Pounds lost – Too many inches to count – Even more to come


Name: Barb McFarland

How have you changed?

I have become more flexible, stronger and a lot leaner over the past couple of years and have lost of 40 lbs and too many inches to count.

What is Evolve to you?

Evolve is the best place to train because the workouts are tailored to me, my ability and the abilities of everyone in class.  Evolve is like a drug, in the best sense of the word, you get stronger, healthier every day and you don’t even realize how you’ve come so far so fast.

Before Evolve I was not in very good shape and knew it was time to get busy and get in shape, it’s the only place I knew I could get the results I wanted.

Favorite Quote:

Questions, concerns, obscenities……?

Fondest Memory:

While working the ropes Blake stood beside me and reminded me “You’re not old, you got this, old only happens if you let it.”

Most Dreaded Exercise:

Burpees, it used to be jumping rope but I got really frustrated one day and took one home with me, took it on vacation and I don’t dread jump ropes any more.

Barb has been a member at Evolve for about 2 years, enjoys long walks on the beach and believes Burpees should be struck from the Earth.  At Evolve we are honored to work with each and every single member because the moment they walk through our meager squeaky doors they entrust us with their health, their bodies and their fitness.  Showing up 5 days a week at 545am should leave the average human being slumped over in their chair by noon but Barb roams the stairs of Parsons Behle & Latimer all day long without stop, smiling the whole way.

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.

Thank you for sharing your journey with us Barb and for pushing the limits each and every day.


Every member at Evolve trains 5 days a week with us, receives individualized nutrition plans and goes through a unique evaluation process to clearly define, set and achieve their goals.  If you have goals that you would like help achieving call/text us at 801-899-9391 or email us at to schedule your complimentary assessment today.
