Rise RECAP: Apr. 16 – Apr. 20


What a week! Rachel Tavel returned to the Willy B, TWO Rise leaders had birthdays, and unlike most weeks, people actually SMILED in the photos! (jk we’re always smiling)

Check out the recap!


Monday – HIIT

When it’s pouring, workouts are anything but boring. These brave souls tackled a HIIT workout in a torrential downpour! 20 seconds of exercise, followed by 10 seconds of being rained upon.


Tuesday – BK Body Circuit

Tuesday was an extra special day for the Brooklyn Badasses as we celebrated Coach Chad’s birthday with a C.H.A.D. workout! If you’re wondering what that even means, it’s Core HIIT Anything goes Dash to the finish! We wrapped up with a 39 second mountain pose to set great intentions for Chad’s 39th year.  We celebrated with pie in your face (obviously) and while we may have forgotten to do the birthday rap, Chad rebounded nicely by solving the jumble over coffee at Hungry Ghost!

Join us at 6:30 AM every Tuesday at Grand Army Plaza!


Tuesday – Queens Warriors

So many warriors! Our cores, arms, hearts, and minds were put to the test in MacDonald Park.

Summer is coming (believe us). Grow with the Queens Warriors as we hop into warmer weather!


Wednesday – Core Body Boot Camp

When your birthday falls on a Wednesday and you’re a Wednesday leader…expect a party! Gooooo Hélène!

(That’s right – we had TWO birthdays in Rise leadership this week.)

Nice birthday ribbon Hélène!

We should really be wearing party hats at every workout tbh.


Thursday – Kings of Queens

An unexpectedly rainy Thursday morning in Queens, with some new and old faces showing up. There were talks of investing in a new die since this one seems to always roll on the same two sides! We also brought back some Bulgarian Split Squats to the pyramid and paired it with the #ClassicQueens dips.

Join the Kings of Queens royalty every Thursday in MacDonald Park – 6:30 AM!


Friday – Hills

Our Hills workout was Anything Goes! Cardmaster Chad (not to be confused with Grandmaster Flash) dealt the cards and our runners dutifully completed the corresponding exercises! (Rachel) Tavel brought her coworker Sam, who absolutely crushed it. Welcome to the club!

Lots of love in the Friday family photo!


One last thing – a little checklist before you move on with your day:

  • All our workouts are listed here.
  • Make sure to like The Rise’s Facebook page, and join the NYC Facebook group where all the social activities happen!
  • Follow us on Instagram and Twitter.
  • Subscribe to our mailing list here.
  • Bring a friend. Heck, bring ten friends! We love social media, but nothing gets the job done like classic word of mouth.

RISE UP!
