A qualified personal trainer since 2008, I've made it my mission to help people just like you get fit, feel more energised, motivated and healthy.

Whatever your age, interest or ability, I can help you get the results you want with bespoke fitness programmes built around you and your goals.


I offer a mobile PT service so we can train in your home or garden, in a local Hebden gym or via live online sessions. 

Get in touch - I'd love to chat.

Michel Glendinning - Thrive Fitness Mobile Personal Trainer



A qualified personal trainer since 2008, I’ve always been interested in sports and fitness - representing my county in athletics, running in the London Marathon and working as a ski instructor before training as a PT.


I love helping people of all abilities achieve their fitness goals, and my programmes are designed to help improve overall wellbeing, health and fitness - so you move better and feel better, too. Plus, as a big foodie, I firmly believe you can still enjoy the food you like - with a little help from effective exercising.


  My specialisms:  

running training, menopause fitness, functional strength, pre & post-natal exercise, fitness for sport including skiing, core strength & stability, balance & coordination, mobility & flexibility, kettlebells, TRX, circuits, plyometrics, HIIT workouts, GP exercise referral, training for older adults.

I don't believe in silly fads or generic one-size-fits-all workouts. Instead, I invest the time to really get to know you before we start training together. I offer a  free initial consultation  so I can learn about you, your goals and your lifestyle - and you about me, too.


Based on these learnings, I'll then create a bespoke training programme just for you. Containing a specially selected combination of cardio, resistance, core and flexibility training, I'll take you through it carefully, and explain how to do each exercise and its benefits.


To help keep you motivated, I'll also track your achievements and continuously update your programme, plus give you complimentary DIY session plans so you can do your programme by yourself at home.


  My aim is simple:  

To help you achieve your fitness goals safely and effectively, and keep you thriving for life.

I build bespoke fitness programmes around you, your goals and your experience. So whether you want to lose weight, tone up or get fit, they'll contain the most effective mix of cardio, resistance, core and flexibility training.


As a fully-certified pre & post-natal trainer, I  carefully plan personalised sessions that help you exercise safely and appropriately before, during and after your pregnancy.


A lifelong runner, I'm passionate about helping people start and improve their running. As well as creating plans for every distance, I can also help improve your technique, speed, strength and stability.


Getting married soon? I've helped lots of brides and grooms get into shape for their big day - and can help you lose weight, tone up and feel incredible. 


Whether you're menopausal or peri, my  specialist sessions are designed to regain lost muscle mass, increase bone density, lift mood to help get you fit for the menopause and improve your quality of life.


 Kettlebells can take your fitness to another level. Not just for strengthening and toning, they also blast fat, build core stability, improve balance and add variety.

  • Learn about your fitness goals

  • Create a bespoke programme for you
