Tired of fitspiration? So are we…
“Actions prove who someone is. Words just prove who they want to be.”
Emblazoned on our front wall, you will find the message “Now Prove It – 2015″ To the outsider peeking inward, these words could easily be interpreted as run-of-the-mill motivational jargon. Quotes such as these are usually categorized under “fitspiration” and are designed to reinforce norms within the box gym culture, such as working out insanely, eating a strict/boring diet, and living a spartan lifestyle in order to reach a goal.
At Rebar, we take a profoundly different approach. Our mission is to enrich and broaden the definition of fitness; to help people live better lives through increasing practical physical capability while cultivating a fuller awareness of body and mind. In short, we update your “software” right alongside the “hardware” and create a purpose-driven path toward becoming “fit.”
We execute our mission through a classic motif: the experienced mentor who guides the student, exuding a powerful combination of tough love and compassion to create profound self-improvement. Our magic lies in our ability to empower you to transform purely physical goals into spiritual ones…leading to the types of actions that allow each of us to live more effortlessly in accordance with our deep values and true nature.
We all know words are cheap. “Now Prove It” is really a message to ourselves; a reminder that Rebar is our own proving grounds in as much as it is about our student’s space of growth.
We hope you’ll join us in our journey.
