Dallas GRIT Fitness Flagship | Construction Progress

ALMOST MOVE IN TIME

Hey hey friends!  I’m SO THRILLED to share a construction progress update today because SO MUCH has been accomplished in so little time.

So, this week all of the former walls in the facility were demolished leaving this huge open space…

and by the end of the week, the new wall frames and sheet rock were constructed –  YAY!

This is a major milestone because the new GRIT FITNESS flagship studio will have 2 studios under 1 roof: 1 group fitness studio + 1 indoor cycling studio. (It’s also just super cool to actually see the future floor plan in real life – not just on construction drawings).

I’m big believer that variety is the spice of life and the key to an effective fitness regimen, so I’m super keen on providing continuous variety to my clients AKA the #GRITFAM.  Offering cycling classes in additional to our 7 original group fitness classes is a phenomenal sweaty combo!

Furthermore, we made more great progress on the locker room.  Last week the locker room looked like this (NO plumbing)…

This week the trenching for plumbing got underway and we are on track to install showers!

We still have lots of work to do (e.g. flooring, lighting, sound, decor) but the BIG construction efforts are well underway and almost done.  Summer will be here before we know it and I can’t wait to offer more of our fun, fierce fabulous fitness classes to the Dallas community.

It’s not too late to back our campaign and help make this vision come to life.  We can’t do it without you!  Thank you so much for the contributions, kind emails and words of encouragement so far.  You are loved and appreciated.  #thebestisyettocome

Fitness Studio Review: The Barre Code Dallas, TX

DSCN0551

From left to right, my friends Ashley, Julie (instructor), me and Andria after our Brawl workout.  I was happy to rock my Fire Cracker capris from Lorna Jane!

Hey friends – happy workout Wednesday!  I hope your week is going well.  I’m working away at my new studio, Dallas Grit Fitness.  We are in full swing decorating and getting ready to welcome our fierce, fabulous instructors for orientation in 2 weeks.  I’m excited and honored to have the most energetic dancers, trainers and yoga instructors join my team!

In honor of workout Wednesday, I wanted to share some insights from my recent visit to The Barre Code Dallas, Design District.  Turns out The Barre Code Dallas Master Trainer, Julie, was actually the Group X Manager of 24 Hour Fitness who auditioned me for my very first fitness instructor position!  When I walked into the class and saw that she was teaching, I totally freaked out.  Such a small world!

While The Barre Code offers several barre formats my friends and I decided to try out the “Brawl” class because it seemed the most intense.  “Brawl, which has been recognized by SELF magazine as one of the best workouts in the country, is an intense class that combines cardio kickboxing sequences with strengthening work for the thighs and glutes.”  As a Turbo Kick fanatic, of course this is right yup my alley!

Here’s a quick run down of my experience…

  • The Class – Brawl is a 50 minutes, high intensity cardio kickboxing class.  We did the whole class in socks – no sneakers!  Fortunately the floors are a soft rubber that you can bounce on.  About half way through the class, we got down on the ground and did 10 minutes of core, thighs and booty toning exercises.  Then we ended class with one final cardio push and a cool down.
  • The Instructor – So I may be biased because I know Julie and personally like her style, but she was awesome!  I always appreciate fitness instructors who actually do the workout with the class and practice what they teach.  Julie rocked it out!
  • Music – We kicked, punched and jumped around to a mash-up of Top 40 music.  It was remixed into a continuous flow that synced well with the moves.  The sound system was great – I could feel the beat!
  • Who was there – Barre Code is a women’s only gym.  Most of the ladies in our class were in their 20’s and 30’s and all dressed in super cute activewear.
  • Loved – The high energy of the class.  We never stopped moving!
  • Hated – I didn’t bring a towel and had to creatively wipe my sweat on my clothes.
  • Final Verdict – After class I was drenched in sweat, my thighs were on fire and I had a smile on my face – the 3 signs of an effective workout!  I highly recommend.

Afterwards we were sweaty and tired so we treated ourselves to a yummy dinner at Ascension
