Everything we do, we believe in challenging the status quo. We believe in thinking differently. We believe running doesn’t just change people’s waistlines or give them a faster PR to brag about; it changes their lives. Running empowers us to narrow the gap between who we are and who we want to be, who we believe ourselves to be. Running enables us to imagine a life that does not yet exist. Through running, we fulfill our destiny as physical beings, and on the foundation of a fitter physical being, we can build a better life.
The way we challenge the status quo to empower you is by using science and a deep understanding of how physiology works, how running works. Because what may seem so simple is extraordinarily complex. And so we produce the best running education on the planet. When you earn the REVO₂LUTION RUNNING™ certification, you get the best, because what we do serves as the proof of what we believe. Want to try us out?
WHAT’S IN A NAME?
As Shakespeare’s Juliet asked, “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”
At the heart of the REVO₂LUTION RUNNING™ certification is its name, which includes an acronym of the 3 physiological factors that determine running fitness and performance:
RUNNING ECONOMY | VO₂MAX | LACTATE THRESHOLD
If it were called by any other name, it would smell as sweet and still be the best in the industry.
