What is Thrive?

Most other programmes give you either nutrition or fitness coaching. If you do well, you’ll have some positive new eating or exercise habits as a result…but perhaps not both. At the Y, we care about your health and wellbeing beyond just the physical. THRIVE will take you on a deep dive of your unique health needs, as well as support you to understand your natural strengths and how to make the most of them.

More than just the body

THRIVE is not just about the body – but also the mind, combining scienfically backed coaching techniques and experienced coaches to help you get out of your own way. We are each unique, with bodies as many and varied as our goals, thats why we want you to THRIVE.

State of the art Shae Fit app

Being part of THRIVE, also means meeting the worlds most personalised and advanced health & fitness app!

Shae is an interactive virtual health assistant that literally manages your daily health choices – what to eat, when to move, how to anticipate and beat stress and even when best to sleep.

Our team of Shae endorsed coaches are continually seeing how people are improving their digestion, pain, concentration, sleep, disease symptoms and stress, often at the same time as losing weight and getting fitter. The unique combination of Shae, alongside your Thrive coach and the Y gym, will support you to discover your unique recipe to Thrive! Shae manages all your health needs and interacts with you in a simple, personalised and almost effortless way to improve your health habits and live in your best health, long term.

My name was put forward to do a challenge of sorts with my work colleagues over 12 weeks. Being in a group environment, with peers surrounding me with the same or similar goal and my natural competitive nature I really enjoyed being in this space.

I think the best things that Dr Nick and Peta gave me during my time with them is giving me a safe space to try new things, sharing knowledge that was personalised to me, actually listening to me and acknowledging my fears and struggles and giving feedback specific to my journey.

One of my favourite sayings from Dr Nick was “at this time” meaning it will not be forever and things will adapt and change as your body, mind and soul evolve with it. I am truly grateful for the experience, I feel more confident, more assured in who I am and what my mind and body can do.
