Addie was born in St. Louis, MO and grew up in Tokyo, Japan before moving to Santa Barbara with her family. She graduated from UC Berkeley in 2015 with degrees in Biological Anthropology and Industrial Engineering before heading back to the beach with a remarkable wealth of primate trivia. Addie trained in classical ballet throughout high school and college, tirelessly fighting flat feet and inflexible hips before turning to group fitness as a new way to sweat, grow, and excel in athletics. She has since become extremely passionate about supporting and motivating people to discover their (often unexpected) potential in health and fitness. In her spare time, Addie enjoys baking, dancing, writing, and occasionally making a fool of herself on the stage in local theatrical productions.

Shannon is easily recognized by her giant smile, encouraging attitude, and killer athleticism at RiseUp! There is no one more excited about Team or Partner Day - although I'm sure a few of our members would vie for that crown! Before her days at RiseUp, she was crushing the soccer field and inspiring her fellow teammates with her enthusiasm and drive. Shannon is now a nurse at Cottage Hospital, uses that that same enthusiasm for life to engage with patients to help them recover and heal.
Sharon is the one you'll see ripping out 100 push-ups in a row without breaking a sweat - she's a lifelong athlete who has been pushing herself to new levels at RiseUp! Sharon is never afraid of a challenge, and has found that her drive to motivate herself can also drive others to reach new goals in their workouts. With careers in management and physical education, Sharon knows how to keep a workout organized and safe, while keeping an eye on numbers and technique.
Skylar was born and raised in the Santa Ynez Valley and attended college at Cal Poly. After graduating in 2012, he found his way back to the promised land that is Santa Barbara. He was very involved in team sports growing up, and played soccer all through college. You can't help but smile when Skylar walks in the room, bringing positivity, humor, and inspiration to his fellow gym-goers at every workout. Since he started working out at RiseUp, he has steadily built through the levels and enjoys improving everyday. For him, fitness is an outlet from the day to day grind and offers a great opportunity to meet people, get healthy, and work up a sweat! He's generous with his energy, wit, and passion, and employs them all to help every member reach their full potential.
Dominic is a true Santa Barbara native, repping our city's athletic talents back in football at Dos Pueblos, and continuing to inspire people to sweat everyday as a local fitness trainer.
