With its studio's purple walls and its lobby's cushy armchairs, Evolve Health Studio doesn't look like a traditional gym. It's not that the studio lacks the resources of other gyms—after all, instructors lead daily boot-camp classes and Zumba workouts just like at any fitness center. But the staff members recognize the limitations of traditional fitness centers, which is why they hold cooking classes, life-coaching sessions, and even posture workshops.
It’s also why they encourage clients to build relationships with the other students in classes, a practice which provides emotional support and someone to stand on when clients need to retrieve their salad spinner from the top cabinet. Instructors can even lead whole families in workouts to help to build healthy approaches to exercise at any age.
