surf n' sweat | karleen

meet our beautiful, talented and f.i.t. soul sista karleen samson (@karleensamson) *applause* this badass babe isn't just a pretty face, she runs us through sweat sessions like it's her job - oh wait, it is. how she manages to get us to force our bodies past what we thought were our limits all the while gritting it out alongside the crew she's instructing, and smiling ever so sweetly of course is a secret she's keeping. well not really, you can experience it for yourself at both studio revolution and the sweat lab in calgary, ab.

yes those are surfboards…. on land - say what?! karleen is queen of SURFSET® - what's that you ask? SURFSET® is an indredibly unique workout, different than anything we've done to date. it combines elements of aerobic fat burning, lean muscle building, and balance & core training. never the same workout twice, studio revolution offers 45 minute sessions on an unstable surfboard using resistance bands, kettle bells, TRX, and surf (of course) yoga inspired moves.

one of our fav things about SURFSET® is that there are different levels of "instability" - you can adjust how stable the board is over time so once you feel that sense of accomplishment, mastering the beginner waves you get to paddle out to the big guys and feel like a rookie all over again ;)
