We Climb We Rise


Rise Nation utilizes basic human movement patterns to deliver a full-body, high-intensity, and low-impact exercise unlike any other. Our 30-minute Climb classes take place entirely on the Versaclimber – an upright climbing machine with variable resistance that engages the entire body in a constant vertical ascent without strain from impact. The combination of this superior and innate movement with our choreography in a high-energy, motivational, and sensorial environment is what sets our workout – and our results – apart.


In this 30-minute class, experience a total-body challenge as you climb to an instructor-curated playlist, complete with dynamic choreography and an immersive light show. The Climb emphasizes proper climbing technique and foundational Rise Nation choreography, while offering variations to challenge every individual.

(All work is performed on the climber and no prior experience is needed)


With faster tempos, increased workloads, and more intricate choreography, this 30-minute, full body EXPERIENCE will help you reach new heights! Although variations are available to cater to all, this class is designed to challenge seasoned climbers. Ideally, participants should have completed 5 Climb classes before taking our Advanced Climb.

Mile High Climb

Goal of 5,280 Feet Climbed

Challenge yourself to climb one vertical mile in this 45-minute class designed to energize and inspire you to reach new heights. We recommend taking at least 5 classes prior to signing up for this experience.

RISE360 Strength & Climb

Our 50-minute, interval-based Strength & Climb class combines isometric holds on the Isophit with cardio intervals on the Versaclimber. This combination of two of the most effective tools on the market provides a high-intensity, low-impact workout that will increase functional strength, improve balance and stability, and increase metabolism while reducing the risk of injury!

CLIMB + Core

This 45-minute class combines our signature instructor-curated, choreographed full-body CLIMB with core focused exercises on the Isophit. CLIMB + Core emphasizes proper climbing technique and foundational Rise Nation choreography, while offering variations to challenge every individual and concludes with functional core strengthening work complete with an immersive sound and light show.

All work is performed on the climber and Isophit and no prior experience is needed.


Remember to drink plenty of water or electrolyte drink before, during, and after your Rise Nation class. Our high-energy sessions are designed to make you sweat, so staying hydrated will be critical to your performance during your workout and your recovery. Water fountains and bottles of water for purchase are available in all studios.

Get In Gear

Closed-toe athletic shoes are required to climb. Please bring a pair of clean, dry shoes to wear in the studio – we have plenty of storage space for your snow boots, sandals, or other shoes. We also recommend breathable, comfortable athletic wear and a sweat towel for your workout.

Arrive Early

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to class start time for your first class. This allows our staff to welcome you, give you a tour of our space, and introduce you to the Versaclimber.

The Basics

We want to ensure you’re comfortable on the Versaclimber before your first climb. Arrive 15 minutes early and let a Rise Nation staffer know it’s your first time. They’ll familiarize you with the equipment before class begins.

Check In

When you arrive at Rise Nation, give your name to the front desk staff to check in. They will confirm your class and direct you to your climber.


First time climbers at Rise Nation must sign our waiver, which is displayed at our front desk and available on our app. Please read all sections carefully and review safety procedures before submitting. Any climber under age 18 needs a parent or guardian to sign the waiver to participate.

Easy Does It

Our classes are motivating, challenging, and inspiring and can also take some time to get used to. Be sure to pace yourself, shake out your hands and feet, and take breaks when you need them.

Rise Together

An open mind, positive attitude, and kindness ensure a gratifying experience for you and your fellow climbers. Remember the Rise community extends beyond the studio and #TogetherWeRise!

Learn the Lingo

Classes follow the rhythm of the music with moves and sequences called out by name. If you’re not familiar yet, don’t sweat it. Our instructors will demonstrate and catch you up on new terms as you go.

Climbing 101

A Rise Nation team member will introduce you to the climber during your first visit. These tips are helpful for your first (or 5,000th) class:

  • Keep the straps of the foot pedals loose. Make sure you have one or two finger widths of slack between the strap and the top of your shoe to help maintain blood flow
  • Handgrips should be at shoulder height or below. Climbing with hand grips too high diminishes the full-body effect and efficiency of the workout.
  • While climbing, keep your torso and shins parallel to the post of your Versaclimber, engaging your core throughout the entire movement.
  • If you begin to feel lightheaded or dizzy, grab the foam handrails and step safely off the Versaclimber.
