I like the energy I feel with the coach and music pumping us up, but I also like the fact that Orangetheory keeps there gym very clean and cold. This is great because many of us are middle aged women and believe me that cold air feels so much better during a workout than a stinking, hot gym. I just dropped LA Fitness for their lack of updating and repairing equipment, and the gym started feeling too hot. Little things make a big difference. Oh, and the soft lighting is great, too!
There is a visible chart showing me that I am, in fact, getting a good, fat burning workout. I also love the fact that I feel so comfortable coming in to a class even though I'm not as in shape as some of the others.
