I am a runner. If I belonged to a "regular" gym, I would use the treadmill, but be too scared to approach the weights. I love the fact that I am lifting weights! I would never do that if I had to on my own!
The workouts are never the same, and the trainers are always encouraging members to challenge themselves. Individuals can work as hard as they want, and modifications are always available as needed. Great family atmosphere and new friendships made - love it!
The workouts push me to do things I wouldn't do on my own. I love how you can see your heart rate on the screen so you know if you need to push a little harder. I especially love the high calorie burn I achieve each day! It's a great atmosphere and it never feels intimidating.
I enjoy the trainer talking me through it every step of the way. I love that it's a perfect mix of cardio and strength training, and that there's options for power walkers AND runners. I never feel like I can't keep up and I actually like working out!
The rotation through the different elements of the workout keep it interesting, as well as make it doable. It's a total workout, with options to modify that makes it appropriate for all levels. And it's visually measurable, which is a good aid that can be used to motivate you to challenge yourself against your own achievements.
Beyond the structure of the OTF program and concept, my experience of this branch has been of excellence. It's a positive environment with fabulous staff, coaches cheering you on, humor to get you through any hurdles in the grind -- it's an all around fun place to go workout, and to be around some great people! It's supportive and like a family of people who care.
I think the leadership is reflected throughout, and that the whole operation and experience is symbiotic -- much to be proud of!
