Master Personal Trainer, Bodyweight Fitness & Bootcamp Specialist
Hi, I’m Dave Evans Master Personal Trainer and founder of PT Evo Bodyweight Fitness. I’m a retired British Army soldier having served 22 years keeping relatively injury free, whilst staying in peak physical condition through eating right and training right. The idea of PT Evo Bodyweight Fitness is to promote Health and Fitness, to the individual, through me passing on my passion and energy to as many people as possible within the Lincolnshire area & throughout the uk. I am the only trainer within PT Evo Bodyweight Fitness. I am the direct contact, my Coaching and Instruction is delivered by me. I write all my own classes and Personal Training programmes. I write my own nutrition guides. I include no fancy hard to get ingredients, I keep it simple whilst healthy and achievable. I don’t ask anyone to do anything unless I think they are capable. I don’t progress any individual too quickly beyond their ability but on the flip, I don’t hold anyone back, if I think you can do it then you probably can. I enjoy laughing so making it fun, even if difficult, is very important, the more you enjoy the more you push and the more you come back. However, the main priority is always to prevent injury whilst having fun and working hard. There are endless benefits to being Healthy and active. We as humans have evolved into lazy creatures who rely on fast food, quick fixes and technology to do as little as possible and it’s getting worse. There are so many small changes we can make in our daily lives to improve the quality of life and prolong it. 1-2 PT Evo Bodyweight Fitness classes per week can light the spark in people to welcome and embrace a healthier active lifestyle.
