How We Approach Fitness
Evolution Fitness is an advanced training, performance, and recovery center designed for patients and clients of all ages and activity levels. Our fitness centers were founded and are facilitated by physical therapists who have specialized knowledge and skills in biomechanical movement and exercise. We strive to provide patients with the most efficient and effective workout while being safe and eliminating the risk of injury. Whether you have particular goals in mind that you want to achieve, or you just love the process of training, improving, and being challenged, Evolution has you covered!
Common Fitness and Performance Services
Evolution offers a wide variety of group classes, personal training, and sessions using state-of-the-art workout and recovery equipment. Below, explore our full list of fitness services to help you stay active, healthy, and strong!
The Alter G-Trainer is an anti-gravity treadmill that works by reducing your effective body weight during exercise. At Evolution Physical Therapy, we use the Alter G to help patients run without pain, train through injuries, and supercharge their workouts.
Even professional athletes aren’t always mechanically sound. Those who sign up for assessments will be examined by team members experienced in kinesiology and physiology. Once the assessment is complete, you’ll be provided with corrective exercises that will improve any musculoskeletal imbalances, reduce potential pain, and improve athletic performance.
Every golfer serious about their game needs to use a Bodi Trak at least once. It’s one of the best reference tools for measuring the ground pressure of a player during their swing. When you use the Bodi Trak Force Plate system at Evolution, you’ll get real-time insight on opportunities to improve your swing and shave strokes off your handicap.
At Evolution Physical Therapy, our boot camp training is focused on weight training, metabolic conditioning, and high-volume muscular development circuits, allowing you to progress week after week. This program can be modified to fit all levels of activity.
Evolution offers cardio workouts as part of our group fitness classes, using state-of-the-art equipment and techniques. This total body workout will improve your cardiovascular health and endurance while helping you prevent future injuries.
The Evolution team will work with your company, regardless of size, to improve fundamental issues our bodies face when working at a desk on a daily basis. Corporate wellness consults help improve both morale and productivity!
Due to the high number of snow-sport related injuries seen in our clinic, we felt it imperative to provide a dry-land conditioning program that met the specific demands of snow riding and reduced the risk of serious injury.
Our group fitness classes include TRX, cardio, boot camp, strength training, functional mobility, sport conditioning, youth boot camp, and mat Pilates. The first class is FREE, and we offer packages for 10 and 20 classes or unlimited monthly sessions.
Functional Movement Screen
Functional Movement Screens are a key tool for the Evolution team to identify imbalances related to seven fundamental movement patterns.
We'll use your FMS fitness assessment to improve both your mobility and stability.
Evolution offers a 12-week strength and conditioning program for high school lacrosse players to get them prepared for collegiate level training and competition. The Shot Speed Training is facilitated by our doctors of physical therapy and former Division I athletes.
To reach your peak self, you need both a sound body and mind. Use our nutrition services to enhance your healthy lifestyle, improve your mental health, and maximize your workouts.
If you prefer the individual attention of working one-on-one with a coach, Evolution offers 30- and 60-minute personal training packages from 1 to 20 sessions. We also provide a Functional Movement Screen (FMS) for $50.
Pilates involves a range of movements used to engage the abdominals, lengthen muscles, and increase strength and flexibility while preventing aches and pains. We offer one-on-one and duo sessions.
Recovery boots offer full foot, ankle, and leg compression therapy using sequential, dynamic air compression to improve circulation, enhance performance, and speed up recovery post-exercise.
Many of our locations, especially on the West Coast, have clubs set up to enjoy running as a group. We also have many collaborations with local organizations, such as the LA Road Runners, LA Tri Club, and Adidas Runners.
This program is an injury prevention/enhancement program specifically designed for runners. Due to the repetitive nature of running, overuse and repetitive strain injuries are common.
Running Evaluation & Gait Analysis
Running itself will not cause injury to your feet, legs, and hips - it's the way you run. Most runners take well over 1,000 steps per mile, so even a slightly skewed gait can become a problem. Your physical therapist can perform a gait analysis to understand your movements and recommend specific exercises to strengthen your core muscles and improve balance.
Sports conditioning is a year-round activity for many athletes. Evolution Physical Therapy offers sports conditioning to improve athletic performance, including speed, strength, and power, and prevent or reduce the risk of injury.
Integrate strength training into your overall fitness routine with the help of Evolution Physical Therapy. One of our licensed physical therapists will guide you through specific exercises to reduce body fat, increase lean muscle mass, and burn calories more efficiently.
Youth Training (Boot Camp)
At Evolution Physical Therapy, we offer a boot camp designed for young athletes who are looking to kick start their fitness goals. The program combines cardio and strength in one session and is a great way to burn calories and fat, stay fit, and make some new friends!
