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 [...]

Revocycle’s Idea of Fun In Spinning

'Fun' is not the goal of a Revocycle class. Is it shocking to you that we said that?   Call us crazy, but we don't think an instructor screaming obscenities is fun.
