Power in Numbers with STRENGTH+Sole

Not all of us grew up athletic varsity athletes. In fact, many of our Riders struggled to connect to fitness for a long time before discovering something that felt right. Our philosophy at Revolve is that fitness is about people – finding that connection with the people around you will make or break a fitness experience.
One of our favorite fitness bloggers, Rachel, found that connection by introducing herself to instructors, sharing her fitness experiences with people online, and bringing friends and family along for the rideWe love Rachel’s blog, STRENGTH+Sole – check out how she went from fearing fitness to embracing the power of numbers with our first Guest Blog!

As a kid, I played one season of T-Ball and that was enough for me. In middle school P.E. class, I was THAT girl, who faked having to go to the bathroom when my turn inevitably came to serve in volleyball and turned bright red when the teacher inevitably yelled “Out!” after three strikes at bat in softball. I’ve always loathed the idea and caved under the (mostly, self-imposed) pressure of team sports.

Until now.

Through my fitness blog STRENGTH+Sole, I’ve done everything from CrossFit, boxing and indoor cycling to indoor rock climbing, trampoline jumping, bowling and skee ball. Every week, I make it my mission to push past my comfort zone–taking risks, climbing to the top, joining the team–and, loving it.
