“Tricia thanks for all your expertise and encouragement. I have been working out for over 38 years with private trainers and you are truly tops in the field. You are knowledgeable, persistent and lots of fun to work with!”

“Being an elite runner all my life, I knew increasing my balance and core strength would immensely help my overall performance.
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.
After diligently doing the exercises, 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.”

“Tricia’s everyday discipline, commitment and dedication to her clients, speaks for itself. Not only is she her own walking billboard, (now I see why she was a Nike model) but she gives you the belief and motivation to achieve anything you set your mind to.Tricia is someone that inspires me to push the envelope and to not give up when there are set backs.Thank you Tricia for being such an inspiration and helping me take my fitness; mind and body to the next level. You are truly one of a kind.”

“Cara Tricia, ti sono davvero grata, hai cambiato il mio intero sistema alimentare portandomi a una forma inaspettata, facendo cadere tutto il peso del mio bambino di cui ti sono così grato !! Mi hai dato un ottimo allenamento ma soprattutto una forte motivazione per un nuovo stile di vita sano ricco di spuntini sani ed entrambi deliziosi che mi hanno fatto raggiungere il mio obiettivo! La tua forza, motivazione e amore per quello che fai raggiunge tutti, sono così fortunato chi ti ha trovato!!”

“Tricia knows it from your core. Connecting with her has been one of the few highlights of 2020. She knows the body and is as skilled as they come. I’m a lifelong athlete with many injuries and feel fortunate to have experienced her work.My pain dissipated and I was able to move more freely after a 90 min session. Do yourself a favor and book a session with her. It will be one of many.”
Risa Mara Machuca . Olympic Surfer . Sayulita, Mexico
Tricia’s wealth of knowledge of how the body functions mechanically, emotionally and physically as well as the stress and demands on the mind and body resulting from owning 2 Companies, have far exceeded my expectations! Coupled with her effective manual therapy techniques that have released and rebalanced my body has not only alleviated chronic back and hip pain, but has also helped promote more strength and flexibility which aids in more power output for my spinning routine and everyday life activities. If you want someone that truly cares about your health and wellness, Tricia is the inspiration you need to take your mind and body to the next level!”
“As a former professional athlete for the NFL and U.S. Army Combat Veteran, I’ve had my share of injuries. Most recently I was involved in a car accident earlier this year. As a result both shoulders, neck, hip and knee were badly injured resulting in limited mobility. Unfortunately this greatly impacted my workout routine which included high level workouts with my daughter, MMA fighting, CrossFit, Battle ropes, Boot Camps, etc. 5-6 times a week.
Following the accident I did the usual chiropractic work, massages, PT, whatever I thought would help even adding holistic things such as changing my diet. Unfortunately nothing was heading in the direction of what I would call a permanent solution.
I got introduced to Tricia O’Hara through a mutual friend and decided to give her an opportunity to try some of her techniques on me. Suffice to say she’s a magician, a miracle worker and in my mind a goddess on every level. Prior to our session and as a result of the car accident, I had limited mobility on my left side. For 6 months, I could not raise my left arm, turn my head or have enough flexion in my left hip and quad to do my usual sprints. After just one 90 minute session with Tricia, she said, “Raise your arm, turn your head and flex/extend your left quad.”
I was in disbelief!
With Tricia’s assistance, I once again regained mobility in my arm, lifting it straight up over my head. I could turn my neck and was even able to test my legs for sprints the next morning.
I am not 100% back to where I want to be but I am closer to 70%. More importantly I have seen more progress in 1 session with Tricia than I have using a myriad of other modalities in the last 4 to 5 months. Her treatment and care has renewed my hope that I can get back to some level of “being normal” again and resume my active lifestyle.
I cannot recommend her enough and I can tell you that she’s worth everything! You can’t imagine just to have even the belief that I’m going to get back to normal was worth it. It was an incredible gift from her that I will continue to be grateful for.
If you’ve had injuries, if you’ve had long-standing scar tissue damage, are in recovery, anything you think where you just said it’s just the way it is or this is my new normal or unfixable or not treatable. I would give her a chance, she is Amazing. Contact her, you WILL NOT regret your choice.”

“Initially I was introduced to Tricia when she was invited to lead a group class for me and my colleagues. I was taken by surprise that after just one class, I could feel so light, flexible and invigorated. During this class she worked muscles and areas of my body that I didn’t realize even existed. This intrigued me so I continued working with Tricia privately, 1:1.
Since working with her, not only do I feel my body has transformed but after EVERY class I am left with an incredible amount of energy!
I’ve tried all types of workouts in the past – cardio and strength training. Nothing has ever transformed my body and made me feel as revitalized as her workouts.
Tricia has in-depth knowledge of the human body and how it relates to everyday stress and movement. She is especially tuned into the challenges we face on a daily basis; sitting in front of a computer with little or no movement for hours on end.
Not only does her philosophy incorporate a holistic view of the body but I’ve never seen such impact on my physique and energy levels with other workouts. Grateful for Tricia! I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to start living a more healthy, balanced lifestyle.”

“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!”

