I love how high energy the studio is! The music and instructors (especially Lauren) really help keep me motivated and pushing myself. I've been a runner for a long time and done a lot of different workouts over the years, but have been so surprised and encouraged by the results I am seeing from my OTF workouts!!
Love that it uses different body parts and movements everyday. I dont have to think about the workout before stepping into the Orange and then get excited to find out what we are doing that day.
I feel like there could be more tornado workouts and more partner workouts. I feel like we don't get to know the other participants in our class. At my last studio (La Jolla) our Coach Danielle would sometimes friendly put us against one another, and say "Don't let Drew catch you" or "Come on Kris, Kurt is at 3 miles, you can catch him", or we would learn something about our partner in class and it would just be fun and then create comradery amongst the OTFers. Billy, the studio owner would be there and talk to us afterwards and ask about our family life, etc.
I barely know my classmates here at Encinitas OTF and would like to have that same level of friendly competition. Out of that comes more jokes and more fun and everyone moving as a unit to beat their fitness goals.
Other than that the coaches are stellar and Zach and Lauren are insanely talented and engaging!
