GRIT (an acronym that stands for Grueling Resolve and Innovative Techniques) is planned to be a mixed martial arts studio for MMA competitors and fitness enthusiasts at all levels. Located in Milwaukie, Oregon, this business was envisioned to be more than just a gym offering workout space.
The gym’s private ownership will allow Carson and Haili Frei to share their passion for martial arts with the community. Guided by Carson’s 14 years of coaching and professional fighting experience, GRIT will develop athletes with goals that range from fitness fulfillment to fight competitions. Carson plans to offer group martial arts classes as well as one on one mentoring, and Haili will round out the gym’s programming with cardio kickboxing classes. See the company’s website for more information and the full schedule of classes.
GRIT MMA recently received financing from Mount Hood Economic Alliance (MHEA) to cover the purchase cost of the gym’s equipment. MHEA is one of the many small business lending programs administered by MCEDD. Resources are available to help your business today! Learn more here.
