"I would happily recommend Michel, having trained with her for over 5 years. She puts together high quality and varied training programmes, responding to my particular training needs and priorities. She is hugely knowledgeable and professional, and always well prepared, but able to adapt sessions when necessary. What doesn't change is the balanced training approach which focuses on quality of exercise, and ensures that you are always building core strength and fitness."
JOE S, FINANCE & INSURANCE DIRECTOR
"I love my sessions - Kizzie is brilliant, always varying the workout and knows my limits and equally how to get the best out of me. To be honest, I didn't think I would end up enjoying it as much as I do, and that's a credit to Kizzie."
NICOLA, WEBSITE DESIGNER
"I usually hate exercise so I can't fault Michael for his patience and ability to keep things fun while I began to build up my strength. He pushed me, but not so far that I never wanted to exercise again. I'd recommend Thrive to anyone."
FIONA, TEACHING MENTOR
"I've worked with Michel at Thrive Fitness for a number of years now. Michel is focused and knowledgeable. She worked with me after my heart problems and I am now no longer on any medication. She has indeed done a good job."
MICHAEL, RETIRED MANAGING DIRECTOR
"I wanted to drop a dress size before my wedding. Michel has been brilliant. Now, nine months later and with a week to the wedding, I’m many centimetres smaller all over, a size 8 at a push, and much stronger. Michel’s always on time, encouraging and crucially, very knowledgeable about fitness: of which muscles to activate and why, of how to get the most out of work outs."
CLARE H, JOURNALIST
"I started working with Michel to improve my fitness. After getting pregnant, she adjusted our sessions at each stage of my pregnancy and taught me more about the changes occurring in my body than any midwife. It meant I kept exercising throughout and was better prepared physically."
NADIA, HEAD OF ONLINE LEARNING
"Michel trained me for the London Marathon after I had some issues with injury last year. She spent time correcting my form thoroughly during our once a week training. This was supplemented by DIY strength session info as well as a weekly running plan. She completely shook up my training plan, focusing much more on quality than quantity of miles as well as building good form and strength. As a result, I arrived at the start line injury-free and not only ran a PB but felt strong throughout the race, even the last 6 miles! I also managed to run the second half of the marathon faster than the first, which I put down completely do the work she did with me on form and strength. I'm really happy with the results and working with Michel has really been a pleasure, I've felt very supported throughout!"
THEA, BUSINESS ANALYST
"Have had ten sessions with Kizzie and I’m starting feel fitter, stronger, and happier and possibly even looking better already. The intensity and variety of exercises are always good. Kizzie is very interesting and her approach is patient, flexible and adaptable. Kizzie’s music is awesome too, and the outdoor location and timings are very practical for me. Kizzie has adapted her training approach to lockdown really well, offering varied, tailored and safe training through video."
HARSH P, CLIMATE CHANGE TECHNOLOGIST
"Fantastic session in the park this morning. Michel worked me hard, kept me focused and motivated and made sure I did everything accurately which is so important in making sure you avoid injuries (and not always present in other PTs)."
