Hey hey friends! I’m still on a high from our Cardio & Cocktails party last Saturday! Over 300 people came to shake it with us at the W Dallas hotel. It was an absolute blast and I want to give a HUGE thanks to our partner, Fabletics for providing awesome swag and adorable outfits! CLICK HERE to checkout the photo album on Facebook!
The fun doesn’t stop there, next up is the MAIN EVENT, our “Sunday Funday” Launch Party for the Grand Opening of the GRIT Fitness Flagship studio – woo hoo! The launch party on Sunday, June 5 will include cocktails, light bites, and workout gear offerings to shop by top fitness brands! The GRIT Fitness flagship is located at 1729 Irving Boulevard Suite 101 Dallas, Texas 75227.
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

Hey Hey friends! I hope you’re excited for the weekend…especially if you live in Dallas! My studio is partnering with the Westin Galleria Dallas to host the 3rd Summer Sweat Series event. This time we are offering a free Turbo Kick class at 2pm this Sunday! After class you can enjoy complimentary passed bites, Sangria and pool access. It’s going to be a blast!
Since the first 2 Summer Sweat Series events were so successful, Fox 4 News asked us to come on their morning show, Good Day, and demo some of the Turbo Kick moves that we’ll be rocking on Sunday. In case you can’t tell, I LOVE being on camera! My childhood dream was to have my own talk show….sigh….some day. haha. Check out the video segment below! We had a ball kicking, punching and jamming on camera.
In the spirit of kickboxing, I highly recommend my at home “DIY Cardio Kickboxing Routine” for your workout of the day. Set aside 30 minutes, blast some crunk music and break a sweat. You won’t regret it.
Wishing you a wonderful day of sweat and smiles. xoxo, Brit
Hey guys – happy Tuesday! So I’m back in Dallas and back to work renovating and preparing for the grand opening of my very 1st fitness studio! I can’t believe this is all happening. It’s SO MUCH more work than I anticipated but I’m loving every minute of it.
My studio, Dallas GRIT Fitness, is located in East Dallas at 3821 Ross Avenue. I’m SO excited to bring the very 1st one-stop-shop for a variety of the most energetic group fitness & yoga classes! No more having to drop in to 5 different studios to attend your favorite workouts.
Right now, I’m in the thick of of renovations and managing contractors. We started off by tearing down 6 walls in what use to be a chiropractor’s office. Talk about manual labor. I had a little bit of a hiccup last week when the City of Dallas officials stopped by and said I needed an additional permit for the demolition work that was done – YIKES! We had to stop working for a couple of days until we secured the permit – UGH! Fortunately, everything is squared away now and we are back in business!
Once we got all of the walls knocked down and cleaned out, we did a mini celebration – YAY! Then the painters came in and worked their magic. I decided to go with gray walls and white crown molding. What do you think? My biz partner, Tuner, will run Dallas Fit Body Bootcamp in the suite next door. We’re excited to offer cross-studio memberships and joint workouts 🙂
Now that painting is done, the flooring guys will install beautiful maple wood floors this week.
Last but not least, we will wrap up renovations with mirrors, wall art and sound/lighting installations. Then we are good to go! I’m having an orientation for all of my rockstar instructors in early December and “soft opening” in late December 2014. I’ll be sure to keep you updated on the progress.
