Lead by example


  • Tricia thanks for all your expertise and encouragement. I have been working out for over 35 years with private trainers and you are truly tops in the field. You are knowledgeable, persistent and lots of fun to work with!

  • I have been a runner all my life and have always been told that I have great form, but I knew that my balance wasn’t great and I could improve my core and overall stability. I wasn’t exactly sure what specific exercises I should do to target my issues.
    After  just one online session with Tricia via FaceTime, she was able to immediately identify my weaknesses and tailor a specific circuit of exercises to address and strengthen them. I diligently did the exercises 2-3 x per week, in addition to my normal training (7-9 sessions per week), and after  just 2 months, my 5km time has dropped by more than 30 secs from 18:02 to sub 17:30, despite no other changes to my diet or training regime.
    I fully attribute this improvement to Tricia’s guidance – I feel stronger when I run and after strengthening my weaker areas, I can go faster for longer.
    There is still more work to be done, but with Tricia’s continued advice, I am looking forward to lowering my 5km time further and getting back to  a sub 37 min 10km.
    Thank you Tricia!!!

  • Tricia O’Hara is an elite trainer – but she is so much more. Her motivation, strength, and wisdom are contagious. Because of her, my flexibility and muscle core are stronger – both on the outside and in.

  • Met Tricia some years ago, originally for fitness lessons. After a while we kept speaking more and more about running which i had done early on my life somewhat professional yet had neglected last decade. Through our lengthy talks, getting to know Tricia better including her iron will, discipline and professional level of understanding of sport as well as the ‘science of human body and running’, she got me interested again. 
    With Tricia’s inspiration and motivation I started running more frequently and shortly started to plan my first training races. My first Semi-Marathon was last year and she coached my as well through race strategy and inside on ‘the first race’. Thanks to Tricia I enjoyed the race very much and signed up for the next Semi-marathon in April 2015 in Nice, France which I was running together with Tricia. Running up to the race Tricia was advising me frequently on my training schedule, strength exercise,  as well as ample issues with beginner pains/injuries and how to professionally overcome such. Before race day, strategy been set and we had an amazing run together, enjoyable and a new PB had been set.
    I then focused with Tricia in-depth help on my training for my Berlin Marathon 2015 debut. The spring training went well. during summer training I was elevating to new levels, which I did not believe I would be able to achieve. With Tricia’s endless motivation I was sticking to my training plan over many months. Despite occasionally being in different countries Tricia had been assisting me on an ongoing basis. Unfortunately I injured myself in my final month running up to the Marathon and after careful consideration and discussion we agreed that it would be wiser to postpone my Marathon debut. I was out of run-practice for about 4 months, a big blow and a sizable disappointment. 
    With constant discussions, training suggestions, support on fixing my injury, recommendations on alternative sports I somewhat stayed motivated and started again gentle running.
    Under Tricias close watch and advise I re-entered running. First weeks were tough, I was demotivated, my heart was not truly in it any more, almost lost the fun in running. Tricia however did not let go. After weeks and weeks of tedious and painful training I have stepped up the practice last months and just run my 3rd Semi Marathon, sticking to our plan and the race was an amazing success and pure enjoyment. Next race in 3 weeks, another Semi Marathon 40 days thereafter and then I will be entering my training for the Berlin-Marathon 2016, which I will race jointly with Tricia.
    It is not just the training which Tricia is assisting with, it is her professionalism, leading by example, her thrive, drive and amazing personality which got me to where I am at today. 
    I got to love running with Tricia’s dedication and help, I almost lost it…..I am back, I am loving every step of it, every meter, kilometer, every race!
    Thank you Tricia for all your great help, support and wisdom along the way!

    Growing up I was fortunate to be able to eat what I wanted and maintain my weight but after 3 kids I found the weight did not come off so easily. Fed up, I decided to do something about it. Unfortunately, as much as I tried, my motivation wasn’t there. It wasn’t until I met Tricia at my Villa in the S. of France did I start to see Real Results! To begin with, she asked me if I had any areas of chronic pain or tension, then she asked what my goals were.I explained what I was looking for and from that she designed a workout to help me achieve this.At first, even the simplest exercise seemed difficult. But after training with her 6 days a week, I am now able to do full push-ups and abdominals for up to 45 minutes, and even though last summer I told Tricia she would never get me to run…I am now running 30 minutes 3 x a week! If you want someone who truly cares about turning your goals into a reality, than I highly recommend Tricia.

