intense and diverse and the changes during the workout help me to want to push hard to maximize my heart rate during the class.
After over a year and working out at multiple locations, I will say the music is of poor choices/quality.
For boutique pricing I had expected more curated music selections.
Now that I understand that the music is chosen by the trainers I've come to terms with it not being at the quality of the pricing.
However, it's confusing that the trainers dont seem to consider the membership demographic for their music choices.
My main location is generally 35 and older upper middle class, skewed more female than male.
Yet the music is generally "club" type dance music centered on RAP. Music I dont consider energizing or "fun".
I think it's fair to say if you asked the entire membership if they listen to this type of music outside of OTF, you would get an overwhelmingly negative response.
The trainers and nature of the workouts push me far more than if I went to a gym by myself. I love that I can track my heart rate throughout the workouts. Even if I feel like I'm going as hard as I can, but I'm not in the orange zone on a push or all-out, I know to give it a little extra boost! I'm always better for it and feel like a million bucks when I leave.
I like how OT incorporates the heart rate monitor. It gives me a sense of acconplishment when I hit 12+ splat points. Prior to joining OT I would run or go to the gym on my own and by no means would I push myself to where I do in class.
Everything! The staff and the sense of community at Quail Corners keeps me coming back for more. The coaches are genuinely kind and encouraging. I love not (necessarily) knowing what the workouts are going to be each day. I just know it will be challenging, but well worth it.
