I absolutely Love this gym and the staff. I am working with Jen and she is definitely pushing me harder than I have ever pushed myself. Its been such an amazing experience and I can not wait to see me hit my goal.
Cassandra has been working out since she was 18, but it was only in the last few years that she decided to make fitness her profession. Cassandra is certified in a wide variety of classes including Les Mills BODYPUMP, Madd Dogg Spinning®, Barre Above, Tabata Bootcamp, and PWR! Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery. She currently teaches 7 different classes at RISE which makes her one of the most busy instructors. She designs her classes to make sure her participants “have fun, work hard, and come back!”
At age 57, she continues to motivate and inspire others. She says the best part of her job now is the look on her participants faces when they master a move or complete a class for the first time. “The more you do it, the better you get.” She also leads a class designed for people with Parkinson’s Disease and is firm but kind in her approach to asking for movement that feels hard. She tells her participants to “love the body you have, because the rest are all taken.”
