On Saturday, October 17, 2020 we held the second annual RISE Troops Challenge. This year as we all of know is different. The race was postponed from last May to October. It was worth the wait! Although we had a smaller turnout than last, which was understandable, It was a fantastic event.
A special thank YOU to all the volunteers that came out and helped. The event could not happen without you. We were able to raise $405 for the Veteran non profit organizations supported by our friends at Braveheart Brewing: POW-MIA Families, Intrepid Heroes Foundation, 03XX,and SEAL Family Foundation. Thank you to our sponsors and community! Mike from Heroes Movement made the trip all the way from Michigan!
There will be results, pictures, and more on the site shortly.
We have a few events that are coming up in the future. The first is the 25 Day December Tactifit Challenge. This will start on December 1. It is a calendar that presents a workout each day that you need to complete. Check back soon for more information.
Again, RISE Challenge Events values YOU. Remember, you can and should still train in these times. A healthy lifestyle and diet go a long way to avoid being sick.
If you are looking into online training options. Feel free to PM me or contact
Stay healthy everyone and thanks for your support.

"9 miles, 18+ obstacles, including a few killers, got through them all. Congrats Tammy Kovaluk on your RD debut event. It was an awesome event. Top 10 of all time... so much fun!"

“Rise Fitness has provided me with a fantastic training opportunity to help prepare physically for a special forces career in the military. Tammy has worked with me to create a dynamic training plan that fit my current fitness level and that lead to constant improvement. Joining the gym over a year ago, I was recovering from ACL surgery and since then I improved far beyond my fitness level before the surgery, including max PT scores. Without Rise, I would not be where I am today!”

"I absolutely cannot thank you enough for this incredible experience! I told my husband this was SERIOUSLY 10x more rewarding than my Spartan race! I was giddy and on cloud 100 the rest of the day! I met so many great people today, from the cadets, volunteers, and so many racers. Just absolutely inspired me!
