MEET RISE FOUNDER  
              GILLIAN  (SHE/HER)  

HI! I’M GILLIAN.

Although fitness has always been a part of my lifestyle, it really blossomed during a challenging period of life for me. It allowed me to take an hour out of my day, for myself, by myself. It became more about movement than fitness, and more about self-care and well-being. It became a way to process my emotions.

Now, I understand the gym isn’t always the most accessible of places, but there is movement everywhere. Whether it be outdoors or in the comfort of your home. We can make it possible! As a certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Instructor, I strive to create confidence in movement. An environment where you can learn safely, be challenged and feel empowered. I look forward to getting to know you
