What's the GRIT™? 2014-10-07
Earlier this year we were offered the option to mix the three GRIT™ formats (Cardio, Strength and Plyo), essentially giving us nine extra combinations, to challenge our participants and push them to their limits.
As long as the facility is licensed across the Series, Instructors who are trained in GRIT™ Series can coach all three programs and are welcome to mix formats to offer their participants variation in another 30 minute High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT).
How will a facility benefit from the GRIT™ Mix?
The mixing of GRIT™ provides facilities with something no other program will, the seamless integration of three programs in one, giving you another program offering for no additional cost. Now instead of having three HIIT offerings, you have nine, without even having to engage any additional GRIT™ Coaches. That’s a great selling point in an age where we know Millennials are seeking quick, authentic, results driven training. Schedule an additional GRIT™ on your timetable and advertise this class as a ‘ mix’, we think your regulars will be up for it!
How will members benefit from the GRIT™ Mix?
Members wishing to reap the benefits of HIIT and step up their game need to be constantly challenged. An awesome way to do this and see results is to add the GRIT™ Mix to your members training program. Push their bodies out of their comfort zones and test their abilities not just in one stream, but in all three. They thought just one GRIT™ was tough? Wait until they tackle this!
