Meet Team Wednesday!


The Rise is growing bigger and stronger each week! To accommodate our growth, we’ve formed “teams” (Team Monday, Team Wednesday and Team Friday) to organize and lead each workout.  Even though we are changing things up a bit, The Rise will continue to be free, fun and open to everyone!

These are the fitness rockstars that make up Team Wednesday:
