Have You Tried Virtual Grit Yet? – Bolton Arena Gym

At the start of 2020, we introduced virtual Les Mills Grit into our fitness timetable. Over the last month, we’ve received extremely positive feedback from new members to frequent class users. As such, we’ve now trebled the number of Les Mills Grit classes across our weekly fitness timetable.

What is Les Mills Grit? 

Grit is a 30-minute high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workout, designed to improve strength, cardiovascular fitness and build lean muscle. This workout uses barbell, weight plate and bodyweight exercises to blast all major muscle groups. Les Mills Grit takes cutting-edge HIIT and combines it with powerful music and inspirational coaches who will be down on the floor with you, motivating you to go harder to get fit, fast.

What have our gym members said?

”GRIT is the ideal way to get maximum results in minimal time which is perfect for me or anyone else trying to schedule their fitness regime around an already hectic daily schedule. GRIT pushes me to my limits constantly and I never walk out of a class feeling I haven’t worked to my maximum and got the most out of my workout. We all know cardio training can become mundane for both our body and mind and GRIT shakes this up completely. It makes your body train in a completely new way and I have seen my body respond to this really well both in increased fitness levels and the shape my body has taken.  The periods of work are short which allow you put maximum effort in through most of the class and personally, knowing I can work at maximum for 30 seconds then recover allows me to give much more to my workout than a steady moderate pace for 30 minutes.

These classes are high intensity and will push anyone’s limits regardless of their current fitness levels but they can be taken at your own pace and you will soon notice improvements in your performance with each class you do.

Its new to the Arena, it’s a bit different from everything else we offer and it is definitely worth a try!”

Helen, frequent class user.

”I would recommend Les Mills Grit to anyone. The combination of weights and cardio makes the workout fun but with a high intensity. For those that have done classes before, i would say it’s a mixture of Body Pump and Body Attack. It’s challenging at the start, which pushes you on, but once i got to round 3, and had adapted the class i was flying. I would urge everyone to give it a go”

Andrea, long term gym member. 

“I tried Grit for the first time and wow – I’ve never done anything like it! High intensity and fast paced, but can still be good for beginners like me. Will definitely give it another go!”

Jenny, new member. 

”Tried Grit for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed the class, so much so, I’ve done the class twice a week since! Can’t wait for the class to be on the timetable more.”

Louise, long term gym member. 

Grit joins our existing Les Mills virtual classes, BodyPump, BodyBalance, CXWorx, RPM and Sprint. The introduction of virtual classes enables us to maximise off peak studio usage and offer choice to new and existing members, vital for those people who struggle to fit exercise around their working day.
