Studio Revolution Fitness is the new kid on the block when it comes to a fitness studio. With the popularity of spin and yoga dominating the scene, Studio Revolution is taking a different approach. When a friend introduced owner Mallory Chapman to Surfset, she knew it was the direction she wanted to take.
“I always had a dream of opening up a space but was never sure what was in it; there is tons of yoga, spin, and it wasn’t necessarily my passion,” Chapman says. Once certified, the personal trainer started working Surfset into her clients’ sessions, completely fell in love and opened the studio a few months later.
“Embrace the wobble” is one of the first things you will hear from the instructors at Revolution Fitness. “A lot people aren’t sure what they have signed up for when they walk in the studio,” she explains. The product is surf based, but you are not in water. The best way to explain it would be balancing on a surfboard on top of a bosu ball. It’s a fusion of surf technique, yoga, strength and boot camp that will get your heart rate up and dripping sweat. The average class can burn between 400-500 calories in 45 minutes.
Seven different Surfset classes – ranging from yoga based, bootcamp and building your core – cater to a wide range of people of all fitness levels. If you are looking for something different to do on a Friday night, Drop and Pop offers a live DJ playing old school hip hop to get your sweat on to. They offer TRX training, and bootcamp to round out the studio. Be sure to try it out, but be warned: they will whip your ass into shape and after the first couple of classes you will be slow to get out of bed in the morning. After a couple of them, you will begin to feel stronger and more confident in your practice and your life.
