Co-Founder and Coach Nicole Bastianelli says owning Rise Athletics and doing CrossFit have significantly changed her life. "I have been able to help countless people and make so many friends since I began CrossFit," she says. "I have achieved fitness milestones I honestly never thought possible. I have been lucky enough to CrossFit through one pregnancy and currently am CrossFitting through my second."
Nicole is especially passionate about helping everyone that walks through her door find a fitness regimen that works for them. "I want everyone to be able to live a healthy lifestyle, including a sustainable workout schedule and way of life," she says. Her favorite quote is "The (wo)man on top of the mountain didn’t fall there" - Vince Lombardi.
