our founder

Sebastian Albors

Sebastian was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 2011 at 20 years old. His early experience with his doctors did not sit well with him. He has prescribed medication but offered no guidance on how to lead a healthier lifestyle to manage his condition. Sebastian took it upon himself to learn about how his lifestyle – exercise and nutrition – could help him limit his medication and control his Diabetes. In large part he was successful and to this day keeps his condition well-controlled through lifestyle and in turn has prevented any complications often associated with Diabetes. Sebastian became passionate about health and made it his mission to teach others how to take their health into their own hands through their lifestyle. Soon after, he found CrossFit and fell in love with the training methodology and supportive community. Sebastian founded CrossFit Manta Ray, now Evolve Fitness Clearwater, in 2013 and hasn’t looked back. Sebastian is CrossFit Level 2 Trainer and has also earned CrossFit Gymnastics and CrossFit Kids Certifications.

Jon "JR" Rivard

Coach

Jon Rivard (AKA Coach JR) achieved his NASM Personal Trainer Certification in 2021 and has been striving to become the best of the best every day since. Coaching became a passion that manifested from his own struggle with living an unhealthy life.

He is intimately familiar with the pain and struggle associated with loss of function/ability due to both medical diagnoses and long hours at a desk. Now, he has found a home coaching at Evolve and is excited to help others through their own journey with health, fitness, and weight management.

JR graduated from Notre Dame in 2012 with a degree in Finance and built a career for himself as a commercial mortgage underwriter in NYC. While working through a series of medical issues stemming from a ruptured spleen, health/weight struggles, and general melancholy he decided to cut ties with his finance career/lifestyle and focus on his health. He moved to Florida in February/March 2020, and found a surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic to help end his cycle of surgeries. While pre-habilitating his body before the surgery, JR found his new career path. Rebuilding his strength after the surgery, studying for his personal training certification, and building his coaching experience confirmed he’s made the right choice.
