RISE FITNESS RISE-OLUTION CHALLENGE FAQ
Can I pick my team for the RISE-OLUTION Challenge?
You can pick a partner for this Challenge. Teams will be assembled by the RISE Challenge leads and then communicated at the kick-off. This gives everyone a chance to know someone on a team as well as meet other challengers in the RISE Community! If you are uncomfortable with this arrangement, please contact us prior to January 1, 2017.
How does the Team Challenge work?
You will receive daily points for developing healthy habits such as drinking water, exercising, eating certain foods, and keeping a food journal. You will also receive points for pounds and inches lost. If you are uneasy about being on a team but would still like to participate in the Challenge, please contact us.
What is the deadline to sign up?
Sign up for the RISE-OLUTION Challenge before January 5, 2017, at 10am. No exceptions. We need time to assemble the teams and have them available for the kick-off meeting on Saturday, January 7th!
What if I'm a beginner and new to RISE Fitness + RISE Cycle classes?
If you are new to RISE and are uneasy about jumping into a class, please let us know. We are happy to help you find a class that fits and to make sure the instructor is informed of where you are in your fitness journey, and can provide extra attention to form and modifications when needed.
What is included in the Meal Plan option?
You will receive recipes for 5 days per week, for both Breakfast and Dinner (with a family friendly option) for the entire 8 weeks. Menus are distributed in advance for planning purposes. Additionally, you’ll receive snack and lunch ideas. Food is not included in this option. If you are interested in adding food, Alicia Skodol from Reasonably Raw Momma can provide this to you for an added cost.
Is there a detox and how does it work?
Space is limited for a 3-day detox and will be offered first come, first serve. Two detox dates will be available: February 7-9 or February 14-16. This detox includes food for Breakfast and Lunch and a recommended Dinner option. During the detox weeks, pick up is at RISE Fitness Studio the evening of Monday, February 6, and Monday, February 13th. You then begin your actual detox the next day (Tuesday) with the food you picked up the night prior. This pick-up process is repeated Tuesday and Wednesday.
LASTLY, we hope you join in on the fun! There is no better way to start the year than to focus on getting to your best self with improved nutrition and fitness.
