Since its inception, Brit has has grown GRIT Fitness to three Dallas area locations and a virtual studio that serves women worldwide. GRIT has been named “Best Fitness Program” by D Magazine, “Best Gym” by Dallas Observer and “Best New Fitness Studio” by Dallasites 101.
Brit advocates that learning to endure though physical challenges teaches us to persevere through greater life challenges. "We can't always control life's circumstances but we can control how we respond."
At GRIT, Brit has designed and curated a set of original, music-driven group fitness classes that provide an intense workout and a fun experience. She's also hand-selected an inspiring team of instructors who each demonstrate the core values of passion, fun, positive energy and perseverance.
