“Think lightly of yourself and deeply of the world.”

This quote from the 16th century Japanese Buddhist philosopher, writer, and martial artist Miyamoto Musashi has always inspired me…

It reflects Musashi’s lifelong pursuit of expression through martial arts and contemplative philosophy.

I think of human movement as an art form — and like all art forms, the practice of focusing the mind and body to reflect and refine one’s expressive ability is an exercise of intellectual growth and bio-mechanical competency and possibility…

Pursuing mastery of our bodies through exercise is one of the most satisfying outlets we have. It is this expression that has fueled my lifelong love of martial arts — Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai being my favored forms.

I strive to teach mindfulness through movement and integrated massage. I am deeply passionate about unlocking a person’s ability to grow both physically and mentally by overcoming the challenges of physical training. By fostering a greater body awareness through the combination of intelligent programming and targeted tissue release you will have the confidence and knowledge to pursue your passions inside and outside the gym, while having knowledge to help remediate pain and tissue dysfunction as it occurs. 

Focusing on functional movement patterns and resolving tissue dysfunction/pain through deep tissue massage paired with targeted strength training is a fascinating obsession that I have been studying for years. 

I am a Licensed Massage Therapist and have earned specialized certifications with the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM); am a Functional Anatomy (FRC) Functional Range Conditioning Mobility Specialist; am certified in The Integrative Corrective Exercise Approach; am certified as a Precision Nutrition PN1 nutritional coach; as well as  a certified Bioforce Conditioning Coach.

Additionally, I am a competitive Muay Thai, Mixed Martial Arts, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu athlete.

I am continuously enhancing my professional competencies across disciplines, cultures, research and training opportunities both here and abroad.

I  specialize in deep tissue massage,  one-on-one, semi-private, and group coaching.

If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you…


Working with Evan reshaped my relationship with my body. Under his guidance, I achieved physical goals beyond what I thought I could do, and in the process I got out from under chronic back and joint pain I thought I would be stuck with for the rest of my life. I left with knowledge and skills that will allow me to maintain and improve my physical health for as long as I live.

On top of the results, in the two years I worked with Evan I never once had a bad day working with him. He is constantly positive, motivating, and interested in nothing but your well being. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I have been a client of Evan for two years and have nothing but upward thoughts and the highest recommendation for future clients. I began training with him a couple years after finishing college softball, and at the time, I had completely fallen off the wagon. I had not worked out in over a year, and was very insecure and ashamed of myself. At first, I refused to be weighed or take before pictures, and by the end I was excited to be measured and track my results. During the beginning stages of my journey, Evan was understanding and taught me to be kind to myself. He was with me every step of the way offering caring words when I was down as well as endlessly motivating me to not give up. I have worked with a lot of trainers in my life, and I have not found one that is of Evan’s caliber in terms of knowledge, caring, and received weight loss results. His expertise extends far past devising workouts, he assists in rehabilitation of injuries and aches. It is not often that you find a trainer that has the education to be able to assist you in rehabilitative mobility movements and stretches.

I hired Evan to be my personal trainer, and he ended up being so much more… he’s a friend, a confidante, and an endless source of information and tidbits on health and wellness. I have referred Evan to multiple clients and will continue to do so as he is by far the best personal trainer I have worked with. If you want to see weight loss results and have fun doing so, I recommend training with Evan.
