RISER OF THE MONTH: DAWN MACISAAC
As I reflect on my time at RISE, I’m so thankful I agreed to participate in the "2014 Back to School Challenge" with a friend. I grew up a competitive athlete and never thought group fitness was for me. Following years of running, I learned I needed hip surgery and wondered what my fitness regimen would look like once I recovered. I was pleasantly surprised to find RISE offered everything I’d need to get back in shape just nine months after having surgery.
I have tried almost every single class and instructor at RISE and I haven’t been disappointed once. With the variety of classes offered, flexible schedule, and different teaching styles, my biggest problem is deciding which class to attend. The instructors challenge and motivate while offering modifications for all skill levels. It’s the best of both worlds – a class atmosphere with an individualized workout. And each instructor offers their unique commentary to help keep the class fun and interesting.
