Meet some of ThriveWell’s Diva&Dude Instructors

Lindsey Merrifield

I am originally from Houston and have lived in San Antonio for 6 years. I am an animal lover and have a dog. I am a certified Pilates instructor, as well as a certified health coach. I have been teaching Pilates for a year and a half and have been doing health coaching for 4 months. During my free time, I enjoy being outdoors, or trying out a new recipe. I enjoy living a healthy lifestyle and enjoy working with others who strive to do the same.

I have been a Zumba instructor for the past 10 years. It gives me joy to help guide people with their fitness journey.

I bring a positive attitude to the class, I want to help participants achieve their goals by encouraging them, one class at a time.
