Les Mills GRIT Series
If you are in RVA area, you may have seen this video clips in commercials running through local TV channels:
I’m a certified GRIT coach – I’m one of only five coaches who were the first to get certified in RVA area when the program first came out in 2012. There are still only five of us who are actively coaching and promoting, and we are so eager for other newer certified coaches in the area to be ready so we can all work together to get the words out about this fantastic program. We have created a facebook page designed to promote all GRIT programs in the area where the participants and public can also share and learn about the program: Facebook.com/RVAGrit.
Les Mills GRIT Series is a new training program designed by famous Les Mills empire that will push you to your max and more, challenging your body to get super fit super fast. It’s 30 minutes of hard push, challenging your body AND mind, led by certified GRIT coaches like myself. The GRIT coaches do the workout in a small team environment, providing one-on-one attention and motivation. Unlike some other high intensity training program, it is set to music. When the intensity of the workout, dramatic effects of music, and the camaraderie of the small team training come together, something magical happens, and I love experiencing it every single time I coach it.
It’s a great program for you if:
- You want to change in your current fitness routine and want to take your fitness to the next level
- You want extra motivation to push yourself outside of comfort zone
- You have a weight-loss or fitness goal to reach or trying to improve your athletic performance
- You just want to increase intensity from your current workout
It’s not for you if:
- You have a heart condition
- You have joint problems
- You are pregnant or trying to get pregnant
The science behind the GRIT Program is all around EPOC (Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption) which simply means you burn more calories AFTER your workout with GRIT. Read more about the science behind GRIT series here.
The GRIT series is currently offered only at Midlothian Athletic Club and coached by the four original GRIT certified coaches in RVA area. However, there will be a few more clubs in the area offering this wonderful program soon, coached by other amazing coaches and teams. And I can’t wait to kick some butts with all of the new coaches in the area! Stay tuned for more updates on when & where the program will be offered in RVA area by staying connected to CO2 Fit Facebook page.
