I love that it's the most intense workout and individually based though in a group setting. The OTF coaches are so encouraging! It was my first class in a year and at this location and I loved "brown sugar" as a coach!
It's a Total workout-- it works all of your body and provides plenty of cardio which really gets you in great shape! I can run all over those tennis courts and get to almost all of the balls because I am truly more fit- all due to Irange Theory
I have been doing OT for 2 1/2 years now... I'm in my late 50's- I will say that I'm starting to get lots of injuries and it seems to be one thing after another. OT can be jolting to the body... I prob need to add some yoga to it bc I'm always feeling something that hurts these days- shoulder, lower back, quads, heel... don't know why it has all occurred in the past 6 months-- maybe too much OT.. but it's still the only thing that keeps me fit!
Orange Theory is always a unique workout so you're constantly challenged and you simply can't plateau. It's a great way to de-stress because you get in there, get going and all you think about is the task immediately at hand. Nothing else. Base, push or all out? Where are you on your rep count in the weight room? Can you conquer 100 meters in less than 13 strokes on the rower?
What I think is important is that anyone of any age and any fitness level can be successful with OTF - because success is defined at a personal level. "What's your reason? What's your purpose?" is one we hear from Deb all of the time. Whatever makes you a success for the hour is celebrated by your coach and fellow classmates. And your definition can change for every class you attend.
I recommend OTF to anyone who asks me about it. I will usually talk their ear off about it.
I love that it's different each time I go. It keeps me interested. However the quality of the front desk staff and keeping up with the cleanliness has dropped significantly. The people at the desk seem to sit at the desk and not move from there. They used to be uP cleaning and checking on things before. It is disappointing considering the amount of money we spend there.
