"I  waited 5 years before giving this a go. Now I've more energy and I feel fantastic. I can really see the benefit of online training. I no longer worry about my fitness. I used to be so stiff and tired all the time. I'm not dreading the next 'roundy' birthday, I'm going to look forward to the fact that for a "woman of that age" I'm doing all right."

- Isabella Coffey

"I feel the results on a daily basis, getting in and out of the car, carrying in the shopping bags, getting up and down off the floor to hug my dog, climbing stairs or walking a hill. I feel the strength already in my body and my energy levels are much better. I am also feeling much better in my clothes. My body shape is changing and that feels good too. 

I am feeling fantastic, I am really enjoying this new lease of life. I am 61 shortly and I feel excited."

- maggie mulpeter

"I now feel less anxious for the most part and my health has improved. I now feel so much happier and am so aware of where my mental health is at at any given time.

I acknowledge I sometimes fall back in to old habits however all the encouragement from Jessica and tribe get me back on track .I am probably one of Jessica’s older clients that being said I never in my wildest dreams thought I would workout consistently and lift weights."


"As a result of Jessica's material, I've completely "flipped" my thinking! Now I am being proactive - first thing every morning I do Thrive Time... 7 days a week. Here I focus in on my affirmation for the day. I write out my action steps and the positive spin off from that has ..... for the first time in my life..... helped me so much to focus on my achievements only and gain confidence in my self .... I now believe I CAN do this!! My self-belief has risen, my confidence has increased and each day I have my clear plan for the day, with my affirmation to bring to mind. It does really inspire me!''

"I’d never having done anything online at home before.

I'm feeling fitter, stronger physically and calmer in myself. The biggest change to my life has been a consistent start to my day with the workouts and the individual and group coaching has been wonderful."

- Rosemarie Casserly

"Working out from home with Jessica has completely changed my outlook to fitness. It is now part of my day and has become a habit, a good habit - before I did not make any time for fitness, now it’s scheduled in my day and if I don’t catch the live session being able to workout at a time that suits me is just perfect. Not having to pack a bag and travel to the studio makes fitting in home work outs so manageable. There’s huge strength in being part of a “tribe” of busy women, and who best to work out with than other women? all of whom have the same life challenges. For the first time in years, I am feeling fitter - I am feeling stronger - I have more energy and I generally just feel better about myself."

- Jacinta Dalton

"I'm someone who struggled to commit to gyms or other classes regularly – I would attack it like a demon for a month or two but if I’d miss a few sessions I would find it impossible to restart.  Thrive Coaching is the only fitness program I’ve ever stuck at long term and that is because its simple to start and it does not take too long out of the day.  Also the regular check ins with Jessica and the support from the group generally keep me accountable. "

- ann roddy

"I couldn’t believe the difference in just three weeks, I noticed I had lost so much weight off my shoulders, which was due to gradually increasing my weights and I was so much fitter. 

I have seen such a change in my body! I have toned up, I can now see my waist and I know I will shift the rest of the belly fat soon. 

I am a breast cancer survivor and I know how important it is to stay fit and healthy, for my family, for me and most importantly for my grandson Charlie.  I am delighted I found Jessica.  

Everyone needs Jessica in their lives!"


'' I have found it easy to cut back on my treats/wine/junk because I actually find I don't crave them as much.
I am learning to journal (a huge struggle at the start) and seeing the huge benefits of having focus back in my days.
I have lost weight but have no clue how much ... my clothes are fitting better and I'm feeling more confident in my own skin. I have attended some marvellous and inspiring online workshops, coffee mornings, live chats that have both inspired AND challenged me.'..ALL OF THIS IN MY OWN HOME. I would never be able to access so much learning, in such an easy way if it wasn't for this group.''

- margaret mc cluseky

"It's become second nature now to get the session done, regardless of how busy and the time of day. I have found though it's so much easier to get a morning session done and cross it off the to do list than to have it hang over you for the day. I have gotten rid of some of the bulky exercise machines that I had gathering dust and dug out my step and weights.

