Loving the versatility of our new #beltsquat machine. Moses utilizing the pull bar attachments to do weighted pullups. Big fan of versatility and function when it comes to gym equipment. No sense in spending $1k for a machine that takes up 20 sqft to do biceps.

Evolution Strength and Conditioning

From Mike,

Equipment upgrades/additions
So excited to share with everyone some of the new additions/upgrades to the gym. Back in January we sold a Hammer Strength V-squat unit in order to make space for a new machine. I am a big fan of strength training when it comes to working with clients. I feel that resistance training pays off immensely with any fitness goal for any individual with any fitness ability.

Being able to squat properly is important however not everyone can squat with a bar across their back. Squatting with a bar across your back is not for everyone, 100% agree. I had a solution for this but needed to make some space in the gym which led me to sell the V-squat unit to make room for our new "belt squat machine".

I wanted a machine that would allow all clients to squat freely but without the discomforts and injury risk a barbell provides. The belt squat allows folks to do just that. Taking the load off the spine and placing it onto the hips removes any risk of injury to the back and allows users to squat freely while still benefiting from the added resistance.

Along with the belt squat we've upgraded many of benches in our arsenal for your training needs.

We've added...

2 new utility benches (adjustable from 0 to 90 degrees)
a 75 degree utility bench
a new and improved hyperextension bench
a hip thrust bench (also another game-changer for strength/resistance/bodybuilding training)

I hope you all enjoy these new additions and as always I am very grateful for your continued support of the business.

Hoodies and sweatpants are still available. With the "spring" weather there is still some cold out there. Hoodies are thick and full zip with zippered pockets. Sweat pants come in full length and 3/4 length and also feature zippered pockets. These are going for $40/each.

Parking/Street Cleaning
Spring in Chicago means STREET CLEANING! Want to make sure that everyone knows that beginning April 1st - November 30th that there is street cleaning on the West side of Pulaski (the gym side) on Fridays from 7am-9am.

This means NO PARKING on during those hours (7am-9am) every Friday. Please take note of that so none of you get ticketed by the city.

Also want to bring up the parking situation in the lot. Please be courteous to others and park within the lines. I realize it's a tight space for some but parking your vehicle on the line or taking up two spots will leave others no other choice but to do the same.

It's not fair for folks to have to squeeze into a tight space then get out of their passenger side because folks cannot park correctly.

I hope everyone is enjoying their time here at Evolution. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

Our @loyolachicago interns learning how to lift kettlebells. Working on the proper positions for the "jerk" (rack, 1st and 2nd dip, then their lockout) these students were able to go through a 5 min clean and jerk set.

Our clients love/hate relationship with our percussion massager. Work out those tight muscles/knots and help warm up the body to do work. Breaking up the tissues around the shoulder blades for better movements in the gym.
