Pilates By Lisa… the master of online pilates

Since landing in USA a month or so ago for a quick holiday to visit my boyfriend, I have been using Pilates By Lisa. I’ve had a lot of stays at my boyfriend’s house in suburban New Jersey and one of the first things I realised I’d have to do (to continue with some sort of sanity) is start at home work outs.

Is this the most effective HIIT workout? LES MILLS GRIT

Les Mills GRIT. To do this day, it is still the hardest, best and most effective workout I’ve ever done. And I have done a lot. I have walked high and low around Manhattan, ClassPass membership in hand, trying out classes galore. Yet with every class that I went to, I only missed GRIT even more.

Les Mills Grit is broken up into three groups- GRIT Strength, GRIT Cardio and GRIT Plyo. Each one has their own unique twist and each is just as hard.

Strength focuses on controlled movement and using power to push through heavy weighted high interval tracks. Cardio focuses on being fast and having strong agility, it’s always the one that amps up the most sweat. And Plyo is all about the jumping, jumping high, to the side, backwards and in front, some jumps with weights and some just body weight. It’s only half an hour, but GRIT truely is my fave half hour of the week.

Hold your applause til the end of the performance.
