Sam

Sam reports about 40 total pounds lost within 6 months, but likely more fat pounds than that, as he estimates 10+ pounds of muscle gained as well. He met and surpassed his original weight goal within these 6 months. Sam attended Evolution Athletics 2 times per week and made dietary shifts based solely on our nutrition recommendations. Sam is a wonderful example of consistency and accountability. He reports that he still enjoys all his favorite foods, just in moderation and consciously placed into the context of his whole day. As a client and class participant, Sam is always positive, engaging and fun. He encourages everyone else in the class, isn't afraid to try ANYTHING at all and regularly keeps us laughing. Thanks for being such a wonderful and inspiring part of Evolution Athletics Sam!

Two years before joining Evolution Athletics I became quite ill .. I was no longer able to teach school ( a career i loved ). I had very little energy , nor motivation .. And found solace in comfort food such as peanut butter . I knew I had to do something... I was not happy with the rolls  surrounding my body... Evolution Athletics was right in my neighbourhood.  And one day after a hair appointment just down the street from EA  I summoned my courage and WALKED IN . I felt comfortable and confident at my Consultation with Sharleen. When she showed me the programs offered .. And promised me that, " If you follow our program .. Nutrition and exercise .. We guarantee results".  I think I enrolled that very day My life now... I feel , confident , strong and proud . I am knowledgeable about functional fitness and proper fuel. My inner voice is much gentler and does not criticize nor expect perfection as I understand life had ebbs and flows.  I feel fortunate to belong to Evolution Athletics Being part of a growth based supportive community is a gift!  THANK YOU!

I joined Evolution Athletics to become stronger, healthier & to lose weight. Due to my age, career choice and prior lifestyle, I had become stagnant, unhealthy & lazy. I realized it was a definite must for change.

Erica Member: Since April 2017 I joined Evolution Athletics to become stronger, healthier & to lose weight. Due to my age, career choice and prior lifestyle, I had become stagnant, unhealthy & lazy. I realized it was a definite must for change. Since becoming a member: I have released body fat and gained lean body mass. I am “addicted” to learning more about physicality and nutrition. I am making healthier decisions about myself, not only is my body stronger, but my mind is as well. They work together symbiotically. I am continually working on releasing bad habits and taking the next steps in my life to guarantee I am set up for success in all areas. I look at the community of members and see their positive changes, and this excites me. I have changed immensely: my outlook on “gyms”, my health & nutrition, and my overall mindset. I absolutely recommended EA to others!! The atmosphere is amazing, the community is embracing and caring. The coaches are extremely knowledgeable and I love it here! This is my home away from home.

I had tried so many programs before but nothing ever worked like this!  The tools are amazing, the support is incredible and I tell people all the time -- just follow what these amazing coaches say and you'll be blown away by your results!  My life is completely different now.  I've gone from wanting to lose weight to learning to fuel myself as an athlete.  I ran a half marathon this year when 2 years ago I couldn't walk for 2 blocks with my family on vacation.  I have my life back and the sky is the limit!

Mike S Member; Since September 2015 Since joining Evolution Athletics I have lost a 100lbs. I feel stronger both physically and mentally. I have much more energy and feel mentally healthier. I struggled with simple everyday things – an example of this would be a family trip to Mexico. I had trouble going on simple excursions with my family such as walking for short distances, which left me tired and my feet aching. The next family vacation after joining Evolution Athletics, I ran 5km every morning before everybody else woke up. I have since completed a half marathon and a sprint triathlon. In 2017, I was part of a relay team that placed 8th out of a 155 teams in the Queen City Marathon. This year my goal is a spartan challenge. My physical change has been so dramatic I have had people I know literally walk right by me and not recognize me. I would absolutely recommend Evolution Athletics! I achieved the results I have by following the fitness and nutrition programs at EA. The management and coaching staff are amazing with their knowledge of fitness, which is only equaled by their commitment to each and every member.

Evolution Athletics has impacted my life in so many ways. But one of the main reasons for me is my family. I am the one my Dad calls to move the old washing machine out of the house or to load the granite countertop into the truck. I’m proud of that. My parents are wonderful, vibrant people but I know that eventually they are going to reach an age where certain things are more difficult for them to do and I’ve always said that the older they get, the stronger I need to be. It’s the least I can do for them! Thanks to Evolution Athletics, I’m the strongest I’ve ever been. I’ve also learned that it’s okay to fail and that it really is necessary in order to make progress. Evolution Athletics constantly has you stepping out of your comfort zone and while my steps might not be huge, I view it all as positive.

Evolution Athletics has impacted my life by giving me more confidence. I find I am more confident when walking into a room of new people, when setting fitness and lifestyle goals and in the way my body looks. The community is also outstanding and has never judged. Knowing the people around you are either only concerned about what they are doing, or genuinely excited and happy for how far you’ve come, takes a big weight off my shoulders and allows me to focus on what I’m doing. It’s also contagious and you truly only start comparing yourself to how you did yesterday. Physical changes I have seen since beginning my program include being able to run 5 km easily, with no struggles in breathing or getting tired, increased barbell weights or less banded assistance in workouts, and attempting to do toes through rings and actually being successful (even though I thought for sure I couldn’t do it). Doing burpees has also become easier, even when combined with other conditioning movements.