  • Tricia, I met you when my son was 6 months old and fell in love at first sight. I kept postponing calling your number when I encountered your card in one of the top hotels in Cote d’Azur, but the day we met I realized I should have started working with you much earlier because meeting you in person is better than any of your ads. From the moment I started seeing my adorable trainer and lovely friend every day or every other day depending on my schedule and moving travel plans – the results didn’t keep me waiting. The most problematic body areas started to shrink thanks to your knowledge of human physics and metabolism process. And I am not even mentioning the impression I see in the mirror, thanking you every time I smile.She will change your lifestyle without overloading you with too much unneeded info. She will keep you fit which for me also means having a fit mind. She is flexible and attentive, positive and fun and a great person to start or end your day with. And I just cant imagine my life in France without her pumping me up!

    Chère Tricia, Comment vous remercier pour vos mains d’ange ?
    Des douleurs lombaires d’origine musculaires, des tensions à la plante des pieds et des mollets.
    Un massage profond, des doigts d’acier ( il faut être courageux). Et le miracle s’opère.
    Plus de douleur , sentiment de légèreté ….Un pur bonheur
    Du coup j’ai offert un massage “Tricia” à ma fille et la voilà Addict 😉

  • Tricia, training with you is truly a pleasure, every lesson, no matter how intense it could be, was fun! 
    My son ( whom thanks to you feels much better) and I  were always looking forward to the next one and even my wife (!) 
    acknowledges how effective the workouts that you design for all of us are.
    In a matter of few weeks the results are obvious and visible and needless to say, you make us all feel very good after each of your sessions. 
    After receiving knee surgery on both knees, I was left unable to play tennis or run for 25 months, this left me frustrated
    and limited to what I could do fitness wise. After consistent rehabilitative exercises with you, I was able to run again.
    I want to thank you and we see you again soon! 
    Thank you!

  • Working on a yacht I have always struggled to keep myself fit and strong, the confined spaces have always made it difficult to work out efficiently. I was introduced to Tricia late this year and after talking for a while she introduced me to the TRX system. The following week myself and seven others whom I work with started training in Tricia’s group TRX class. Tricia had explained how the TRX uses your weight against gravity and having completed the first session I could not believe just how well the system worked, I felt muscles that I never thought I had before. Admittedly I was pretty sore after the first session but it did not take long to recover and within 2/3 sessions I was already feeling stronger. We now train with Tricia twice a week, which includes a workout using the TRX and cardio and abdominal work.We have been training for about 3 months now and the difference I have noticed from my first session is incredible, I feel fitter and stronger with each session. Tricia is a fantastic trainer and friend and I always look forward to seeing her, I would recommend her to anyone looking to improve their fitness.

  • Being a dentist, owning my own practice, and being a wife and mother of two children has made my day-to-day life quite chaotic and usually leaves little time for working out. Since working with Tricia 4-5 days a week, the results have far exceeded my expectations. I was convinced prior to working with her, that I would never truly get physically fit; indeed I was convinced that I would always have poor stamina. Working with Tricia, I feel immensely better about my fitness level (shocked is a better description!) lost 20 lbs., am eating healthier and I also am setting a great example for my patients and kids. She truly has made a difference in my life!

  • Having played 2 sports in college years ago, I missed the competitive edge and the health benefits I obtained. Not only did I want to reach that level of fitness again, but I wanted to regain the competitive environment in which to achieve it.Tricia has worked with me throughout the entire process to achieve my goals.She provided an initial fitness evaluation and designed a training program tailored to my exact needs and lifestyle. She also provided nutritional guidance and coached me throughout my workouts, monitoring my progress.Thanks to Tricia, I’ve successfully completed my first 100 mile cycling race.Even at 45, I continue to see marked improvement in my over all performance.
