GRITSPOT

IF SWEATING OUTSIDE WITH MATES IS YOUR JAM THEN GRITSPOT COULD BE FOR YOU. WITH SEVERAL LOCATIONS ACROSS THE CITY ITS EASY TO GET YOUR FITNESS HIT WHENEVER YOU NEED IT... 

WHERE: Various locations in Mitte, Friedrichshain, Kreuzberg, Prenzlauer Berg and Schonberg.

THE DEAL: Outdoor circuit-based work-outs, combining high intensity and strength conditioning moves with heart-rate monitoring, so you can track your progress throughout.  

THE WORK-OUT: Every work-out is different and lasts 45 minutes. The work-out we tried was very circuit based that you completed with a partner. A few minutes of extra high intensity 'challenges' were thrown in for good measure. 

THE PRICE: First-timers can sign up for a free two week trial, which seems pretty generous to us. However, to become a full-time member it costs €90 for unlimited sessions. €60 will get you eight sessions a month and €36 just four per month. This seems pretty pricey to us when a medium Urban Sports Club membership will get you unlimited classes across 488 different places for €59 (plus Gritspot is on Urban Sports Club!).
