GRIT: a positive, non-cognitive trait, based on an individual's passion for a particular long-term goal coupled with a powerful motivation to achieve it. This perseverance of effort promotes the overcoming of obstacles or challenges that lie within a gritty individual's path to accomplishment and serves as a driving force in achievement realization. This adamant refusal to accept defeat, this is GRIT.

GritCycle is a boutique indoor cycling studio located in the heart of Costa Mesa, California. We specialize in high-intensity, full-body cycling classes. During each 45-minute class, clients follow choreography set to music, taking them out of their fitness comfort zones and connecting them to the incredible community of GritCycle riders.

We pride ourselves on employing talented, philanthropic and like-minded instructors who truly inspire our community both in the Saddle Room and out. With a focus on customer service and creating the best indoor cycling environment in Orange County, we motivate each and every client to find their inner GRIT!
