REVOlutionizing Spin With Freewheel Pedaling

In the 30 years since Spinning was invented by Johnny G, EVERY Spin bike has been fixed-gear. What does that mean?   It means the heavy flywheel is literally locked to your pedals- and your legs. Once it's turning, it helps you pedal. And all you need to do is to push down a little [...]

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 [...]

A New Paradigm In Cycling Classes: How To Get Fit On A Bike…..And Be Calm

Revocycle is simply the most effective, safe and powerful indoor cycling program in the country. And the most zen. We're a complete reimagining of what you think Spin class is.   Our simple question, why is more loudness, more flashing lights and uncertified 'Rockstar Instructors' yelling, screaming and cursing the standard in Spin classes?   Why do they [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Your Cycling Class Isn’t Getting You Fit

You may not realize it, but your cycling class is not a cycling class and you aren't pedaling a bike.  We can prove it to you.   Take your outside bike for a ride and try some 'tap backs' or 'obliques' as you are out of the seat pedaling. You can't do it. Pedal your bike [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]
