Rising Heroes Full Review

Rising Heroes is a Health/Fitness/Lifestyle Alternate-Reality-meets-Role-Play game. It takes gaming concepts and then reaches into your life to help you become a better you. This is a brand new product by the Nerd Fitness Team and it’s meant to motivate, inspire, and otherwise get your moving toward your goals.

But is it worth the cost?

At $29 per month, my first concern was about value. And I’m not the only one who sharesenrollmentpay this concern. When the price was announced, dozens of people went to Facebook to add their voices to others, prompting Steve (Owner of Nerd Fitness) to send a follow-up email in an attempt to justify the cost and point out ways to cut expenses elsewhere in order to afford a Rising Heroes Subscription.

At first I decided that I was not going to participate. The price tag was a huge turn-off even though I could afford it. And there wasn’t a lot of information about exactly what the product was. The descriptions on the website were vague and confusing. I attribute this to the product being so brand-spanking-new. Plus, it’s a thing that hasn’t been done before to this extent! There’s not much out there to compare it to! Facebook was buzzing with many others who had the same questions that I did. What is Rising Heroes? What is it about? What is it supposed to do for me? How does it work? Continue reading

Rising Heroes Report Day Twenty Nine

It was a good day today. I was tired because I only had about four hours of sleep because I stayed up to complete my full review of Rising Heroes. Despite that though, I got all my missions done, it was a gorgeous day, and work wasn’t busy at all.

At the end of the work day my friend called and asked if I could run over to her house to let her animals out for potty breaks and feeding time since she wasn’t going to be home for a while still. No problem! I did my walk around her property with her dog instead of around my place! The dog certainly had a good time and was quite happy to make sure there were no enemy agents in the area.  Continue reading

Rising Heroes Report Day Twenty Eight

Today started off good but then lunch time hit and I really did not want to exercise. I can’t really explain why. It was just one of those times where you don’t feel like giving it your all. You just dun wanna. But then I thought to myself, “What would Rill do?”

You see, Rill is my alter ego. She is my avatar and my alias. Rill is the person who I want to become. She is my future self. My perfect self. The one I want to be. She is strong and capable and knowledgeable and good. She’s a fighter and a writer. A philosopher and a teacher. A leader and a friend. Basically everything I wish to and want to be. So when I thought, What would Rill do? I was really asking myself, what would my future self do if my future self was me right now. Continue reading

Rising Heroes Report Day Twenty Six

Today begins Week One of Campaign Two, the quest to find Staci’s dog Madi. Because information the hacker has given us has led us to believe that the has financial ties with a suspicious ‘bank’, all Rebels are being asked to look to the condition of their finances. This week’s missions are a reflection of that goal. Continue reading

Rising Heroes Day Twenty Five

The last week. It’s hard to believe I’m here already. Today was a day of rest but it has had me thinking all day. I’m curious to see if we continue on with Week Five or if we will start over at Week One. Or if it’s Week Five until February 1st and then we start over. I’m also curious to see when recruitment will be opened again. This week, being the last week of the month, holds many questions that will soon be answered. Continue reading

Rising Heroes Report Day Twenty Four

Today was a pretty typical Saturday except for some family visiting. I did not complete the Fast Food Finale mission again today because…well, barbecue. Kansas City style barbecue. I’m pretty sure there are no Shadow Organization ties with our favorite barbecue joint but I’ve been wrong before. I shall have to study it closely for a while. Today, perhaps, I studied a little too closely!

Despite that, I did complete the other missions today including the Flash Mission because we talked a lot about finances while eating the afore mentioned barbecue. I did my personal missions of grocery shopping and chores though I still did not get to go see Grandma or do meal prep. It’s a good thing tomorrow is another day!
