I like the part where before you actually start with the training everyone needs to start with a assessment regardless of your training level. This assessment involves some basic movement to see if you have any mobility issue so to prevent any possible chances of you getting injured during the training and of cause your level of fitness to determine how hard you have to go during the workout!! So we did a few squats, push up, lunges and pull up to test our mobility and level of fitness.

After the assessment, workout begin with a series of warm up movement. Many places or personal trainer actually neglect the warm up part, which is very important in my opinion. A proper warm up gets your muscle ready and prepared for the workout.

Grit only accepts 4 person in a class at one go, so Coach Gene can focus on you and ensure that you are performing the exercise correctly. So for a class of 4, we split up in 2 group. Workout consist of 3 sets of superset exercise. First is a ball overhead hold 30sec superset with dumbbell thruster, next up deadlift superset with wall run and lastly Trx Row superset explosive push up with a 5 second on the negative. We did 4 rounds of each superset.

We ended our workout with a couple of cool down stretches, workout time is around 45min. Workout intensity depends on how hard individual pushes during the workout, if you feel stronger that day, push a little harder.
