R3VIVE’s Member of the Month, April, 2022
Introducing our Gym M.O.M. (Member of the Month) for April, 2022 … Jenna Tonet!
To describe all the great things about Jenna would require a novel, but we’ll start by stating this honor is long overdue! In a lot of ways, you can say Jenna has been an honorary member of the month since the first day we opened and from the days of working out with us at CrossFit on the Hill.
Jenna is easily one of our most recognizable members, mainly because of how natural it is for her to make everyone who walks in our doors feel welcomed. It’s rare for someone to know every member due to the different hours / classes people take, but everyone knows and loves Jenna!
Aside from her personality, what makes Jenna such a pleasure to coach is her willingness to take to coaching — although she does ask the most questions before and during class =).
There’s no one more deserving of the honor and we’re so glad to have Jenna as part of our community! If you see her around, congratulate her and ask her to tell you the infamous story of her passion for eating hotdogs loaded with mac and cheese 😉

Q: What made you decide to start functional fitness training?
This goes back to 2014! I started a small group training class at a globo gym that included high intensity interval training. I enjoyed both the group class setting and intensity format, so I ended up trying out functional fitness by joining a CrossFit gym in Mission Hill and years later ended up at R3vive. 🙂
Q: Are you a student/working professional/both? What do you do for a living?
I work in the nonprofit sector as a Grants Manager at a community health center in Dorchester.
Q: What are your hobbies/interests outside of the gym?
I enjoy yoga, meditation, trying new coffee shops, spending time with my nieces and nephews (I have 6 in total), cooking, traveling, reading, etc.
Q: What are some of your favorite movements (name up to three)?
Deadlifts, L-sits, pistols, etc. Anything that involves a lot of core engagement!
Q: What are your least favorite movements?
Wall balls and thrusters.
Q: What movements do you want to improve at?
Always the olympic lifts – snatches and clean & jerks.
Q: What advice do you have for someone considering our gym?
Give us a try! It may be intimidating to try at first, especially with any of the barbell movements, but the class setting and encouragement of all members is very motivating.
Q: What’s your favorite “cheat” food?
Doughnuts. Or maybe pizza.
Q: What is your guilty pleasure?
While many know that I am all about Whole30/Paleo/etc, I do like to sneak in my treats when no one is watching 😉
Q: Do you have any nicknames?
The two current ones: “JENNA!!!” and “Core Queen”
Q: Tell us an interesting fact that we probably don’t know about you!
That when I spent a semester of college in Florence, Italy, I went skydiving over the Swiss Alps!
