Jason Walsh: A day in the life of celeb fitness trainer, Rise Nation founder and HANAH Hero

Jason Walsh is the founder of Rise Nation and the go-to fitness expert for Hollywood’s biggest stars when they need to transform themselves safely and effectively for their most physically challenging roles. Think Bradley Cooper in American Sniper, Emma Stone as tennis legend Billie Jean King, John Krasinski as a Navy SEAL in 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, Matt Damon in the Bourne series, and Alison Brie in GLOW.

For Jason, training and nutrition go hand in hand. He stresses the importance of feeding the body well with quality foods and trusted supplements to create a healthy environment for it to grow, recover and respond to demanding physical goals. His go-to herbal supplements for himself and his clients include HANAH ONE and HANAH Ashwagandha+. “If you don't have enough of the right nutrients, you're just spinning your wheels,’” he says.

Check out his simple five-ingredient smoothie (featured in Shape) for Emma Stone to make sure she was getting enough protein and healthy fats during her training for Battle of the Sexes.

Rise Nation is a concept Jason developed because he was getting so many clients referred to him with injuries, especially in the lower back due to overuse. So he came up with a solution that is highly beneficial, effective, efficient, and safe—which is the number one priority. It has been dubbed “the first true 30-minute full body workout” and has locations in West Hollywood, Cleveland, Miami, Dallas and soon in Australia.

In our next episode of HANAH Rituals, we spend the day with Jason and his two rescued pit bulls Trent and Ella as he travels from sanctuary to sanctuary in Los Angeles. See how this Missouri native stays grounded and focused while navigating one of the busiest cities in the world and helping people feel their best both physically and mentally.
