GRINTA is the Italian word for perseverance, perseverance. You often hear sports journalist say about cyclists:
"What a grinta on the face of this athlete!"
GRINTA wants to make sure that every (top) athlete, of every level, has the optimal conditions to bring his/her grinta to the surface. It offers a framework in different areas: sports massage, taping and small group training depending on your objective (at work, preparation for the ski season, general fitness ... ).
In addition, we organize congresses and evening seminars to strengthen the entire framework of a (top) athlete on the basis of scientifically founded knowledge.
