BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Every fitness program strives to find that winning combination that will guarantee results. At Revolution, it’s a combination of spinning, TRX and teamwork. Co-owned by Amanda Moses, Collen Kirk, and Rachel McCrone, the studio was just an idea two years ago.
“She’s like, ‘I just don’t think that we could make this work,'” of Moses said of McCrone. “And we kind of sat down and said, ‘well what if we did though.’ Honestly that was what happened.”
Since then, they’ve expanded from a carriage house in the Elmwood Village, to a spacious studio on Main Street, and a second location in Williamsville. They’ve added yoga classes and personal training, but keep the focus on cycling and TRX strength training.
“We’ve always tossed the idea around should we get this in here should we do that, should we buy this should we buy that,” Kirk said. “But our philosophy is to be really good at a few things, and whoever likes those things will come to us.”
Each of the three co-owners teaches six classes a week — on top of their full time jobs outside the studio.
“Beyond the fitness classes, what we’re really driven every day is to make sure that we’re impacting the community, and that we’re building the community within Revolution,” Kirk told News 4.
These types of workouts require a good deal of equipment, but that doesn’t stop the team from occasionally taking the entire operation on the road.
Each bike weighs about 150 pounds, the co-owners will often packing them up in a truck, and bring them all over Western New York, wherever people are working out.
“We do it at Canalside, we’ve done Riverworks, we’ve got a couple things coming up at Larkin Square coming up in the summer and fall,” Moses explained. “We’ve gotten it down to the point where it’s no big deal for us anymore.”
Whether they’re at home or away, this revolution isn’t just about the exercise or the training regimen. It’s about the people that make it special.
“We see a lot of clients who didn’t know each other at all when we opened, going out on the weekends together, going on vacations together. Inviting to each others weddings. It’s amazing, it’s an awesome thing,” Moses said.
“It’s kind of like, we’re all in this team together, and it’s our role to make sure that’s happening, but organically it’s spreading down through our clients, and everyone is having a blast together.”
