The Rise Takes the Polar Bear Plunge


Most people spend New Year’s day sleeping in and recovering from the previous night’s festivities.  Here at The Rise, we spent New Year’s day a little differently.  We kicked off 2015 with a workout by the Flatiron building, followed by another workout on the boardwalk of Coney Island, and then topped it all off with our 2nd annual polar bear plunge.

Starting at our usual time (6:30 AM), we gathered for a classic desk of cards followed by dealer’s choice:

Then, we hopped on the Q train and headed down to Coney Island for our second workout, which followed the Brooklyn Badass format:

Finally, we ended the day with a dip in the ocean:
