A vast conspiracy to keep people unmotivated and unhealthy sweeps the land.
Or at least that’s what it can feel like sometimes.
Modern society can barrage us from many different angles – slowly imprisoning us through promises of convenience, comfort, and instant gratification.
If you step back and look, the signs are all around us…
Heck, you don’t even have to look hard. Most of the time, it’s in plain sight. As a culture, more and more of us are:
We know this all too well. We see it not only in ourselves, but in our friends, our family, and even complete strangers.
Our doctors are disgusted with us. They tell us to “make sacrifices for our health” and to lose more weight. (Like we needed to be told that.)
The diet books and exercise conglomerates tell us we’re lazy — and then try to sell us expensive gym memberships we’ll rarely use and confusing products that don’t work.
The media companies profit by distracting us, stealing our attention, earning money for every minute we stay on their site.
We spend so many hours of the day looking at our screens. So many evenings spent guiltily eating food we know isn’t good for us. So many mornings struggling to get out of bed to face the day ahead.
And once we finally drag ourselves out of bed — after hitting the snooze button a minimum of three times — we rush around the rest of the day feeling busy and overwhelmed. Or we feel apathetic and depressed about our jobs, like the cast of Office Space.
When we get home from work, we feel momentary freedom… but instead of making a healthy dinner, going to the gym, or spending meaningful time with our friends and family, we only have (barely) enough energy to sit and watch Netflix.
Every night, we tell ourselves we’ll do better tomorrow. And every year, after 365 days of frustration, we tell ourselves ENOUGH.
We say: This year will be different. This year I will take control and get in shape and step up my life.
We may start out optimistic and strong. But inevitably, after only a few weeks or maybe even a few days of trying, we fall off track and end up RIGHT BACK WHERE WE STARTED: unhealthy, unhappy, and unsure of what to do next.
But what if we’re not the only ones involved here?
What if there was something else out there — something sinister and widespread — that was sabotaging our efforts and keeping us down?
What if there was something out there that wanted us to fail?
Well, that would be a conspiracy.
That would be crazy.
That would be… Rising Heroes.
What I’m about to tell you is going to sound insane. But it’s imperative that you understand what’s at stake here.
Late last year, I was exploring the underground stacks of books deep in the basement halls of the New York Public Library.
While I was sitting at one of those long research tables, a stranger in a hood walked by, slipped a book beside me, and whispered, “Chapter 2 was my favorite…”
I looked down at the book and opened it, and before I had the chance to react, he was gone.
Curious, I opened this mysterious book and started to read.
This book upended my entire world and sent me spiraling down a deep, dark tunnel of the internet.
And it was there that I discovered some shocking things: Ancient myths. Secret societies. And an actual, up-to-no-good shadow organization operating under our very noses.
I’m still trying to piece everything together, but here’s what I can confidently say at this point:
There is a nefarious shadow organization hellbent on making our lives miserable — and its influence is widespread.
It has its tentacles in dozens of industries and social influences, from fast-food, the sugar lobby, the finance industry, technology, mass media, and many more. It’s everywhere.
This shadow organization wants to keep us unmotivated, unhealthy, and subservient.
From the food we eat to the information we consume and beyond, this shadow organization has infiltrated our lives and put us under their control.
It wants to keep us unhealthy. It wants to stop us from gaining new skills or becoming happier people. It works to stop us from connecting with and supporting each other. It does everything in its power to keep us distracted, divided, unmotivated, and unhealthy.
It’s just as bad as it sounds.
Fortunately, I also found something that gave me hope.
There’s a small uprising happening right now — and it has the potential to change everything.
Along with my discovery of this shadow organization – which we still know very little about – I uncovered a real-life rebellion working to overthrow its control of modern society.
I discovered four different factions that have been operating independently for hundreds of years — and I learned that they’re putting aside their differences and finally joining forces.
Their aim is to recruit the best people, get healthy, build new skills, and prepare themselves for the fight against the shadow organization in order to salvage the future of humanity.
It’s shaping up to be a battle of the most epic proportions — and it’s just getting underway.
The leaders of the four factions have asked me to build a platform to help the entire Rebellion work together for the first time in history.
I’ve agreed – and we’re now ready to recruit new members to join our cause.
When you join Rising Heroes, you’ll team up with an elite crew to infiltrate and destroy the sinister shadow organization. Sure, you’ll get in the best shape of your life and become the best possible version of yourself… but stay focused, we’re saving humanity here.
The time for action is now — and this year is your year to finally do all the things you say you want to do.
In Rising Heroes, you will not only fight for your own health and happiness — you will help wake the rest of the world up to the realities of their bondage and help them break free from the clutches of the sinister shadow organization.
With Rising Heroes, you’ll always have a new challenge and reward waiting for you.
Because these missions are simple to follow, don’t require a huge time investment, and easy to stick to, you can start looking, feeling, and moving better in just a few weeks — no matter your current fitness level, how busy you are, or where you’re starting from.
That’s why in Rising Heroes, instead of overhauling your entire life, we give you small action steps that lead to big results over time. The best part? Because it’s all part of a fun, epic adventure, you may not even notice!
In the video above, Steve walks through the inside of Rising Heroes and shows real examples from Month One missions, story updates, and community interaction.
Once you join, you’ll get immediate access the Rising Heroes platform on your computer or phone — and that’s when the real adventure begins.
You’ll be assigned quick daily and weekly missions around a wide variety of areas that will help you become the best version of yourself – while having so much fun you won’t even realize you’re building healthy, sustainable habits and routines.
Have low-energy or feel unmotivated? Rising Heroes makes getting healthy simple and fun by giving you easy-to-stick-to exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle missions. No matter what your current fitness level is, we’ll help you build the habits necessary to get into the best shape of your life — and stay that way.
Feel busy with barely enough time? Rising Heroes is built to give you small, quick wins that will lead to big results. Check in when you have time (on your lunch break, after putting the kids to sleep, etc), pick a mission to complete, and take 10-15 minutes to do it. This is how you build momentum and keep the positive results coming.
Struggling to get in shape by yourself? You’re never alone in Rising Heroes. Through our platform and private communication channel, you’ll have access to members of the Nerd Fitness team, plus a tight-knit community of people just like you who are ready and willing to support you.
As we mentioned above, in Rising Heroes, you’re part of an elite team with an important mission: Get in the best shape of your life and become the best possible version of yourself — all while working to infiltrate and destroy the sinister shadow organization.
Your actions have the ability to help shape the story and what happens next — and we’ll help you level up every aspect of your life, from your health, to your relationships, to your finances, and beyond.
Rising Heroes may be the perfect compliment for those of you who are already using the diet levels, workouts, instrucitonal videos, and recipes from the Academy content. See below.
Remember: Rising Heroes wasn’t designed to only help you lose weight and get healthy. Instead, we designed it to help you get fit while having fun and leveling up other important aspects of your life.
The storyline is epic and constantly evolving, and we’ll arm you with the habits and skills required to get in better shape, boost your productivity, improve your relationships and finances, and much more.
It’s a complete fitness and self-improvement adventure designed to help you level up every aspect of your life.
With Rising Heroes, it doesn’t matter what your schedule looks like or what you have on your plate — the fitness and lifestyle missions can be completed on your own time, whether that’s on your lunch break, after class, after putting the kids to bed, or on the weekend.
In Rising Heroes, there is no “failing” or “getting off track.” Instead, we’ll give you quick wins to help you make small but meaningful changes that will lead to big results over time.
We want to be clear: Rising Heroes is different than anything you’ve ever tried before.
We’re not gonna give you a strict diet (that’s destined to fail). We’re not gonna give you complicated exercise programs (that take forever to do). And we’re certainly not gonna tell you to change every single thing about your life (which is unrealistic and unnecessary).
Let’s be honest, if getting healthy was as simple as “following a workout program” or “downloading a meal plan,” we’d all look like Chris Pratt or Zoe Saldana from Guardians of the Galaxy.
Instead, we’ll meet you where you’re at, bring you into the story, help you get some quick wins, and make getting healthy simple and fun.
That said, Rising Heroes is not for everybody. So please read the following to find out if it’s right for you or not.
Rising Heroes is not right for you if:
You want to get in shape on your own, you find it easy to stick to healthy habits, and you already have a system to make habit-building FUN and sustainable.
This is pretty simple: If you’re 100% confident that you can get in better shape on your own — if you don’t need or want external motivation or accountability — then Rising Heroes is not for you.
Also, if you find it easy to stick to healthy habits (staying productive, getting good sleep, eating nutritious food, etc.), then Rising Heroes is probably not a good fit for you, either.
Long story, short: If you are getting great results and can stick to consistent healthy habits in several areas of your life – keep doing what you are doing! Way to go!
Rising Heroes is right for you if:
You want to lose weight, get fit, and level up important parts of your life.
If you’ve ever struggled with getting in shape and have already tried restrictive diets or multi-hour exercise programs, then Rising Heroes will be a breath of fresh air.
Every single health and lifestyle mission is easy to understand and simple to follow — no matter your fitness level.
You want an incredibly fun, engaging, and positive force in your life to keep you motivated and accountable.
If you’ve ever tried and failed to adopt new healthy habits, Rising Heroes will help you stay on track and become the best possible version of yourself. We have three main methods for helping you stay motivated and accountable:
A serialized story that updates month-to-month based on your actions. Remember, we’re fighting an evil shadow organization here. They have their hands in dozens of industries and societal influences, and we need your help. Your actions not only help you get in better shape and level up your life — they also help countless other people break free.
Weekly dispatches with easy-to-follow fitness and lifestyle missions. These dispatches are the lifeblood of Rising Heroes. They’ll update you on new happenings and breaking news, while giving you a series of missions to accomplish to get healthy and build new skills.
Connection and collaboration with your faction — and the rest of the Rising Heroes Rebellion. There are four separate factions who are teaming up to overthrow the nefarious shadow organization: Tyrus, Volo, Rheno, and Havik. We’ve established a secure network for you and your fellow recruits to connect, strategize, and support each other.
You want to support – and get in on the ground floor – of the next big phase of Nerd Fitness.
I started Nerd Fitness in January of 2009 with a $100 investment and spent my nights and weekends working at a $10 Ikea table to bring this community to life.
Since then, we’ve bootstrapped 100% of the experience and have never had a single ad or sponsorship on the site. We provide free resources, weekly blog posts, and a free message board community gladly, because we want people to get started on a healthier path today.
Due to Nerd Fitness’s growth, we’ve been fortunate to grow to 9 full-time team members and a dozen part-time contractors to support this community, and it’s experiences like Rising Heroes that pay our salaries and keep the rest of the site free. We reinvest nearly every dollar made back into this team, our courses, and our community.
If you’ve been reading Nerd Fitness for a while (or just joined!) and want to support what we’re trying to accomplish, joining Rising Heroes directly contributes to that too.
We’re investing in Rising Heroes for years to come. This is going to evolve and grow to some pretty amazing places (we have big plans) – and this is your chance to get in on the ground floor – the very origin of it all.

Our approach to fitness and self-improvement is different than what you are used to. Our community is the most accepting and passionate you’ll find.Try it out today risk-free.
The same thing happens to millions of people every year around this time: They take stock of their life, see some things they’d like to change, and decide to do something about it.
This year is the year they’ll lose weight, get fit, and improve their health.
This year is the year they’ll set a better example for their kids.
This year is the year where they’ll find their motivation and finally follow through with all the things they want to do.
You don’t need a crystal ball to know what happens next.
They find a little motivation start making small positive changes — but then a few days, weeks, or months later, they fail. They fall back into the same old guilty routines, another year passes, and they start right back over at the beginning again.
But it DOES NOT have to be that way.
Now is the time for a revolution. Now is the time to take back your health, your attention, and your life. Now is the time to join forces with the four factions who are destined to triumph over the tyranny of this evil organization and liberate the people of the world.
The world needs you.
And right now, you have a decision to make: the blue pill or the red pill.
You take the blue pill, and the story ends. You go back to your life, believe whatever you want to believe, and hope that this year will different.
But you take the red pill, you join forces with me and the four factions and we discover together just how deep the rabbit hole goes.
Imagine what it would be like to finally follow through with all the things you say you want to do: lose weight, get healthy, take better care of yourself.
Imagine how good it will feel to take control of your life, inspire others with your actions, and set a good example for your friends and family.
Imagine how much freaking fun we’re gonna have!
Right now, you have the chance to become the best possible version of yourself. You have the chance to fight back against mediocrity, unhealthiness, and complacency.
But the time to act is now.
As we speak, there is a powerful organization out there that is getting even more powerful by the minute. It’s hell-bent on destroying our lives — and the lives of every single person we know and love.
It’s doing everything it can to keep us down, and we need your help to fight back.
Join the fight in Rising Heroes, and be a force for good in this world.
