  • Don't cancel your fitness goals over the holidays.

    Make sure to keep up your workout routine through the holidays. We all know that person who has abs in July and flabs come January. Maybe you’ve even been that person! The truth is, it’s a pretty common cycle to go through. The Holidays roll around and everyone we know is cooking the best food they can in buffet quantities. It’s easy for even dedicated fitness junkies to lose track. But, common as it may be, it’s avoidable with the right planning and routine. Don’t believe us? Take a moment to think about it— if you’re slipping from your summer gains, it’s rarely just diet. Holidays bring more than food! They bring stress too, between visits, ....

  • The truth about Kickboxing.

    There’s a lot of self-defense bunk out there, and we’d like to help you cut through the nonsense and tell you the facts about our kickboxing classes. Maybe you’ve heard that the ideal self-defense martial art is Aikido, or maybe you’ve heard it’s Tai Chi. There’s, of course, a lot of appeal in these yoga-adjacent martial arts and the way that they talk about balance, rhythm, force, and mindset, but the truth is that there’s not an athletic pursuit on Earth that won’t talk about those. Maybe you think boxing or MMA kickboxing is too forceful and not for you, but we’re going to let you in on a secret: Any martial art worth its time is ....

  • Ever thought about trying out Jiu Jitsu?

    Have you ever considered training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu? If not, now might be the time. While Jiu Jitsu sometimes lacks the spectacle and raw athletic benefit of striking, there’s a reason that it’s become the most popular martial art in recent years, and it’s not just due to its association with elite-level mixed martial artists. Jiu Jitsu is, without equal, the most utilitarian, bang-for-your-buck martial art you can train, with a wider set of benefits than you can expect from most physical activities. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has been described by some as a full-body chess match, or a debate in a language that uses the body to speak. Descended from Judo, “The Gentle ....

  • Gain confidence through MMA.

    A lot of people ask us what mixed martial arts can do for them.

  • Keep kids healthy and active with our Kids MMA program.

    It’s a rough time for getting kids active but our MMA program for kids can help. Apps send pings and buzzes designed to satisfy, and content is delivered so that you only ever crave more. The research is still pending on what the effects of so much addiction-creating screen time can have on kids’ development, but the cost of too little physical activity is crystal clear. While adults need a minimum of two-and-a-half hours of walking per week, kids between 5 and 18 need at least a full hour of vigorous exercise, every day. Less than this is linked to weaker bones, hyperactivity, and increased risk of heart problems throughout adulthood. MMA is a fun way for kids to stay healthy ....

    Stop waiting on Monday to start your MMA or fitness journey. Here at Evolution, we work with complete beginners, championship fighters, and everything in between.

  • Don't let friends hold you back from your goals.

    Have you ever been frustrated with your gym buddy? Training alone can be tough, whether it’s just lifting weights or trying out a whole new gym, so we get it, it’s good to have a friend around, even if they flake out sometimes. But it can really get on your nerves sometimes, can’t it?
