercise. I’ve been a member of various gyms over the years but Thrive works so much better for me. The team (and the members) are... so welcoming and friendly, and their coaching and support has helped me step out of my comfort zone, take on challenges I would have otherwise avoided, and I’m already seeing great results. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Thrive to someone considering membership.read more

A gym like no other. The small group PT sessions are perfect, the coaches are great, the equipment/facilities are modern and the level of support is unrivalled - I couldn't ask for more from a gym. I already have and will continue to recommend... Thrive to friends and family!read more

As I walked into the Thrive gym today, I was met with a round of applause and given a Thrive 100 T shirt - I have now made it to 100 sessions at Thrive! With my daughter starting school, juggling work and at times lacking motivation, I really... didn’t think I would be able to commit time to exercise, but with Thrive it’s been possible. A few highlights for me:- The timing of the classes is great, suiting lots of different lifestyles.- The facilities are lovely - always clean, and tidy and the equipment still feels brand new.- The members are so welcoming; you can arrive at sessions confident there will be friendly faces to chat to.- The team of coaches are just brilliant - so supportive and knowledgable. They are aware of everyone’s individual goals and are able to provide a really safe space (physically and emotionally) to exercise.- I would 100% recommend!!read more

Only been going to Thrive for a month or so, and I can't fault anything. There's no more than six to a session which means the trainers have time to dedicate to everybody even if a class is full. Everyone is very friendly, approachable and you're... made to feel welcome from the off. I look forward to going to each session. Brilliant!!read more

Thrive is probably the best gym I’ve ever come across! Having a history as a personal trainer myself I found it hard at first to justify paying for personal training and classes when I didn’t actually need it, but I was desperate to find a quiet gym... as I was fed up of busy commercial gyms and never being able to get a good workout done because it was so busy. I did the 28 day intro and it completely reignited my love for fitness.The trainers here actually know what they’re doing and all clearly love what they do. They are motivating, friendly and knowledgeable and coming to these classes was always fun, it never felt like a chore. Even though classes were of mixed ability, everyone was catered for and I always left feeling like I’d had a great workout. They push you to do exercises you wouldn’t usually, while also making you feel comfortable and finding adaptations if needed.Even all the other members were wonderful and friendly, I never felt any of the judgment or intimidation that’s so common in other gyms.I was sceptical at first, as I like working out on my own but I absolutely love the concept of this gym. even though I only went for a month, I noticed a huge difference in my motivation and fitness and my passion for fitness has been at a high since I left. Unfortunately I’m in the middle of trying to move, otherwise I would love to go back.I kept forgetting to leave this review but I absolutely had to even though it’s a bit late. You guys are great and I wish you so much success!-grace xread more

Getting straight to the point, the experience with Thrive Gyms is exceptional. Vicky, Jon & the team are amazing, and always willing to spend time discussing your goals and offering advice on how to achieve them. Everyone is really friendly and make... you feel included as well.I've been going for 6 weeks now, and am already feeling the benefit of regular exercise. The small group PT format ensures you're always getting the most out of every session. I would 100% recommend them.read more

I would like to thank Thrive gym for the help I have received from all the staff in my bid to get back to a better level of fitness. This meant they had to adapt some of the routines to enable me to be able to complete the course. Nothing was too... much trouble and I feel I have improved both strength and balance. It all takes place in a friendly environment. A great experience all round.read more

I have been training at Thrive for 9 months. It is the best gym I’ve ever used. I have made great progress in terms of my strength and general fitness and I find the structure really supports my motivation.I love that all the sessions are coached... and the coaching team are all really supportive and knowledgeable and can make adaptations for any physical challenges that any of us have. You can get extra support and advice from your personal coach at any time to ensure you are making progress towards your own goals.I really enjoy the camaraderie and support of the small group personal training structure. Everyone who trains at Thrive is really welcoming, friendly and supportive. You should come and give it a try!read more