My fitness levels have come right back. My core has really strengthened and I have finally got some muscle tone in my abdomen, badly needed after 2 Cesarean sections. I have a waist!! My sleeping Is way better now. I notice muscle tone on my upper arms and my clothes finally fit me better again. I was even able to wear a pair of jeans I have had in the wardrobe that I have owned for the last 20 years. My energy levels have improved and the most important thing is that I mentally feel better knowing I took some time out of a busy day to do something for just me. "


"I now workout 3-4 times a week at 6am and feel so much fitter and stronger. I've lost over a stone naturally.

I better understand my feelings.  I've become more calm and recognise when I need a break. 

I'm still working on my inner voice to be more forgiven to myself and more kind to myself. Just taking them baby steps to be put me first. 

I now have a better bed time and morning routine and priorities my sleep. I choose healthier food choices and I've stopped drinking alcohol. I love going out and just be me without alcohol. The biggest positive change has been to finally put me first and work on improving myself."

- stephanie finnegan

"First of all, I actually feel so much more fit and happy in my body. I feel like I’m getting stronger, I actually feel my arms are less flabby looking (yes, the bingo wings are getting addressed). I feel like the post workout pain is much lessened. I could never do a press up and now I can do several in a row. In fact I feel more fit now than I was 10 years ago.

The big changes I have made include really trying to commit to three day a week workouts. Acknowledging that I am a comfort eater, and asking myself “what do you really need” rather than diving into the crisps. Another big change I made is trying to work on my mindset and be 'real' with myself.''

- marguerite fallon

"Over time I started doing 3 workouts a week, journaling, eating healthy and following her tips etc. It’s been life changing all I have overcome in the space of a year and a half. I can deal with life’s challenges so much better. I’m a happier person and love the new me from the inside. Working out for me, creates in my opinion, a really joyful experience, healthy mind healthy body. I no longer use a weighing scale, as long as I feel fit and healthy that’s all that matters. "

- trish costello

I'm consistently walking & working out. Am also drinking two litres of water nearly everyday which I never did previously. These two changes alone are having a very positive impact on me.

- mary breslin

"Since joining Thrive Coaching and with Jessica's guidance, the results to my overall fitness, health and well-being have been amazing. I have lost inches and gone down a dress size, I fit into some of my old clothes again, I'm more energetic and positive and love being part of a group of like-minded people, which helps to keep me motivated and challenged. I look forward to doing the online workouts, the  check-ins and feel amazing (especially on Fridays) having reached my weekly targets."

- escriva hannon

I LOVE being a part of this amazing online community. I can safely say that I never thought I would put the words ‘online’ and ‘pleasure’ in the same sentence. Doing the classes at home is really convenient and being able to do them live, is, for me, really
important in terms of accountability. Weekly check-ins with Jessica and other group members along with the different social ‘outings’ have really made me feel like part of a community...
I have a plan, with goals and Jessica supplies the tools, support, and encouragement to keep it up. My fitness levels have improved enormously- I don’t get out of breath as quickly and I’m sleeping better and less tired than I was. "

- claire o'connell

"So far the results are, better mental health and self belief and a more positive mindset each day. I am feeling better about myself because I am taking action and working with Jessica and the Inspire tribe.
Before I just wanted to lose weight - now I prefer to think of it as helping my body become stronger each day by doing the workouts, water and positive mindset."

- rosie keane

"Physically , my body is more toned and I don't feel sluggish and bloated. My clothes are fitting better too which is a great result.
My big results are my mental health is much better, I feel lighter and my body has toned up. I have come a very long way and this is down to the routine which I have put in place since joining Thrive Coaching'. Finally, the way I keep focus is through regular coaching calls with Jessica, the motivational video check ins which are posted on our members group and motivation and from other members. It's always great to tune into the post workout feeling and remember how good it is, this is a great motivator to keep focused."

