What You'll Get
Michelangelo famously claimed that the human form of a sculpture resided in the stone itself and that the artist’s task was merely to free it using totally tubular nunchaku moves.

This Groupon is for 30 consecutive days; it expires 30 days from your first attended class.
Evolution Fitness follows in the fit footsteps of its owner and founder, Conor Kelly, with several programs aimed at trimming waists and toning muscles, including the Evolution Fitness Boot Camp. With a one-month membership to the boot camp, you’ll be able to take advantage of classes three days a week. The Evolution Fitness Boot-Camp regimen focuses on strengthening the body’s core muscles, located between the tundra of your shoulders and the mesas of your knees. Heavy lifting and repetitive cardiovascular routines are eschewed in favour of fun, energy-boosting workouts, such as light running, circuit training, and obstacle courses. There’s no dieting, and boot-camp participants can see quick weight loss with the program’s specialized approach to exercise. Evolution Fitness’s certified instructors use progressive programming at the boot camp, allowing for participants of all shapes and sizes to safely push themselves, regardless of how much jiggle they have on their jowls.
What you lose in weight, you’ll gain in friends, because Evolution Fitness Boot Camp fosters a social element of teamwork and camaraderie among its participants. Check the schedule for class times and locations, including the boot camp’s newest venue—on the sandy shores at Polson Pier.

About Evolution Fitness
At the beginning of his fitness career, Conor Kelly was a walking paradox: an out-of-shape personal trainer. Though he had taken part in powerlifting and strongman competitions, he found that much of the weight he had gained over the years was fat rather than muscle. So, he became his own client. He observed how lean, toned people conducted their workouts, paying special attention to practices that weren't mentioned in mainstream gym classes. He spoke with other trainers to learn which strategies produced results, and which were ineffective fads. Eventually, he combined all of his research into a new philosophy—one that banished his excess weight, and became the founding principle of Evolution Fitness.
The method he created relies on personalization. Clients meet with him or another certified personal trainer for an initial assessment, during which they identify their goals and take several measurements. The trainers then plan workouts to address specific aims, whether it's weight loss or muscle sculpting. They coach their clients in a private studio with a mix of cardio intervals and strength exercises, keeping the routines varied and, to the best of their ability, fun. Nutritionist Dr. Abazar Habibinia also contributes dietary advice. His manageable tips work within the client's lifestyle, and refrain from stressful rules that prohibit your favourite foods unless you're eating them while doing a wall-sit. And, for those that can't commit to an ongoing, customized program, Conor and his team also host group boot-camp sessions.
