GRIT: for your best-ever workout

What is GRIT?

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is taking the nation by storm.

And for Inspiring healthy lifestyle members, GRIT - your HIIT - is completely free!

GRIT workouts are short, fast and provide better results than any other training.

Inspiring healthy lifestyles leisure centres offer Les Mills GRIT Series - the hottest HIIT program yet.

GRIT is a premium 30-minute small group personal training session designed to get you hot under the collar, pushing you to your limits.

There are three different sessions tailored to your needs:

  • GRIT Cardio burns up to 600 calories. It's an explosive workout for extreme fat burn. Better yet, you'll keep burning fat for hours afterwards.
  • GRIT Strength burns around 400 calories and offers a whole new level of muscle training, blasting all major muscle groups to leave you with lean, toned muscle.
  • GRIT Plyo burns around 500 calories. Plyo is based on Plyometrics and builds your powerful, agile, athletic body.

Why get GRIT?

GRIT's ideal if you don't have much time to work out - but you want to get fit and stay fit. Others love GRIT because it gets results quicker than any other training system.

All Les Mills classes are scientifically proven to get results. Every session features high-energy, chart-topping music. All our instructors at Inspiring healthy lifestyles leisure centres are fully qualified and hugely motivated, and bring to you the latest choreography to deliver a fantastic and fun-packed fitness experience.

Slow down ageing

Not only is GRIT amazing for getting in shape but, according to research, it can even help slow down ageing. Research published in the American Journal of Physiology shows that this type of training triggers mitochondrial biogenesis, a decline of which is common in aging.

Jon is a big fan of GRIT.

In just a few months, GRIT played a huge part in Jon losing six stones.

A sensible plan of nutrition and the support of Hindley personal trainer Matt McQuillan also helped Jon to his terrific transformation.

"GRIT interval training with Matt really helped me," said Jon.

"For the last nine months Matt has encouraged me and kept me in shape. He's the main factor in me losing weight.

"I would urge other people unhappy with their weight and health to get in touch with a gym. Start with an exercise class, as it's a great environment and you make some great friends."
