With our strong focus on Fit-to-Play sports conditioning and a well-equipped, professional facility, Evolution has attracted many national and community organizations, as well as international and competitive athletes.
We actively participate in many activities, events and fundraisers in and around Fernie and strive to initiate and support new programs to enhance and develop our community… such as our KEEP ON SPINNING program which annually donates 20 cents for every Spin participant we see to the Fernie Trails Alliance!
