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. With each turn of the [...]

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 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, [...]

Would You Take A Barre Class From Someone Who Thinks Barre Is Dumb?

Revocycle is 180 degrees opposite of the hottest trends in the Spinning industry. We couldn't be more different from your average SpiritCycle, ThrobCycle, OnFireCycle, SexCycle, or whatever else they're calling them.   A little history- all of these are total ripoffs of SoulCycle, the NYC company that pioneered the idea that cycle instructors don't need to know [...]

You Should Never Rent Spin Shoes

  If you have ever ridden a bike for exercise, you bought these shoes for your riding.   Take a look at the cleat on your rented Spin shoe. You'll see that it has little bolts and screws to adjust it. Why do you think it is that every cycling shoe sold has adjustable cleats? [...]
