Why People Love RiseUp

“Emily, Kyle, and Addie make a phenomenal team. They are kind, motivational, and real. Each one of them cares about you as a person. They aren’t just in this business for the money or “cool” factor. They want to help people become better versions of themselves. The classes are fun, well-structured, and as challenging as you want to make them. All the trainers are knowledgeable and supportive. The gym is clean, the equipment is new, it’s in a great location, easily accessible from the freeway, with lots of parking. Highly recommend.”

Addie Clarke

Partner / Trainer

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.

Kyle Visin

Partner / Trainer

Kyle Visin grew up in Santa Clarita, and after high school decided it was time to head for the beach. He graduated from UCSB in 2005 and worked as a Mechanical Design Engineer developing Atomic Force Microscopes before he chose to pursue his true passion for health and fitness. Kyle takes a very analytical approach in his training and coaching to help people of all levels achieve their goals. He is regarded as a top level triathlete and has competed in numerous national and world championship events. Kyle placed 6th in the International Triathlon Union World Championships (2015) and 2nd at the Ironman Hawaii World Championships (2012). In his spare time, Kyle enjoys playing with his daughter Sloan, being outside with family and friends in our beautiful beachside community.

Emily Foley

Partner / Trainer

Emily was born and raised in Santa Barbara. Her love of athletics became apparent at a young age and she played soccer, basketball, and volleyball. She graduated from UCLA in 2008 with a BA in Psychology and Masters in Early Childhood Special Education and worked in the field for almost a decade. After rediscovering her true passion for fitness, Emily took her love of teaching and transformed it to high standard of athletic training, which allows her to guide people to the next level in their health and fitness. Emily is a top level athlete and in 2015 placed 1st in her age group in the Wildflower Ironman 70.3, 1st in her age group in the Gibraltar Cycling Time Trial and completed Ironman Canada. In her free time, Emily loves to stay active and spend time with her friends and family.
