Here’s a video from Soulfest 2016, a faith-based music festival in New Hampshire.

Grant Denton and Lisa Moore came together to create “Rise and Grind”, an innovative program in Reno, Nevada, designed specifically for women in recovery from substance abuse and inter-related mental health issues. The majority of women in recovery also suffer from eating disorders, get addicted faster and have a higher relapse rate. That’s why what Denton and Moore and doing is so important and ground-breaking. They are equalizing the playing field for women in recovery!!!
The 90 day Rise and Grind program includes a weekly course on healthy eating and a daily workout at 6 a.m. at American Iron Gym. The program is intended to build muscle, self-esteem and discipline. Moore told us the ladies “get clean and sober – and they stop doing drugs, but then they need to learn how to do the nutrition part of it the working out part of it.” Denton added it’s a 90 day program that is intended to be integrated into a long-term recovery program. Rise & Grind graduates get a one year free membership to American Iron Gym when they graduate. For more information visit www.facebook.com/riseandgrindreno. Denton and Moore are serious players in recovery but also know how to have fun. Below is video they recreated to celebrate the graduation of a 2018 class. GREAT WORK!!!!!
