Notorious for dressing in the latest Lululemon apparel, Evan’s expertise extends far beyond looking the part. The first person in the door and the last person to leave, Evan has a contagious passion for fitness and the creativity to back it up— constantly reinventing his workout design, checking in with his clients daily, and mentoring new and prospective trainers. On weekends, you’ll find Evan hiking Dog Mountain with his shiba inu Samurai or cheering on the Michigan State Spartans.

A former collegiate XC/ track athlete and current competitor, Laura is a runner to her core. While you will most likely hear the latest track-geek stats (and tales of toddler motherhood) between sets, no mileage will be forced on you. A personal trainer since 2004, Laura pulls from her extensive fitness knowledge and experience to create an effective training plan unique to each client. At the heart of Laura’s training philosophy is the belief that fitness can enhance anyone’s wellbeing and act as a key component to leading a happy and balanced life.

How do you unwind after work? Family dance party in our kitchen.

As Vive’s young gun, Evan was unjustly nicknamed “Little Evan”. Take one look at his overhead lunges and bent-over rows, and you’ll quickly learn there’s nothing little about him. This Portland-native packs a punch—inside and outside of the gym. As a Master Scuba Diver, Evan takes his passion for health and fitness outdoors, dabbling in spear fishing and planning to get his “A” license through Sky Dive Oregon to jump solo this summer.

Favorite Sandwich in town: The Philly Steak at Taste Tickler

Best Halloween costume: In 2011, when I was Leonidus from 300

Favorite Portland bridge: The Broadway—I don't know why, but I love that bridge
