This is what it takes.

The secret recipe for success, and you happen to have it. In the early summer of 2015, Ange and I were about two days into one of our quarterly work retreats.  Sitting on the back deck of our of our Revver’s beach-side homes, we were in heaven!  Three days to dream HUGE without any limits.  Where could we take Revkor? It was on this Grand Bend trip that we developed the strategy to move our growing London-based company to a franchise.  We had lofty goals and were having a blast figuring out how to tackle them. Angela’s new partner Al joined us for dinner on our second night.  This was one of my first times meeting him, and I was excited to learn that Ange had connected with such a bright, driven entrepreneur.  We opened good wine and settled in for a fun night of start-up themed chats. Based on my work with so many business owners, Al wanted to know: what did I think the magic recipe was?  What made the difference between average and outstanding?  What did I see in Ange when we first met that set her apart?  My answer came to me instantly, and was inspired by every badass change-agent I know.  The magic? Balls and steam. I’ve been lucky enough to work with unbelievable mentors who’ve achieved huge successes.  I’ve watched many business owners fail.  I’ve also had my own invaluable experiences both soaring and tanking, and nothing has taught me more. A fancy pedigree, unstoppable network, the highest education; these are not secrets to success.  Loads of money, all the right investors - that’s not it either.  In life and business, the people...

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...
Your revMIX secret weapon.  It’s not what you think.

Your revMIX secret weapon. It’s not what you think.

Want to CRUSH your Revkor high intensity workouts? Are you a revMIX junkie?  Our high intensity classes like revMIX 1, 2, 3 - and our latest killer sequence revFIX – are an obsession.  There is nothing like that feeling of challenging yourself to push out your best possible minute at the bands. If you’re new to Rev, you might be wondering how to get better at these classes.  Will those burpee climbers ever get easier? And Rev veterans know that while we always find progress, these classes are always one of the most challenging workouts going. We recently wrapped up our annual Revkor Holiday Shred, (WABAM!) and 8 weeks of hardcore Revving and super-clean eating turned more people than ever into revMIX and revFIX junkies!  You’d be hard-pressed to find a workout that delivers those kinds of rapid results in such a fun package. Want to seriously step up your game and challenge yourself to find the most killer planks, powerful jump lunges, and pushups that would make any athlete envy your strength? The answer might not be what you think. Revkor no-impact sequences are designed to help you develop unparalleled stability, mobility and deep power.  This is why so many elite athletes call our original sequences like revSPORT and revYOGA their secret weapon, helping them achieve top performance on the ice, the field, the ring… The controlled, focused movements help you isolate your muscle groups and build strength from a foundation of good form.  Unlike training with free weights and other less dynamic equipment, the constant tension on the resistance bands asks so much more from your body.  The focused pace of...
