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.
Evan has had a huge impact on the success I have found in the gym.
When I first started working with Evan I was 31 years old and had not been in the gym since high school. I was active person, practicing martial arts and long distance running but I knew if I wanted to take these sports to the next level I had to start working out in the gym. Evan was able to listen to my goals and make a comprehensive workout plan that would directly help me achieve these goals.
Of course, I was nervous and self-conscious about going to the gym after so many years away. Evan helped me feel comfortable by clearly explaining what we were going to do and having a unique positive attitude towards myself and the workouts. Also, there were multiple times where I injured myself (outside the gym). I thought I wouldn’t be able to train for weeks/months until the injuries had healed. Evan was able to adjust my workouts to allow me to continue to train while dealing with these injuries. Also, he was able to teach me techniques to help prevent future injuries.
After 6 months, I went from weighing 210 pounds down to 185 pounds. I shaved off one plus minute on my average running time/mile pace. My overall condition, strength, flexibility, and success in martial art practices improved. I also was more confident in and outside the gym.
I would recommend Evan to anyone. If you have real serious goals or just want to stay in shape, you can’t go wrong working with Evan.
I have been working out consistently for over 30 years and started working out with Evan 15 months ago. In that time I have gained 15 pounds of lean mass, which has always proved difficult for me. In addition to that I am much stronger, more physically balanced and flexible. Evan is passionate about what he does and has vast knowledge of anatomy, physiology, nutrition and pain/ tension remediation. It is amazing to me how he can identify and, instantly, release tension and subsequent discomfort or pain.
He has a extraordinarily keen eye for proper movement and communicates very well so I can execute with precision.
The only thing that eclipses his training expertise is his perennially great attitude!
I have had the pleasure to work with Evan Smith for over 3 years. Both in person and remotely.
When I met Evan I had no level of training or any kind of knowledge about proper movement.
I was also about 230 pounds, constantly tired and in pain. The thing I noticed first about my experience with Evan was that if I showed up and did what was asked of me, then I got results!
I learned how to push my body and my mind safely. Avoiding injury and setbacks. Evan is great at sensing what will get results for his clients.
He knows when I’m holding myself back so he pushes me through and he knows when I’m at my peak and gives me the praise and encouragement that I also need to hear.
I was never afraid to try something new because I knew that I would have a thorough explanation and visual example to follow.
Over 3 years later I am still working with Evan.
I am pain free, have unlimited energy and confidence and most of all I FEEL great. I’m at my healthiest weight ever thanks to Evan.
He took an overweight girl with no sense of how to break the cycle of self destruction and made her into an ATHLETE! And it was fun!!
Training with Evan has been empowering to say the least. In a short matter of time, my strength & vitality has skyrocketed, and my posture has improved tremendously.
I have watched my body lose several inches, while at the same time my muscle definition has increased beyond expectation…. so exciting!
Evan is truly inspiring, motivating, and wise beyond his yrs. I’m confident with Evan by my side, I will reach goals I never thought possible.
I feel truly fortunate to have found such an amazing personal trainer… it is easy to see that Evan loves what he does.
Thank you Evan, for your inspiration, your humor, and your friendship.
Evan Smith is an awesome coach. Period.
Here’s why: After having been out of sports and fitness for over 20 years I was really nervous about heading back to the gym.
Evan made me feel super comfortable, confident and enthusiastic.
His can-do-anything energy is contagious. After getting my feet back under me again, I signed up for his MittFitt class. It literally changed my life.
I haven’t had that much fun in years! Being a teacher by trade, I notice all of the small things that Evan does to make his clients motivated, comfortable, and stay on track.
His attention to detail, knowledge of his trade, training skills and his lead by example attitude makes Evan an awesome coach. Period.
