Revolution Fitness: Surf’s Up in Calgary

Ask anyone who surfs and they’ll tell you there’s nothing better than catching a nice set off a beach break, which is why many of us spend our vacations and bank savings chasing waves in sunny locales around the world. If this sounds like you and you’re getting ready for your next big trip to Bali, SoCal or insert any other coastal paradise of your choice, we have great news for you: there’s a cool new way to get in shape right here in town without having to deal with swimming lanes or chlorine. Revolution Fitness has just opened up on 17th Avenue and the studio offers a stellar selection of SurfSet classes along with TRX, personal training and bootcamps.

SurfSet is all the rage right now and got its big break on Season 4 of ABC’s Shark Tank. The custom board sits roughly 11 inches off the ground and is meant to simulate the feeling of being out on the water. At Revolution Fitness, the classes focus on working your core while building and toning the muscles you’ll need for hitting the waves. For conditioning yourself, you’ll love the Ripped Tide class that involves balancing on the board while working on your strength and endurance with kettle bells and resistance bands. The Sunday Shred class is another great option that has you maneuvering between paddling, planks and popping up on your board. It’s safe to say that doing any of these classes will prep you for the real thing.

Even if you’ve never surfed before, SurfSet is still a great way to get in shape while having fun. The classes are geared towards all levels, offering modifications where necessary, and you’ll be so busy working on your balance that you won’t be watching the clock. Most of these classes are over before you know it, and if you’re looking for something that’s a little slower paced, the Surf Salutations class challenges you to get outside the comfort zone of your yoga routine by swapping your mat for a board as a base.

The studio is threw their opening party on May 3rd and is also offering one full week of unlimited classes for only $25 dollars.   

E-mail Revolution Fitness today to reserve your spot at the opening party and get ready to hang 10.
