It is an overall workout, I have attended two classes by Lora and I feel the burn. During my first class it was easy to follow and Lora was coaching me on form and encouraging me to hit my mark which was came quicker than I had expected...it was maintaining it that was a bit more challenging, it was my first class and I was giving my all. Two days later ( I needed some recovery time), I took my second class and the burn is constant. Looking forward to my third class this Saturday! I am not a gym person, I ride a bike daily, and swim just as often, orange is a great addition to my routine!
The OTF workout/method keeps my heart rate in the training range far longer and better than I can do myself at my regular gym. In recent years, it's become increasingly frustrating to try to do HIIT because ignorant people sit on weight training machines, benches, or other equipment texting, checking Facebook or Instagram or talking on the phone instead of working out. I love the organized OTF "stations" and the push I get from the instructor; and the variety in the workouts.
Both the coaches and staff make this location great. They engage with ALL of the members by name and I really feel welcomed.
All the coaches are up-beat and always have extra encouragement to get everyone thru the workout. I know I feel very accomplished at the end.
I didn't like exercise classes before because I felt intimidated by others that could do the exercises perfectly and "keep up" in the class- and the class leaders seemed to ignore those of us that weren't very good. At OTF everyone is motivated by the Coaches AND each other as we "high five" a fellow OTF'er with a job well done at the end of class.
Thank you Head Trainer Lora, and Coaches Blasi, EK, GC for leading/pushing us to be our best. (I can and I will!)
