Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Evolve Nutrition & Fitness
Determined to inspire permanent lifestyle changes, the certified personal trainers at Evolve Nutrition & Fitness work with their clients virtually anywhere. They graciously host sweat sessions inside their 2,000-square-foot studio, and they willingly travel to homes, parks, and local tracks to ensure clients elevate heart rates to that of a midsize hummingbird. Wherever they are, Evolve’s instructors set a fun but focused tone as they lead students through a mix of high-intensity cardio and weight training. They incorporate plyometrics, free weights, and kettlebells while at the studio, though in-home exercisers need not fear, as instructors bring along the appropriate equipment to clients' homes. Depending on their goals, clients can opt for one-on-one sessions or group training, which takes form in boot-camp, family-fitness, and corporate-wellness varietals.
