About Evolution Fitness: Evolution Fitness is the brainchild of two Southampton High School alumni, Jason Cofield of the Shinnecock Indian Nation and Scott Wilson of Southampton. The two made a pact in their senior year of 1986 to one day own a local business together. The original idea was to be Real Estate tycoons, but that changed to nightclub owners, then gym owners, which is where the dream, 25 years in the making, finally came to fruition.

The fitness industry is constantly evolving… what’s old is new and what’s new is Evolution,” says Evolution co-owner Jason Cofield. “We offer the best of the best in every facet of fitness to stay ahead of the fitness curve and become a premier agent in the fitness industry.” Jason has 20 years’ experience in the fitness industry as a personal trainer and gym manager at some of the largest fitness facilities in the world.
