First-off, our workout is like no other.  If you don’t already know what we’re all about, explore our website, watch our videos, and get acquainted with this Canadian-born company that has people obsessed with resistance training again.  Revkor instructors need to have edge and feel pumped to help people crush a workout that’s as fun as it is tough.

Mystery Revver Crushes the Bands!

Mystery Revver Crushes the Bands!

From undercover to Shred Star! In Cambridge, we’ve always had a Facebook group where Revvers could share recipes, laughs, and support.  Some time ago, our Facebook group suddenly stepped up its humour game. A mystery Revver had us all in stitches with her dry humour and hilarious observations.  Who was this super-clever band groupie?  We had no idea…her Facebook photo was a cartoon and her profile seemed to contain zero pictures of her actual self.  After a week or two, our whole crew was wondering – who is she? Finally the mystery Revver posted that she’d forgotten an umbrella after class, which I held hostage until she claimed it from me personally.  To my surprise, Amanda came to the desk to claim it - a seriously quiet and unforgettable person I had seen come in and out of the studio without a word for months.  Over the last year, a lot has changed.  Maybe we’ll let Amanda tell you her version of the story first: “So, a year ago I was fat, sad, and lifting weights in my basement. I had no friends, rarely went out, and could not have been more depressed. I couldn’t even do a squat so I was failing pretty hard at the weightlifting. I decided maybe some yoga would help me become more limber. After some research, I found a studio and accidentally ended up signing up for a revMIX class. I bumbled angrily through my first class (in the back corner) and the next week I went back for more. I mostly kept my head down, did my workout and went home.   After a few months...
Chantal – Real Rev Strong!

Chantal – Real Rev Strong!

Shred Star Chantal! “Revkor was a beautiful discovery – I could build muscle during an enjoyable class without touching a weight!” One of the things we love most about Shred is sharing stories to help change the way we think of each others’ journeys.  It would be easy to meet Chantal and think it comes easy.  Strong, always smiling and ready with something kind to say, she’s one of those people who just makes you feel happy when you’re around her. But being strong hasn’t come without setbacks and struggles. Always a lover of life, Chantal has always loved staying active, being outside, and making the most of every day. “I started running when I was 20 and never looked back. I quickly got into distance running,  participating in Marathons on a regular basis. I was never one for the gym, however pushed myself to start going a few years back, realizing that muscle was very important to support myself when running.” Chantal says she never fully enjoyed weight lifting and felt it was more of a chore. “Revkor was a beautiful discovery – I could build muscle during an enjoyable class without touching a weight!” Naturally active, Chantal rides horses, snowboards, and loves being outdoors with her family.  A while back, she suffered a setback with a snowboarding injury, and raves about how the bands helped her move through her knee recovery. “I completely tore my meniscus and partially tore my MCL.  The torn pieces of meniscus were lodged behind my kneecap for months, limiting mobility until I went for surgery.  Due to a month of no use, I lost...

ShredStar Tiffany: The Goal-Crusher.

ShredStar Tiffany: The Goal-Crusher.

  “I finished the year 2014 overweight, sad, and unhealthy. I told myself that 2015 would be my year to get out of the funk I had found myself living in.”   Meet Tiffany, one of two top winners from the 2015 Revkor Holiday Shred.  Before we tell you Tiffany’s story, we’ll let her hard work speak for itself: When we first met Tiffany, we knew something was up.  Always kind and reserved around the studio, she would hit the bands like a ferocious machine.  We weren’t surprised to eventually learn that she was a seriously accomplished athlete. “You would never know looking at my before picture that I’d been a competitive swimmer my entire life, competing at the national level as well as at an NCAA division 1 university in the USA. People often looked at me in disbelief when I told them my background, they could not believe I was an athlete. I was determined to change this.” When we think of Revkor #BallsAndSteam, this girl has it.  Determined to harness her academic potential, Tiffany hustled to become one of the nation’s most elite swimmers, earning her a scholarship at The University of Nevada, Las Vegas. In case the idea of going to school in Sin City conjures up ideas of all-night debauchery, you can guess again.  During her ten years in Vegas, Tiffany set hardcore goals for herself and crushed the hell out of them, one by one.  Over the decade she earned herself a double Masters in nursing and her MBA. She practiced nursing in a paediatrics emergency room - possibly as badass as it gets in our books…all while...
Post Shred Blues?  We’ve got your fix.

Post Shred Blues? We’ve got your fix.

Alright revNATION, we hear you loud and clear!  Some of you have a bad case of the PSBs, and who can blame you?  We’d be lying if we said that we aren’t also pining for the days of sticker boards and crazy Shred-season energy. Revkor Shred runs 8 weeks long for a reason: so that healthy habits become a lifestyle.  Hanging on to that lifestyle though isn’t easy, but guess what?  You’re tough stuff, and you can do it. If you think you’re the only one who’s fallen off the Shred-rails, guess again.  Does this sound familiar? Wowieee!  I really crushed that Shred!  I’m feeling better than I’ve felt in YEARS.  I’m going to celebrate with poutine and a pitcher of beer.  Maybe I’ll see a movie this Saturday instead of Revving.  You know, it’s not that big of a deal to order the extra large popcorn at the movies.  I mean, corn is a WHOLE GRAIN.  Wow.  I’m feeling bloated, I think I’m going to skip revMIX this morning and watch Making a Murderer on Netflix in my track pants.   Just one episode.  Ok three - because really, this is important world news, it would be IRRESPONSIBLE not to know how this story plays out.  Know what goes really well with Netflix?  Pizza.  Oh geez.  Look what I’ve done with my results.  I let myself down - just when I was totally getting somewhere.  I’m such a colossal weenie. I can’t get anything right.  Booohoooooooooo. C’mon Revvers, it’s time to remember what we’re made of!  We’ve watched you sweat your way through hours of game-changing moves at the bands, there’s no...
