    I joined Thrive Fitness over a year ago. I’ve had personal training with Lloyd and and group training with Kristin who are both amazing! I’ve kept up with the group training because I enjoy working with others. Kristin is wonderful at keeping the workouts challenging, fun and results-driven. She truly cares about her clients, and will listen to your needs. I’d highly recommend her and Thrive any day!
