The Un-Recipe Recipe Series: Colleen's Grilled Salad

You know all the ways we like to sweat. But what is the RevTeam eating to fuel our bodies through all that physical activity? We'll be sharing some of our favorite meals and snacks more regularly, with easy to follow "un-recipes." This is how we're "cooking" - and we're betting you are too!

No grill? No problem. Make this dish any season of the year with a grill pan on the stove top. You'll still get those pretty char marks, with the convenience of heating up the chicken-pepper mix right in the same pan!

Colleen's Grilled Salad 
One romaine heart (sliced in half) and brushed with olive oil + salt and pepper
Sliced roasted red peppers (we use Wegman's jarred red peppers)
Leftover chicken breast from last night's dinner
4 slices of thin prosciutto

1. Give us a quick background on yourself.
I am a crazy dog mom to an almost 3-year old English bulldog and have lived in Buffalo my entire life but I do love to travel. I am also a die hard Buffalo Bills fan. In the past I was never one to be healthy or the type who went to the gym. My fitness journey began about 8 years ago when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease. It was at that time my perspective on being healthy totally changed and now I try to incorporate as many healthy habits into my daily routine as possible - Rev being one of my very favorites!

2. Describe your best workout ever in just three words.
Pain for days.

3. What song(s) are you obsessed with right now?
Closer by The Chainsmokers
Good Girls by Elle King
Needed Me by Rihanna

4. Is there a mantra that motivates you?
Your life unfolds in proportion to your courage.

5. Any healthy habits to start/end your day?
I love a good smoothie to start my day and a sweaty Rev ride to end it!

6. Favorite move on the TRX?
Anything involving leg work!

7. Favorite Buffalo Food Truck?
Lloyd's Taco Truck

8. This or that?
Rosé or margaritas? Both. I don't discriminate when it comes to alcohol????
Hip-hop, Pop, Oldies or EDM for spinning? Hip-hop always.
Tap backs or isolations? Tap backs are my favorite.

Who Loves Indo-Row®? We Do!

Row, row, row your way into one of the best cardio and strength workouts around - with Indo-Row® at RevExpress. The first gym/studio to offer this workout format in the Northtowns, we're excited to share all of the good-for-you benefits of adding Rev's Indo-Row classes to your current workout routine.


revJADA-66

How long is an Indo-Row class?

45 minutes! We know what you're thinking "45 minutes? Are they for real about this?" And yes, we totally are for real! This unique class format captures all the elements of on-water rowing, and bundles them into a fast-paced, competitive, measurable workout. Per our friends at Indo-Row HQ, "From 'Skills and Drills' to “Waves and Recoveries,” and the final build up to a friendly but competitive 'Race' Indo-Row quickly converts first-timers to devoted team members."

Who can do Indo-Row?
Anyone! This class is designed to challenge experienced rowers, but 100% appropriate for anyone without experience. (That's what our certified instructors are here for - to help you learn how to Indo-Row safely, effectively and efficiently.)

How do I know I'm getting better at Indo-Row?
Each machine features the Indo-Row® Race/Pace Coach monitor that provides feedback on pace, distance and calories, so you can gauge improvement in each class and over time. Snap a photo of your screen before you leave class - you'll start to see progress quickly. 

Indo-Row Fast Facts
Burn approximated 400-800 calories/Indo-Row class
The rowing stroke uses 9 major muscle groups and 84% of your muscle mass
Kind to your body - rowing removes body weight and impact from joints of the hips knees and ankles as a seated exercise
Full body functionality - 60% legs, 20% core, 20% arms

Say Hello to Revolution Express!


Revexpress


One big, happy RevFamily.  
We're so excited to finally be sharing the news - RevAtJada has a brand new name a fresh new look and feel! "RevolutionExpress" helps our clients and the community tie our suburban studio to our downtown studio and larger Rev brand into one RevFamily.

revJADA-37

Cool, so RevAtJada has a new name: Revolution Express. What else?
Most importantly, RevolutionExpress will have it's own, lower pricing structure. Anyone with a RevCity unlimited month/class pack can still attend classes at either location. However, there is now an opportunity to purchase classes for use exclusively at RevolutionExpress. It's a smaller space, with fewer (but pretty amazing!) classes offered per week. We feel our prices should reflect that.

NEW Pricing for RevolutionExpress:
Single Class: $10
10 Class Package: $80
20 Class Package: $130
Unlimited Month: $65
These packages will be for use at our RevolutionExpress location only. 

What if I already have a class pack purchased at the RevCity rates?
Don't worry! Those packages can be used at either location. It is only the RevolutionExpress packages that are limited to the RevolutionExpress location.

ROWING IS COMING!
revJADA-65

In just a few weeks you will see RevRow popping up all over our RevExpress schedule! We are proud to announce that we are the first studio to offer Indo-Row formatted classes in the Northtowns! Indo-Row is the perfect cardio compliment to our indoor cycling and TRX classes - with measurable results. Learn more here and keep your eyes open for details headed your way on this excited new way to Rev it up in the Northtowns!

Please reach out to us at info@revolutionbuffalo.com with questions and suggestions. Thanks for all your support and help spreading this exciting news!

Monday Motivator: Meet Lindsay

It's Monday everybody! Let's kick it off with Lindsay, who we can't say enough nice things about. She is dedicated and well-rounded when it comes to her Rev classes - mornings/nights/RevCity/RevExpress. Whether she's coming with her sister Miranda (a previous Monday Motivator herself!) or solo, she's always ready to work. An even bigger testament to her work ethic: she turned 21 this summer and kicked off that milestone birthday with back-to-back classes.
