It all began when we retired from professional swimming, feeling a bit lost and seeking ways to give back to a sport that gave us so much. We both had a keen interest in what made us great at what we did, and saw a common theme: our powerful mindsets. RISE came to life - created out of desire to give the type of support we wished we had when we were young athletes. And, what better way to do it than from the greats themselves.
This journey is about making a difference. It is about connecting the physical body with the brain, and teaching the fundamentals of mental health to teen athletes so they can take the tools with them on their journeys through sport and beyond.
This journey is about RISING UP. And, we are proud to have a team that is on a mission to change the world alongside us.

One definition of mental health is "our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices."
