Sam I Am – Our Very Own Sam Stubbs – Fearless
Evolve Fitness – inclusive functional fitness in Jervis Bay.
You know Sam Stubbs is one of a kind. He is always cheerful, has a go at everything and anything and really just a pleasure to be in the company of. This is his journey at Evolve Fitness where he has been training for approximately 7 years.
When he come to us as a teenager with his Dad Chris, he had one aim… to get big guns! Well what could we do.. we embraced his desire! Sam has embarked on a fitness journey with our gym consistently showing up for classes and slowly fulfilling the need to sort out those big guns!
Sam started with our Kids Functional Fitness Classes.
Well, he instantly took a liking to working with head trainer Jodi beginning with our kids classes that support 5-16 years. Jodi was immediately impressed with his strength and determination. He had a willingness to listen and progressed quickly with functional weightlifting and cardio. He started out with disliking skipping immensely but over time he mastered this and now doesn’t mind. Like everyone burpees are still immensely disliked so we make sure not to let him know until he is at the gym when these are programmed!
In 2018 Sam attended the Bay Games as a spectator. He turned to his Dad and said I want to do this event. He attended the gym and relayed the same to our staff. The preparation began building him up to attend the event in 2019. Sam certainly possessed the eye of the tiger with his training. The event was held in October and at one point the whole arena cheered Sam on to a complete a workout. It was certainly amazing to watch. Now Sam was hungry… he wanted more.
The Battle of Benton was next in early 2020 in Mossvale. Again he excelled with his performance. At the start of 2020 pre-Covid Sam was asked to participate in building a short film about his journey with functional fitness. Evolve fitness was honoured to be part of that film and Sams Journey. We love training people such as Sam at our gym and please contact us if you would like to find out more. Sam Stubbs you rock!
