The History of Body Evolution
Mary Toole opened Body Evolution on a 28 year old’s shoestring budget in 2008 at 1045 Riverside Dr. She saved for more than 4 years and was blessed with the opportunity to pay for all equipment in cash, which has been her business motto since. However, just a short while in to business the historic location flooded with more than 18 inches of water. Fortunately, she had established some amazing members and Harold and Mona Speir of Speir’s Electric came to the rescue and purchased the current location of 171 Spring St. They renovated the building in less than a month and the Body Evolution family has continued to grow! When you walk in the doors of the 24 hour gym and CrossFit box you will be greeted by our wonderful and smiling Alison who helps run the front desk or Mary, the owner herself. You will see the walls covered in photos of members who have conquered great achievements and feel inspired by the energy of people on personal missions; ranging from training for a couch to 5K, a marathon, a triathalon, a bodybuilding or figure show, CrossFit regionals, a powerlift meet, or people like Mr. Jim who just want to keep his cholesterol low and be healthier. Body Evolution is a gym for anyone with a goal! We want members who are ready to take on whatever they see as a challenge and overcome it! Body Evolution offers a variety of ways to achieve your goals; personal training, Boot Camps, CrossFit, and full access to a gym where you aren’t just a member, but part of the family!
