The Processed Food Trick..and Unprocessed Cycling Exercise

Revocycle is natural, organic cycling with no harmful additives.   Processed food makers add all kinds of sugar and salt to concoct the most powerful combinations of salty/sweet flavor to maximally trigger our natural desire for these flavors..... so you keep coming back for more. Of course, none of that is good for you, but you can't [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
