“I was struggling with a back injury for 3 years before I heard about Meagan Cox. Activities that I had enjoyed like hiking and being on the beach now caused pain and disability. I was exhausted from battling chronic pain and chronic sleep deprivation and I probably wasn’t much fun to live with. A friend suggested to try Pilates and see Meagan as she had had good result with overcoming her injuries.
Meagan opened Evolved Fitness studio and I was one of her first clients there. Now being a larger build for most of my life, group exercise classes and gyms were places I never felt very comfortable in. I didn’t find them to be very friendly places, and I always felt self-conscious.
I never felt that way in her studio. Not only did she help me get back on my feet, I became more agile, stronger and fitter. My pain reduced, my sleep increased and I regained my sense of humour and probably became nicer to live with.
A few months ago, I had come into Evolve Fitness for a tune up rehabilitation session and crossed over with one of her clients who was just finishing theirs. We discussed our programs and our progresses with each other. As my new friend left the building, he turned and said “Yeah, Meagan is a real gift”.
I have reflected on that comment and he is right. Meagan is a gifted therapist who gets results, but even better than this, Meagan gave the community a gift when she created Evolve Fitness studios. From when she first opened the studio, she has expanded her therapy/rehabilitation services with help from the lovely Alison. She has now expanded to have an amazing team of Pilates instructors that work alongside of her. This team is as warm, caring, and welcoming as Meagan. She has provided the community with easy to access and very affordable on-line classes, (this was a must for a lot of people during COVId 19 lockdowns and subsequent job losses).
She has given a gift of a safe haven that provides a diverse range of classes that meet the need for the young, old and in between. Exercise classes for those needing to keep/ increase their fitness or those who need targeted or supported rehabilitation. A place where friendships are made and where community has been built. All accepted, no judgements, just encouragement. It is a gift and it just keeps on giving.”
