Are you psycho for GRIT?

It’s not even Halloween yet, and things/people/grittybabes/instructors are getting a bit PSYCHO around here. We thought we’d extend the hoopla out to you friends! Starting October 3rd, the 1st annual GRITPSYCHO contest will commence. For four weeks we challenge you to take as many of the designated classes as you can. The winner snags a 5-class series. This is…

Grit Gets PREGNANT

It’s baby season at Grit Cycle and we couldn’t be more tickled…pink. {wink wink..hint, hint.} Yes, must be that purified, filtered water we’re serving, because Grit Cycle is knocked up.—at least a few of the instructors are, and we can’t keep our sweaty hands off their precious bellies! Our own Chelsea Gregory, Chanel Nelson, and…

sunblock queens

As the calendar officially winds summer’s sunny, blue-skied visit down, you’ll find many of us chasing after every last, golden, glow-making UV ray, or at least maxing out our AMEX cards at Bronzed Bunny–all in the hopes of maintaining that trademark California tan. Yet, with 1 in 3 people diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime, thankfully the days of…

back to school margarita

Did you hear it? We did. The clink-clanking of parents across the country “cheers’ing” each other in victory on another school year commenced. We thought this hallowed event deserved its own cocktail so we turned to Grit Cycle’s resident mixologist, never-miss-a-class-or-a-chance to figure 8, and party planner to the stars {Upon Request Events} Debbie Springer. Debbie…

Welcome to the “OUTPOST”

Welcome to “The Outpost”–GRIT Cycle’s very own blog! We’re hoping to take our conversations beyond the deck; delving deeper into subjects that matter to you {nutrition, fitness, community, charity, etc.} The 45 minutes we get with you in the saddle room, although we are grateful for it, just never seems like enough time with our…

September Karma | The Undefeated Organization

It’s on our front door, it’s our call sign, it’s our name: GRIT-a determination to keep one’s resolve, no matter what the circumstance. We, at Grit, have an affinity for the underdog, we champion those who refuse to give in, we embrace the warrior whose vocabulary lacks the word “surrender”. It is this open door policy…

Lauren Rasky | September Instructor of the Month

The calendar may read ‘summer is ending,’ but we’re still keeping things super sizzly in the saddle room. All September long, our own Lauren Rasky, is spicing up the spin bike as our “Instructor of the Month.” Lauren recently disco danced her cute self over to the Outpost, and let us get to know her a little more….

August Instructor of the Month: Maddy Post

August days are getting hot and playful; what better way to honor this month of blazing rays and beach blanket bingo, than having the ultimate beach girl, Maddy Post, as our August Instructor of the Month. One of our newer instructors, Maddy teaches Monday and Friday at 7am. She recently swung by the Outpost to let us…

August Karma Ride:

Gritties! We’re deep in the belly of summer silly; tan lines have taken {semi} permanent residence and our marco polo game is gold medal-level. Life is swell. So let’s not forget to sprinkle some of that sunny bounty back into the community. For the month of August, Grit Cycle is donating to the Hoag Hospital Foundation 552 Club,…

What’s in your BAG: Dani Wellbrock-Gallinger

A recurring post we hope to bring to you is our “What’s in your bag” series; where we delve into the nooks, crannies, sometimes KIND bar crumb’ed corners of our staff’s gym bags. What better way to begin than with our instructor of the month for June, miss Dani! Dani cordially allowed us a glimpse…

Instructor of the month for June: Dani

Christmas is coming a little early gritties! For the month of June we give you, the one and only, the often imitated, but never duplicated, the mother of all of us baby {grit} dragons, Dani Wellbrock-Gallinger aka “boss babe” as our instructor of the month. Give us a the nitty gritty on you I am…

July Instructor of the month: Jessica Ginsburg

July is coming in hot and sizzling; just like our instructor of the month: Jessica Ginsberg aka “GI JESS”. Known for her uber-challenging rides, Jess draws the crowds in with her infectious energy {ie twerking} and from-the-heart support. When one leaves Jess’ class, they leave changed for the better, feeling like they can walk on…
