New Uptown boutique fitness studio spins an intense workout for Houstonians
Houstonians looking for new ways to get ripped in Uptown have no shortage of options, thanks to a soon-to-open, celebrity gym TruFusion and now, a locally spun fitness gym.
Revolution Studio, a boutique fitness studio founded in Houston, will open a new location in Uptown Park on Saturday, August 10. The new gym will offer cycling, yoga, and strength training classes and will be open seven days a week.
The new Uptown location boasts 3,400 square feet of workout space and features Revolution Studio’s signature Cycle and Lotus Studios, locker rooms, and a retail boutique of fitness clothing and accessories, according to a release.
Revolution Studio offers three class formats. RIPPED is a high-intensity, circuit training class designed for a full-body workout. Classes hold up to 15 “warriors” and utilize dumbbells, bands, and medicine balls with lifting, squatting, pushing, and jumping movements to build body strength, per a release.
Meanwhile, The Cycle Studio, designed for 45- or 60-minute rhythm-based cycling classes, features 56 Stages bikes organized in stadium-style seating. The classes incorporate cardio, weights, and core strength paired with high-energy music.
Other workouts include yoga classes, which are heated and hold up to 28 “yogis” with a variety of props, including blocks and straps. RS Ride is a 45-or 60-minute rhythm-based cycling class.
Revolution Studio was founded by husband-and-wife duo and native Texans, Mitch and Kim Syma, who opened their first studio in Sugar Land in October of 2012. Revolution Studio currently operates in River Oaks, Memorial City, and Sugar Land.
“Our new studio at Uptown Park brings us closer to our clients in the uptown neighborhood,” said Kim Syma, in a statement. “Partnering with EDENS and bringing our high-energy cycle, creative Vinyasa yoga, and HIIT strength classes to Uptown Park offers convenient access to over 75 classes a week at Houston’s most sought-after fitness studio.”
