Why body neutral and not body positive?
We believe that body neutrality is much more realistic than body positivity. It’s okay to sometimes not love our bodies, and sometimes body positivity can make you feel sad, or like a failure, when you’re having a bad body image day. With body neutrality there is no pressure to feel any specific way about your body. We also believe that body image resilience is much more attainable when we don’t focus so much on how we look. That is why we never mention how we look in our classes. Body image is a non-issue here. We are body neutral and proud!
When are the new classes uploaded?
The new classes are uploaded the first Monday of every month at midnight EST. Every month you will have continued access to the previous month's classes, so you can choose to either keep doing the classes from the month before, or do the new releases, or both!
Can I do the classes while pregnant?
If you are pregnant you should check with your doctor before doing any type of exercise. Everyone’s pregnancy is different and everyone’s body is different, so when talking to your doctor explain the types of classes that we offer so they can advise you on whether or not it is safe for you to do. If your doctor DOES approve these classes for you, make sure you are never lying on your stomach (yogalates!) and when lying on your back you keep your head elevated by a pillow or something similar (especially in the last 3 months or so of your pregnancy).
Do I need equipement?
For Zumba you do not need any equipment. Happy HIIT requires a mat and a pair of dumbbells. Blissful Barre requires a chair, a mat, and a light pair of dumbbells. Yummy Yogalates requires a mat, a light pair of dumbbells, and a looped booty band. All of these items are easy to find at Walmart, Canadian Tire, Winners, Target, Amazon, etc. Reach out to us for help if you need it!
How does the subscription work?

If I don’t live in Canada, can I still Rise with Resilience?
Absolutely! Anyone all over the world can participate in our classes. Please note, however, that prices are in CAD.
What if I find the classes too hard?
Starting a new workout regimen is an adjustment and can be a challenge! That is why we created a tutorial section, breaking down some of the basic moves in our classes. If you have never exercised before, we recommend starting with just one class per week, and then gradually (and while listening to your body) building up to 2, 3, then 4 classes per week. Be patient with yourself, and remember that we all gotta start somewhere!
How long are the classes?
All classes are 45 minutes long
How many times a week should I be doing the classes?
There are 4 types of classes. You don’t have to do all 4 classes per week, but we definitely recommend doing no more than 4 classes per week. You need rest days in order to recover! If you are new to fitness, or you just feel like taking it easy one week, do one class! Then you can slowly build your way up to 2, 3, or 4 classes per week.
