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.

Not even an “I’m sorry you weren’t successful in this writer position role.” I’m not complaining, I am just looking at the intricacies of how hard it is to become a freelance fashion writer in todays world. it is so easy for people of businesses to take your work and never hear from them again. Never fret though, this is a nice article for my own blog. Just thought I would put it out there as an interesting point.

The pyjama trend is making mornings a little bit easier. For those that love comfort and literally staying in your pyjamas all day long, you’ll be happy to hear that the PJ trend isn’t going anywhere and is still gracing our runways in all different styles and forms.

However, it’s important to know that the trend requires a little more effort than simply throwing on your old worn in flannel types. You are taking the PJ look outside the bedroom so even though this look is supposed to say “no fuss”, just make sure it’s a stylish “no fuss.” 

From high fashion to celebrities to fast fashion, everyone is getting on board this trend that gives “put together laziness” the thumbs up. So how does one put together this look? It should have a relaxed yet sensual aesthetic.
