About this pro

Hi I’m Shelley Devine, the founder and Boss Lady of the award winning fitness program, Evolve Bootcamp. With my in-depth, well rounded knowledge of what it takes to keep the human body in peak condition, I love designing EBC programs for those avid fitness enthusiasts who are looking for something different, and are bored with the run of the mill gym scene.

Certified in yoga, kickboxing, Pilates, stress management instruction, I’m also a certified Thai Massage Therapist and Usui Reiki Master. I’ve had the extraordinary experience of teaching internationally self-healing techniques and group exercise. I am a well-established and published journalist who has focused my writing skills on female athletes in combative sports. I’ve worked with both professional athletes and novice beginners.

My passion is to compel Bostonians who take part in Evolve Bootcamp to practice a comprehensive wellness regime by integrating natural, physical movement, conscientious breathing and a positive attitude in their health, fitness and everyday life.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

After an initial consultation over the phone to determine your goals you will be sent an email confirming our first session which will be a fitness assessment test. The email will include an attached 9 page health and waiver form and a list with multiple class rate options . You will be required to fill the health & waiver form out, sign and initial where indicated and send it back via email prior to their fitness assessment test. You will also receive an email from Evolve-BOD which will contain instructions about taking your Resting Heart Rate the morning of your fit test. After we meet I will put a plan together for our next meeting and the next four weeks or 30 days. At the end of 30 days we will re assess your progress and make adjustments where needed.

Ask Shelley About Private Training Packages


How did you get started teaching?

It was more like a calling...people kept asking me to teach them this or that. AND they actually would get owners of gyms to hire me because they wanted to attend a class I taught...from there it lead to outdoor fitness classes because clients wanted to enjoy the parks plus get in a great workout. They really loved the variety I offered in my classes and it was FUN! For the most part my bootcamp, yoga, martial arts classes and healing abilities just evolved and served my clients needs as well as provided me with the privilege to work for myself. I'm very grateful and  I've loved every minute of it!!


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with a full spectrum of clients from complete novice to professional athletes depending on their needs. I've assisted clients in creating healthy lifestyle habits which require exercise and a healthy diet to start.  The most notable clients I've successfully helped have been those recovering from minor sports injuries to rehabilitation after major surgeries. I've also worked with clients suffering from cancer, paralysis, psychiatric disorders, pain management, relationship issues, conception problems, grief, depression and stress management.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Training my first group of mud runners was especially thrilling. We entertained a wonderful sense of camaraderie on this challenging journey we had never competed in for before. The preparation alone was tough but the campers were game for anything I threw at them. They were all so eager and terrified to run their very first 5K with the added mayhem of running in mud and over various  obstacles like mud covered logs, 10 foot wall, and cargo net crawl. The triumph these campers had was nothing short of awesome!
One camper confided later that she always wanted to compete at something but whenever she signed up for anything she would always bag on it at the last minute. It was something that was really bothering her for some time. She was elated to complete her first ever 5K obstacle race and I was humbled by the fact that she overcame such a major obstacle in her mind and I had the fortune to be a part of that. (It took about 24 classes or 2 months to prepare.)


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Having a Yoga Teacher Certification requires 200 hours of hands on training. Being a ranked Martial Artist requires years of dedication and training. Arts like these that take 3,000 years to evolve tend to be highly effective. The paths to fitness are many, but using modern means, works only the body. Anyone can become a personal trainer just by passing a test. But understanding how the human body works requires a holistic approach combining ancient arts with the modern science of functional fitness training. When this approach is taken it serves to achieve a symmetrical human being that includes body, mind and soul!

Most clients are thinking of weight loss or building muscle at first but the more lofty  question should be "how do I want to create a healthy life for myself with my current abilities?" and, is this a professional that can help me achieve that?
