What they say
"Not only have I worked out for many years, I have even worked as a personal trainer myself in the past. I thought I knew most everything there was to know about getting lean and putting on muscle.......until I spent some time training with Derek. He showed me some great new stuff that has already added a whole new element to my workout routine. Thanks D, looking forward to some more tough, informative sessions!"
Dave Lonkaric,Financial Planner
I have worked with Personal Trainers across the world and yet Derek stands out as one of the best I've ever known. His knowledge is incredibly impressive - there literally isn't a form of exercise about which he doesn't know - and his passion and enthusiasm are contagious. He listens to exactly what you want to achieve and develops a highly tailored program - to deliver real and rapid results. He even manages to make the pain and effort enjoyable!".
"Derek has shared with me his extensive knowledge of bodybuilding and powerlifting. Over the past year, my bench, squats and deadlifts have increased exponentially. What used to seem impossible, is now possible. Derek uses an exciting balance of old school weight training and dynamic modern movements to help sculpt his clients physique and bring out the best in every individual he works with."
Kia Turmann,Bartender & Musician
“When I started training with Thrive, I was tired of being out of shape and not having enough energy. I had never worked out before and was pretty intimidated at first. Fortunately, Derek really eased me comfortably into training and I quickly became more and more comfortable. Now I really look forward to my workouts and enjoy the friendly faces and sense the community the gym offers. I've been consistently dropping weight and becoming more mobile. Now when I go on Vacations I look forward to the group hikes and exploring.”
Sandie Wilson,Executive Assistant
"Derek really takes the time to educate you in what you are doing, what muscles are being worked on and why this is important and significant for your everyday life. He also checks in, making sure you are eating right, and taking care of yourself post workout. He really pushes you to your full potential. I feel very empowered when working with him. I leave each workout feeling strong, vibrant and of course sweaty!"

“I have always been active outdoors including being an avid runner. Occasionally I’d use the gym in my building but I found that I wasnt seeing any results for the time I spent on my weight workouts. I started working out with Derek in Oct 2012. I’ve gained lean muscle which I feel has helped with my running performance and has also made me more resistant to over-use injury. I’m also engaging muscle groups more appropriately in simple tasks like moving heavy furniture and boxes. Overall… its the best thing I’ve done for my fitness in a long time.”
