Cutting Edge Facility

Evolution Healthcare & Fitness is located on the corner of SE Ankeny Street and SE 9th Avenue (immediately east of the Doug Fir Lounge). We are proud to be in the most central Portland location possible.  The building is over 7,000 square feet.  Half of this area has been dedicated to meeting your healthcare needs while the other half is a cutting edge training facility.

If you are visiting us for healthcare, you will enter and check in via a comfortable reception and waiting room. Our reception staff will check you in and invite you to relax with a cup of hot tea while you wait for your appointment. We have a total of eight different treatment rooms, each staffed with healthcare professionals practicing a diverse set of specializations to help meet your needs.

If the purpose of your visit includes a trip to our fitness facility, you will again be welcomed by our professional staff and allowed to check into your session.  Immediately upon entering, you will see an expansive open gym area where we conduct personal training, group classes, and host educational seminars and presentations on a variety of pertinent topics. On your left will be a large glass door, inside of which is Portland’s only Altitude Training Room. Inside this 650 square foot room are a variety of different cardio machines and the ClimbStation, a climbing treadwall, and the only one of its kind inside of an Altitude Training Room in the world!  Evolution’s training facility contains cutting edge functional training equipment along with a selection of cardiovascular machines to conduct high intensity intervals and raise your heart rate.  The west wall of the training area has a turf track for explosive strength training exercises.  Our high ceilings and natural light provide and open feeling to our training area.  A high quality sound system and 200 inch projection screen will provide ample resources to allow clients to enjoy music while they train and the ability for our personal trainers and healthcare practitioners to present seminars on the topics to help improve your knowledge of health and fitness.  Three standalone bathrooms afford our clients the ability to clean up after a workout, and don’t worry we also have towel service. Note we have no initiation fees or membership fees, the fitness facility is all based on the simple principle of a punch card.

Kind Words from Walter H.

“For nearly 7 years, I have been a patient of Dr. Brad Farra. His treatment tools and techniques target aches, pains and sore spots leading to a quick recovery. I have never received better treatment! Additionally, he promotes healthy habits and lifestyle choices for preventative maintenance. Treatment with Dr. Farra is also educational including tips in training and nutrition. My wife is also an advocate for the staff at Evolution Healthcare and Fitness. She benefits from chiropractic care and acupuncture on a regular basis. Through my experience, Evolution Healthcare and Fitness is highly recommended for any Northwest lifestyle.”


Training Value from Benjamin C.

“I’ve been using the altitude room for workouts and high intensity interval training classes 1-3 times per weeks for 9 months. Noticeable improvements on endurance. Great place to simulate high altitudes. Was only planning on using Evolution for a few months during winter but I keep going because I get quality workouts in the altitude room. Hours and locations are convenient. Staff is great. Machines are always working, never out of order. Price is very reasonable too. No long-term commitments, only pay for what you use so very flexible.”
