2. What do you hope to achieve through RISE? When I first joined RISE over 2 years ago, I was getting ready to go to Aruba for my 50th B-day and like everyone else…was looking to lose a few pounds. Since then, I have lost close to 20 lbs. and am probably in the best shape I have ever been in. Now it’s all about maintaining the level of fitness that RISE has helped me achieve over these past couple years.
3. What is your favorite RISE exercise? That is hard to say…..I pretty much like them all, even the dreaded burpees!! DB snatch, wall balls and kettle ball swings are probably my top 3.
4. What RISE exercise do you least like? If I have to pick a least favorite exercise, I guess it would be the Ski Erg–seems boring to me compared to everything else.
