I can tailor it to my level of fitness and achieve individual results. However, the decibel level of the music is going to render everyone hard of hearing...not tomorrow, but decades from now. I know from personal experience. So I wear earplugs now to save what hearing I have left. I noticed when I worked out at the Chicago OTF that the music was about half the volume.....
Also, I don't like partner workouts, and OTF now calls and warns me every time one is scheduled...nice personal service.
At 67, I'm not your demographic, and most people are surprised to learn that I work out at OTF...but I do really like it. I would suggest more Tornado style workouts....the Saturday one at Lowry is always packed...people love it. Why not do it more often?
I push myself more than I ever have in the setting of orange theory. Having a coach there to movivate me makes all the difference. Anyone can get on a treadmill and jog or walk with little effort. But OTF makes you want to go harder to prove to yourself in front of yourself, coach and peers that you can do anything! I also love the weight room and water rower portion because historically, I would never touch that equipment in a regular gym. In OTF, the exercises are demonstrated for you which makes it easier to understand. The stations are nicely spread out so you don't feel like you're on top of another member. And then... the MUSIC! It's been proven that you work out harder with motivating, up-beat music, and I believe it!
Everyone at OTF Lowry is amazing! Sometimes when I'm visiting Starbucks (2 convenient doors down) I'll pop into OTF just to say HI and see everyone's smiling faces.
The Coaches always have great music to play and keep me motivated to do my best during the class.
The Front Desk is always super helpful, always happy and energetic and welcoming.
I highly recommend this studio to all my friends and family.
It is a mixture of things so you don't get bored and it really makes you push yourself more than just going to the gym. At the same time, it teaches you how to push yourself when you do want to just go to the gym. Coach Tiffany is fantastic and motivational!
having a group of people with similar ideals and work ethic helps my mindset to not be intimidated by others around. Its basically an inexpensive way of having a personal trainer at every workout session but less stressful.