- rosaleen carr

"Now I'm feeling so much fitter. So happy I can do all the exercises I did before I had my daughter. I have so much more energy.
My clothes are fitting better and I'm starting to wear some of the "smaller/tighter/fitted" clothes that have been sitting in the wardrobe for years. Fitting into a pair of jeans that were too tight before is an amazing feeling!
I love that my daughter sees me doing workouts as a normal part of our day - being a positive role model for her is the most important job I'll ever have.
The group accountability sessions and Facebook group have really helped me as I feel part of a community and don't feel as isolated anymore."

- louise durcan

"Once I got started I just loved the sessions and the feel good factor afterwards.
I find having to be accountable to someone works for me. I am now fully committed so much so that I missed the workouts when we took a break at Easter.
Since joining I have lost 7lbs with little effort and most importantly have kept it off. I would have been an no carb person and am amazed that I can eat the foods I eat and maintain.
I'm now full of energy every day, going to bed earlier with a book. "

- nora queeney

"Before Thrive Coaching, I was overeating just for comfort and distraction ,with no exercise routine. I had a good talking to myself. The weight was going in the wrong direction and I was comfort eating.
After just the first month with Jessica I really felt a difference: I had more energy , fitted better in my clothes and people noticed I was trimmer. The biggest change for me was that I now have my walks / workouts built into my schedule. I feel so good when it comes to Friday and I have completed my workouts.
Above anything else my mental health has improved.  Before I started Thrive Coaching, and got into my routine , I honestly have to say I was not feeling so good and this was compounded by the weight gain. I very quickly found my moods changed, my energy levels improved immensely, and I had a daily goal that was achievable. I got great satisfaction from completing those goals. "

- eavan o'neill

"The two things that make me feel good are workouts 1st thing in the morning along with fresh air, which I find great for the head.
I have maintained my weight since earlier in the year, my fitness from March to now is gone from a 5 to 9!
I've been working out with Jessica for the last 12 years, and it's one of the major constants in my life. I have ups and downs of course but I LOVE how it makes me feel afterwards.
I love online, I can now work out at the times that suit ME!"

- eimear killian

"Some days the workouts even seemed easy and on Jessica’s advice I started to really enjoy the workouts. I now realise that the workouts enhance my mood as well as my energy levels. I continue to lose inches and pounds. I am so grateful to Jessica for her continued commitment to training women in Thrive Coaching. Also joining weekly coaching calls gives an added dimension of support from the Tribe. 

Thanks Jessica."

- paula o'connor

"Getting back into the routine really helped me. I have so much energy, it's unreal! The workout first thing in the morning and a walk at lunchtime are great energy boosters. I am just itching to do another workout. I feel more balanced and relaxed and stopped worrying about things I can't control (like the pandemic). And those inches keep dropping slowly but surely which gives me even more motivation!”

- janne luessing

"My name is Joanna Fitzpatrick and I have been with Jessica for 5 years.

Thrive Coaching has changed my eating habits, exercise ability and attitude forever in such a positive way."

- joanna fitzpatrick

"I feel so much fitter both physically and mentally.

Working out has become a part of my everyday life. I don't feel it's a chore at all.

The support I get from the whole team at Thrive is what keeps me going.

Previously I would have great intentions but the business of life would take over. I have since learned to prioritise my workouts, check ins, chats first, and everything else will fall in place."

- gillian shaw

"My results have mainly been a feeling of strength, both physical and mental. My clothes fit better which is always a plus and one big achievement is the fact that I can now do full pushups. This is big for me as I had never been able to do them before and it’s one move that I had been told I’d probably never do again after my double mastectomy. But most importantly I am feeling mentally more resilient, more self-aware and assured and so much less anxious than I have for the past few years. "

- ceara belviso

"I just want to prepare my body for the next decade so thank God for finding Jessica

The results I have achieved are many, including feeling good in myself, doing almost all of what is recommended and staying positive and away from the weighing scales.

I now feel happier in my clothes!"
