Because something has to change.

Because something has to change.

All we did was google: “fitness magazine covers”.   We actually pay people to tell us this sh!t. Even if we don’t buy these kinds of magazines, these messages still scream at us in the market line-up, on highway billboards, and worst of all, where we work out. Marketers need us to feel too old, too fat, and too skinny.  They need us to believe we don’t know how to eat, that we’re missing a BIG SECRET, and that we can’t make any choices for ourselves. If we dislike ourselves just enough, we’ll buy what they’re selling. We drank the juice, too. For years, WE were buying the same old crap for ourselves. Why? Because we’re born and raised in the fitness industry, where body-shaming was born.  Want proof? Just check out these unfathomable gym ads.  We all fall prey to the cycle of guilt, and we knew we had to do something to change it. It’s always been about taking the power back. This is why Rebellion was born: so we could band together to end the cycle. Listen, there is nothing wrong with wanting to lose weight. Maintaining a healthy percentage of body fat is key to overall health; everyone knows that.  And there’s nothing wrong with wanting to change your appearance. We all have to do what feels right for us. What needs to change is who decides how we feel about ourselves, and who decides what we do about it. And because we get slammed with this BS on the regular, we have to check in ALL THE TIME to make sure we’ve empowered ourselves...
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.        ...

Why we go dry!

Why we go dry!

Random acts of no booze and why we love it. Across the board, Revvers are a crew of people who love to crush.  As business partners, Ange and I like to challenge each other to find ways to be at our most energized, creative and resilient. We know that - generally speaking - when the cocktails flow, we’re not at the top of our game.  This is why we launch our own dry-zones from time to time, and why we’re  sharing this concept with you during Rebellion. Here are our top reasons for laying off the booze. Health.  Here’s a shocker - drinking is a leading cancer risk. We put so much work into eating and living well that cutting back and occasionally eliminating the booze is a no-brainer. Hangovers.  Life without dehydration, headaches, 6 am cravings for strong coffee and a bacon double cheeseburgers? We don’t know anyone who wishes they had more hangovers in their life. Hangxiety.  Putting our feet up with a cocktail at the end of the day may feel like the perfect way to quell anxiety, but the opposite is true.  Inhibitions are lower so you may wake up with texters’ remorse but there’s also a lot of science to back up the hangover jitters.  While the body works to metabolize your drinks, blood sugar drops, which can lead to feelings of nervousness.  Sounds like a vicious circle,huh? Clear skin. Alcohol dehydrates us, leaving our skin looking gaunt and dry.  It also causes inflammation in the body overall, which can show up on our skin as red blotchiness. What? Oh right, memory.  Booze messes with memory to the max....
