BOTTINEAU — Revolution Cycle + Fitness, 1828 Marshall St. NE, celebrated it grand opening on Sept. 29 with a party at Urban Eatery. The fitness studio opened in May after founder Dawn Doll’s previous fitness business, 501, outgrew its space inside of 501 Fit on Washington Avenue. Revolution Cycle + Fitness is more than just a larger version of 501 Spin, said Doll. Revolution Cycle is built around a form of exercise called metabolic training.
“It’s the reason behind why we call ourselves Revolution,” said Doll. “It means think different about how you exercise. When you metabolically train, you burn way more calories after you exercise.”
Doll has been working in the fitness industry for nearly 10 years and said Revolution Cycle was the first fitness studio in the Twin Cities to offer equipment like the RealRyder, an indoor cycle that moves like a real road bike, causing the user to burn more calories. The studio also features equipment like the Krankcycle for upper-body workouts, as well as classes in non-cycling workouts like, yoga, pilates, kettlebells and more.
Doll said one reason Revolution offers a variety of workout classes is that members of specialized gyms often have more than one membership to meet all their exercise needs. She said 95 percent of Revolution clients work out exclusively at the studio, most three or four times per week.
“We’re here to bring something different to the Twin Cities,” she said.
