Granted I’ve only been to orange theory once....HOWEVER, I am so excited to go back. I came in thinking I’d just give it a shot and maybe sign up for a few more classes. OH NO. First off, I walked in and was immediately greeted by name (they saw a new person was coming in and recognized that I had never been!! Talk about knowing your clients!) and then got a tour of the gym and a run down about how orange theory works.
And then came the class. Holy crap. This is a prime example of a full. Body. Workout. I could feel muscles working that I didn’t even know I had. Also, the variety that was present within the class activities made it so a 60 minute workout (something I haven’t done in years) go by so quickly. The coach was so excited and encouraging throughout, and I even felt no judgement when I straight up laid on the ground to catch my breath because I underestimated just how out of shape I am.
After the workout, the coach went through all of my workout stats (from the heart rate monitor they recommend that you wear!) and explained what it all meant.
Needless to say, by the end of it I was ready to throw my money at them because I have never felt excited to get back into shape, and now I do!
Mark was absolutely awesome and Reed at the front desk was super helpful too. I travel a lot for work and have been to studios all over the country but this one really stood out to me. The staff was very welcoming and the energy was present even though it was 5am. Great studio!!
Orangetheory workouts are like a high school sport conditioning all over again! But crunched into one hour instead of a 2.5 hour practice. It feels so good to have a hard workout that reminds me of the workouts I use to challenge myself 8+ years ago.
