Client Stories – Redfern

I started my EVO journey in January 2015 at Redfern Oval under the watchful gaze of Adam, along with a host of characters (human and animal) who wander/fly in and out of the park during our sessions.  Where else can you have a dog jump onto you whilst concentrating on a plank, or a kitten taking residence under your butt during a bridge hold?!

Trainer Stories – 10 Years of Evo Coogee

This month is pretty special for us down at Coogee Beach as we celebrate our 10 year training anniversary!! I started Evolution Coogee back in April 2008 when I was working at a boutique health club in the City after meeting Founder of Evo, Mike Britton on a Pre and Post Pregnancy course…

What makes our Evo’s special? Client stories part 2

I’m 65 now, I was just a baby at 59 for my first EVO session. I was walking through Waverton park one Spring morning and saw the flyers … and the rest, 1,100+ sessions later, is history. I think I’ve kind of rusted on to Evo…

Trainer Stories – Part 2

I was born and raised in New Zealand and although I enjoyed an active lifestyle – lots of sport, surfing and fishing etc – being “Healthy” was never a major focus…

The Power is in the Vision

I often will tell my clients that the best training program you could ever have is the one that you do. We, as humans, are literally “meaning” making machines. What we do is create reasons and meaning behind our lives that simply justifies our lives exactly as they are. You see, our minds are 100% dedicated to proving ourselves right exactly as we are…

Hit the Trails & Run Free

It is easy to train indoors when the conditions outside are slightly uncomfortable. Yet, that is not why we do what we do. Evo training is about far more than just your session and getting a bit of movement into your week. We are aiming to tackle some of the big challenges in modern times, the loss of connection…

Tips For Adjusting To Daylight Savings

Everyone gets excited when we spring forward into Daylight Savings time, it marks the end of winter, and lighter evenings with more sunshine to bask in. But, there are downsides when it comes to staying on track with your training through this transition period, especially if you like to work out in the mornings. Losing an hour of sleep may not seem like much but your body only needs small changes to potentially send it into chaos…

What is the “Core” anyway?

One of the most common sayings across all areas of the fitness industry is when a yoga teacher, lifting coach, Pilates teacher, HIIT trainer, Les Mills Instructor, Dance teacher, boxing coach etc will say; “Turn on your Core muscles”. But what is the ‘Core’ anyway and why do so many people talk about this magical Core?

Building Community

Evolution was founded on the whole idea of communities of people training together in their local beach or park and supported by a lead trainer who was as much community connector as they were fitness trainer…

What makes an Evo trainer different? Trainer Stories Part 1

I am 26 years old, Adelaide born and raised and I drinks green smoothies for breakfast. So far so good? Although only 3 years young as a community leader and trainer for Evolution my relationship with Evo delves much deeper. I first found Evo (or maybe Evo found me) when I had just moved to Sydney after living in Perth for 3 years. Upon arrival I only knew the friendly face of my sister and my two new housemates…

Controlled focus is like a laser beam

Two weeks ago I finished the blog by paraphrasing George Zaluki, saying, to be consistent with who you are, the machinery of how you are made, is compelling and we need to be compelled to reach out and achieve. That there is clearly something attractive and inspiring about people who are setting out to achieve and the focusing of your energy to achieve is harnessed by goal setting…
