Steve Sharkey

Online Personal Trainer & Lifestyle Coach

When you start taking care of number one (that’s you!) you are able to gain perspective and focus on making small consistent changes, that will lead to BIG results.

With each Thrive Fitness program you get my unlimited support. Unlike other cookie cutter approaches, I adapt and respond to each and every one of my members personally.

We all live a busy lifestyle, juggling family, careers and children. The most common reason I hear for not exercising is lack of time and falling into old habits. This is the precise reason I created these programs.

You CAN have it all. Being happy in your own skin, reaching your goals and feeling fit and fabulous is NOT a pipe dream… with the right tools, it WILL become your reality.

Inspiring stories of success

I’ve been fit and healthy for most of my life however, ‘Life & Work duties’ took over and before I knew it, I’d gained 5 kg’s, most of which settled around my stomach. I had to do something about this and decided to join Surge. For a while I was ‘doing my own thing’ but felt I wasn’t progressing. I then employed the PT services of Steve.

I’ve experienced monumental changes, both physically and the way that I feel. My energy for everyday activities has shot through the roof. Both my strength and stamina has increased, which is a bonus when it comes to playing ball with the kids.

The ‘tale of the tape’ and scales though have been the ‘icing on the cake’ for me; 16 kg’s loss in weight, 10% loss in body fat and a total of 14cm decrease across my body (10cm’s across my waist). Steve & I are looking forward to the next 6 months where we’ve agreed a new set of goals for me to conquer.

If I could give any advice to anyone who is considering Personal training – Try it once! You’ll know if your chosen instructor is the right one for you. And there’ll be no looking back. Many thanks Steve.

I’ve experienced monumental change

“My weight ballooned out of control and I realised that if I kept along this path my health would seriously be affected.

The usual negative feelings of being out of condition constantly remained with me for many months. I’d had enough. Then, just out of the blue, I made a conscious decision to take ‘action.’ Not only to lose weight but to become mentally and physically fitter.

I must admit, the journey from first meeting Steve, to now, has not always been plain sailing. I thought the ‘path’ would be easy – Join a gym and lose weight! On the contrary. Steve guided me through a process of creating new habits. Informed that an exercise regime would be a waste of time and money if I did not take care of other factors, such as Sleep, Stress, Nutrition & Hormone balance.

I firmly believe that if you are ‘armed with all the right tools’ you will achieve your desired goal. For me, exercise is like washing my face/ brushing my teeth – I just do it. Consistency is the key. And as a result. I’m less stressed, healthier for it and enjoying so much more in my life than I have in a long time.”

I have been working with @Stephen Sharkey for over a year now and am constantly amazed at the new workouts that he keeps pulling out of his hat. The newest workouts that he has drawn up for me are challenging and meets all of my requirements - being high intensity but also involving heavy weights - which I love.
I am also thankful that when I told Steve initially that I am not scared of heavy weight, he believed me, not many trainers did in the past.
I have been looking at his online training app that he is using and it is absolutely brilliant, it is almost as if he is there during every session, and in a way he is - virtually at least.
if you are a mature person who enjoys being fit and strong to go about your everyday life, Steve is the trainer for you.

I've been going to the gym since I was 14 on and off and over the years have been very up and down going through phases of really hammering the gym then not really going or going through the motions and not really giving it my full attention or always having an excuse to not go.

With having a very busy job and a young family I'd want to go to the gym but would find it hard to get the time to be as consistent as I wanted to be.

I knew I had to do something different to get out of this spiral of no focus. I needed an intent. I needed a plan to follow.

Along came Steve. He knew exactly what I wanted to achieve and set a plan of action.

Oh boy. The workouts he devised, instantly made my muscles ache in a great way like they had been really worked full and ached for a few days later which is what I want every time I leave the gym.

4 weeks into the program I'm gaining weight, strength, size and definition. And so far, with his guidance and techniques I've stayed injury free and feeling great.

Thank you Steve 🏋️‍♂️🏋️‍♂️🏋️‍♂️🏋️‍♂️🏋️‍♂️🏋️‍♂️🏋️‍♂️🏋️‍♂️🏋️‍♂️🏋️‍♂️
