ReEvolve moment:
Growing up in sports and athletic programs, Jake loved being active.  But, he hated working out.  The traditional globo-gyms he was brought up in bored him, and exercise seemed to feel more like a duty. After high school, Jake knew he needed two things: a way to fill the void the competitive sports always provided, and something to keep him in shape (and whip him back into it - first year University isn’t easy on anyone!).  After playing around with intramural sports with some friends, a CrossFitter invited Jake to try out a WOD.  He was hooked, and his process to reevolve° began.
 
Favorite Lift: Clean
Passions: Entrepreneurship, Crossfit, sports, helping others, design, fashion

ReEvolve moment:
At the height of her veganism (after two years of struggling with poor digestion, depression, and exhaustion), Jenna realized her purpose for going vegan -- clean, sustainable eating and living -- was actually contradicting her lifestyle.  Eating more than 100 grams of soy protein each day, and CrossFitting six times a week, she was exhausted and frustrated. Jenna finally listened to her body and instincts, and started to reevolve° by simplifying her eating habits by incorporating meat and food that made her body feel good, and providing her body with the proper fuel it needed.
 
Favorite Lift: Deadlift
Passions: Food, cooking and baking, yoga, lifting, helping others, children, film, writing, theatre


Simply put, ReEvolve was born out of two CrossFitters trying to figure out how they could give back to a community that had dramatically changed their lives.  Jenna had finished her post-secondary studies in 2009, and Jake was just on the brink of finishing his HBA; they both realized they needed to get some sort of life-plan in action.  The thought of being stuck in a 9 to 5 for thirty years with no freedom, passion, or time to pursue what they love, was insidious.  It was no longer an option.  ReEvolve spawned from an urge - an urge to find a marriage between their passions (CrossFit, healthy living, nutrition) and a job that could accommodate that lifestyle. At ReEvolve we don’t work to play; our work is our play.  This is a message we want to share with anyone curious about reverting back to a lifestyle where exercise was play and nutrition was important, but neither was tedious or a chore.
