GRIT Fitness Flagship Video Tour & Update

FLAGSHIP UPDATE

Hey Friends!  I hope you had an awesome weekend are looking forward to an even more awesome week ahead. We are enjoying AMAZING weather in Dallas – I’m talking patio chillin’ with no sweater on – HEY!

I have so much exciting news to share with you!  First, we have raised over 20% of our goal for the new GRIT Flagship on @indiegogo. Thank you to everyone who has helped so far, we luv you! Click the link at the bottom of this post check out the campaign and help us make the Flagship the best it can be!

Second, I shot a little video tour of the new FLAGSHIP so you can see what’s in store.  7 Original GRIT Fitness classes + GRIT Revolution (our new indoor cycling format) ALL under 1 roof!  This means more BANG FOR YOUR BUCK for the #GRITFAM.  Take the tour and get excited!

Last but not least, our construction plans were approved by the City of Dallas last Friday – YAY!  This is such a big deal, because often this step in the process can take WEEKS! On Monday morning I have a meeting with our design team to pick out the final materials and confirm the final plans so we can start construction ASAP!  Wish me luck!  I’ve never done anything like this before so I’m pumped up but also feeling a little anxiety because I want to create the BEST fitness environment for the #GRITFAM.

I’ll post continuous updates here on the blog so you can closely track our build out and ramp up in the coming weeks.  Thanks for all of the love, kind emails and contributions to our campaign.  I APPRECIATE YOU!  xoxo, Brit

GRIT Fitness Featured in Dallas Morning News

Hey Hey Happy Monday!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Mine was full of b-day celebrations – 4 of my closest friends have birthdays this week which means my calendar was full of pool time and partying – yippee!  (Shout out to Jen Kelm, Melissa Bass, Cerise Manns and Leslie Jerome – I LOVE YOU ALL)  As icing on the cake my fitness studio, GRIT Fitness, was featured in the Dallas Morning News.  We are moving on up!  Here’s a quick run down of my weekend shenanigans…

On Friday morning, I woke up bright and early to take Maria’s Flexin’ Flow class.  I always encourage the instructors at my studio to take each others’ classes as it helps us grow as teachers and makes our team feel cohesive and supported.  Me and Annabel (who teaches Dance Club Cardio and Turbo Kick) thoroughly enjoyed Maria’s Friday morning class and all 3 of us posed for a little post workout photo 🙂

On Friday night, I celebrated the b-day of my childhood best friend, Leslie.  She lives in Memphis  right now with her husband BUT they are moving back to Texas next month.  I’m so excited!  If you recall, I was a bridesmaid in Leslie’s beautiful Southern Charm wedding a few months ago.  She and I had a blast at dinner and drinks on Friday night.

On Saturday morning I taught my usual Flexin’ Flow class at the W Dallas Hotel on the 16th floor wet deck.  It was super hot and sweaty but tons of fun.  We had a huge crowd on Saturday, over 90 people.  Afterwards of a few of my friends from the Junior League stayed on the wet deck and we enjoyed post-workout mimosas at the pool bar.  Check out this awesome review from D Town Sweat from Saturday’s class.

Sunday morning started with a chill trip to Starbucks where I grabbed the Sunday paper to check out our feature.  I was so pumped to see that our article made the front page of the Health section! CLICK HERE to read the full article by Special Contributor Kimber Westphall (Twitter @fit_trip_Kimber).  I’m so grateful that Kimber chose to reach out to me and put the spotlight on my new little business.  She and I also made a cool video together which you can view below…

The b-day festivities continued on Sunday afternoon with Melissa’s birthday pool party.  Melissa and I met last summer when she attended my Flexin Flow class at the W hotel.  Overtime we became friends and now she teaches Flexin’ Flow at GRIT fitness.  It’s great to see her grow into an amazing yoga and fitness instructor.  We spent the whole day chillin’ outside, jammin’ to good music and drinking delicious cocktails.  It felt good to truly refrain from working all day and just enjoy some fun in the sun!

Today I’m back to the grind.  I’m writing this blog post from my favorite coffee shop, MudSmith, as I enjoy an egg/avacado sandwich and prepare for my classes this week.  This weekend was awesome and I’m looking forward to an even more amazing week ahead.  I wish you the same.  xoxo, Brit

Spring Shape Up Circuit: Running & Strength Interval Workout

Hello friends!  Spring has officially sprung here in Dallas, TX.  We enjoyed a gorgeous weekend of sunshine and 75 degree weather.  Some of my friends even enjoyed time by the pool.  I’m so glad that Winter is over and cannot wait to spend more time outside, especially partaking in outdoor workouts.  This week I plan to hit up the Katy Trail and knock out this running and strength training circuit.  I made the perfect 40 minute playlist to energize my sweat session – you should too!
