The funds donated to the charity come directly from us and the evolution trainers BUT our donations can only be triggered by our clients attending their fitness sessions, transforming the world one sunrise at a time.
We are on track be the charities largest benefactor.
In contrast to Australia, Bolivia has an average wage of $162 USD per month, and is the poorest country in South America. Over 60% of its 12 million inhabitants live below the poverty line. Without outside support these people would be unable to access the medical needs they require. There are no leaks, loopholes or bureaucratic fences to jump so we can be sure that we are truly making a difference.

Korrin stumbled across (once you meet her you'll understand that she'd LOVE that pun) Evolution whilst searching for a training solution for amputees. Korrin had suffered an infection within her body leading to multiple amputations. After numerous surgeries and intensive rehabilitation she was ready to get her fitness back. A Google search led Korrin to our You Move Me page. She was inspired by our give back project and the evolution philosophy. From there a relationship blossomed in which Korrin started training with our Brisbane Evolutionary, Amy and became our official You Move Me Ambassador.
Since then Korrin has done numerous client talks, an interview on the Today show and media appearances, sharing her inspiring story and passion for You Move Me and the difference it is making in the lives of amputees across the world.

The freedom of movement is a gift never to be taken for granted. The fact that we can get out of bed in the morning and run in a park or on a beach is something very special.
Here’s what some of our clients think of you move me...
"The great thing about You Move Me is that it can mean so many different things to different people. People might draw on it as a motivator on those on those mornings when you’d just rather roll over and go back to sleep, for others it might just inspire them to be faster, stronger or fitter. I completely appreciate I am lucky enough to be motivated in my training so I’m not necessarily reaching for motivators to get me out of bed each morning and be ready to train at 6am. But what I absolutely love about You Move Me is that it really makes me appreciate how lucky we are to be fit, healthy and able to get out in the great outdoors and be active every single day. You Move Me looks out for those people who are not as lucky. So I see it as a real win win for me. I get to do something I love and am grateful for the ability to be able to do and someone else benefits from that. The ability to be able to move more freely and be more active opens up so many doors for these people and allows them to participate more fully in life. The fact that I played a little part in that simply by participating more fully in my life is really kinda cool!"
"Here is an opportunity to help those who are not privileged like I am, who are not mobile like I am, who have not the resources or contacts to make life a little better.
I have the blessing of being able to freely run and exercise to whatever capacity I choose and by doing so a little of what I can give can help another in this project to have the opportunity to move in a way that was impossible previously.
To truly appreciate what I have been given encourages me to give back to those who are less fortunate than I am. Not out of pity, but out of a genuine love to help others less fortunate than myself because to me that is true living.
There are many wonderful reasons why I train with Evo. One of those reasons is the respect I have for the vision to not be self centred about our training, but to use our training for the good of others. What joy!!"
"I didn't think I had much to say in a You Move Me Testimonial and then I realized that when I speak to anyone about Evo and "that morning training thing I've been doing for the last year" I inevitably speak the most about You Move Me. For me it is the most powerful difference between Evo and all the others and something I'm proud to speak to others about.
It's also been a motivator for me - especially in the early days when I was a bit less... um... committed... to waking up at 5.30am several mornings a week. I remember a while ago when I'd just been going a few months, Mike texted to say we had a long way to go to meet our YMM target for the final week and he needed everyone to do their sessions and more. I actually did an extra session when I was tempted to slack off. It was that moment I think that cemented my commitment to Evo and these days the 5.30 wake up is pretty easy."
