The Secret to Success in 8 Weeks?

The Secret to Success in 8 Weeks?

You already know the answer. We’re a whole thing.  We want what we want and we want it now.  When we can shop, hail a cab, and plan world travel in a few simple clicks; it’s no wonder we want a quick fix for everything.  Not to mention, they’ve been telling us for years we can have it all if only we just buy whatever their magic secret is. From blenders to hair products to real estate…isn’t that what they want us to believe? For four years our Revvers’ have shared stories with us about their past attempts at quick fixes.  From cleanses and detoxes to bars and shakes; from 21-day slim-downs to cucumber diets, we’ve heard it all. Not to mention, weigh-ins and measuring just work to deepen self-loathing and make us feel objectified.  Seriously…aren’t we more than the circumference of our upper arm? When it comes to the big stuff, the secret is that there is no secret. It’s human nature to think everyone else’s blessing were showered upon them without any effort.  From the outside looking in, the people who have it all seem to just - have it all. But hold up a second - we know better than this, right? Oprah, Steve Jobs, that guy at the bands who can crush aaallllll the Fighter Kicks, do we really think they were just chillin’ on their Playstation with a pizza pocket when one day badassery came knocking at their door? Hell no. We used to call our 8 Week Challenge the Revkor Shred.  Catchy, right?  Sounds super fitnessy; gives you visions of ripped abs and sweat.  Which is exactly why we evolved....
This is what it takes.

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...

A Revver’s Top 7 Reasons to Hit the Bands!

A Revver’s Top 7 Reasons to Hit the Bands!

Meet hardcore Cambridge Revver Louise. She’s mom to Thomas, 14, Matthew, 7 and Benjamin - just over 6 months.  This 38 year-old mama didn’t waste any time post-baby…we’re pretty sure the docs cut the cord and Louise jogged promptly to the bands! Revkor was just what Louise says she needed post baby-Benjamin.  “By week-2 of Revkor, I already felt my body strengthen.  I decided to take a leap and try revMIX, where I heard my instructor say ‘you can do anything for a minute’!   That motivating phrase is where I focus my thoughts.  Unless my body physically cannot go anymore, my new mantra is now this saying. Even though it’s just a few words of encouragement, for me it keeps my mind focused, knowing the harder I work I know I’ll see results. Guaranteed!” We’ve watched Louise become so strong and vibrant, from the inside-out. “I believe in myself more now than I ever have. And I know the physical part of me can do it as long as the mental part of me pushes through,” she shared. Whether you’re a new mom, new to working out, or just deciding to get active for the first time, Louise tells us why Revkor is her chosen workout for life!   A Revvers Top 7 Reasons to Hit the Bands! 1. Do things you never thought your body could! “With rev you can perform movements and positions with the aid of the bands. They give you leverage to move in a way you cannot, especially with plyometric movements.” 2. Anyone can do it. “My instructors gave me all the modifications I...

Meet Revkor™ Shred second prize winner, Kathryn! In the past 2 plus years, Kathryn has probably stepped up to the bands more than any other member.  A staple at our founding studio in London, Kathryn is a major fixture in the Rev community in so many ways.  We actually call her our Rev-Police, (aka Rev Popo!!) because she helps keep our creative and dream-chasing company in check!  Always there helping new students and adjusting bands, our London Market studio simply wouldn’t be the same without her. Seeing Kathryn’s transformation brings tears to our eyes (ok who are we kidding, full-out bawling!). Stories like these are a shining example of why we’ve incorporated clean-eating into the Rev culture.  So many unstoppable people bring their whole hearts into workouts then find themselves disappointed with their lack of results.  Add a little clean-eating and BOOM!  Members uncover the strength and definition they’ve had all along. Kathryn is the second prize winner of our 2015 Revkor™ Summer Shred, and her results speak for themselves.  But she also wins for being such an integral part of revNATION.  Congrats Popo…we love you!  You inspire so many! Two years ago I had no idea how much of an impact this workout was going to have on my life.   Two years ago I tried my first class with a friend who was my main motivator for working out.  I had never found a workout that I could stick to for longer than a few months but luckily, I had that friend beside me motivating me to keep going and somehow, after that first hump of getting used to the movements...
