Single Tasking Cycling Workouts For Better Fitness

A simple idea really that really goes against the tide in Spinning and indoor cycling:   What if you gave 100% of your attention to cycling form and effort in your cycling class?   The allure of multitasking in a cycle class- upper body work, core work, weight lifting- is easy to understand, but it's [...]

Revocycle Isn’t Spinning- It’s a New Cycling Movement Form

Revocycle isn't really Spinning.    Our bikes are different from Spinning, our reason for exercising is different, the way we present ourselves is different, the way we teach our classes is different, and our social media is different.   Revocycle was started by a Ph.D. biology professor who has ridden bikes for 25 years. Like many [...]

We’re Just Like Any Other ‘Spin’ Studio, Except For Everything……

Revocycle is upending Spin classes. Started by a 25 year cyclist with a Ph.D. in Biology, we're for people who want to use a bike to fit.    That, unbelievably, is unheard of in the industry.    Most cycling studios are started by people who have never ridden a bike for exercise, don't have any Spinning [...]

What Is Revocycle Freewheel Pedaling?

You may not have realized it, but every Spin bike you've ever ridden is fixed-gear, which means the 50lb flywheel on the bike is literally locked to your pedals.   Once you get the wheel turning, it has huge momentum. You can feel the force of it by trying to suddenly stop your legs in a [...]

Moving Toward A New ‘Fitness’ Culture

We don't know if you've noticed, but fitness culture is fixated on bodies, celebrities, expensive outfits and #fitness hashtags of 'beautiful' people posing on Instagram.   In gym and Instagram culture 'fitness' isn't about being strong and athletic ....it's about being hot and obsessing about sexy bodies.   Our founder has been an athlete his entire life: football, basketball, [...]

Spectacle, Distraction and Bad Form In Spin Class

Spin studios are engaged in a distraction and spectacle arms race- more flashing lights, louder sound, wilder 'dance moves', less clothing, more Victoria's Secret models.   Every day a new studio opens somewhere with some new shiny thing to better entertain you and distract you from what you're actually doing.

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
