rEvolution Gym

Higher Standards . Elite Training . Extraordinary Results


Revolution Gym was forged:

  • To breach conventional ideals of fitness.

  • To inspire and lead those willing to have a positive acceptance of pain & discipline through athleticism.

  • To embrace a lifestyle that will extinguish mediocrity & complacency.

  • To evolve one's perception of extraordinary feats to one's ordinary acts.

  • To conquer lofty goals with humility, and add those experiences to the steps that will build a stairway to a limitless life.


CHOOSE THE HARD ROAD...

ALL THINGS WORTHWHILE WILL HAVE MOUNTAINS, ROUGH TERRAIN, PITFALLS, AND UNCHARTED TERRITORY... FACE THE WIND, STARE INTO THE SUN, & BLAZE YOUR TRAIL.  THIS IS YOUR REVOLUTION...

WHAT LIFE WILL YOU CHOOSE?

"You can drown here." "Stay down." "You're alone."  "Give up."  "Quit"...

These voices scream to some of us internally as well as externally. For some, a lifetime.  For others, that choose to rage back, to never let their fire extinguish, to burn brighter, longer, stronger...     This is your life. 

Self discovery of one's true purpose in this life may have come easy for some of you.  What are you now doing with it?  What drive do you possess to break through convention and stand among the kneeling?  What disciplines do you practice to hone your skills mentally, physically & spiritually?  What diligence are you daily applying to your craft?

Revolution is the playground in which the physical objectives transcend the mind and the spirit through drive, discipline, and diligence.  Higher standards demand your inner flame's presence and a learned ability to ignite the afterburners. 

Complacency, the mundane, ignorance of the self, and marching with the "lemmings", are all killers, extinguishers of your flame...

Evolve or Die.

100% ONE PERCENTER

I wasn't supposed to make it out alive...

Lower middle class, latch key kid, drunk abusive step dad... Blah, Blah, Blah...

DOESN'T MATTER..

YOUR PAST DOES NOT MATTER.

The past no more matters than that you are still here, like me, running, sprinting, sometimes crawling & clawing for every inch, every glorious bit of sunlight to shine on your face.  I've made a life of it... Fighting.

There always is that choice.  The choice to lay down, to fold, to quit.  Some do... I didn't. 

MY PURPOSE IS TO TEACH YOU TO GET BACK UP.

Nothing will hit you harder than life itself.  Hit back.  I personally had to be beat down over & over & over before I let go... Let go with a flame that to this day burns as bright as the sun.  It's not rage.  It used to be cloaked as rage, hatred, ego, and self pity.  All along it has been love.  The love for the wind in my face, burning lungs, aching limbs, calloused hands, feet & soul.  The love for the next big thing... To make it, break it, and raise those around me to their next level.  Leveling up doesn't always feel good...  Sometimes, more often than not, it hurts.  Learning to accept the pain, revel in it, smile and shake it's hand will allow you to be accomplished... DAILY.

So "head down & hands up" my friend... Your next fight is about to start... START YOUR REVOLUTION.


 
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
— THEODORE ROOSEVELT
