June 2022 Riser of the Month: Katelyn Kaese

She may be the RISE owner and ever-present leader, but each and every day, especially over the past few years, Katelyn Kaese has proved herself to be the epitome of a Riser. Whether it was surviving the pandemic as a small-business owner and mom to two young children or finding a new home for Rise, Katelyn decided to RISE every morning, making the best of her day and continuing to help clients along the way.

Katelyn’s path to positivity isn’t new. A group fitness junkie since college, Katelyn has immersed herself in wellness. After years of teaching barre, cycle and more, Katelyn had the opportunity to purchase Rise. "I love Rise because it has the most supportive, collaborative and driven community," she says. "There is a special magic with our team and our classes that lifts everyone up."

As Rise expands into the Wheaton community, Katelyn can’t wait to continue to share her wellness love with current clients and with the new clients in the Wheaton community. “I don't have to do this, I GET to do this,” she says.
