My name is Mathew Benvie and I am the owner and Head Personal Trainer at Evolve Fitness. Growing up, I always wanted to be a gym teacher and a coach, it just didn’t seem like there were any other options. I had teachers, and more specifically, coaches who went above and beyond the call of duty to help me become a better athlete and also a better person. While I knew they didn’t want anything return, I knew what they really wanted was for me to do for others what they did for me. While at St. Francis Xavier University working towards my Human Kinetics degree, I was able to obtain a personal training certification through CPTN. I started working boot camps and then moved to one on one and smaller group training. It wasn’t until I sat down with my favourite Professor, Angie Thompson, that I knew I wanted to be a personal trainer forever. She knew how much I loved teaching and coaching, and told me that personal training is really like one on one teaching. I ended up finishing at St. FX with a B.A. in Human Kinetics, but took away so much more. I did achieve my goal of becoming a coach, while coaching the Bantam boys rep basketball team my last two years of school. I also formed lasting relationships with professors and students that will continue to shape my life as I move forward.I have now created an awesome fitness boot camp that is helping Halifax get fit! The Evolve Fitness Boot Camp is an original indoor boot camp designed to burn fat and build lean muscle in a short amount of time. We combine resistance training with cardiovascular exercise in a high intensity environment which is the most proven method of burning fat FAST. We have lots of times available to make this the most accessible and affordable training option possible. My trainers and I absolutely love what we do, how could we not? Day after day we are helping people get fit AND we have a lot of fun doing it.Let us share our knowledge and passion with you and help you get fit today!
