Evan is a Bradley University graduate who is currently in graduate school to pursue his Doctorate of Physical Therapy, and is in his final year of school. Evan’s experience ranges from coaching younger kids, high school athletes, general population, and even specialized training for specific populations including those with spinal cord injuries and previous surgeries.
Throughout Evan’s years of coaching he has had the opportunity to manage a large range of client’s goals from losing weight to improving athletic performance, and strength training to avoid injury. With a background in Physical Therapy he has been able to utilize his skillset to help those who may be in pain, or are unsure how to go about training, and help them along their path; showing them that there is a way that they can reach towards their goals, regardless of circumstances or what someone has told them, and that he is there to help guide them.
Outside of coaching, Evan tends to get bored easily with activities and has competed in natural bodybuilding, Ironman triathlons, and is an avid outdoor enthusiast with an activity list too long to write on here. Evan likes to play 90’s punk rock music, slam medicine balls, and make sure that you’re workout is one that you leave feeling better than when you started. You won’t come to a workout without a motivational quote, talk, and a life discussion at the end.
His spirit animal is a Bear, because he can always be found out wandering the forest or eating, is very protective of his group (it’s technically called a sleuth), and prefers to hibernate during the cold months and avoid the winter.
I was born and raised in SLC, UT and graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in Kinesiology. I’m currently a DPT student at Bradley University. My coaching experience is in functional movements, strength training and bodybuilding.
I enjoy skiing (not much around here), hiking (also not much around her), and anything related to fitness. I’m also a huge foodie and I enjoy long, late night walks to the refrigerator. I’m on a quest for the worlds greatest peanut butter!”

Brittany loves lifting heavy things. There’s no better stress reliever than lifting and throwing some weights around. (I mean, you can’t really be thinking about anything else when you’re staring at a bar full of weights that scares you just a little!)
