Evolution Health & Fitness Centre: Owner Candy Foggo and nutrition business entrepreneur Trevor Fyfe with some of the Prime Nutrition range
It may be tucked away in a discreet corner of Southside, but Evolutions Health & Fitness Centre is going strong four years after opening its doors.
The east end fitness centre, on Waller’s Point Road, has weathered the economic downturn and is looking ahead to better times.
It is also now an outlet for a new nutritional supplement aimed at bodybuilders, which has met with praise from one of the Island’s successful bodybuilders Sabrina Burgess.
The gym is equipped with an impressive selection of free weights, resistance equipment and cardio-fitness machines.
It has fitness classes, which are particularly popular with women and also beginners looking to get started on a fitness drive.
Candy Foggo runs Evolutions. She said: “It was set up to be a gym in the east. Myself and two partners had the aim of attracting people who live in the east and were looking for a state of art gym without going to Hamilton.”
Clients from St George’s and the eastern parishes have found it convenient to visit the fitness centre, especially when they are seeking a morning or lunchtime workout.
Ms Foggo said the gym has weathered the economic downturn of the past few years.
“With the recession people have had their disposable income cut back,” she said.
“At the same time you have to be conscious of your health, because if you don’t have your health you don’t have anything.”
She pointed out that it was worth comparing the cost of gym membership with the cost of paying for various medications if you don’t look after yourself and end up with ill health and ailments.
A new addition at the gym is the availability of the Prime Nutrition range of workout supplements.
Ms Foggo is a former three-times Bermuda bodybuilding champion. She has previously steered clear of promoting supplements at the gym because she was wary of being associated with any that might have a bad reputation.
