Jason Walsh, a friend and incredibly talented trainer, started a new fitness craze when he opened Rise Nation in West Hollywood a few years ago. Jason has always loved a piece of equipment called the Versa Climber. It’s an amazing machine that replicates a climbing motion.
As Jason says, “Climbing utilizes the body’s primal upright biomechanics, promoting healthy spinal alignment, a balanced physique, and neuromuscular coordination.” It’s also a killer workout, because it is the most effective calorie burning class available (up to 600 calories in 30 minutes)!
A number of Hollywood’s brightest stars agree, including Matt Damon, John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Mandy Moore, Hilary Duff and Irina Shayk!
Personally, I love the Versa Climber, because it’s zero impact and works the body in a healthy range of motion. And I know Jason… he doesn’t play around when it comes to fitness and working out.
So, if you’re looking for a great workout in 30 minutes and you’re lucky enough to have a studio in your area, go check out a class! Rise Nation has studios in West Hollywood, Cleveland, Miami and Dallas. To learn more, click here

CORE POWER YOGA
I’m huge fan of yoga for a lot of reasons. Number one, it truly relaxes and de-stresses the mind. It cannot be over-stated how important that is. I honestly believe that stress really is the true silent killer of our times.
This workout will help you burn calories, improve flexibility and core strength, while also improving your zen. It’s hard to argue with the amazing benefits of that kind of class.
I’ve tried a bunch of yoga classes and there a ton of great ones, but I like Core Power Yoga, because they have classes that incorporate weights and heat. Hot Yoga cleanses the mind, body and soul and not only is a great sweat session, but also lowers your blood pressure, improves circulation, detoxifies your body and will give you a great night’s sleep. Celebrities like Kaley Cuoco, Julianne Hough and Vanessa Hudgens are big fans too!
They have studios all over the US, so if you want to learn more, click here
