Flow Or Distraction In Spin?

Revocycle starts with the core belief that exercise is amazing if we only tune into it.     This is the same mindset as yoga and barre classes. Weight lifting and running and hiking and skiing and climbing......same thing. A type of moving meditation of strength and focus.     Spin classes have lost that sense of being [...]

Our Two Assumptions About You And Cycling Classes

At Revocycle we assume you go to a cycle class to get fit using a bike. We would guess that you don't like being injured.   The Revocycle program is built around using a bike properly so that you get the most fitness from a cycle class and don't hurt yourself in the process. And we are, provably, the [...]

Alignment and the Flow State In Cycle Exercise

Barre and yoga are strenuous workouts built on alignment of the spine and good form so that you get the most out of the class and don't hurt yourself.   Barre and yoga instructors speak with a calm voice and cue you to check your form and alignment throughout class so you get into a deep focus and [...]

Intellectual, Sophisticated, Effective…Feminist?

Revocycle is a different kind of spin studio, and a different kind of fitness business. We're athletic, feminist, intellectual, authentically spiritual and totally lacking in trying to be cool.    Our background is not in 'fitness' culture. We come from academia and athletics; our founder taught at at top-ten national liberal arts college and has [...]

Style Versus Substance In Spinning

Revocycle is changing the world of Spinning toward a more substantive, informed, and powerful indoor cycling program. We're a product of Portland, OR...the craft food and beverage capital of America, and we bring the same craft sensibilities to our program.     The rest of the Spinning world is engaged in a race for more distraction [...]

When Was The Last Time Your Yoga Teacher Screamed “F__ck!’ In Class?

When was the last time your barre instructor twerked around the and room yelled at you? Are your barre and yoga classes 'just like a club'?     Our question here at Revocycle is why are good form, respectful instruction and professionalism the norm in barre and yoga classes, but in 'spinning' there is no concern about form [...]

Give The People What They Want, Or Teach Them What They Need…

Giving the people what they want isn't nearly as powerful as teaching people what they need. There's always a shortcut available, a way to be a little more ironic, cheaper, more instantly understandable. There's the chance to play into our desire to be entertained and distracted, regardless of the cost.... Or you can dig in, [...]
