I just want to say that Nikki Rios is an amazing coach!! I loved her energy, she had me pumped!!
She would observe everyone as she walked around the room and compliment, correct or push them a little harder. Her constant motivating hype is definitely impressive. Orange Theory is very lucky to have her as part of their staff. I do not get to do her class too often since I reguraly attend Coach Kriss class which I love doing. His super high intensity classes always modivate me to come in at 5am. And now I have another coach with the same high intensity to look forward to seeing!
I love all the coaches! Carl, Elizabeth, Denise and Nikki are my favorites. They really push you and they keep you motivated. The staff at the front is always so friendly and remembers me by name everytime I walk in!
I love that these workouts never get easier!!! After coming here for a year and a half and taking over 400 classes, it's still a challenge. Coach Kris is the reason this studio is as great as it is! Don't get me wrong, coach Nikki and Elizabeth are fantastic too...but Kris is on a whole other level...he truly cares about every single member personally. He always makes sure everyone feels welcome, when there are new members he introduces them to the usual group in that class. He takes the time to challenge members individually by handing them a heavier weight or giving them a goal he wants them to achieve on the rower or treadmill. I've been to a lot of other studios and even classes at our studio and he really is the only coach that makes that extra effort. It is apparent when you take his class that he truly has a passion for this and wants to see people succeed with every fiber in his body. His music is also on point ALL of the time! Basically you haven't taken a real OTF class until you've taken his class. Trust me it is worth the early morning wake up. 5am never felt so good!
I loved the variety and heat rate monitoring as a way to keep a good pace through the workout. The staff was very friendly and energetic. I went with my wife and it was a great way for us to workout together. Our coach, Nikki, was fabulous.
