Jon "JR" Rivard
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.
