I’m so excited to let you know that the reopening of Thrive Wellness is getting close!

“How close?” you ask. Well, I don’t know exactly…but we have our *fingers crossed* that it will be Friday, May 15th or very soon thereafter.

We're ready to go and waiting for the A-OK. Our county leaders have submitted an application and plan to the Governor’s office to begin reopening local businesses considered “Phase One,” which would include Thrive Wellness. Phase One reopening could begin on May 15th, if approved.

We haven't received any further information regarding what specific guidelines we will be required to follow, but I am confident that we can mee...

According to Gov. Brown's news conference today, it sounds promising that Thrive Wellness will be able to re-open on May 15th. We are so excited to be able to see our members and help them to be as healthy as possible! We've miss y'all!

There will be social distancing and disinfecting requirements. We're so glad that our Thrive members are excellent at disinfecting the equipment after use anyway.

Of course, for our members who are high-risk and may not feel comfortable coming in just yet, we understand. As previously stated, we're offering suspensions at no cost for the time we've been closed.

Your support is so appreciated! Each active member helps us to weather this corona-storm and be ...

You know the saying "No news is good news"? Well, sometimes no news is just...no news! We've had several inquires about when will we be able to re-open. What's our projection or best guess? I have no idea! We are not given any information other than what's available through the media and the Oregon Health Authority. I have written to our state representatives and governor but have nothing to report. Trust me, when I do, I'll let you know! ;)

In the meantime, we're busy putting together our a-MAY-zing workout that will be released on Friday, May 1st. I can assure you that we are professional trainers but very amateur videographers! But I know you'll get a good workout even with our goofy recor...

Just because we had to temporarily close Thrive Wellness, that doesn't mean you need to stop exercising. It's even more important now! The Thrive personal trainers are working on a 'Quarantine-friendly" April workout program. By Wednesday afternoon, we will put a link to the video here and post it on Facebook, too.

This workout is in addition to the Fitness on Demand online classes. If you haven't signed up yet, click here and send a message requesting an invitation. You'll receive a reply via email to get started. We are offering this to our members and to the community at large. No cost, no obligation, no strings attached, no April fooling!

Make sure to like us on Facebook to get updates on ...

Happy Friday! I hope you all are doing well and managing to stay active under the circumstances. Even though it isn't our choice to temporarily close, let's all make the best of the situation.

First, regarding the temporary closure, we do not have any updated info regarding how long it will last. Rest assured, we will open the minute we are allowed to safely do so.

In the meantime, we are offering use of Fitness on Demand online classes for you to use in the comfort of your own 'sheltered' home! To sign up, click here to send me a message requesting an invitation. Within 24 hours, you'll receive an email with a link and instructions on registering. If you don't see the email, check your spam f...

We are sad to announce that we are temporarily closed until further notice due to the coronavirus. Even though we know we're the cleanest gym around, the state has mandated the closure of all gyms and I don't think they're going to make an exception for us (although they should)! ;)

This also means we are required to close access to our 24-hour service. We were hoping to be able to allow our members continued access as long as we have good cleaning protocol and social distancing guidelines. Not so. (If you purchased a 24-hour key fob on my mistaken belief that you could use it during the corona-chaos, you can return it for a refund, if you don't want to keep it.)

In the meantime, click here to...
