Y Fit - Les Mills Class Highlight: GRIT™

09 Apr 2020 - Y Fit


LES MILLS GRIT offers 3 versions of this program; Strength, Plyo and Cardio. These are 30-minute high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts, designed to improve strength, improve cardio vascular fitness, build lean muscle and maximise calorie burn.

For our participants with a base level of fitness, those that are pressed for time and those looking for something similar to our small group training classes in club, then this program is for you.

Some classes require weights so for those fortunate enough to have some at home, great! If not, there are plenty of household items you can substitute as a weight plate or dumbbell for the Strength and Plyo classes.

At the start of each workout video it will tell you what you need, so be sure to browse the different releases to find one that matches you best and don’t worry if it seems a little hard at first. Despite what's going on in the workout on the screen, it’s you vs you, so as long as you give it your best and do as much as you can, you have done more than enough!

Watch this clip to find out more about the different GRIT options available.
