"Through many years of an unhealthy relationship with food, having two kids and not spending any time for myself (mom guilt!), I had my spine fused in 2014 and began my journey into the bodybuilding world.  At first, it was just developing a healthy understanding of food to fuel my body and learning how to train in order to grow, but it soon turned into a passion.  Even though I was so happy with my newfound passion, there was still a piece missing... That's where RISE came into my life.  Bodybuilding can be such an individual and self-centered sport, but that's not what it was to me.  I was finally free and happy and wanted to share my joy and knowledge and passion with others who felt the same way!  RISE is the family I never had and am so thankful for each and every relationship I have been blessed enough to develop.  I do not know where I would be had I not found such an amazing, supportive family who I can call on as we all grow deeper as individuals spiritually, mentally and physically." - Corry



"Being part of the Rise family has changed my life completely.  I know I have a family that supports me 100% and doesn't judge me.  It has encouraged me to do things I never thought would be possible, not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally." - Rafael
