Neesh (Neeshie) Evans (They/She)
Where are you from originally: Whiteland, Indiana
What brought you to Minnesota:
My Partner (Sterling) grew up in Anoka and we desperately wanted a new adventure. We chose Minneapolis because he had fond memories of growing up here, and I jumped at the chance to get out of Indiana.
How did you get involved in fitness:
I have always been active. I was always in a sport growing up. When choosing a major for college I knew I wanted to help people and I did not want to sit at a desk all day. I chose exercise science because it gave me an avenue to practice athletics and inspire others to fall in love with movement as well.
Why do you love to coach:
To help people. Create a healthy community. Meet new fascinating people. Share my love of movement with others.
What do you like to do when you’re not working out:
I love to read fiction novels, go to the park with my dogs, go out for dinner and drinks with my partner, hiking and water activities with friends, and just chill and be still (working on this one).
What is a fact we may not know about you?
My newest and most addicting hobby is pole dancing. I am entranced by the sensual/magnetic athleticism that pole requires. It is like nothing else I have ever done in my life and I am so in love with it!
