The staff, Lauren, Rachelle, Heidi, are always fantastic. Couple that with encouragement from Heidi with heavier weights and you have a winning combination. Add in the new management and you have made Belmar my home again, thank you!
I had Mandi as an instructor, and she was amazing! Super attentive of all the members she was coaching- I loved that she knew everyone in the room by name. I'm an OTF coach in the Chicago region, and I'll definitely back to see her on my next trip to Denver!
The workouts move quickly, love they way I feel afterwards!
Love coach Heidi! I've been a member at Belmar since it opened, she is hands down the best. It's unfortunate there is such turnover with the other coaches. Most don't even know my name now.
Studio and coach were very friendly on my first visit. I recently relocated to the area and had already been with OTF for about 3 months prior to transferring, so a new studio put me out of my comfort zone. The staff was welcoming and the coach made sure I was doing okay throughout the workout. Although I am currently adjusting to the elevation difference I did better than expected my first class. I will be back for more classes and will be bringing my boyfriend to sign up with me.
I like the diversity of workouts and always having a different set of exercises each day. One suggestion I have from my perspective is to have the instructors always offer an alternative exercise, as this varies from one instructor to another.
I appreciate all of the instructors asking about injuries prior to start of the workouts, and I think it would be okay if instructors recognize and even on occasion, recommend "green" performances for some participants. As much as I benefit from the workouts, I find it difficult to attend back-to-back sessions because of the recovery time for me. I'm not sure if it's better to be able to attend daily sessions, or to max out on performance and only attend three sessions during the week!
Thank you OTF staff,
Every work out is different so walking into class you have no idea what to expect and that makes working out fun and more interesting.
Knowing your zone encourages you to push yourself more to get those splat point. It’s also motivating to compete against yourself, test your limits, work hard, and strive to give it all you’ve got.
Always different, always fun! Love the energy the instructors bring each time! Tried another studio the other day and afterwards felt very fortunate to call belmar my Home studio...very welcoming here!
