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
Happy 2016 my friends! I hope you rang in the new year with those you love. I enjoyed New Year’s day by teaching SOLD OUT back-to-back classes at my studio at “Brit’s 2016 Sweaty Surprise” class. Essentially, I picked all of my favorite songs from 2015 and choreographed a mash-up workout of kickboxing, body sculpting and dance exercises. It was a one hour of good old sweaty fun.
To keep the momentum going, I’m hosting a #NEWYEARBESTYOU challenge for our GRIT family. If you don’t live in Dallas, you can still participate! All you have to do is write down one personal goal of how you will be your best self this year and email it to [email protected]. Then you must complete 15 workouts that are each at least 30 minutes long before the end of January. Share your progress by posting 15 post-workout pics to Instagram and use the hashtag #newyearbestyou. Everyone who completes the challenge will earn our newest “I’m Allergic to Basic Workouts Tank Top” #dontbebasic. Let’s do this thang!
If you live in Dallas, come join the challenge in person! We are offering a killer New Year deal for unlimited classes and official membership to the GRIT Family. For only $105 per month you can join the party, take the challenge and hang out with me (which I hope you want to do)! Here’s the link to sign up: REGISTER NOW
Alright gang, let’s make 2016 the best year of our lives and let’s do it as a team! Here’s to a happy, healthy New Year! xoxo, Brit
Hey Gang – Happy Monday! I just wrapped up my first 4 weeks of teaching PiYo on the wetdeck at the W-Dallas Hotel. We have gotten off to an amazing start and have generated a huge amount of Pilates/Yoga fusion energy in Dallas. If you happen to live in Dallas or just be in town for the weekend, I really hope you stop by and sweat with me 🙂 Last week, D Magazine wrote a really cool review of the class. Click here to read the full story.
Also, Chalene Johnson, the creator of PiYo, just launched a brand new home fitness PiYo program with Beachbody. In case you don’t know, Beachbody also created Insanity and P90X – 2 really great home fitness programs. I’ve always been a fan of Chalene Johnson because she created TurboKick (and y’all know I love me some Turbo).
Anyway, I’m super excited and grateful for a successful PiYo class so far this Summer. Here are some photos from our class last Saturday. There’s nothing I love more than connecting with blog readers and fitness fanatics in our community, so please do join us Saturday morning and say “hi” – I’d love to meet you.
