Founded by Joe Cross after the phenomenal success of his documentary Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. Reboot is a socially conscious health and wellness company that offers support, encouragement, community, media and tools to everyday people (like you and me). The company helps people achieve and maintain weight loss, health and wellness by simply adding more fruits and vegetables into their diets.
The Reboot Team
Joe Cross is the founder and CEO of Reboot. His personal story of transformation was chronicled in the documentary Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead, which has been seen by more than 10 MM people worldwide. The incredible response to screenings of the film inspired Joe to create Reboot with Joe, making the tools, information and support available to enable anyone to reclaim their well-being. He’s currently filming a new documentary and spends time between Australia and the U.S., always with a juice in hand. Follow him on twitter @JoetheJuicer and read his full story.
As Reboot’s Financial Controller, Alex oversees a majority of the company’s financials including bill payment and monthly earnings, in addition to human resources tasks like employee benefits. Fruits and vegetables have been a part of Alex’s life for a long time because she grew up with a large vegetable garden, maintained by her mother and grandmother, that gave her constant access to organic produce. Keeping up with her Polish tradition, Alex’s favorite vegetable is beet in the form of borscht or juice. Alex enjoys trying many of Joe’s juice recipes to help her stay healthy as a mom to her two young children.
