This month our member of the month is actually a special group of people! Every week we have the privilege of working out with the men and women at Decker's Family Care in Ranier, better known as the Ranier Roost. We (Erin & Ashley) have been visiting twice a week for about a year and half, and the improvements we have seen with this group are amazing!
We have watched them go from limited mobility and coordination to now doing exercises similar to what our in house senior class does. Each week we work on overall strength training, range of motion and even practice chair yoga with them, and each week we are greeted with smiling faces eager to do more.
While our group varies a little week to week, one thing that does not is their desire to live life! They keep moving no matter what it's like outside! After each session, we take them on a walk around the facility, and a few of them even venture outside whether it's sunny or snowing!
Thank U Ranier Roost for allowing us to be a part of your "family." We truly enjoy walking through the doors each week and working out with U ALL!!
Today, June 10th marks our two year anniversary of the doors opening at Evolve U. As many of you have heard we began our journey a few months before the studio opened, taking every opportunity we could find to help clients in their homes. Today, the studio is booming and it's all thanks to U!!!
We opened our doors on a Monday morning with 9 people attending our very first class in the studio. That week we offered 11 classes and our first weight loss challenge, by week two we expanded to offer 13 classes. Today we have a packed schedule with classes six days a week, early morning classes, a successful senior program and we have implemented a variety of new classes and programs for all fitness levels.
We do have plans for the upcoming year! We hope to add a few more instructors (after they have gone through the AFAA & Evolve U training), as always we are on the lookout for the newest industry trends in group fitness and we hope to open up more usable space in the backroom.
We cannot thank U enough!!! Evolve U is about educating and changing our community - and all of U continue to make our dreams come true. We thank U from the bottom of our hearts for continuing to walk through the doors, for spreading the word about everything we have to offer and most of all... for evolving your lives and becoming #strongereveryday.

For the past 18 weeks we have had the wonderful opportunity to work with a group of women and watch them transform their lives with our new “U” challenge. The U is a three part challenge that is more than just working out: we get down to the root of what got you to where you are today, how to move forward and conquer your personal and fitness goals. The first six weeks we focus on learning, goal setting and making small changes. The second six weeks we begin to learn more about working out and beginning to chase those goals. Our final six weeks, we begin to prepare the women for the next part of their journey, with more focus on holding themselves accountable and figuring out what works for them on a daily basis.
We could write a book on everything that these 19 women did over the past eighteen weeks, they truly exceeded our expectations and left a mark on our hearts. They band together, became each other’s biggest supporters and found new ways to encourage and build each other up. Our slogan “stronger everyday” proved to be what they lived by. Each one of them have had amazing physical transformations, but what has been even more amazing is their emotional and mental growth. Their spirits have blossomed and they have all become truer versions of themselves.
The top five from our first ever U15 challenge were:
1.) AMY BRUCE-SILTMAN
Lost 18.37%, 35.20 pounds and 18 inches
2.) Kelsey Kurhais 17.24% 33.3 lbs & 16 inches
3.) Kristi Taylor 12.95%, 21 pounds & 13.25 inches
4.) Leesa Palm, 12.39% & 28.6 pounds
5.) Kerry Kelly, 11.62%, 23.2 pounds & 9.25 inches
We want U to KEEP MOVING & become STRONGER EVERYDAY. Evolve into U.
