WHAT EXACTLY IS RECON?
WHAT EXACTLY IS RECON?
Eight years ago, REFIT Instructors from around the globe gathered together for the 1st annual REFIT Convention known as RECON. Each RECON is a unique experience combined with valued traditions such as the RECON Instructor Showcase, themed Experience Classes, and “camp mail.” RECON attendees year after year rave about the palpable energy and positivity, deepening friendship and community connections, and the thought-provoking breakout sessions that expand thoughts and enhance perspectives.
To answer the question, “What is RECON?” – here’s an overview:
The unofficial (yet official) RECON kick-off event. With Dallas, Texas being only 90 minutes up the road from Waco, previous attendees have made the pilgrimage to the REFIT HQ + Studio, aka “the mothership.” Attendees should plan for a full day of local activities and special events around Waco like a city-wide scavenger hunt, REFIT Studio tours, and a live workout, plus activities with local “friends of REFIT” businesses. Attendees typically spend the day in Waco and head back to Dallas after the live workout at the REFIT Studio. It’s a long, but well-loved day!
The fun begins and the excitement is uncontainable as guests experience a rowdy registration, vibrant installations, and engaging interactives. Small groups are formed to ensure an intimate feel, and the opening ceremonies bring the pulse and energy of RECON to life. The day culminates with a 90-minute themed Experience Class with all new music, choreography, and costumes. Your head may not hit the pillow before midnight, and you won’t regret a single moment!
Day 2 is powered by coffee and adrenaline. Attendees will experience both general and breakout sessions. Topics range from personal growth to professional development to instructor-specific topics to themed choreography sessions. Each attendee will get to pick their favorite sessions to attend in person, but all will be available via RECON Demand when the event is over. Lunch is provided on-site and dinner is on your own. Fuel up because Saturday Night’s 90-minute Experience Class is followed by a new tradition: CLUB REFIT. This year, DJ JRED is BACK and will be bringing the house down.
It’s so hard to say goodbye, and so the final day of RECON is filled with reflection and meaningful moments. In addition to the closing ceremonies, attendees will experience a choreography workshop and a live REV+FLOW workout. There are, of course, several surprises built into the final day – all of which are intended to create unforgettable memories for each and every attendee.
