Happy Monday Friends! I hope you had a lovely weekend! Did any of you see the blood moon eclipse last night? I totally missed it, BUT I enjoyed the most beautiful full moon on my way to work at 6am this morning.
I had a wonderful weekend myself, albeit a very busy one. One major highlight was our SHAKE. SWEAT. SCULPT free, community mash-up workout that we hosted for Lorna Jane’s Active Nation Day. It was an absolute blast, the weather in Dallas was perfect and we had an AMAZING turnout (as you can see below). Thanks so much to all members of the GRIT Fitness family and the Dallas community who came to WERK it out with us!
While Summer is winding down and the weather will keep us from offering as many free outdoor community classes, I’m still gearing up for one strong fall – and I want you to be a part of it. Whether you’re heading back to school, cranking things up at work or looking for a way to take some time to focus on you, my dream team of instructors and I at GRIT Fitness are here to help. One sweaty GRIT class is all it takes to find joy, feel great and be your best self.
To help kickstart your GRIT routine, we’d love to invite you to take our #FallN2Fitness Challenge. This challenge is open EVERYONE – you don’t have to be a member to participate. To complete the challenge, you have knock out 14 classes in 4 weeks, between October 4-31st.
It’s super fun, affordable, energetic way to get in shape and earn some swag! Yup..that’s right, not only do you get enjoy music-blasting, super fun sweat sessions, BUT if you successfully complete the challenge you also receive the GRIT Tank Top of your choice. Choose from any of the styles below
NOTE: At GRIT we do NOT sell our apparel, it can only be earned. That means the only way to score our swag is to show your GRIT 🙂
We can’t wait to Fall N2 Fitness with 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

Happy Monday Y’all! I hope you enjoyed a nice long post-Christmas weekend. I totally feel the vibes of everyone getting ready for 2015. This morning I subbed a 5:45 spin class at BEYOND Pedaling and the energy was through the roof. I love it when my class comes the the studio ready to work!
I’m spending the rest of the my day at my own fitness studio, GRIT Fitness. It’s so surreal to actually have my “own fitness studio.” A dream come true! Now we are really in the home stretch – only 3 weeks until our grand opening. Yay!
I auditioned and hired 1 more Power Flow instructor this morning which means GRIT Fitness will open with a fun, fierce team of 11 fabulous instructors (including me)!
Here’s a quick run down of the recent progress that me and my family made over the Christmas break…
Last but not least, I’m spending most of my time this week preparing for our Launch Party and grand opening festivities. If you live in Dallas, I really hope you can join us. The party is on Saturday, Jan. 17th from 1-4pm. Our friends from Lorna Jane will be in the house with some goodies! I’ll be sure to do my part and provide the mimosas and a jammin’ playlist 🙂 After the party, we are offering a free week of classes to the Dallas Community. This is your chance to to check out our rockstar team of instructors, break a sweat a bust a move. Visit our Mind Body site to reserve your spot in a class!
Well, that’s all for now. I’ll bring you some “detox” ideas later this week to get your New Year started off right. Have a wonderful week. xoxo, Brit

Hey guys! I hope your week is off to a good start. I was feeling pretty chipper this morning, but then the reality of the MASSIVE AMOUNT of work I have to do to get my studio set up hit me like a ton of bricks – AHH! From writing the press release, conducting instructor orientation, planning the grand opening party and finishing renovations, I don’t expect to sleep much in the next month. The frustrating part is that so much of what needs to be done I can’t do by myself. Having to rely on others is definitely giving me a life lesson in humility. Alas, lots of progress is being made so I’ll rejoice in that regard. We have come such a long way! Remember when we started with the demolition work?
The most recent accomplishment is mirror installation! Alpha Glass company installed the studio mirrors last Thursday! They really open up the space and make it feel like real studio. I think this is the most excited I’ve been so far.
Tomorrow the electricians will come and install additional power outlets, lighting and the sound system. I’m really excited about the lights because they respond to the bass in the music 🙂 I went to Guitar Center and totally geeked out from all of the lighting options (see below). Finally, I decided to buy the Ultrabar colored lights. Can’t wait to have these installed tomorrow!
After Thanksgiving the real fun begins – decorating! While decorating seems simple, it also requires professional help – UGH! Is there any particular fitness studio decor that you like? If so, post a comment and let me know!
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.
