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?

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.

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 [...]

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 [...]
