“Fitness is the pealing away of the idea of what you think you are, and exposing the truth through failure of who you are, which is perfect in every way!”
Ky Evans is one of the most elite fitness trainers in the world and one of the new stars of the NBC show “STRONG” which premieres on April 14th at 8/7c.
Ky Evans is a trained ballet dancer-turned scientist who is obsessed with the idea that fitness is the ultimate form of human expression. His training patterns take natural functional movement to a whole new level. With degrees in Exercise Science & Biomechanics (with minors in Philosophy & Ballet) Evans started his journey when he began working with visionary Sebastien Lagree, who introduced him to his Megaformer and taught him the Lagree Method. Soon after, Evans built his own following and has become one of the most sought after group instructors in Los Angeles. His classes currently have a month long wait list. His clientele includes television and film personalities, professional athletes and Olympians.
NBC’s “STRONG” is a ten episode fitness competition show hosted by Professional volleyball player and fitness expert Gabrielle Reece. The series showcases ten women from all walks of life, each looking to improve herself mentally and physically – joining with ten of the most elite male fitness trainers in the nation. The winning team will take home a significant cash prize of up to $500,000, which is a result of their overall performance.
Evans incorporates the art of expression with the science of performance, creating his own unique training philosophy or, “Kylosophy.” Evans’ goal is to help his clients uncover what is already true – that there is only one you and in that, lies your real strength. The once shy, chubby, bullied kid from Detroit, who was often self-conscious about his immigrant family, has blossomed into a philosopher and fitness guru.
Evans has been featured in over 40 fitness publications and was Shape magazine’s 2014 Hottest Trainer in America. Ky has also been featured in OK Weekly, Self, Shape, ELLE Australia, LA Confidential, DuJour, Bello Magazine, W Magazine, Glamour, Marie Claire, Fitness RX and on E! News, Good Day LA and ABC 7 among others.
