Welcome to the final stretch of Racked Chicago's search for Chicago's hottest trainer. Over the past two weeks, we've been profiling smoking hot candidates who work at local gyms and studios. (Not only do they look hot in spandex, but if you take their classes, you might someday look nearly as good.) Once we've introduced everyone, we'll host a March Madness-style showdown in which you get to vote for your favorite.
Evieanna Santiago (Eve to her clients) went from being a 'pack a day' smoker and drinking every evening to an amateur boxer, NESTA Certified personal trainer and accomplished competitive bodybuilder. Growing up in the Midwest, Eve's gym often held mixed martial arts (MMA) matches and wanted to get in on the action. Eve found a martial arts trainer to take her under his wing and teach her how to box. She soon found the new love of fighting and has continued to win round after round; match after match. Around the turn of the millennium, Evieanna learned how to feed her body correctly and lift weight in ways to become even stronger. She began to compete in bodybuilding competitions and in only her first year of competitive bodybuilding, she competed in four shows, taking first place in two, and second place in another.
Changing her life so drastically through these experiences is when Eve took on the challenge of becoming a personal trainer. Her specialties include all level weightloss, performance training, strength and conditioning and of course bodybuilding. Now calling Evolve Fitness in Roscoe Village home, she helps people see that the right lifestyle choices and motivation are the keys to making whatever goals you want to accomplish become a reality.
