The coaches at OTF Central Boca are awesome. The workouts are great because of the variety and the intensity. I've had a great experience there. OTF has made me look at fitness differently than I used to, and I've learned a lot from it. Before I tried OTF, I never would have thought I would enjoy group fitness classes. Oh, and lastly, some of the coaches might think I don't lift heavy enough weights (not mentioning any names...Dani Lanza, haha) but that's ok because I always give 100% effort. Thanks for being a great studio! I'll continue to recommend it to friends and colleagues.
Three years ago I stopped smoking and started to gain weight. When I reached 20 lbs. of being overweight, I joined Gold’s Gym. I spent the next 2 years with 2-3 personal training sessions a week. I even did their boot camp workout and did 30 minutes on a treadmill after every workout. One day I stepped on a scale and realized that I had gained another 25 lbs. and was at the biggest weight I had ever been, even pregnant with my children. One day, my personal trainer said to me that I needed to join Orangetheory. At the time, I thought the monthly fee was more than I could afford, with my gym membership being so cheap, why not stay where I was at. I learned later that you get what you pay for.
In December 2015, Gold’s closed without any notice. I was devastated and thought I have nowhere I can go now and will never lose this weight, I had been struggling at Gold's for 2 years with minimum results, I will say I built a muscle base to work with. On January 23, 2016, I made the decision to join Orangetheory Central Boca. I will say that I have not always stuck with working out consistently, I lost my way numerous times throughout the year, but one day, when my mind cleared, I realized that I had lost 26 lbs., was still what I considered 20 lbs. over my weight when I quit smoking, but I was a size 8, rather than a 12 at the same weight. I found that with the personal trainers help, encouragement, and knowledge, I had achieved something I never thought I would, I lost weight and gained muscle and slimmed down. I’ve had several members remark to me that I look amazing and that I had lost so much weight. Now, my monthly membership fee is just as important to me as a rent or car payment. I will not stop working out at Orangetheory Central Boca because the remarkable results I see now, are just the beginning to me and my new life of healthy eating and great exercise and its due to the trainers, staff, and the other members.
The environment at Orangetheory Boca is amazing and inspiring! The group classes help to keep you motivated watching others work at being the best they can be. The staff are always friendly and welcoming and will answer any questions they can. The trainers, well, they are all just great at what they do, which is to help us be the best we can be!!!! I know this is a long comment, but I truly wanted to share with everyone that with the right environment and the right trainers and staff, so much more can be accomplished! Thank you Orangetheory Central Boca for helping me to become the better person I know was hiding inside of me!
I love all the trainers. Orange Theory always gives you a great workout. No matter how
you feel when you get there, you always feel so much better when you leave.
The only criticism really is I don't like the partner workouts. I just don't think it's necessary.
I don't need any extra motivation to get a better workout when I go to Orange Theory be-
cause it's intense enough as it is. Plus, it takes extra time to partner everybody up and
for the trainer to explain what the workout will be. I think if people want to do partner workout classes, then make those classes separate. (just not on Monday and Wednesday mornings
at 6:45 which is pretty much the only time I can go on weekdays)!
I love Orange Theory. It's so good for me, and if the partner classes continue, I can always
go solo. Not trying to be anti-social, I just don't think it's a benefit.
