REBELLION: The Grind

REBELLION: The Grind

Week Two: Here comes the hustle. During Week One we kicked off with a single truth: The biggest successes in the world are born out of passion.  To succeed, we must LOVE what we’re doing.  Letting go of what holds us back, making space for all the good sh*t, and using The Get Force to keep a positive state of mind - this is how we get there. Here’s another truth we cannot change: The road to great success is paved with HARD WORK. This goes against everything the quick-fix solicitors have been telling us all our lives.  Any of this sound familiar? Do this 21 day detox and change your whole body for life! Take this course and change your whole career overnight! Take these supplements and burn fat just sitting! Sell these products on the side, you’ll get rich! Do what you love and the rest will follow! We’re sorry to break the news but all of this - yes, EVEN the last point - is BULLSH*T. Everything worth having comes from the hard work it takes to MAKE it happen.  No way around it.  As Rebels we not only accept this, we EMBRACE THE GRIND.  We’re not looking for short cuts or cheap solutions, we’re going for gold and loving (almost) every second of the journey. What holds us back? GUILT:  Turns out we FEEL BADLY focusing on our own goals, and would sooner put others first.  Don’t we deserve to be all we can? Isn’t that better for those around us? FEAR: Sometimes disguised as procrastination.  What if we fail? What if we don’t like what we uncover on the other side...

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...

ShredStar Tiffany: The Goal-Crusher.

ShredStar Tiffany: The Goal-Crusher.

  “I finished the year 2014 overweight, sad, and unhealthy. I told myself that 2015 would be my year to get out of the funk I had found myself living in.”   Meet Tiffany, one of two top winners from the 2015 Revkor Holiday Shred.  Before we tell you Tiffany’s story, we’ll let her hard work speak for itself: When we first met Tiffany, we knew something was up.  Always kind and reserved around the studio, she would hit the bands like a ferocious machine.  We weren’t surprised to eventually learn that she was a seriously accomplished athlete. “You would never know looking at my before picture that I’d been a competitive swimmer my entire life, competing at the national level as well as at an NCAA division 1 university in the USA. People often looked at me in disbelief when I told them my background, they could not believe I was an athlete. I was determined to change this.” When we think of Revkor #BallsAndSteam, this girl has it.  Determined to harness her academic potential, Tiffany hustled to become one of the nation’s most elite swimmers, earning her a scholarship at The University of Nevada, Las Vegas. In case the idea of going to school in Sin City conjures up ideas of all-night debauchery, you can guess again.  During her ten years in Vegas, Tiffany set hardcore goals for herself and crushed the hell out of them, one by one.  Over the decade she earned herself a double Masters in nursing and her MBA. She practiced nursing in a paediatrics emergency room - possibly as badass as it gets in our books…all while...
