Thrive Gym is welcoming 2021 with open arms, masks and continued heighented sanitization protocols. We take pride in our facility and we can’t thank you all enough for doing the same. Your efforts to keep Thrive Gym a safe socially distanced workout facility in 2020 has allowed our doors to remain open during this challenging year and for that we are extremely grateful. We look forward to greeting the New Year with a hope of health, allowing all members to crush individual fitness and wellness goals for 2021 and “Live in a Body That Feels Great”.

As we close on a year of uncertainty and heartache we look forward to the hope and safety 2021 will provide us all. Thrive Gym will continue to be a facility focusing on sanitary expectations so all members can drive their personal fitness and wellness goals to the next level! We couldn’t have made it through this year without all of you and the holiday season is a perfect time to tell you all just how much we appreciate your support and loyalty to Thrive Gym. Thank you for making this space everything we hoped it would be and so much more, Happy New Year!

SMOOTHIE OF THE MONTH: Strawberry Shortcake

Exercise of the Month: Front Dumbbell Raises

Front dumbbell raises primarily target the front of the shoulders, known as the anterior deltoid. This muscle is used in shoulder flexion. Front dumbbell raises also work the lateral (side) deltoid and the serratus anterior, along with the upper and lower trapezius, clavicular part of the pectoralis major, and biceps!

Grab a pair of dumbbells and try out this exercise to work your shoulders next time you are in the gym!
