High intesity interval training has been proven to be one of best ways to lose weight fast, so what's it like at a GRIT gym class session?

If you're trying to lose weight to get bikini ready, or just want to get seriously fit GRIT will push you to your limits and closer to your goals.

If you're not afraid of sweating, looking quite gross, and are fully accepting of the old adage 'no pain no gain' then GRIT is for you.

What GRIT involves


GRIT is an intensive workout designed to push you to the point at which you desperately want to stop, and then making you go further.

Yeah, as we said, this is not for the faint hearted.

The workout consists of a combination of dynamic high intensity exercises, all on the floor as a group.

With some combos lasting as long as two minutes at your peak level, you will find it difficult. However, short rests and extreme encouragement from the instructor keep you going.

Lunges, squats and tuck jumps are just some of the drills at GRIT.



Give it a try if:


You really want to get fit and are not afraid of hard work. Equally, if you need someone spurring you on at all times - this guy had a microphone headset.

Give it a miss if:


Microphone headsets fill you with cringe and fear in equal measure. Also, if you're not fit enough to begin with, the process may be so difficult that it becomes disheartening.
