The Pilates studio is fantastic. As a beginner I was naturally anxious about a new class but was made to feel so welcome at Thrive & Annie was so supportive of the start of my Pilates journey. Thank you.


I've had 1:1 sessions and attended classes - can recommend both.


I lift a lot of weights and these girls looks after my muscles when they need it! Highly recommended! Knows their stuff!
