A lean and toned body is not hard to achieve, if you join the newly launched Les Mills GRIT™ Strength group exercise class at True Fitness.
Designed to improve strength and build lean muscle fast, the Les Mills GRIT™ Strength class combines the best of HIIT (also known as high-intensity interval training) with powerful music and inspiring coaches to deliver a heartracing workout in half an hour.
Using the barbell, weight plate and body weight to do challenging full-body exercises, your major muscle groups will be pushed to their limits. The result: Your metabolism hits a new high, causing you to burn more calories – and fat – after the workout.
Though demanding, Les Mills GRIT™ Strength will be over before you know it. Each session takes only 30 minutes, about half the time that most group classes last. No excuses for time-starved workaholics!
The effectiveness of this class has been proven, according to recent research by Dr Jinger Gottschall, an associate professor of kinesiology at Pennsylvania State University in the US.
In the study, two groups of 42 fit adults underwent five hours of professionally designed exercises a week. One group substituted one hour of cardio exercise for two 30-minute Les Mills GRIT™ Strength workouts. After six weeks, participants in both groups recorded increases in cardiovascular fitness and strength, as well as decreases in triglycerides, body fat and waist circumference. However, the group that did the Les Mills GRIT™ Strength workouts enjoyed the benefits at more than twice the rate across all measures.
Les Mills GRIT™ Strength is based on the concept of HIIT, which mixes short bursts of high-intensity exercises with short recovery periods. The scientifically proven benefits include improved fitness, muscle tone and fat burn for hours after the workout.
Les Mills GRIT™ Strength is available at True Fitness Chevron House (tel: 6438-3000) and True Fitness Suntec City (tel: 6820-9000) from October 2016.
