Meet Lindsay

Founder/Owner

Lindsay started her journey with a pair of dumbbells and stopwatch, determined to help a small group of women get fit, and 15 years later, she has helped thousands across the country lose weight, get fit, and improve their overall lifestyle. Lindsay has traveled across the country as a public speaker to inspire others to become better versions of themselves. Her work was featured in magazines such as YoU Mag and Focus On Fabulous, which inspired women to step out of their comfort zone, and focus on daily positive routines to improve their self image. Fast forward a few years, she and her family moved to Jasper, GA to pursue their dream of running their own gym business and running a farm. After years of being in the fitness industry, coaching at big box gyms, and running online training, Lindsay and her husband, Justin, knew there had to be a better way to help many more people. That was when Grit Life Fitness was founded. Grit stands for hustle, passion and perseverance. After months in the making, they came up with a 3 pillar philosophy they knew that was needed to help their clients succeed: Fitness, Nutrition, and Accountability. The programs are high energy fitness and fat loss workouts that offer structured training in a comfortable setting. No judgement, just pure GRIT and GRIND. We dare you to try us, because when you hang out with us for too long, we will brainwash you into believing in yourself and knowing you can do anything :)

Meet Terrie
Grit Life Coach

I'm a hardcore bodybuilder and seriously addicted to the iron, LOL! But I love all areas of being fit and healthy. I'm a lover of the outdoors, hiking (minus the bugs), and I LOVE to serve people. I love helping them elevate in all areas of their life whether it be mental, physical, or emotional growth. I have an atheltic background from basketball, track and field, boxing and am currently an IFBB Professional Body Builder. I have been certified since 2008 as a trainer. My strongest background is I worked as an EMT in California in 2013, before moving back to ATL in 2014, where I worked in South Fulton 911 system from 2014-2019. After that time, I decided to step away and pursue my passion in health and fitness as a full time independant trainer. I look forward and enjoy helping you all transform your bodies into the body you always wanted! Lets work hard and get these results!

Cassondra
Supplement Sales Manager

I started my own health and fitness journey over 10 years ago. I had hit my highest weight of 180 lb! I had to get back into shape as I felt my life was spiraling down. After years of cosmetology then switching ti in home care and senior care, I realized the dire need for health professionals. I acquired my PT certification through NASM at the end of 2020 and started coaching in 2021. I FOUND MY GRIT in 2022 and I'm so excited to grow as a professional and help others achieve a healthier lifestyle! Coaching is my passion. I love helping others move, get fit, and smile!

Meet Aristeo
Grit Life Coach

I was born and raised in GA however my family is from Guatemala, hence the long hair LOL. 

I've always enjoyed helping others since being in sports through high school. I found myself helping others with their fitness and diet as I started college and it just came to me naturally. I used to play sports myself and my favorite thing to teach is speed and agility. I love training atheltes to become better. 

I went through a sprial myself and had to clean myself up, so it feels good to help others who went through what I went through as I can show them how to succeed in their journey. 

When you start your program, don't rush it. Just start with where you are at and we will work along side of you every step of the way.
