New, 30-minute high-intensity workouts proven to get results

Les Mills’ new high-intensity interval training program delivers superior results in just 30 minutes

Release date: 12 November, 2013

For anyone ready to work hard and earn great results, LES MILLS GRIT™ Series is the answer.

High-intensity interval training is scientifically proven to improve fitness faster than conventional training methods1 – and now LES MILLS GRIT provides those results with the inspiration of a certified coach, a team setting and great music.

LES MILLS GRIT workouts are demanding, but they’re over quickly. Each 30-minute session mixes short bursts of high intensity with recovery periods. That’s the best way to increase fitness, tone muscle and lose fat.

Three unique 30-minute workouts are being rolled out around the world:

  • LES MILLS GRIT Strength blasts all major muscle groups using barbells, plates and the bench. Your metabolism goes into overdrive to burn fat for hours after the workout.
  • LES MILLS GRIT Plyo creates a lean, powerful, athletic body using the principles of plyometrics (power agility training). You’ll increase your speed, strength and endurance by transforming up to 40% more muscle fibre.
  • LES MILLS GRIT Cardio burns fat and rapidly improves your athletic capability. No equipment is needed for this explosive, high-impact body-weight routine.

LES MILLS GRIT is the ideal way to get a premium, personal training-style workout without the expensive price tag. It also goes hand-in-hand with existing training. It can be swapped into your current workout regime instead of traditional cardio and it will intensify the results you’re already achieving from any group fitness programs.

And these aren’t empty claims; recent research by Dr. Jinger Gottschall at Pennsylvania State University proves that LES MILLS GRIT gets real results.

Over six weeks, two groups of 42 fit adult exercisers engaged in five hours of quality, professionally-designed exercise per week. The point of difference was that one group substituted one hour of cardio for two 30-minute LES MILLS GRIT™ workouts. After six weeks, increases in cardiovascular fitness and strength and decreases in triglycerides, body fat and waist circumference were recorded by all. But those who did the LES MILLS GRIT™ workouts enjoyed the benefits at more than twice the rate across all measures.
