What our clients say

  • I have been training with Kah Onn for over 3 months now and have been greatly enjoying the training progress! I have been getting stronger with each session and have seen great progress in my weight loss journey.

    Kah Onn has implemented a very sustainable training program for me while allowing me to see substantial results. He definitely takes a holistic approach to training clients and always keeps me motivated with easy progress targets.

    My training sessions have been engaging and interesting. I used to do circuit training and would get injured fairly often. I’m glad Kah Onn has designed a training program that is allowing me to meet my strength goals while staying injury free. I see great progress each week and it has been very encouraging!

    Would highly recommend this to anyone who is feeling stagnant with their fitness journey and looking to jumpstart it!

  • I've been training with Kah Onn from Thrive for almost 6 months now and am really happy with the progress so far.

    I love that Thrive is so focused on continued learning, you can tell they have trainers, who genuinely care, and put a lot of thought and consideration into their programs. Often I've asked Kah Onn why he has chosen certain exercises and am always impressed with his rationale. I appreciate the intentionality that goes into the program and how it aligns with my goals.

    Kah Onn focuses on progression but never at the expense of form or safety. I feel challenged, but also that I am in safe hands.
    Our training sessions are always fun too, we share an appreciation for bad jokes and good banter, which helps with the pain of regularly scheduled bulgarian split squats :)

    It's a journey, not a destination and I am happy to be on this journey with Kah Onn, Matt and the rest of the Thrive squad.

  • I trained with Kah Onn for almost 9 months with the goal of adding weight training to my fitness routine after hitting the age of 40. Before I signed up with Kah Onn / Thrive, I did multiple trial sessions with a few gyms. What I liked most about Kah Onn was that he really understood my goals and customized the exercise to that. Also, after his trial session, I didn't feel any kind of soreness even though it was an intense workout session.

    Overall, I had a very good experience with Kah Onn. He kept increasing the intensity / weight of workouts in a manner that stretched me, but also not cause any injury. He would always follow-up to check in, especially after a tough workout. It's quite easy to work with him, with good conversations and tips throughout the session as well.

    Highly recommended!
