Exciting News For Evolve!

Evolve is growing ... AGAIN!

It is my pleasure to announce that we will be adding to the coaching staff for the 2016/2017 season.


Please join me in welcoming Tori Hamill and Teresa Telford in their new roles as assistant multi-sport coaches. Tori and Teresa will be joining Coach Lenny and Samantha to assist in the growing need for endurance coaching in the Midwest and beyond. Both Tori and Teresa bring unique talents to Evolve and will be accepting a limited number of new athletes starting this coming month.

Tori has been a member of Evolve since its inception – as an Evolve athlete Tori has undergone a huge transformation and is enthusiastic to share this with her clients. She brings years of experience as a multiport athlete – in fact she started swimming at the young age of five. As an athlete Tori has competed at all distances from 5k to a 50 mile ultra-run, sprints to Ironman. She is a focused athlete who approaches each challenge with excitement and a desire to do her best. Tori’s strengths as an athlete will aid her in coaching by supporting her athletes in both the physical and mental aspects of the sport. Her close attention to detail are a natural fit with the core principles on which Evolve was founded. Tori will be taking on new athletes at all race distances and at all levels.

Teresa joined Evolve as an athlete in 2014 and had a banner year as podium finisher at IM LV posting a PR in her 4th Ironman.  Teresa comes to the coaching staff with over 130 triathlons under her belt. She brings a wealth of racing experience which she will be able to impart on her athletes. Teresa will assist her athletes in achieving their best by assisting them through whatever challenge arises – her calm demeanor and delivery will assure their success. Teresa’s level of organization and passion for sport will be huge assets to the coaching staff. Teresa will be taking on athletes at all levels/distances with a particular focus on beginner athletes and master’s clients.

We will be continuing our commitment to individualized coaching and to creating strong relationships between our coaches and athletes. As we have done in the past, all coaches will work in a collaborative setting under the guiding principles that Evolve was founded on. At Evolve we strongly believe that it is the relationships that make for the best coach/athlete experience and the addition of staff will not only allow us to help more athletes succeed, but also offer new opportunities for a coach/athlete fit.

Finally, we would like to thank all of our athletes past and present. It is only because of their successes as athletes that we are able to succeed as coaches. Their drive and commitment to reach their goals speak for themselves. Without all of you them would not be standing here today ready to grow, innovate, and meet the needs of the triathlon community. Thank you is simply not enough!

2017 – It’s go time!
