East Dallas is about to get a little GRITtier

Hey! Your New Years resolution is to lose weight and get in better shape? Mine too! What a coincidence... Lucky for all of us Brittani Rettig is launching the new year by opening GRIT fitness studio in East Dallas where she plans to whip us all into shape. Her motto is "No Grit, No Pearl" so get ready to get gritty. And by that, I mean get your ass kicked - I mean, look at the biceps on this gal (see photo below)! Inspired through years of teaching a variety of fitness formats, Rettig has constructed a set of energetic, music-driven classes at the GRIT Fitness studio. Need an endorsement? D Magazine raved about her popular Pilates Yoga (PiYo) Class at the W Dallas Hotel. With the launch of GRIT Fitness, Dallas residents have the ability to take Kickboxing, Dance Cardio, Hip Hop, Body Sculpt and upbeat Power Vinyasa Flow classes that each provide an intense workout and a motivating playlist.

Rettig advocates that, “hard work CAN be enjoyable with the right music and a rock-star instructor. My mission is to use fitness to help people develop the mental grit needed to live their best lives. We can't always control life's circumstances, but we can control how we respond. Learning to endure though physical challenges teaches us to persevere through greater life challenges.”

Rettig will personally teach several classes per week and has also hand-selected an inspiring team of instructors including dancers from professional sports teams and premier personal trainers.

You can meet the GRIT Fitness team at their launch party or participate in a free class during grand opening week.
