I love Orange Theory. The energy of the coaches and staff if awesome! I feel as each class is different and not repetative. I am always sore after, which is great knowing I'm always getting a great workout.
What a great first experience!
I showed up 30 minutes early (highly recommend), was explained in great detail what to expect, how Orangetheory works, and was shown how to use the machines so I'd be ready to go once the class began.
The class was great! I loved the trainer. She helped me when I needed it. Nothing left to guessing, was told what to do, no thinking required. The energy from the music was perfect. I loved my heart rate monitor on the screen showing me when I needed to pick it up and when I was where I needed be. At the end of the class, the trainer went over all my numbers which I would have never understood before and now know what to look for in classes to come. In addition to all of that, the OTF app you can download on your phone, records your numbers for each class so you track your progress, how awesome is that?!
Of course I signed up immediately and look forward to many more fun, energetic classes!
OTF is a very challenging full hour workout with great coaches that motivate you to keep going and achieve your personal best! I never workout this hard when I go to the gym or out for a run myself. I love that people at all fitness levels can do this workout at their own pace but still get in a very good high calorie burn. It's also nice to see familiar faces and build relationships with other members. Love this place and recommend it to people all the time!
Heart rate monitors are the way to go, and being able to check the screens at any time to gauge where I want to be gives me the best workout possible. Fun, challenging routines that put you in the 3 zones for the right amount of time. Every day is new; they are always mixing it up with the workouts. Encouraging, energetic trainers that care about all the members. No pressure or competition. Lights are not bright and unflattering. Equipment is clean and up-to-date. Front desk is friendly and welcoming. Members are generally super nice at our location - courteous and not full of themselves, which is part of the reason I left my old gym. We're just people, trying to get a good workout and feel great! No one's better than anyone else. I feel happy and energized after every workout at OTF.
The workouts are always a little different. This changes the routine and keeps the members in engaged. Additionally, there is low impact on a members body after a daily workout where they may have burned 700+ calories. This can not be said for most programs and it keeps me motivated for the burn and how it makes me feel.
