    What is GRIT™ and the Science Behind it? 
    GRIT™ is high-intensity interval training (HIIT). Short, intense bursts of effort followed by periods of recovery. The basic recipe? Go as hard as you can for a short period of time, rest, and then repeat. It’s the intervals that allow you to keep pushing into your max effort training zone. 

    Studies have shown that HIIT training, when coupled with resistance training, can decrease waist circumference and internal abdominal fat while accelerating changes in body composition, strength, and cardiovascular fitness.

    There’s no disputing it. It’s scientifically proven that HIIT cardio training drives you to burn calories for hours after the workout, increase aerobic fitness, unleash fast-twitch muscle fibers and grow lean muscle tissue, burning fat. But don’t take our word for it.
