The Lindegren sisters (Samantha, Rebecca and Jessica) grew up playing three seasons of contact sports, and their mom, Mariah, kicked her daughter’s butts from time to time. Now that the girls are older, they’ve all committed to spending more time together to feel great, fit, and live a healthy lifestyle.
Their solution? Attending Kira’s RIP Ride every Tuesday and Thursday night for the last three months. Their high energy has been so infectious that they’ve started a high five-ing trend at the end of each RIP Ride. Read about how Revolve has brought these strong, athletic women even closer.
1. How did Revolve classes become a family affair?
My sister’s friend, April McHugh, cycles at Revolve, and she gets the credit for introducing us. We’ve been riding for about three months and it’s already a family affair! We’ll visit each other and ride together at either Revolve DC or Revolve NYC.
2. Who is the motivator in the group? How does Revolve help you bond?
We all motivate each other. My sisters and I are very close in age so we grew up doing everything together and still try to do so to this day. We organize weekend trips away whether it’s skiing or somewhere relaxing. The four of us are all in a group chat on our phones and are always texting/asking advice for workouts, how-to’s, etc.
Riding at Revolve is another way for us to be together. Since exercise is a huge part of our lives, we accomplish two things – spend time together and exhaust ourselves with a great workout. We usually have dinner together after class.
3. Did you all work out together before Revolve? What made you start indoor cycling?
My sisters and I have been skiing since we were two years old, so “working out” started at a very young age. Now the four of us work out regularly; my mom and Jesse run road races together, and we all love cycling.
We visit Chatham on Cape Cod often since Mom is from there, and we’ll usually jump on the bike path for the day. It’s a beautiful ride and so much fun. One time, I tied a rope to Rebecca’s bike and she pulled me for 30 miles on my rollerblades! The looks we got were hysterical.
Indoor cycling together is fun and challenging. I was getting bored of my usual routine (running or rollerblading) so indoor cycling got me excited again.
4. What is it about Revolve that keeps you coming back?
Kira and the friendly staff at Revolve! Also, the post-ride exhaustion, which I compare to how I feel after yoga, which is weird because they are completely different workouts. My muscles feel equally as great after both!
