Can TFGU help me with weight loss, weight gain, strength and conditioning, etc?

Our program is effective, can be tailored to fit your specific needs, and, with the help of our Thrive Coaches, can be an asset in helping you achieve your goals.

If you are looking to kick-start your fitness journey or weight loss goals (or need that final boost you just can’t seem to achieve), take a look at our 6 Week Challenge.

Regardless of what your specific goals are, we recommend scheduling a free session (click the button below) with us so one of our Thrive Coaches can not only answer your questions, but SHOW you what they can do to help you. Hope to see you at TFGU!


I have back pain, knee pain, and I’m ____ years old.

While that’s not a question, we hear it all the time and we want you to know that we can help you too! We have clients in their 90s who are THRIVING with us. Some of our own coaches have had their own back stories that our program has helped improve greatly. We completely understand your concern and we want to prove ourselves to you, so check our testimonials page and then schedule a time to come in for a free session (button below) so you can experience for yourself how we can help you.

All our sessions are trainer-led, so the best way to see our availability is by checking the calendar under the Schedule tab.
