When local single mom Lydia Lawton found herself spending hours every week sitting in training gyms while her son and daughter participated in sports, she quickly realized that most of the area facilities aren’t geared towards the parents’ experience. Seeing the need to do things a different way, she spent two years meeting with sport psychologists, coaches, designers, and industry specialists. Together, they turned her vision into a reality, and EVO Athletics was born.
This one-of-a-kind elite training facility supports the athlete’s training, the parents’ needs, and the entire family unit.
Elite Athletic Training
EVO Athletics offers sports and fitness activities for toddlers, youth, teens, and adults. They specialize in gymnastics, volleyball, cheerleading and Ninja Warrior.
EVO’s students have access to internationally recognized coaching staff, state-of-the-art equipment, ninja warrior team building activities, and an on-site rehab & athletic trainer.
Upscale Family Amenities
One of the things that really sets EVO Athletics apart from other facilities is the focus on the family. Here, parents won’t have to sit in a dark, dingy waiting room for hours on end. Instead, they can take advantage of the “Work Out While They Train” parent fitness program or enjoy the in-house orthopedic services & massage therapy. EVO also offers recreational classes for siblings, so the whole family can stay active.
Want to just kick back and relax or need to get some work done? EVO also offers a full suite of amenities including free high-speed WiFi, a business center, a healthy cafe, pro-shop, and showers. There are viewing areas throughout the facility with TV monitors so parents can keep an eye on their kids while they train.
Adult Open Gym
If you’re looking at these pictures and thinking “I want to play!” you’re in luck! EVO also offers an adult open gym for anyone 18 and over every Wednesday night from 8:30 until 10:30 p.m. For just $15, you can enjoy the entire 32,000 square foot facility. Jump into a pick-up game of volleyball, test your skills on the infamous Ninja Warrior warped wall, laugh on the trampolines, and fly into the foam pits! Participants often burn 500+ calories just laughing and hanging out with friends.
