Lynds-spiration…3 years of crushing!

  “Revkor immediately changed my perspective on exercise and my health.  I finally found a workout I enjoy, PLUS I see and feel the benefits every day.  I had no idea I could feel as great as I do.  Pain no longer gets in the way of my life.  I feel stronger and in better shape than I have in my entire life.” Meet Lyndsay, original Revver and one of two top winners from the 2015 Revkor Holiday Shred.   My Revkor journey began 3 years ago when my mom and I walked into a little studio in London.  Little did I know, my life would be changed forever. When I was 17, I hurt my back working in a grocery store.  At 19, I was finally diagnosed with degenerative disks in my upper back and neck.  They told me that my 19 year old disks were in the condition of a healthy 60 year old’s, and I was informed that disability would worsen with age.  The doctors said there was nothing they could do, but that I could control how quickly the injury worsened. It was recommended that I give up my dream to teach (which I did not) and stay away from any high impact activities.  I was even told that I would probably have to get a breast reduction later in life.  As such a young woman, I was horrified.  Eventually, I just accepted that I would have chronic pain for the rest of my life and there was nothing I could do about it.  The pain just became a way of life and I found ways...
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...
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...
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...
Revkor: “Mind Blowing Awesomeness.”

Revkor: “Mind Blowing Awesomeness.”

Meet Karen, our final winner of the Revkor™ Summer Shred! Karen found Revkor™ at Moksha Yoga Cambridge and never looked back.  Probably the happiest MIXer we’ve ever seen, Karen beams during lunge-punches and Heismans – she loves her workout and you can see it! Strong since the day we met her, Karen wins for her super-awesome Shred results and the unstoppable positive energy she brings with her to class every single day.  Congrats Karen!  Here, she shares her LOVE/hate intro to revMIX and reminds all of us why we should push through and Rev it Up! How do I get across how much I LOVE my Revkor workouts?  A couple of words quickly come to mind….mind blowing awesomeness!  RevMIX classes are like nothing in fitness I have ever experienced.  I admit, it started as a love/hate relationship!  I continuously questioned “why in the %$&!” am I doing this to myself?!!!” Then the workout is over and you experience that euphoric “YES” I can do anything! That is how revMIX started for me.  7 weeks later I find myself setting personal goals in many of the sequences .  It has evolved from a mindset of just getting thru the workout to “c’mon Karen you can push yourself harder and do more reps or go faster” – you get the point!!  The instructors are super pumped and motivating and that certainly helps my workout to get “revved” up, the sweat pouring and heart rate going!!  I love it!! I equally love revYOGA and revSPORT. The stretch and strengthening I get from these classes is amazing and a a great complement to MIX and...
