Real people, real results
“I started my fitness journey because I wasn’t able to walk up a flight of stairs without heavy breathing. Bending down to tie my shoes felt like an exercise to me. I was at 33% body fat with high blood pressure (144/96) and high cholesterol. During my fitness journey, I suffered from three biking accidents. I had open lacerations needing multiple stitches, broken clavicle, collapsed lung and a broken wrist. All of which kept me out of the gym for six months. Through weekly physiotherapy treatments, unique exercises Colin designed with my injuries in mind and most importantly his motivation and support, I was able to achieve my most recent success. I have released 18% body fat, blood pressure and cholesterol are back to normal and I’ve gained 20lbs of muscle. I have trained with Colin for 6 months prior to opening his own gym. If you’re wondering if you should train with him, JUST DO IT! His workouts are never boring as he always switches it up and finds new exercises to do. I would highly recommend Colin for anyone who wants to lose weight and build muscle! “
” I started personal training when my sister asked me to be Maid of Honour at her wedding. I realized that I wanted to look good since I was going to be in a lot of pictures. When I first stepped on the scale I didn’t realize how heavy I was and I knew that I needed to change. It has been a hard 3 months as I work 50 hours a week and had to find time to work out in between. After looking at the before and after pictures I can’t believe how much my body has changed and how much stronger I feel. I am not quite at my goal but I know I am heading in the right direction and that I will look amazing in my bridesmaid dress in January!”
“As a kid, I always struggled with my weight. I was always bigger than my friends and it lead to being very self-conscious. As I grew older, it was always easier to take the easy way out, the lazy way. The weight kept going up until one day as a 39 year old man, I finely said enough is enough. I started this 90 day challenge as something to do with my wife but soon found out that I needed to do this for myself, it wasn’t just something to do to spend some QT with my wife. If I seriously wanted to lose the flab that I had been trying to lose for years, I would have to buckle down and get it done. The last 90 days was not easy but with the support of my loving wife and my awesome trainer, I finely had the drive and support to lose the weight. 90 days, 20 lbs. & 14 ½” later, I am in the best shape since my early 20’s. My journey in not over yet, I now have the motivation and the support to continue until I reach my ultimate goal. Being at a healthy weight and a healthy state of mind is where I want to be for my family and for myself. It’ll take a lot more hard work but with help from my family and friends, it WILL happen.”
“It was at this very low time in my life that I was lucky enough to have someone close to me in my life,cast a rope down into my valley and teach me one very valuable lesson. It’s OK to need some help at times. It’s okay to admit you don’t know what your doing. And it’s ok to fail, especially if you have someone to help pick you back up. Entrusting the beginning of my journey into the very capable hands of Colin allowed me to finally put aside my pride and truly begin the long but very important journey out of my valley. Personal training has been great in helping me train.. but more importantly, it was essential to understanding to ask for help, and put my pride aside. One valley conquered. Health.. here i come. “
“Colin is a dedicated trainer, always going above and beyond. He’s knowledgable, fun, and patient as he explains all the movements and answers all my “whys”. I have had other trainers in the past, but Colin is definitely the best. You can just tell that his excitement for you in every success is genuine and he really has his clients best interests at heart. He also brings a great sense of community to everyone involved with Evolution through challenges, clients supporting each other, and informative events like Nutrition & Meal Prep. You won’t be disappointed!”
“I have never trained with anyone better than Colin Bailey. He is motivating, encouraging and extremely dedicated to helping his clients reach their goals. Colin is always prepared before I arrive, making sure I get the most out of my time with him. He changes things up regularly so I don’t get bored and is the perfect combination of tough and supportive. Colin is exceptionally professional and his extensive knowledge allows him to train people at different levels and with different needs. He sincerely cares for the well being of his clients and I would recommend him to anyone looking to improve their overall health in a way that is fun, challenging and sustainable.”
“I started my personal weight loss journey just over a year a go in hopes to “look good” for a wedding in October 2016. But what I thought was going to be a couple weeks on the treadmill has turned into one of the most challenging and satisfying experiences of my life! However, over the past 90 days, I truly put my body and my mind to the test to see just exactly what I could achieve. The results are a stronger, fitter, more confident me. I have smashed through the goals I initially set and plan to set new, even loftier ones. I owe everything to the guys at Evolution Performance. They’ll never know how much of an impact they’ve had on my life.“
“When I started training with Colin I struggled with my confidence, my weight and the way I looked at myself. With Colin’s help, I was able to move past these barriers that were preventing me from living my life to the fullest. I went from having to wear sweaters all the time no matter how warm I was, to feeling comfortable in just a t-shirt or a tank top.I loved training with Colin. I looked forward to our work outs every week. He always gave me his undivided attention while we were training. He was always able to block out any distractions for the hour we were together, and dedicate our sessions to working hard towards my goals.While working out with Colin I was able to push past my max weights and cardio limits that I never thought I would be able to accomplish. I saw results within weeks of starting with him. He always customized my workouts towards me and my goals as well as work around any injuries I had. For example; when I started training with Colin I suffered from knee pain. Colin was able to help me strengthen the muscles around my knees, showed me stretches to decrease the pain significantly and in addition he showed me how to properly run so I didn’t have any discomfort in my knee at all. I would definitely recommended Colin to anyone who is looking to attain any fitness goals they have set out for themselves. He is by far a superior trainer, making sure to always keep up on the latest fitness trends and continually learning to help improve his clients.”- Whitney F.
“I had the privilege of training with Colin for a year. With his help I was able to get into the best shape of my life and gave me the building blocks to continue training on my own. I would recommend Evolution Performance Airdrie to anyone.”- Steve L.
