Part 1: Do You Have GRIT? Gratitude, Resilience, Intention & Toughness
Pluck. Moxy. Determination in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. “Grit” is a term we hear from sports announcers and cross fit instructors in reference to athletic achievements and physical feats that boggle the mind. However, compelling emerging exercise science points to the power of perception over physical ability. In other words, all those burpees do not mean anything unless your “head is right”.
