Well-known fitness classes and training experience, eVOLV Strong, battles the isolation of the COVID-19 pandemic head-on by offering live online workouts — for free!
eVOLV Strong might be located in Albuquerque, NM, but you don’t need to live there — or anywhere close — to experience their free Social Media Live Yoga and Fitness classes. Curt “C.J.” Chavez — owner, founder, and trainer at eVOLV Strong — has been making the most of COVID-19 restrictions by maneuvering around closures, social distancing, and the personal reasons why some people are extra careful not to be out and about as much.
His solution happens to be a fantastic service anyone can access — for free! His Live Yoga and Fitness classes are the perfect way to beat the quarantine blues and ward off the dreaded COVID-19 ‘fifteen.’ You can access these classes from the eVOLV Strong Facebook page.
Before there was a pandemic, people from all over recognized eVOLV for producing the largest fitness challenge and show in New Mexico called Rise of the Phoenix. This ‘Biggest Loser’ style event takes over 150 individuals on a twelve-week wellness transformation journey and showcases their accomplishments at the end with what Chavez calls ‘an extravaganza fitness show.’
The Rise of the Phoenix event for 2021 is in the planning stages, and eVOLV’s website will have more details soon.
