KIREI

Owner & Founder

Kirei’s mission is building strong, healthy bodies.  She has coached 1000’s students and clients during her lifetime career in fitness, martial arts and yoga.   Kirei’s #1 core value is real health.  She is passionate about offering strength training as the most powerful anti-aging tool available.  With absolute trust in her staff, she is confident that you will leave your workout feeling strong and knowing you’ve done something incredible for your body and overall health.

ALANNA

Managing Director

As Evolved Strength’s full-time operations manager and the Kelowna location’s owner, Alanna is a top advocate for our strength training protocol as fundamental to a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Based in Kelowna, she handles day to day operations at all of our locations,
oversees hiring and training, and is always exploring new ways to evolve the business. Whether offering support, training, and guidance to our team or laying groundwork for business expansion, Alanna definitely has a full plate. Starting her health and fitness career in commercial gyms, she knows how damaging traditional gym culture can be both to mental and physical wellbeing. Alanna loves Evolved Strength’s emphasis on listening to and feeling good in your body. Alanna’s relocation to Kelowna not only established Evolved Strength’s expansion out west, but was also an exploration of her personal growth. Born and raised in Calgary, she was beginning to feel that Calgary was becoming too big of a city for her liking. She is grateful for the opportunity that came with the business expansion. At Evolved Strength we are thrilled to have Alanna to look to for guidance and leadership, as she steers both with a knowledgable and compassionate hand.

JAKE

Trainer - Kelowna

Jake grew up in a small town in Manchester until he was 22 and made the official move to Canada. During his childhood, he spent a lot of time travelling back & forth between the UK & Canada and credits this changing environment with his ability to find common ground with almost anyone. Making the move to Kelowna & establishing himself here is something he is proud of. Jake’s passion for wellness was sparked by his own desire to live a healthier life. He is constantly seeking out new knowledge to broaden his perspective. Despite being serious about fitness & nutrition, Jake follows a balanced approach & still enjoys the occasional pizza night in, usually in the company of his little pomchi - Toby! Jake’s training style can be described as ‘cool as a cucumber’, but from his experience working with hundreds of clients, he knows everyone is motivated differently. He is there to be your best friend, cheerleader, or drill sergeant! Clients will always leave the studio after a session with Jake with shaky muscles & feeling tons of support. Jake feels the Evolved workout is like a guided meditation, in which you are dialled in and completely focused on your breathe. He has noticed big strength gains and feels more confident with his form during any workout he does! Jake is always open to feedback and wants you to have your best workout every week!"
