Randi Walz’s dream was to one day open a gym. She has it with Evolution Gym. But when Walz — a personal trainer with more than 20 years of experience — and her husband, Shane, opened their gym, she said they always knew they wanted it to be a CrossFit affiliate. On Jan. 15, Walz’s dream finally became a reality. Evolution is now one of three gyms in southwest North Dakota that is CrossFit affiliated. “When we decided to open the gym, I really wanted to offer that one-on-one coaching that I love about training,” Walz said.
