Emily Evans, ACE Certified Personal Trainer, Functional Aging Specialist

Emily graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science and obtained her personal trainer certification from the American Counsel on Exercise. In college she helped train athletes to improve strength and agility and educated them on proper lifting form and injury prevention. After college she was a trainer at a physical therapy clinic where she worked with a broad range of individuals from an elderly patient with chronic back pain to a young athlete post knee surgery.

She always had a passion for fitness and loves being able to help others understand that it’s never too late to get started with a healthy and active lifestyle. Working in a physical therapy clinic helped her see that a sedentary lifestyle can lead to pain, surgery, and medication. You only get one body and taking the time to take care of it is the best thing you can do for yourself! Her goal is to design fun and effective workouts for my clients and to educate them on a healthy lifestyle so they can continue do all the things they love whether that’s traveling, hiking 14ers, or keeping up with grandkids.

As a trainer she is constantly learning. She loves to try new workouts and different forms of exercise to build her knowledge and to keep things new and fresh for her clients. Her current challenge is learning to cook and to finding new and simple recipes that are healthy and delicious. In her words: “My career is a constant journey and I love every moment of it!”

Lori Blevins, ACE Certified Personal Trainer, Functional Aging Specialist

After being an elementary teacher for over 15 years, Lori decided to pursue physical fitness as her second career and earned her personal trainer certification from the American Council on Exercise. Fitness became an important part of her life at the age of 20 after being inactive and overweight during her childhood and adolescence. She began exercising and changed her eating habits, losing 60 pounds and discovering her new passion. She understands the desire to make lifestyle changes as well as the uncertainty as to how to go about doing so and wants to help others see that fitness and a healthier lifestyle can be both simple and fun. She knows it’s never too late to get started and that the rewards are well worth it.

She has spent two decades growing her knowledge of fitness and using it to help others live a healthier, more active lifestyle. She has been an avid runner for over 20 years, finding a love of cycling in the last decade. She began water skiing at the age of 10, snow skiing at the age of 11, and learned to snowboard when she was 21. She has firsthand experience working with friends and family members that are not living the life they want due to the effects of a sedentary lifestyle, missing out on travel and other activities due to a lack of energy and ability. She has a true desire to help individuals of all ages and ability levels be able to easily participate in the activities they enjoy whether it’s training for a marathon, going on a dream vacation, gardening, or playing with their grandchildren. She loves creating the perfect workout for each client and helping them discover that they have more energy than ever and that lifting weights can be fun! For Lori, the reward is the smile at the end of a workout, hearing how much better, stronger a client feels, seeing pictures of the vacation they prepared for, or just the ‘thank you’ and that they want to keep coming back.

As a trainer and educator, she has a true love of learning and knows that her own education is never done. She has two teenage sons and she and her triathlete husband have worked diligently to teach them what a healthy lifestyle looks and feels like in the hopes they will carry this with them into their adult lives. Only living in Colorado for almost 4 years, on her bucket list is to complete at least one 14er. Her ultimate goal at The Conditioning Classroom is to create a safe space in which each client can discover the fitness level that will allow them to live their best life.