Wayne

4-5 months after beginning, Wayne had lost at least 40lbs by strict adherance to the sound nutrition, and committing 2x/wk to Evolution Athletics and adding other activity like walking the golf course as frequently as he could. Wayne has formal training as a chef and some of his concoctions made it VERY easy to stay on track with such delicious food. We also discovered that Wayne is easily one of the most mobile clients at the gym. Sitting in bottom squat like this is NOT easy for 99% of the general population! It was great to see him gain decades of youth, returning to the former high caliber athlete he once was!

I started at Evolution Athletics after my friend Chantal signed me up for it. Chantal had started after her second little girl was born. I must say I didn’t know what I signed up for!! I had foot surgery on both feet a few years ago. I was on crutches and a wheel chair as I couldn’t walk for long periods of time. During my sick leave I was inactive and gained almost 30lbs. My recovery was long and painful and I was left weak. I noticed I had problems with my right shoulder and it would pop out every time I raised my arm over my head. I went to physio and they said I needed surgery on it. I had just begun to recover from my previous surgeries. I was frustrated with this news. I went to get a second opinion and her plan was to strengthen my shoulder using different exercises. The first day I started Evolution Athletics I could not raise a wooden dowel over my head, skip and do box jumps. My progress has been slow and I have physical limitations but I have seen huge improvements in my ability to survive a tough workout. I have also lost 30lbs since I started at Evolution Athletics.

I learned the hard way that exercise with healthy eating is essential!! Eating healthy makes your workout much easier and recover better. I did do the Whole Life Challenge and I learned a lot about healthy eating and that vegetables are not that bad. Being a teacher is stressful and exhausting and CrossFit has been a great way to relieve stress for me. Due to stress my body had gone into hypersensitivity and I could not eat a lot of things without feeling sick or have red welts appear on my body. I became allergic to what seemed like everything. I still have some allergies but nothing compared to what I was experiencing before. Due to CrossFit Moose Jaw, for the first time I feel like I have a good balance between healthy, mind and body. I would recommend CrossFit Moose Jaw because of the great community. I have met some great people who all encourage each other. No matter what your ability is they cheer you on! I have even had people who have finished their workout join me and finish what I have left. Lisa who is my best friend also CrossFits is an example of someone who is advanced CrossFitter and a machine but is modest about her ability. She congratulates and inspires me to improve at every work out. (There are not to many 7 month year old moms to be that can do unassisted pullups.)The coaches are the BEST!! They will meet you where you are and work with you.

At 34 years old I didn’t think I should feel this old, be this beat up and tired.

I was a smoker most of my life, really enjoyed partying and having fun and I ate what I wanted, when I wanted. That lifestyle is not sustainable. At 34 years old I didn’t think I should feel this old, be this beat up and tired. I needed to make some changes and being able to breathe was step one. I have always enjoyed being active, but it was getting hard to keep up and stay involved. I had tried to quit smoking many times but failed. This time it was different, this time it worked! When I quit smoking I gained some weight. I was 225lbs of mostly squish and snacks. That’s when I knew I needed to make some more changes. I started walking at night after the kids had gone to sleep and tracking my calories. I started to lose some weight, the everyday grind and keeping up with the kids was getting easier. The better I felt the more I wanted to do, the more I did, the more I knew I wanted to do more. I got myself down to 175lbs and was feeling good, but wanted to take the next step. After checking out a bunch of different fitness options and not knowing what I wanted, it was time to decide what “I” really needed to keep “me” committed and happy. That’s were Evolution Athletics comes in. Physically I have had many changes in body composition and endurance. I still weigh between 175 and 180lbs, but my body fat percentage is way down. I feel like I am stronger and better equipped to do anything in life. Mentally my self-awareness and self-confidence are huge. I feel the need to learn and grow, and look forward to what tomorrow has in store for me. When people ask about my transformation or comment on me looking good and healthy I always tell them about my experience at Evolution Athletics.

Evolution Athletics has impacted my life in many ways; I am healthier, close to a good body weight, I have more muscular definition, I am stronger, and I have good cholesterol levels… need I say more? Since starting at Evolution Athletics I have more energy that lasts throughout the day. I love that!!! My body has changed quite dramatically and is becoming more of what I recognize as ‘the old me’. My shoulder and arm definition has returned and I feel that I no longer have ‘old lady arms’, sorry for the term but that’s what I call them. I also have exercise stamina. A workout that used to just destroy me, can now be done with only a moderate amount of stress. At my first pretest to see where I was at, I really struggled but today I can fly through that workout and more!!! I now even have some pain free hours (hands, back, knees) which is so nice. I believe that the stronger your muscles are, the better you are able to support any other issues such as my back problems.
