This is where things get real.

This is where things get real.

The people who inspire and motivate us the most always have one thing in common: perseverance.  Why  do we have this misconception that some people get all the luck?  That some people’s roads are smoother and flow more easier because they were gifted with the talent good fortune to reach the loftiest of goals? Any accomplished artist will say - they do not roll out of bed every morning and paint a masterpiece.  They try and fail a zillion times before finding their flow.  Writers struggle for days, months, sometimes years, throwing away endless drafts before finally finding the voice of a story.  Think of elite athletes - how many time do they fall, lose, bleed before becoming a champion? What elevates people to extraordinary is resilience and focus.  We have to believe in our goals, see ourselves reaching them, and stop at nothing to get where we believe we deserve to go. Our Rebellion goals are no different. What motivates you to push through your challenge?  Most of us start with a focus on inches or pounds, or maybe the desire to fit into a goal outfit.  But doesn’t something else completely take over? When we push through the hardest moves in revMIX, uncovering the strength that has always been there, we fuel a fire deep inside that is about so much more than how we look in our clothes.  We all want to quit - hell - it’s a lot easier to drop to your knees than crushing out ten more seconds of mountain climbers.  But when we choose to persevere, we prove to ourselves that we are extraordinary.  Quitting is...

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...
