Located in a historic red brick building along Alameda’s bustling Park Street, Rise Bodyworks offers a newly renovated gym, an award-winning clinic offering a wide range of therapeutic and bodywork services, a Pilates studio and group fitness classes, both of which were named “Best of Alameda 2018).
At Rise Bodyworks we believe dancing, and dance-inspired exercise programs, are a fun way to get a“full body workout”. Done in correct form and posture, it has an impact on body weight, can help be heart healthy and strong, and build endurance. Rise’s dance-inspired classes will help burn hundreds of calories and give the most fun-loving exercise community you can imagine. Currently Rise Bodyworks offers Zumba, but on occasion, we will have a BollyX or U-Jam class but we are open to any and all types of dance-inspired classes and instructors, such as Cardio Hip Hop, Belly Dancing, or Cardio Salsa.
If you are a current instructor and are interested in teaching one of our classes, or being a substitute instructor for any of our dance-inspired classes, please submit your resume.
