Founder, Evolution of Man

Tim Walker

London personal trainer and health and fitness author Tim Walker is Founder and Head Trainer at Evolution of Man Fitness, based in the City’s Square Mile. Since leaving university in 2003 with a sport and exercise science degree Tim has continually honed his training methods specifically targeting men whose main aim is to get a lean athletic body whilst living and working in the city. “I am a personal trainer who has been training guys like you all over London, and most recently specifically in the square mile, for 10 years and even more importantly, I think, I am a man in his 30’s who cares what he looks like and how I feel about myself.” 99% of London-based gyms are made up entirely of exercise machines all designed to look good and allow for a comfortable workout, but being comfortable is not how Brad Pitt got ready for Fight Club or Hugh Jackman got ready to play Wolverine. If you ever go behind the scenes to see how the Hollywood elite personal trainers are training, it is almost a guarantee that there would not be a ‘pec deck’ or a sit down bike in sight! At Evolution of Man, there is no treadmill, but there is a sprinting track armed with a Prowler (‘Google’ this horror and think rugby scrum machine), a sled to drag, strongman bars, beer kegs to lift, up to 150kg of tractor tyres to drag, sand bags to lift, carry and throw; and sledge hammers to wield – that would be classed as unconventional anywhere else, but then this personal training program has nothing whatsoever to do with obeying convention.
