About Grit Gym
Grit Gym is a boutique fitness studio located in Iowa City, IA. Since opening in 2010, Grit has grown from a single strength coach to a small staff. Grit Gym has a reputation for rebelling against the status quo with an expertise in exercise prescription for strength via movement quality that helps people get back in shape to live the life they want, even after difficult injuries and long hiatuses from exercise. Grit provides progressive training, mindset, recovery and nutrition protocols in a delivery system of subversive humor and energy that is fun yet focused, introverted yet welcoming, and direct yet positive. More than anything we care on a level that is downright weird. We read tons of books, take perspectives far outside the realm of normal and live on the edge of unreasonable personal growth daily. We are experts in exercise that put each individual's sense of belonging at the top of necessities for success. Providing a community that is joyful yet relentless in its pursuit of progress. A place where the strength of the individual is as important as the tribe and the strength of the tribe is as important as the individual.
