Taking back meal prep!

Taking back meal prep!

Tackling the kitchen like we mean it. If setting yourself up for success in the kitchen feels like a grind, you need to read this.  We’re way more likely to crush something when we feel great about it! Revvers always tell us that they continue to work out at the bands because they love it.  Instead of dreading workouts, you actually found a workout you love - a place to come sweat that’s fun and lifts you up.  So how can we bring that same feeling to our kitchens? Here are our top ways to LOVE and crush meal prep. We’re sharing these because we know that when you LOVE to do something, it’s far easier to turn it into a habit that sticks, and healthy habits are what it’s all about. Take it Back!  Just like the first step of the Rebellion, take back meal prep! Planning meals shouldn’t feel like an obligation, and we should never feel like we’re dieting.  Preparing food is one of the most simple, fundamentally enjoyable things we can do.  Let’s put all the positivity we’ve got into it and LOVE that we’re taking time to nourish ourselves! Crank the tunes!  There’s nothing we love more than a killer playlist at the bands, and it’s no different in the kitchen!  Turn it up and enjoy the process. Plan.  Knowing exactly what you want to make in advance, shopping for ingredients, and being prepared makes it all come together easily.  be sure to have enough clean jars and containers on hand to store all your stuff! Be real.  There’s no need to make elaborate...
She Runs the World Choco-PB Smoothie!

She Runs the World Choco-PB Smoothie!

An easy snack at school, or before or after sports and workouts! Store this smoothie in an insulated thermos or water bottle to keep it icy-cold.  Packed with energy, protein, and deliciousness!  Make it peanut-free by switching out the peanut butter for almond butter. MAKE IT HAPPEN! In your blender: 1 peeled banana (we like to peel and freeze bananas in baggies, makes your smoothie taste like ice cream!) 1 cup of ice cubes 1 big handful of greens, whatever is fresh in your fridge (lettuce, spinach, etc. Avoid arugula as it has a strong flavour) 1 big tablespoon of peanut butter 1-2 tablespoons of cocoa (use real cocoa and avoid hot chocolate mix or sweetened chocolate) 1 date (makes it sweet!) 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut (good for fibre and energy, but you can omit if you don’t have it or coconut isn’t your thing!) 1 scoop of protein powder. We love using Manitoba Harvest hemp protein because it’s the most natural, unprocessed product we can find….and it’s Canadian!  You can buy this at most grocery stores in the natural foods section. About 3/4 cup of almond milk and 1/4 cup of water Big spoon of plain or vanilla greek yoghurt for protein and energy Run your blender until your drink is smooth and all the date and greens are fully blended....
The DL on Korboard from your crew.

The DL on Korboard from your crew.

What Revvers are saying about Korboard. We believe it’s our job to deliver you the most robust and dynamic fitness experience possible, so we were pretty pumped to add the Korboard to our roster of novel programming.  If you’re a Revver you know we love keeping you on your toes but this time, you’rethe ones surprising us.  Revvers in London and Cambridge have been embracing this method and making it part of their weekly Revkor commitments and frankly, your results have blown our minds.  We could tell you all about the huge transformations we’ve seen, but we’re gonna let some of our hardcore Korboarders give you their full low-down. John: When I first tried Korboard, I saw it as a ‘value added’ experience; a different way to do the same work. Having worked through it for several months, it is so much more. The benefits are unique and yet fit seamlessly into the overall Revkor programme, fostering balance among high-intensity work, flexibility, and strength. If Revkor is a worldview committed to physical and mental wellbeing, Korboard has become an essential component. There is no doubt that the Korboard has made for greater overall strength. Physically, the angles of movement make for a better isolation and the slow cues exhaust the muscles. It never ceases to amaze how much something as simple as a glute blaster on a low resistance band can crush you; such a little movement shouldn’t hurt that good! Tiffany: Korboard pushes you to your limit physically and mentally.  As a former athlete, this serious burn is something I missed.  There is something so humbling about being pushed...

Why we love to crush Mondays.

Why we love to crush Mondays.

Mondays with mad potential! Here’s why we think Mondays have magic when it comes to creating the lifestyle we want. A week of goal-crushing. If we want the most from our workouts, they have to be habit instead of chance.  Instead of squeezing it in when there’s time (because let’s be serious…there’s always something else we could think of doing), scheduling a start-of-the-week workout makes us way more likely to make fitness - and goal-crushing in general - a priority all week long. The slippery slope factor. Have an intense weekend of BBQs and cocktails?  Cheers to that - weekends are for good times! Postponing a return to workouts makes us more likely to talk ourselves out of fitness all week long…”I’ll get back there next week when I’ve eaten a little better/feel less bloated/have more energy…” Sound familiar?  We love nipping it in the bud and locking that Monday workout in, guilt-free and ready to rock. Bring on the week! Feel-good endorphins from crushing a Monday workout give us a more positive outlook on the day and week ahead. Who doesn’t want a healthy dose of unstoppable hell-ya on a Monday? #WABAM Kitchen crushing. Starting the week strong also makes us WAY more likely to start the week food-prepped and eating well. The ultimate re-do! No matter what last week was like, Monday is the best time to say f*ck it and start from scratch.        ...
