In 2013, two like-minded women came together to build a fitness studio that would hopefully change the lives of many. Not knowing exactly what they wanted their space to be, but knowing they had passion, knowledge and drive, together they formed Evolve U. A place where anyone regardless of their age, fitness level, gender or ability can come and learn about themselves. Growing is not only a physical process, but a mental one as well. The U is a safe haven for people to grow physically, mentally and emotionally. It is a place where you will not only be pushed beyond what U think U can do, but also be encouraged along your journey. With a wide variety of classes, programs and seminars we make fitness, along with guidance to living a healthier lifestyle available to anyone. We want U to KEEP MOVING & become STRONGER EVERYDAY. Evolve into U.
