How to stop.

How to stop.

When being strong means doing nothing at all. Twice each year we launch an 8 week challenge in our studios.  With the Rebellion, there’s no goal outfit, or tracking of pounds and inches, and certainly no going hungry.  Instead, we follow an 8 step coaching process designed to help us think more positively, set goals more effectively, and create healthy habits that can sustain us far beyond the 8 weeks. Most of us don’t realize how conditioned we’ve been to have a love-hate relationship with food and fitness, two things which should bring us so much joy! Here’s the hardest part. We might think that the most demanding part of a challenge like this is being diligent about meal prep, learning how to do some pretty tough fitness moves, or staying the course over a girl’s weekend or trip south. It’s not. There’s one thing that so many of our new Rebels struggle with, but our returning challengers even more.  Once we’ve created this gutsy, unstoppable Rebel lifestyle, what happens when we need to STOP? Sometimes real life happens, right?  Sometimes it’s something simple that slows us down, like a cold or an achy knee from an old injury. And sometimes it’s not simple one bit.  Real life includes losses, divorces, ups and downs with health, or attending to someone else’s needs. These things can throw us right off our game, so it’s vital that we remember this: We’re creating a healthy life.  Our bodies and our wellbeing need to be with us for the long-haul.  Sometimes the healthiest thing we can do is stop to heal, rest, and...
Up your game with Korboard.

Up your game with Korboard.

What Members are saying about Korboard. We believe it’s our job to keep reinventing our workout, delivering the most robust and dynamic fitness experience possible. This is why we were so pumped to add Korboard to our roster of novel programming in 2017.  If you’re a Revver, you know we love keeping you on your toes but when it comes to Korboard, you’re the ones surprising us.  Your results have blown our minds.  We could tell you all about the huge transformations we’ve seen, but we’re gonna let some of our hardcore Korboarders give you their full low-down. Jessica: As a hockey player, my body is used to moving in the same ways all the time. The Korboard’s cross-training benefits have been a huge wake-up call for my whole body, and my game.  Not only am I stronger in brand new ways, I have explosive strength in my legs, hips, and core like never before, which keeps me feeling motivated to work harder on my upper body strength, something I’ve always been lacking in the past (but building big-time with Revkor!). Tiffany: Korboard pushes you to your limit physically and mentally.  As a former athlete, this serious burn is something I missed.  There is something so humbling about being pushed to failure during your workout; it builds this fire in your gut that drives you to keep coming back to the board to improve.  I’ve noticed increased physical strength in big ways, but it’s the mental strength that has made a huge difference in my daily life.  Korboard has been a complete game changer for me. Meagan I’m not an...

The Weekend-Rebel Survival Guide!

The Weekend-Rebel Survival Guide!

Canadian’s love summer weekends. After all, our summer is like 5 seconds long.  Living healthy doesn’t mean we won’t revel in good times.  What does set us apart is that we’ll be among the few people who don’t feel like total sh!t Sunday night - who’s with us? THE HURDLES Knowing what our challenges will be before the weekend rolls up means we’re better prepared to crush. We asked Revvers for their top reasons for falling off the goal train: Peer Pressure: Kids aren’t the only ones who crumble…this was actually the top answer by a landslide.  “I feel lame having a soda water or a single cocktail when everyone else is indulging around the campfire. I don’t want to feel like the odd man out.”  Feel familiar? Temptation: If you’re cottage-bound, odds are friends and family will be firing up the barbecue and with cocktails flowing dock-side.  Hard to resist?  “My brother in law makes the world’s best ribs every May 24, I can’t imagine saying no.” Manners:  No one wants to feel like the annoying health fiend at the party, munching on carrot sticks and seed mix.  “It feels rude bringing my own meals when I’m a guest at someone’s cottage for the weekend.” THE STRATEGY   Get Real: We’re not here to tell you that you can let it rip all weekend long then press the Reset button Tuesday morning.  While it’s true that we can always choose a fresh start when we need one, part of being hardcore is making tough choices and going the extra mile.  We already know that success comes with hard work and dedication, there’s no getting...

Meet Our Recipe Maven, Lavinia Todor! Lavinia is a mom to two little girls; a serious picture at the bands, and has a passion for sharing healthy and delicious food!  Follow her on Instagram at lavi_fitmum. I suppose it all started with my first ever Revkor Shred this past summer. I was so pumped and excited about the challenge. I primarily posted photos of my food to keep myself accountable and push myself to be creative with my meals and keep them clean. I’m the type of person that when I love something, I love it, and eat it every day. Posting a picture every day for the full eight weeks kept me determined to come up with new, quick, and easy meals that were healthy.  Suddenly I started receiving recipe questions, and it made me happy to be able to inspire  and help someone else to eat healthy. Even more motivation to keep going! Now, eating clean is just part of our lives.  As a mom to two little ones, it gives me the much needed energy to keep up. No more feeling sluggish or tired all the time. What about feeding my family?  It wasn’t a hard transition for my husband to eat clean, since he eats just about anything. My girls on the other hand are very, VERY picky eaters. Offering them a wide range of clean foods and then offering them praise when they do try something has helped gently instil good eating habits over time. I try and just go with the flow with them as much as possible. Something I do when they haven’t eaten very balanced is make them...
