“I have been training with Thrive Method for nearly two years beginning when he was a trainer at Equinox. From my first session he was attentive, helpful, and prepared. In the more than 100 sessions I have had with him he has coached and guided me to better overall fitness including diet, mobility/flexibility, and strength.
Each individual session is customized to what I need that particular week or day based on what else I have done that week and how I am feeling. Additionally he periodically assesses what would be best to focus on for a period of time such as several weeks. Sometimes that has been primarily mobility issues that not only improve my flexibility but also lead to me being able to increase weight in strength exercises. Though he is attentive to how I am experiencing exercises and will lower or increase weights as indicated, he also pushes me to work harder or longer than I would if I were calling the shots. This is part of effective coaching or training as I know when I work out by myself at a gym I give up too easily and then wonder why I don’t experience noticeable improvements.
Besides being a great trainer and athlete himself, Mathieu is a great person. He is thoughtful, funny, present, and giving. He does everything he can to accommodate changes in scheduling and emerging needs. I would definitely recommend Mathieu as a personal trainer to anyone looking to improve their health, fitness, and/or athletic abilities.”
