Polar Plunge? More Like Solar Plunge.


We at The Rise have a tradition of spending our New Year’s morning – or at least a minute or two of it – running, hopping, and dunking in the Atlantic Ocean off Coney Island. That’s right – it’s the SIXTH annual Rise Polar Plunge!

On January 1st at 9:30 AM it’ll be 57 degrees and partly cloudy. That’s about 40 degrees warmer than it was last year.

There won’t be any snow this time around!

If you’ve never partaken in our little tradition, this is the year to do it! You can tell everyone you ran into the Atlantic on New Year’s Day, and I guarantee nobody will try to downplay your accomplishment. They’ll probably just tell you that you’re crazy, and that’s okay. We like crazy.


A Risey Morning

Make sure to start 2019 with us at 6:30 AM for a New Years-themed Brooklyn Badass workout! We’ll get coffee and chat about our resolutions (or not) before taking the train down to Coney Island for another workout. Then we’ll plunge, and finally we’ll all sit down for a delicious breakfast at Tom’s Coney Island. The full schedule is below:
