About Us

For almost a decade, Debbye Roman (Owner of Thrive STL – Personal Training & Coaching) has remained fiercely committed to one thing: creating a supportive and positive community where people can achieve a sustainable, healthy lifestyle.

The most important word in that last sentence? COMMUNITY.

What Sets Us Apart – Our Community

It’s at the heart of everything we do and it’s what sets us apart from other gyms, especially some of those big box chain gyms. Having worked in this industry for year, we’ve seen what works and, quite frankly, what doesn’t work for trainers and coaches and the clients they serve. What we found is that when people feel supported and welcomed into a community, it creates a sense of belonging. And this spirit of belonging reduces the gym intimidation factor and helps instill the confidence and reassurance of knowing you’re on the right track and you’ve got a whole team behind you who are 100% invested in your success.

We may be biased, but our professional trainers are the best in the business. And whether they’re working with you in person or during a virtual training session, they come to work every day prepared and ready to share their expertise with you.. We want to help you #Thrive. And, we know that looks different for every person. Which is why we speak beginner, elite athlete, and everything in between. So no matter where you are in your health and fitness journey and no matter what your personal goals may be — we’ve got you.
