6 Ways to Reset this Fall at Revkor™

6 Ways to Reset this Fall at Revkor™

We think September is the new January. Don’t regret a moment of your glorious summer fun!  We never feel guilty about living life to the fullest…this is why the bands exist!  Revkor is here to balance it all out. There’s a reason our manifesto is: Work out. Eat clean. Live fully. An incredible workout combined with awesome, clean food choices is our surest way to our strongest, most badass bod and our healthiest, most energetic self. But what’s all that fitness awesomeness without balanced living?  What’s summer without the ice cream truck, a pool-side margarita, a burger off the grill? Summers are SHORT so we soak it up - dock-side and deck-side - grilling good eats and cocktailing. For the final weeks of summer, we’ve been hearing you loud and clear.  It’s time for a Revkor Reset, and we don’t need a New Year’s Resolution to make that happen! Fall is the truest fresh start.  With the excitement of transitions, possibilities and new beginnings abound - why not jump on board?   Here’s how we’re getting back to business post Labour Day!   Live NOW:  Revkor studios are for ALL BODIES, all the time.  Leave judgment some place else and be your own best cheerleader - the moment we live for is this one. Waiting until we feel thinner/stronger/happier/different to choose your best life is a habit we’ve all had at some point.  Change it now. Embrace routine: Summer spontaneity is awesome, but after all those Free Pass Fridays, a little Fall routine feels so good! Pre-book your classes online well in advance and make that time you’re dedicating to...
Revkor: Look incredible, FEEL unstoppable!

Revkor: Look incredible, FEEL unstoppable!

Meet Courtney, another winner of our Revkor™ Summer Shred.  There’s a whole bunch of things we love about Courtney and high on the list is what a shining example she is to people in their early twenties.  So many of us head off to school and fall right off the rails on the fast-food and beer train, at a time in life when we should be feeling young, vibrant, and up for anything.  Packing on pounds and losing muscle early in adulthood doesn’t feel good but so many people do it, and fall into a rhythm of unhealthy living.  Not this girl - she chose goodness. Courtney went off to travel this year for a couple months, enjoying sunshine and good times but ready to get back to the bands.  Lucky to have a seriously incredible Rev-mom (Lise won our 2014 Holiday Shred!), this Shred champ and her motivating sidekick tackled the challenge with unstoppable energy and the results are obvious.  We’re so proud of you Courtney!  You’ve chosen healthy, awesome and strong. YES! “I had a lot of people tell me that doing this challenge was ridiculous & pointless because “you don’t need to lose weight”.  Well, I may appear that way because of my natural body structure (thanks mom!) however I felt in no way thin, fit, or toned like I wanted to be. This two month shred helped me get back to proper eating habits, regular exercise, working muscles that hadn’t been worked in over two months and just overall feeling better about myself! Recently I’ve loved being able to see…. my abs. Yes that sounds...

Introducing our Revkor™ Summer Shred Winner: Chad! Revkor™ is truly an addictive workout and Chad demonstrates why - look at these incredible results! Chad from our Revkor™ London Market is the FIRST PLACE WINNER of our Revkor™ Summer Shred!  Not only did Chad’s results blow us away, as one of our original members, Chad is a shining example of what revNATION is all about.  Always showing up with loads of happiness, positivity, and determination, Chad is a staple in the Rev community.  He’s famous for boosting spirits not only in the studio, but across social media too. While Chad’s before photo isn’t pre-shred (now that would be one hell of a 7-week transformation!), we included it because we know it will motivate and inspire so many.  A hardcore Revver from day-one, Chad has been stepping up to the bands for over two years.  You can choose to change your life and be happy, just like Chad does every single day.  Thank you Chad for being a Rev Hero every day! CONGRATS CHAD!  Chad wins a $500 gift card toward our Band Camp trip to Costa Rica! “The last time I wrote about what Revkor meant to me I simply said: happiness. And I meant it. Now I’m going to expand on that by talking about something that every single one of us shares: choice. Karl Jung said: I am NOT what happened to me. I am what I CHOSE to become. Almost two and a half years ago I chose to walk through the door of Angela Rivard’s first studio. I instantly fell in love with her calmness, strength and confidence....
Chicken-Zoodle Shred!

Chicken-Zoodle Shred!

Whip this bad-boy up for lunch or dinner - the whole family will absolutely love it. We get asked all the time how we make our vegetable noodles.  You can buy a spiralizer for about 50 bucks.  We use one of these handy julienne peelers which cost us about $3…it gets almost as much of a workout as we do revNATION!  This thing is an absolute staple in any clean kitchen. This is a super light and creamy noodle dish with a sharp tang of lemon.  You can swap the chicken out for salmon or any white fish, or you can ditch the meat all together and make this vegan.  Amp up your protein in a vegan version by adding chickpeas or tempeh - if you eat soy. This recipe serves two. Make it happen: julienne/spiralize 4 zucchini and a carrot Thinly slice half a red pepper and half a red onion in a tsp of coco oil, sautée carrot with one clove of crushed garlic, onion add sliced cooked chicken and 3 tbsp of ground almonds and heat through. (Almonds provide a Parmesan-like texture - yum!) add juice and zest of one lemon, cracked pepper and sea salt add chopped arugula and cook for one minute add zucchini and sautée for 2 minutes put mixture in a big bowl and stir in one crushed avocado to make a creamy sauce. Add another squeeze of lemon and extra S+P to taste.  Serve immediately....
