I absolutely love working out at Orangetheory Fitness! The staff and trainers know me by name, and make me feel special right when I walk in the door. I love the variety of exercises and each session is a surprise for what's going on that day. The one hour workout is super effective. The trainers motivate me and push me to limits I didn't know were possible. Since I've been at OTF, I would not be able to go back to a regular gym. I wouldn't be able to push myself to keep going the way the trainers do for me. I feel challenged each session, and I feel accomplished at the end. Plus, the play list is fabulous during the workouts!
In regards to the workouts themselves, I like the variety of exercises and short durations. That keeps my mind moving and I feel like I am able to push harder during the workouts.
From a coach standpoint, I like that most of the coaches at Maple Grove encourage us as a group and individually. The coaches that stand out to me are the ones who know our names and give us encouragement throughout the workout. Even if they don’t acknowledge me personally, I appreciate that they know the others in the class and cheer them along.
I love that every Orange Theory workout is different, and each person focuses on their own individual goals. The trainers are super helpful and encouraging, no matter what your fitness level. I like the balance of cardio and strength, and how time flies by! The times are very convenient, and the app makes it easy to manage.
I can see the owners investing their time and money into it - last year new rowers, this year the new screens (I really like them). The training sessions are always different and the 3G makes the hour go faster. Variety and switching stations helps.
Ultimately, it's the change that happened to my body by being at OT, and I really only had 5 pounds to lose. I'm older, so keeping it off is a challenge. OT kicks butt!
Had never been to the Maple Grove OTF before. Everyone was so welcoming and made me feel at home! Coach Jared was awesome, encouraging and very helpful getting me settled in at the new facility. I was nervous going in to a new site but that didn't last long! Great workout, fun and enjoyable staff and members.
I speak highly about the orange theory workout and studio to anyone who will listen, often comparing it favorably to other gym experiences I have had. The workout is great, the staff encouraging, the facility convenient. It's all good as far as I'm concerned.
