Healthy Hearts and Minds
Inspring all to keep Healthy and well
Evolve strive to offer activities that are open to all to encourage people to keep active and keep well in body and spirit.
Many people are put off from formal exercise classes due to expense and the stylistic glitzy image that some of the gyms offer and their images often result in communities or individual feeling it's not the place for them.
Evolve pride themselves in developing programmes of activity bespoke to the audience to ensure it is inclusive and benefits all.
We deliver work in care homes, Highbury Hospital, Schools, Local Community Venues. Below are some of the examples we offer. There will be more as we will continue to identify ways of creating activity that meet the needs of our community.
Womens Boxing & Circuits
We listen to the needs of the community and understand the barriers people have when it comes to finding time to do something for themselves. Our Women only Boxing sessions and circuit classes have been designed around the School day to remove some of the barriers preventing women from working on their own fitness and well being. Meeting other women, helping and supporting each other, helping shape positive social action and influence local decision making in the community for the benefit of everyone.
Working in partnership with Midlands Nordic Walking, we have a fully trained instructor supporting sessions on Broxtowe country park. Similar to other forms of moderate activity, regular Nordic walking can lower your risk of chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, asthma, stroke and some cancers.
Providing an opportunity to get fitter, bringing communities together, and activate a local open space in a positive way.
Zumba with Charm

But most importantly have fun and laugh together. Building confidence by having a go at an activity often seen as reserved for the young. Bringing young and old together under the common theme of Boxing.
