"I never EVER expected to find myself at a boot camp, much less enjoying it.. But, here I am, in my first week at Shelley's Evolve Boot Camp and I am absolutely loving it. Each class is a killer workout, but so fun and so motivating! I look forward to the classes and see quick results."  ~ Ellen M.

" I have never been so dedicated to anything before! I can't believe I'm standing in the pouring rain doing bootcamp instead of sitting in a bar having a drink on a Friday night !"~ Chelsea R.

"We just wanted to thank you for the phenomenal experience of energy, wellness and fun that we had at your incredibly creative bootcamp. Julio and I truly loved it, and everyone certainly notices the results in our trip to Venezuela's beaches."~ Christina A.

~ Kate R.

"Shelley is a great instructor.Its a very hard workout but she can adjusts for us wimps out there too."
~ Shannon B.

"A great total body workout, stretching, sprints, muscle conditioning, pushing yourself beyond what you think you can do, lots of laughs and a fabulous instructor. That is what I got from Shelley's bootcamp class.A great way to change up your routine or jumpstart your routine."~ Jennifer D.

"Shelley is an awesome trainer. I miss her having had to move. I have never been able to find a better fitness trainer."~ Nanci C.

"I've done Evolve Bootcamp for two summers (and plan to go into fall/winter this year!) I LOVE getting up at 5am to get to Shelley's bootcamp...and that says a lot :) Every workout is different and I love switching up the locations/exercises."~ Allison D.

" Happy July 4! I wanted to let you know that I'm moving back to California (just left Boston, driving cross country). I wish I had the chance to see you (and take another class) because I wanted to tell you how much bootcamp helped me. Putting myself through the workouts and finding out that I could do it gave me more confidence in myself, including the confidence to move back to CA and transition to a new career. Bootcamp also made me so much more athletic and health conscience (I had never been athletic before). Thank you!!!"~ Gen L.

"1000 times better than going to the gym, Evolve Bootcamp is awesome and addictive in the best way!!"~ Susan K.

"It's been 2 years now and I can't think of a better way to start each day than with a morning workout with Shelley on the Common."~ Jennifer L.

"Excellent workout and worth every penny!"  ~ Leigh C.

“Shelley Devine, she is a master of bootcamp. This is the best workout group I joined.  She keeps it fun, active, different and you get results.  Shelley is more than a trainer, she knows YOU.”  How to keep you engaged no matter what level you perform.  If you never tried a bootcamp, this is the one to join.  There is no fear and she ensures you get more than what you paid for with results!  Her bootcamp is #1.  You can't find a better deal.  I am glad I know this fine lady and I would recommend her to everyone.  The toughest part is getting to camp, you will be glad you did it.  Be warned, you will be hooked and will need to join her bootcamp over and over as part of your routine.  Seriously, this lady will help you get results in 4 short weeks!”  ~ Pamela G. (1/8/2014)

"Awesome experience.  Shelley kept me challenged and coming back for more.  She encourages you without barking out orders and quickly comes up with any appropriate swaps to prevent injuries.  The location is also great--certainly beats the ordinary gym workout.  Definitely the most consistent I've ever been with working out."~Alex S.

"This is a truly amazing experience. You work your butt off and leave every day smiling. Shelley is amazing!" ~Vawnya N.

"Hey Shelley!
I just wanted to thank you again for this boot camp. During the session, I didn't do too much distance running, but over the past couple of days I've been out for longer runs and notice a huge improvement in how strong and fast I feel! It's awesome to notice a difference like that in such a short amount of time! I had a great time being able to work out with you and our very varied group. Thanks again and keep it up!" ~ Brittany L.

"By far the BEST Bootcamp in Boston... and I've tried a few. Shelley's workouts are dynamic, motivating, educational and challenging. She mixes up the exercises and really focuses on movements that provide equivalent results to workouts I have done using machines or weights at the gym. I felt and saw results after just a few classes. Shelley really pays attention to form and demonstrates each movement and gives tips on how to do the workouts safely. I cannot think of a better way to get to know the green spaces in Boston than working out with Shelley and fellow bootcampers!”   ~ Emily F.

