Evolve instructors draw from their individual backgrounds, extensive training, and years of teaching experience to offer students today’s most innovative techniques in fitness.  The goal is for each of our clients to experience joy in movement.


I've always liked to exercise, but with 25 years of dealing with back trouble - and no "solution"- my physical therapist recommended Evolve. They know their stuff! I developed the famed "Pilates core strength" but so much more: a major improvement to my back pain.  The instructors are always learning and bringing new techniques to us. The classes are small (sometimes just 3 or 4 people) and attentive. There is an amazing variety of classes- no two classes are the same. The cost is more than a typical gym, but it is almost like personal training. In large gym classes instructors aren't able to correct form, nor do many of the instructors have the wealth of knowledge that Evolve instructors have.

“Best Pilates in town!!!”

— Client Roberta Pileggi on Facebook

Evolve has been a part of my life for the last twelve years. I love the studio because of the great Pilates classes and instructors- something that you cannot find anywhere else in Gainesville.

I have taken classes from all of the instructors. Their knowledge and the personal attention they give to each student is amazing. I have found great lasting friendships with the women I have met at Evolve.

“They're the best in Gainesville!”

— Client Jenna Grifith on Facebook

I have been a regular at Evolve for over four years, ever since I moved to Gainesville. I have been so impressed by their approach to group classes that I never even tried out any other place. Mostly, I have been to Kim's classes. Whenever someone has a particular issue she suggests an appropriate variation of an exercise. She regularly incorporates the latest developments and findings in sports and rehabilitation research into her one-hour classes. She always has a positive attitude and is forever cheerful. Occasionally another instructor will substitute for Kim. Each Evolve instructor has their individual style, and all are wonderful and professional.

“I spend every workday at my desk and it's taking a real toll on my back and my hips. I have tried so many different things and the training I've gotten at Evolve is the first thing that has helped me undo the damage. I love how small the classes are as well. It's almost like having my own personal trainer!”

— Client Allie S. on Evolve's Personalized Learning

"Evolve's instructors are knowledgeable, patient and committed to their students' success. They have worked with me through a difficult and painful recovery from a near fatal car accident. They have offered insights and practical suggestions to regain range of motion and fitness. They have helped me to regain a quality of life few in the medical field would have thought possible based on my injuries. I've been grateful to see the healthy transition my body has been able to achieve. For those with less serious goals than mine, the atmosphere is fun and friendly. Evolve strives to be cutting edge and succeeds. Gainesville is fortunate to have such a wonderful resource available!"