I joined Thrive Gyms Colchester at the end of January and I haven't looked back since. The team are amazing and really welcoming, and it's really nice to be able to work out with others without feeling overwhelmed. Despite the fact I've been... struggling with a knee injury I have been able to keep going as the team have made the necessary adjustments so I can keep up my strength training without overloading my knee. As a formerly non gym goer this has been a complete find, and a real joy! Thank you team Thrive!read more

I have been a member at thrive for a year now and I haven’t looked back. At other gyms I had always steered away from weights as I had never been given good advice. At thrive the coaches are full of knowledge and attentive and want to see the... results as much as you, which is so encouraging. I manage to fit it around my busy lifestyle by attending the early morning sessions, it gets you off to such a good start, It is just part of my routine now. I would recommend Thrive to anyone wanting to join a quality, safe inspiring gym who wants to see results.read more

If you want a place that feels like you belong from day one, with coaches that you feel super comfortable with, and a light hearted but totally expert approach, then Thrive Gym is for you.Easy location and parking, fresh, bright, super modern gym... with top of the range equipment. The concept is different to anything else…… basically PT sessions shared with a few others (no more than 6 at its fullest but usually just 2 or 3 others) and a commitment of 8 or 12 sessions (or more maybe) as part of your subscription PLUS unlimited group classes when they are on. It’s not cheap but when you compare it to actually having that number of PT sessions, it really is cost effective.It’s all about strength training, not crazy HIIT Classes or Bootcamp sort of things, so it will make you leaner, stronger and fitter and not damage you like you can do if left to your own devices.I have always hated using equipment in the gym as can never remember what to do, get bored or don’t work as hard as you could, but at Throve you bypass all these familiar issues.I can absolutely recommend Thrive and think all the instructors are really great!read more

Thrive opened at a time when I was really struggling to find the right environment to exercise, but after an initial visit I immediately knew that this was the gym that would help to rediscover my motivation.The PT sessions are varied and... carefully devised with the coaches helping you focus on your individual technique, whilst the conditioning and cardio classes offer different, but equally rewarding challenges. The combination of the different sessions quickly produce results, with the coaches also available to discuss your own individual targets and help you achieve your goals, offering advice from both a training and nutritional perspective.Aside from the excellent facilities that Thrive offer, Jon & Vicky have also created a very unique inclusive & fun atmosphere where everyone is made welcome by the coaches and fellow members.Quite simply joining Thrive is honestly one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and I now feel as fit and as healthy as I have ever been, so thank you team Thrive 👏👏👏read more

Absolutely love this place, it’s like my second home. I could find many words to describe the service and the experiences I’ve had so far from Vicky, Jon and all the coaches but I believe you have to just come in and see it for yourself. Thrive is... not just another Gym!! I get coached in every session I do, I get pushed and motivated every time I feel like I can’t do anymore. The support I get is amazing and very specific in order to achieve my goals. There is no pressure at all. I work at my own pace and everyone is so like minded. All I have to say is thank you Thrive Team for being so exceptional.read more

The coaches & other members are so friendly - like one big family.Thrive is unique - personal training sessions in small groups combined... with various classes cardio/body conditioning /yoga - all easily booked on the app.The PT coaches are just great! Giving me the confidence, motivation & encouragement needed. Initially the sessions felt tough but incredibly enjoyable at the same time. I am now a convert & feeling so much stronger in body & mind.read more

I would highly recommend this new gym. A total different ethos from regular gyms, friendly, welcoming and focused on each individual. The small group pt sessions and classes keep you engaged and are such fun that the time flies. Every pt coach is on... hand to help you achieve whatever your goals are. They are very approachable and always happy to chat about any concerns or advise you may need. The gym itself is full of state of the art equipment and every element has been thought of. The showers and changing rooms are beautiful with top of the range hair driers and hair straighteners which all help if you need to get ready post workout. Having trained at this gym since it opened I have never regretted my decision to join and have seen great results in a short space of time. It’s definitely my happy place!read more
