We are award-winning!
At Evo, we are extremely proud of every member of our community, for what they achieve each and every day. This month, we are exceptionally proud of our founder and leader James Llewellyn.
On 4th November, James was absolutely blown away by being presented with his award for Outstanding Service to Sport 2020 by Surrey Heath Borough Council.
The Sports Awards celebrate the achievements and commitment Surrey Heath’s local talented athletes, coaches, volunteers and sports organisers, as well as those who have championed sport and physical activity over the past year. General Manager of Evo, Tracy, who has worked with James for over 4 years, nominated him to recognise the hard work and dedication that he gives to the community every day.
Tracy says, ‘𝐽𝑎𝑚𝑒𝑠 𝑎𝑙𝑤𝑎𝑦𝑠 𝑑𝑒𝑑𝑖𝑐𝑎𝑡𝑒𝑠 ℎ𝑖𝑚𝑠𝑒𝑙𝑓 𝑡𝑜 𝑡ℎ𝑒 𝑡𝑒𝑎𝑚 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑡𝑜 ℎ𝑖𝑠 𝑚𝑒𝑚𝑏𝑒𝑟𝑠 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝐼 𝑤𝑎𝑛𝑡𝑒𝑑 𝑡ℎ𝑒 𝑜𝑝𝑝𝑜𝑟𝑡𝑢𝑛𝑖𝑡𝑦 𝑡𝑜 𝑠ℎ𝑜𝑤 ℎ𝑖𝑚, 𝑗𝑢𝑠𝑡 ℎ𝑜𝑤 𝑚𝑢𝑐ℎ ℎ𝑒 𝑚𝑒𝑎𝑛𝑠 𝑡𝑜 𝑢𝑠.

As a team, it was hard to keep the award a secret from James, but we managed it, and to see the surprise on his face when he saw the whole team and his family applauding his achievements made it worthwhile!
After the shock had settled, James said, ‘𝐼 𝑎𝑚 𝑡𝑜𝑡𝑎𝑙𝑙𝑦 𝑏𝑙𝑜𝑤𝑛 𝑎𝑤𝑎𝑦 𝑏𝑦 𝑡ℎ𝑒 𝑎𝑤𝑎𝑟𝑑.

We have helped over 1500 people transform their lives over the past 8 years and over 2000 people have come through our doors.
To all of the people who have turned up and pushed themselves, thank you! You’re the reason James and the team show up every day and you’re the reason that James has realised his dream of making proper, effective training accessible to everyone while removing the fear of weight training. Thank you for helping him achieve his Outstanding Service to Sport award for 2020.
The award was sponsored by Complete Coaching Academy, a sports academy teaching football, dance and netball. Kris Hatton, owner and founder, was proud to present James the award.
Congratulations James! From all the team x

When you come here you will discover a passion for training and natural nutrition. This will change your life and transform your body back to its natural, beautiful state.

If there was a place that could transform your body, inspire and motivate you to reach your highest potential in life would you be interested? If there was a place that could show you the quickest path to the body of your dreams, reverse your ageing process and give you a new passion for life….would you take that chance? This is our purpose at Evo and what we strive to deliver to all those who come through our doors. I promise you that coming here will be an enriching experience that will change your body and your life. I look forward to meeting every one of you and guiding you to the body you desire. Which in turn will give you the confidence and happiness that you deserve.
