I joined just as the transition from Kardia to Evolve was happening and I'm so grateful for my timing. I have received excellent personal attention, encouragement and coaching, and am sort of evolving along with the gym. Already it has undergone a remodel, so it's light and bright and clean. And I've had the opportunity to get to know the owner, Scott, and appreciate his goal of turning Evolve into a community of people who are helping each other reach their fitness goals. I committed to doing small-group training twice a week and have worked with several coaches, all of whom have been thoughtful and lived up to the gym's use of "personalized fitness" in its name. I love the neighborhood feel, access to safe underground parking and ability to work out at my convenience (open 24 hours!). For someone who is self-conscious about her physique and fitness abilities but highly motivated to improve, Evolve has been a life-saver.
