Revelution has introduced the TRX suspension training system to Revelstoke.

Fall into fitness with Revelution

Fitness and outdoor buff Stephanie China opens new gym Revelution with focus on cycling, pilates and strength.

Just in time for the fall rains, Revelution, Cycle|Pilates|Strength, has opened its doors to the community, providing another option for indoor fitness. Setting themselves apart from the rest, their classes include indoor cycling, TRX suspension training, pilates, yoga and a variety of fusion classes pairing these disciplines together.

Once a vision of Stephanie China’s (Keen-A), now coming into fruition with the help of husband and business partner, Jeff Honig, Revelution is set to amp up the fitness environment bringing enthusiasm along with new elements.

Growing up as a figure skater, dancer and downhill ski racer as a child, training was always a big part of China’s life. This, along with a mother who taught aerobics, helped develop her passion for activity and fitness.

Her desire to create experiences with others led her to guiding whitewater rafting, hiking and joining the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (ACMG) as an Assistant Ski Guide.

Honig, also a member of both the International Federation of Mountain Guides Associations (IFMGA) and the ACMG, is the operations manager at Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing. The couple came together through their passion for skiing and rock climbing, mountain biking and travelling around the world.

The birth of the couples’ first child made China decide guiding and being away from home was not where she wanted to be.

“I didn’t want to miss out on anything” she says, so she decided to stay at home. While parenting, China chose to take her pilates instructor certification and began teaching.

With both of them being avid skiers, bikers and climbers, it was doubtful parenthood would prevent them from moving on with their next adventure for too long. Now, their children a little older, it was time for China to make her next move. “I always knew I wanted to have a gym… and having turned 40, I just needed to do something.”

China can now add certified indoor cycling, Can Fit Pro Fitness and TRX Group Suspension instructor to her list of credentials. Supported by experienced staff, China and Honig hope that Revelution can be a place people can get excited about and have fun training.

With 12 top of the line Schwinn, chain-driven cycling bikes and 12 TRX stations, Revelution is focusing on small-group fitness, incorporating functional training to replicate movement in everyday life. Their cycling classes offer fun, low-impact cardio to upbeat music, while their pilates classes aim to strengthen and develop core muscles critical for alignment, posture and stability.

The TRX suspension system was developed by a Navy Seal and helps build strength, balance and stability simultaneously, leveraging gravity and one’s own body weight to modify the amount of impact; making it extremely beneficial for rehabilitation.

With their self-motivating attitudes, China and Honig hope to carve out a niche market with their offerings, while encouraging all levels of ability to become engaged in building better bodies.

Check out their website www.Revelution.ca for class schedules and online booking, or stop in and check out the space at 113 Second Street East, Unit C, and meet China herself; this powerhouse is full of positive energy and ready to share her knowledge and fervor with others.
