The Take-Back Smackdown

The Take-Back Smackdown

We’re taking it back and changing our thinking. We’ve talked about damaging ideals, dieting obsessions, and the way the industry wants us to measure and weigh ourselves like meat at the deli counter. What’s the big thing you’re taking back?  In what ways are you letting go of the BS? What if we stopped telling ourselves, “I’ll be happy when…”? What would life be like if we stopped comparing from a place of discouragement, and started believing, aspiring and striving? We’ve all caught ourselves having internal dialogue… “Once I: drop ten pounds have ripped abs fit into those jeans sail through burpees quit my job buy that car… I’ll be happy. I’ll be who I want to be.” There’s nothing wrong with these aspirations.  Maybe you’ll legit feel killer fitting into those badass jeans; maybe sailing around in those fancy new wheels will bring hours of road-trip pleasure. What we need to take back is the idea that we are somehow “less than” NOW. Just because we want to evolve, it doesn’t mean that we currently suck. Am I right?  Changing our thinking isn’t easy, but Revvers have superpowers.  Let’s go back to the GET Force, shall we? We don’t HAVE to drag our heels on the long road to where we want to be.  Let’s remind ourselves every day: I GET to be STRONG ENOUGH to be on this fitness journey. I GET to experience these personal challenges, and test my resolve.  I GET to aspire to all kinds of things, and today, I GET to feel good knowing that I am one superstar badass Rebel who’s driven and...
The GET Force

The GET Force

Spin it right. The alarm goes off.  After pressing snooze 2 or 15 times, we lay there for a second all cozy under the covers when - WHAMMO -  the endless list makes its appearance.  “Oh man,” we think.  Then it goes a little something like this: I HAVE TO: get up shower dress make lunches battle road construction traffic meet that deadline deal with that jackass (insert frustrating person from of the day) find time for a workout eat kale take the kids to hockey call my mother in law shovel the driveway ….. We’ll stop here; we all know just how long the list is EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.  The anxiety sets in. The dread. How the hell are we going to get this all done?  Why don’t we have a 24/7 butler? The GET Force works like this. We don’t have to, Rebel.  WE GET TO.  People who crush life the hardest are the ones with a POSITIVE OUTLOOK.  Nourishing food, careers we love, workouts that feel incredible…all these facets in life are things we GET to have and do. We know this but man, it gets overwhelming some days. Know what else we GET to do?  Say NO. Pay that kid across the street to shovel; ask for help on that project; say no to traffic - walk or carpool.  We can also QUIT.  Sometimes quitting is one of the most renegade things we can do.  Stale friendships, a boring course, soul-sucking projects…how would we feel if we started cutting the cord on things that don’t motivate and energize us? Part of being a Rebel is choosing what we GET TO...
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....
