About

ORIGIN STORY

The Uprising was born in a gym. Or to be more accurate, The Enchanted Ninja Clubhouse of Glory and Dreams at Mark Fisher Fitness. On a block in Hell’s Kitchen, New Yorkers of all shapes and sizes changed their lives by unlocking the secrets of health and hotness. But more importantly, they unlocked their own power to live their best lives. They invested in themselves and in their community. They developed new habits and new friends and new beliefs about their own limits. They became strong. They became superheroes.

But what is a superhero if she’s not out saving the world?

That’s the question that Uprising Founder Talia Corren asked. What would the world look like if we trained compassion and generosity the way we train deadlifts and push-ups? Not only getting 1% better every day, but GIVING 1% better. After all, our habits tell us who we are. So let’s be heroes. Let’s train a new set of habits to turn the limiting beliefs that say we can never give enough time or money to make an impact, into the experience that says, “I showed up, I made a difference, and I did it with my community!”

The Uprising is a place where everyone can show up. Show up with your friends. Show up with your time. Show up with your resources. Show up with your heart.
