We are The Phoenix, and since 2006, our free sober active community has inspired more than 36,000 people across America to believe they have the strength to rise from the ashes of addiction through the support of those who are walking that very same path.
There is something about ascending your first summit that makes you feel like anything is possible. A glimmer of hope arises within that makes you believe that you can beat substance use disorder. From CrossFit and climbing, to hiking, running, cycling, yoga and more, we believe fostering human connections in mental, physical and spiritual fitness is a powerful way to rebuild wounded bodies and spirits and restore hope.
Beyond overcoming the physical, mental and spiritual challenges of recovery, we know the hardest part can be breaking away from the people and places that surrounded one during addiction. Whether it’s finding new friends at home or starting over in a new city, this critical phase of recovery can leave people utterly isolated when they are most in need of connection. That’s why The Phoenix harnesses the transformative power of community to give people in recovery the support they so desperately need.
We aim to shatter the stigma surrounding substance use disorder from the inside out by helping our members establish their sober identity and imagine new possibilities for their lives through fitness and community. Each class helps individuals become less defined by their substance use disorder and identify more as runners, yogis, climbers or boxers. Phoenix Team Members overcome isolation by fostering human relationships that endure long after the workout ends.
The goal of The Phoenix is to help as many people as possible find a clear path to recovery, so we make every effort to remove any barriers to getting involved with our community — this includes financial barriers. We host daily, FREE classes and events where the only requirement to attend is at least 48 hours of continuous sobriety.
