DEFINE’s New Revolution Workshops
Learn more about the new Revolution Workshops that’ll bring your fitness full circle with wowing results while having fun.
Looking for an exercise studio that offers variety and results in a fun environment? DEFINE body & mind may be just what you’re looking for.
According to co-owner Mikel Quast, the Oakley-based studio specializes in balanced fitness as well as excellent customer service to help you reach your fitness goals.
Henry Richardson developed and founded DEFINE body & mind in 2009. The former All-American and National Team Member for Springboard and Platform Diving found that after retiring from the sport and becoming a teacher in New York City, many of his injuries suffered while diving were still causing him discomfort and even affected his ability to enjoy his new career.
“With the encouragement of a friend, Henry began taking his first pilates/yoga/ballet hybrid class, Core Fusion,” explains Quast. “Six months later he taught his very first Core Fusion class, and within one year he was helping open locations across the country.”
After completing his teaching duties with Teach for America, Richardson moved back to Houston where he began his MBA at Rice University. Since then, he’s put a lot of thought and effort into bringing transforming exercise classes to those who want to define their bodies, minds and balance in order to look, feel and be at their best.
DEFINE Oakley is the eighth location and the first one outside the state of Texas. Quast co-owns the studio with Tallie Neltner. They wanted to bring DEFINE to the area with the goal of creating an atmosphere that inspires results and fosters community so they can help others achieve their maximum happiness.
The studio opened on April 2, 2014, and now, its latest classes – Revolution Workshops – are, pardon the pun, revolutionizing workouts. The Revolution Workshops are between 45 minutes and one hour long. During the classes, according to Quast, guests experience the ultra-effectiveness of the DEFINE body class into the bike combined with the principles of isometrics from cardio blasting and high-intensity fun. “For 45 minutes, DEFINE Revolution features choreographed movements to high-energy music on a stationary bike for a full body workout,” he adds.
The next DEFINE Revolution workshop will take place on February 13 with a 1-hour Couples Ride in honor of Valentine’s Day. The studio will host another workshop on February 28 with a 1-hour Diva Revolution Workshop. You can find more information here.
Quast says the cost of a class varies depending on the length of the workshop, but they typically start at $25. Other packages and pricing options are listed on their website.
