Why Rise? | Rise Nation
More Than a Workout


Rise Nation redefines fitness by capitalizing on choreographed climbing created by renowned trainer, Jason Walsh. Drawing on his knowledge and expertise in strength, conditioning, and human physiology, Walsh developed Rise Nation to combine his career in providing effective, efficient, and safe workouts with his passion for music, art, and unrivaled experiences.


Climbing utilizes the body’s primal upright biomechanics, promoting healthy spinal alignment, a balanced physique, and promotes neuromuscular coordination.


Rise Nation classes are momentum neutral which means you earn every foot of elevation you climb. Climbing activates all major muscle groups of the body simultaneously, making our workout the most effective calorie burner on the market. The high-intensity nature of our workout means you only need 30 minutes, and it is low-impact and self-regulating, making climbing more accessible to people at all stages of their fitness journey.


Rise Nation classes, studios, and experiences are unlike anything else in the fitness industry. Geometric, custom-lit ceiling installations coordinate with your workout while concert-quality speaker systems will keep you climbing to the beat. Get caught up in the evolution of fitness with your fellow climbers.


Rise Nation studios are committed to sustainability, reducing our carbon footprint, improving our communities, and partnering with sustainable products and businesses. We support and partner with Path water, Public Goods personal care amenities and soft goods, Ka'chava protein powders, Cloud Paper toilet paper, and KoraRae merchandise. Thank you for helping us be a part of the sustainable solution!
