Revolve is committed to giving back and supporting the efforts of non-profits in our communities. We’ve worked with many inspiring organizations to host charity rides and fundraise for important causes. However, we’d like to announce our commitment to one cause that is both incredibly urgent and especially close and relevant to us as a health and fitness focused service.
Today, the Revolve Team and Family is proud to share our commitment to reducing, reversing, and rethinking the impact of childhood obesity.
Why is this cause important to Revolve?
According to the CDC, childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and has tripled in adolescents in the past 30 years.
By 2010, more than one third of children and adolescents were overweight or obese.
Some of our instructors have overcome weight problems in their own lives. Some also have kids and understand the daily challenge of teachings children healthy habits. We can’t think of better people than our instructors to help inspire young people to reverse unhealthy lifestyle patterns.
At Revolve, we strive to create an innovative and inspiring experience to help people reshape and rethink their lifestyles. We hope to support organizations who find ways to innovate and rethink the way our nation tackles this important challenge.
We’re excited to kick-off our commitment to this important cause by inviting you to a special ride to benefit HealthClass2.0 on Sunday, May 5th. HealthClass is an innovative public school program, based in NYC at Eugene Lang College, which teaches students how to transform their lives with healthy food and exercise. Their trainers go into schools and lead exhilarating workouts, provide healthy snacks and lead educational discussions. It’s a wonderful organization, but they need your help to grow!
To sign up for the benefit ride, led by Dyan Tsiumis, please follow the instructions HERE.
The Revolve Team is proud to support this event, and this cause. Look for more Revolve special events and initiatives in the future focused on reducing, reversing and rethinking the impact of childhood obesity.
The 15th Annual Clarendon Day is coming up this Saturday, September 22nd. Promoters of the event are boasting that this will be its biggest and best iteration yet. There will be something for everyone which also includes a unique (and awesome) indoor cycling meets outdoor experience. In addition to 10K/5K/Kid’s Dash event, four outdoor rides to live music* are also available for our Arlington community fitness enthusiasts. That’s right! We’re literally taking 20 of our bikes to the streets of Clarendon. Will you choose the 12 PM Barre Ride or 1:30 PM Complete Body Ride? Or maybe you’re planning to sleep in like whoa after that crazy Friday night you’ve got lined up (don’t we all have these planned early in the week to attach to that joy that Mondays try to kill?) and prefer the 3 PM Complete Body Ride?
You can also take your chances for the 4:30 PM FREE Community Ride. Remember it’s first come, first ride so don’t be late! Lovers of the free concept can also contact firstname.lastname@example.org for info on helping out from 10 AM -12 PM and/or 5:30 PM – 7 PM in exchange for free rides. In addition to four classes, there will be four rider challenges where Revolve will raffle off some goodies and discounts on apparel. Space is limited as lugging more 20 bikes out to Clarendon Boulevard (parallel to CVS) was a no go. This mean you best book your spot ASAP. To do so, visit www.revolvefitness.com/ and select Reserve Now. Looking forward to seeing you at Clarendon Day!
