The Rise Goes Live!


BIG things are happening at The Rise this week!  Per the usual, today’s workout in Washington Square Park was a sweaty and fun time, filled with more than enough high fives and smiles.  If you didn’t make it out to Monday’s workout, make sure you come out to Bryant Park this Wednesday. Alex Denis of CBS is scheduled to do a LIVE segment covering our wokout.

This is where YOU come in – we need everyone to come out and show how amazing and awesome The Rise is!  But wait, there’s more! Many of our super star Risers pledged to do some crazy and amazing things if enough people just show up.  Here are just a few of their pledges:

“If 50+ people show up, I will submit myself to a water balloon firing squad.” – AB

“If 75+ people show up, I will shave The Rise logo into my chest.” -Chris L. (don’t worry, he has hair to spare).

“If more than 75 people show up, I have to sing “I’m a little teapot” with a burpee in between each verse while standing in the middle of the Washington Square Park fountain from the end of the workout photo until the last person leaves to go to oatmeals (or 15 min, whichever comes first).” -Anthony

“I pledge to handstand walk around fountain @WSQ/Bryant park when 50+ people show up, Happy to be a moving target for waterguns/balloons etc.” – Jono

So what are you waiting for?  Make this Wednesday your day to start working out with The Rise.  I promise you will love it so much that you will come back and get to see these awesome Risers follow through on their pledges!

Anthony is almost as good at singing "I"m a little tea pot" as he is at doing burpees

Jono is basically a super hero, so doing handstands around the fountain shouldn't be a problem

We love AB, but it would be fun to see her get hit with water balloons!

Will Chris L. still be smiling when The Rise logo is shaved into his chest? (probably)
