Long story short, she has a ton of education and background in BOTH rehabilitating the body and getting it in awesome shape!
"I am extremely passionate about fitness and community building. It has always been my dream to put my expertise to work in my own community. So EVOLVE has been a dream come true. I believe that sweat is the best therapy, and it is always more fun and rewarding to push yourself with a group of close friends. I believe we are all capable of doing amazing things with our bodies in every decade of life. But in order to make that happen, quality instruction and leadership are essential."
Paul is our run coach extraordinaire, a husband, father, and systems engineer. Paul has been a lifelong athlete and is truly a natural-born runner.
“While I have always enjoyed physical activity, between my time in the Army and playing soccer for as long as I can remember, it wasn't until 2008 or so that I started to run with some purpose and goals in mind. I ran a handful of 1/2 marathons and marathons over the next few years and then jumped into the Ultramarathon scene through some new friends I met, at a local 5km race of all things.
To date, I have run races ranging from 5km up to 100 miles. I don’t really have a favorite distance, because they all have their own unique ‘appeal’. I am not a frequent racer, I just enjoy the simplicity and freedom that running duly provides.”
Bobbi grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania. With a passion to teach and care for others, she pursued an Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education with a Bachelor's in Psychology. After moving to Tehaleh with her husband and two young daughters, she wanted to stay active and make new friends in the neighborhood. She had an interest in fitness but was never consistent with it until joining Evolve Strong in 2017. Since joining, her interest and love for working out really blossomed. Being a member of EVOLVE really helped grow her passion for fitness and gave her the drive to get certified through NASM as a personal trainer.
“I absolutely love watching others push themselves harder than they thought was possible to reach goals that they have set for themselves. I love how EVOLVE offers something for everyone! Each member has their own goals set for themselves, but we are out there reaching them as a family. There is something really special about that!”
“I am a wife and mother of three girls. I am also a NASM Certified personal trainer. My family and I moved to Tehaleh in October of 2018.
I am passionate about health and fitness and I have a strong desire to encourage and motivate others in their journey. Being a coach at EVOLVE Strong Fitness is an absolute joy! I love witnessing the physical and personal growth that our members go through. Being a part of this community is really something that is so special!”

"As my coach at ESF, Jaclyn had been such a motivating and inspiring leader for me, I knew I wanted to take the steps to become a coach and be that leader and role model for someone else. Helping someone to achieve new goals and accomplish things that once seemed out of reach is what drives me and truly fuels my fire!"
Adriane is a coach, a wife, a mother, and an avid runner. Adriane attended the University of North Carolina- Asheville where she played Division I Soccer and was a captain of the team her senior year. Teaching is in Adriane’s bones. Since college, she has worked as both a teacher of group fitness and elementary school students.
After having her first child in 2011, Adriane experienced the all too common problem of finding time for herself. Running and fitness took a position on the back burner. In 2016, Adriane and her family moved to Bonney Lake from Chicago. Following this move, Adriane met Jaclyn and was one of the first to join EVOLVE Strong Fitness. Adriane jumped in head first, attending nearly every class on the schedule. And she began to feel like herself again. As EVOLVE began to grow, Adriane knew she wanted to grow along with it. She achieved her personal training certificate from the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and from there, her journey as an EVOLVE Coach began.
Eric is a father of 4, former collegiate athlete, US Army combat veteran, and currently trains soldiers on tactics and technical matters pertaining to combat vehicles. He enjoys fishing, jiu-jitsu, working with his hands, and spending time with his family. Eric has been competing in and training others in sports and fitness for nearly 30 years.
For Eric, the possibilities of what a human can create with weight training really hit home in 1993 after purchasing a copy of Flex magazine featuring now infamous black and white photos of six-time Mr. Olympia, Dorian Yates. This lifelong love of football and the newly formed passion for weight lifting led Eric on a nearly 30-year love affair with strength and conditioning that has included multiple collegiate sports, extreme military training, long-distance running, powerlifting, strongman, highland games, and jiu-jitsu.
If you're looking to lift some heavy stuff, come see Eric at EVOLVE Lift.
“Yoga has been a part of my life since 2015. What started as a way to find a good stretch quickly transformed into something much more. As a mom of three girls and an ICU/ER Nurse, yoga has not only helped me grow in strength and flexibility but also taught me to live more mindfully on and off the mat.
I completed my 200hr in June of 2019 with an emphasis in Ashtanga. In my classes, I love to create a fun flowing vinyasa where you can challenge and explore physically and mentally. I seek to teach a practice that will leave students feeling refreshed and balanced on and off the mat.”
“Pain and injuries acquired from years of sports and high-intensity training led me to yoga in 2016. Immediately, yoga gave me the physical relief I was looking for so I could get back to throwing weights around. After a year of practicing yoga, solely to get back into the gym, I challenged myself to do 1 year of just yoga, nothing more nothing less. What I found was much more than just physical asana, something so impactful that it changed not just who I was physically but who I am as a being. The transformation to becoming no one had begun. In 2019 I took a 200YTT (yoga teacher training) to deepen my practice and share this transformative lifestyle with others. Along with 200YTT, I have additional training in FRCms (functional range conditioning mobility specialists). My goal is to provide others with not just yoga, but functional, attainable yoga for all levels.
Off the mat, I’m married to my best friend who’s also a yoga teacher and together we have 3 children. When I’m not practicing yoga with my partner or transporting kids to some event, I work for King County Medic One as an MICP (mobile intensive care paramedic). I challenge you to be your best self.”
“If you are depressed you are living in the past.
If you are anxious you are living in the future.
If you are at peace you are living in the present.”
Kelly grew up in Michigan and attended Michigan State University. Go Green! She and her family relocated to the PNW in 2017. Fitness has always been an important part of her life but more so after having children. She enjoys running, hiking, yoga and of course never misses an Evolve Bootcamp class!
“When I first joined EVOLVE in September 2018 I finally found the sense of community that I was missing. Meeting new people, having fun, being outside, encouraging others all while achieving my fitness goals was the answer for me! I feel like I am in the best shape both physically and mentally because of Evolve Strong Fitness. Having the opportunity to coach and motivate others to reach their health and fitness goals makes my heart happy!”