“I came to see Tricia as part of an effort to reset my fascia and increase my mobility after years of strenuous bodybuilding that left my body stiff and imbalanced. Of all the sports massage therapists I’ve worked with, Tricia stands out in her ability to get deep into the underlying imbalance and work out the kinks holistically. Her methods can be painful at times, but the reward is walking away with the freedom that comes from mobility.”
Matt S. Founder. CEO. Augment . Silicon Valley
“Working with Tricia was a great pleasure through which I have not only ritualized my fitness routine but also learned a few helpful lessons. The biggest misconception about fitness is that there can be a quick fix. I learned from working with Tricia that fitness is a holistic concept that encompasses nutrition, exercise, lifestyle, mindset, sleep and human connection. It has to be consistent.
Tricia taught me about planes of movement and the importance of training our bodies to move in all of them. Adding exercises which help us move in other planes will build flexibility to avoid injuries and remain fit for a long time. Benefits of fitness are cumulative.
I have been a long time fan of Bar Method and think their instructors do a great job at ensuring proper form with all students in their class but only now do I really understand nuances of certain exercises. It’s improved my kinesthetic intelligence and I am expecting to see dividends in becoming a better dancer too! Which brings me to the last point- fitness should be fun and joyful. It starts with a positive outlook on life, which is needed now more than it has ever been.”

“I am very thankful to you for your efforts in making me a sporty person.- I am very happy to be able to run now and feel much much stronger!! It has been a very interesting journey. My reward is a very visible result we have achieved together. I have very strong abs now!
Thank you very, very much!!!!!”
“Я очень благодарен вам за ваши усилия, которые сделали меня спортивным человеком. – Я очень счастлив, что могу бегать сейчас и чувствую себя намного сильнее !! Это был очень интересный путешествие и моя награда – это очень видимый результат, которого мы достигли вместе. У меня сейчас очень сильный пресс!
Спасибо большое !!!!!”

“I’ve been frustrated that our institutions for health and wellness have a big gap in the middle where the ball gets dropped. I was a Division 1 swimmer in college, But at 46, I’ve acquired a collection of old injuries (broken bones, herniated discs, sprained ankles) and repetitive stress issues that mean I have various pains (lower back, neck and shoulder pain) that I thought were not fixable. I’ve tapped into my great health insurance over the years but the results were all so-so.
She’s an elite athlete who has studied the body in order to achieve her elite results. She has a deep understanding and intuition of how the body should work, and zeroes in on the problems. Then she approaches the solution with a combination of targeted exercises, stretching, very painful (but miraculous) body work, and massage, to bit-by-bit solve the problems. – She’s the missing link in wellness.
Whereas the rest of our health institutions drop the ball with handoffs between various specialists, Tricia takes personal responsibility for understanding you holistically and solving all your problems with you.
In a short 2 weeks my lower back, neck, and shoulder pains have significantly dropped from a pain level of 5 to 1. I’ve lost significant belly fat and dramatically strengthened my core. 2 weeks ago I thought I just might be experiencing the inevitable decline of middle-age. I just needed Tricia to show me the way.”

“Tricia, I met you when my son was 6 months old and fell in love at first sight. From the moment I started seeing my adorable trainer and lovely friend everyday 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. 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.
I just can’t imagine my life in France without her pumping me up!”

“Dear Tricia, How can I thank you for your angel’s hands? Lumbar muscle origin of pain , tension in the feet and calves. A deep massage , steel fingers ( you have to be brave) . And the miracle occurs. No pain anymore , feeling of lightness …. A pure happiness. So, I offered a “Tricia” massage to my daughter and now she’s an addict!”
Tricia is brilliant because she has a profound vision of osteo muscular structure of the body – Thank you!”
“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 est brillante parce qu’elle a une vision profonde de la structure osteo musculaire de l’organisme – Merci!”
Dr. Henri Delmar . French Riviera
“Being a high-level athlete and physical therapist myself, I’m selective about choosing other health professionals to work with.
By happenstance, I met Tricia at the pool and we connected over an Ironman backpack.
From there we realized we could both probably benefit from each other’s skills. Not only does Tricia have a fabulous working knowledge of human anatomy, she thoroughly understands the muscular system and how it relates to everyday movement. She has a keen sense of effective manual therapy techniques to release muscle tension and promote greater flexibility and ease of movement.
Beyond her expertise in bodywork, she is an inspirational fitness model & trainer, a focused and driven elite athlete; a supportive and reliable colleague and friend. Thank you for existing Tricia!”
Susan Nowell . Physical Therapist . Owner . San Francisco
“Over the years I had been plagued with injuries and surgeries from surfing and other lifelong sports.
When meeting Tricia she explained that her method of training was based on rebalancing the body and incorporating functional and corrective movement. She said this would help keep me injury free and eliminate the nagging pains I had suffered from over the years.
Here almost 2 years later I couldn’t be more happy and pleased to be working with her. Though the bodywork at times can be quite painful, it has proven to be quite beneficial in allowing me more flexibility and range of motion for everyday activities.
Last season I was able to ski successfully without any knee pain; with more speed and agility that I’d had in years. Also for the first time I managed to remain injury free on my month long surf trip. I owe all this to Tricia for her guidance and wealth of knowledge in the fitness arena. Being able to do live workouts with Tricia online via FaceTime from anywhere, also has help me immensely to stay on track during my busy periods of work travel. I highly recommend Tricia to anyone who is looking to take their fitness to the next level and incorporate a life long healthy lifestyle.”

“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, then I highly recommend Tricia.”

“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. I would recommend her to anyone looking to improve their fitness.”
Adam Hart . Yacht Captain . French Riviera
“I met Tricia some years ago, originally for fitness lessons. Through our lengthy talks about running professionally, I learned that Tricia’s iron will, discipline, and professional level of understanding of the sport was unmatched. Her insights into the ‘science of the human body and running’ inspired me to run again.
Thank you Tricia for all your great help, support and wisdom along the way!”
“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.”