"I never would have thought I would be *glad* to get out of bed at 6 a.m., get my ass kicked by a woman half my size and then head to work three times a week. But alas--I LOVE it. Shelley does a great job. She is the definition of tough love; she will simultaneously be your biggest cheerleader and push you beyond your perceived limits. She has a ton of energy and keeps the workouts varied and exciting each time. I am absolutely addicted and will keep coming back. "  ~ Juliana S.

“I've been going to Shelley's workouts for about a month now, and they are great.  There's a ton of variety, from sprinting up hills to jumping on benches to throwing medicine balls to pull-ups at the playground.  It's quite lovely to workout in the morning in the public garden or on the Common - beautiful spots in the city that I don't visit often enough.  And Shelley is unfailingly positive with everyone.  I was in pretty good shape when I started, but I'm in even better shape now - I'm sore in a good way after her workouts, and I've lost those five last pounds that were plaguing me.  Give it a shot, challenge yourself, enjoy the early morning in the heart of the city, and get in great shape!” 
~ Neva C.

"Shelley is sooo good at making tough workouts and motivating people." ~ Vincent Y.

"I did Evolve Bootcamp this summer near Tufts University. It was great! It was nice to get a really good workout in after work. Everyone is super nice and supportive. It is also great because Evolve runs free group workout occasionally on the weekend. Overall a good experience."~ Emily T.

" Love It!"~ Emily Z.

“If you're looking for a personal trainer, I highly recommend Shelley. I took bootcamp classes with her one summer, and I can personally attest to the fact that she makes getting an ass-kicking workout tons of fun.” ~Shanna Barrow

Don't keep it a secret, Let us know why you evolve...

"Shelley is fantastic. I've been coming to Evolve Bootcamp for over a year now, only taking a break for the winter months. When I first joined I expected what bootcamp sounded like---a military style workout with an instructor yelling at you while working out. I couldn't have been more wrong. Shelley has a wonderful way of pushing you to your limits and keeping you engaged the whole class, all with a smile on her face! I don't think I've ever looked forward to a workout as much as bootcamp. I'm hooked, and I can't wait to come back in the spring. There is a great sense of community here, and it's wonderful to be exercising outside. Definitely give it a shot!" Dana Ferruzzi(Yelp)
"I've been a year round Evolve Bootcamper for three years! That says it all... I feel strong and fit and Shelley gets much of the credit. She changes the bootcamp fitness challenges all the time and she organizes fun weekend outings all over greater Boston and beyond to keep things interesting (for herself and the campers) .... hiking in the Blue Hills; running and yoga in the Arboretum and Castle Island; Sky Zone Trampoline in Norwood; mud runs, mini triathlons and I hear kayaking to come soon!! I've made great new friends and the work outs etc. help me keep a balance for self/work/family. Hoorah! Show No Weakness!!" Susan McDermott (Boston A-List)

"Evolve Bootcamp is incredible.  Shelley is supportive and challenging at the same time! I've seen great results and I'm stronger each and every day!"

Jimmy Tran  (Boston A-List)

"When was the last time as an adult

 have you run as fast as you could (without anyone chase you) or did a round of leapfrog or played dodge ball or threw a tire around? I am assuming that unless you have been to bootcamp the answer is "never" -- but being at Evolve is like being back in gym class, but way more fun! Shelley is a ball of energy and is so supportive and also tough as nails! No two workouts are the same and she always keeps you guessing as to what is going to be next.....which is part of the fun. I absolutely love working out with Shelley and the rest of the folks in my group -- trust me the workout is hard and high energy but they are so much fun! I have never ever been bored in class and no two sessions have been the same. I love being outdoors, meeting new people and oh yeah....looking and feeling great is a huge bonus as well! Who knew working out could be this much fun :) " Melissa Gillespie (Google+)
