I love the way the trainers push me, because I know that I would not be able to push myself as hard if I work out by myself. I love the work outs and how I feel afterward. The workouts truly push my body and mental state into improving myself.
I look forward to the different classes and I also look forward to the different coaches - they all have a different style. What I like the best is that, even though I may not be in my 20's, and I can't run at a level 10, I get as much encouragement and guidance from the coaches.
I'm two years into the OTF work-out routine, and I still love it as much as I did when I first started working out at Orange Theory.
The reason is the trainers, especially David Chapman, who always works so hard to assure that I - as well as other members, are holding our positions properly, and performing the excersizes in the way they were designed to be performed. In two years, I have not had one injury; not one strained muscle; not one bad thing. Only good things have come to me as a result of coming to OTF and working out as hard as I can.
I am the sort of person who push myself as hard as I possibly can. I just need a little push to get it started!
So, I'm relieved to say I never got hurt while working out at OTF. Instead, I continue to see gains every week, and I've been maintaining my weight loss. I love my body, and even though it can still improve by alot, I will continue to enjoy coming to Orange Theory Fitness.
All the trainers are first-rate, caring people. The nice people who greet me at the front desk are every bit as important as the trainers; Heidi, Morgan, Courtney, Matt and the other guy who's name escapes me at the moment. I like most of the members that come to OTF also! They are dedicated to getting into the best shape that they've ever been in. I am friends with a few of them and we gather outside of OTF on Wednesdays for outdoor walks. It's all very cool.
If a person dedicates 100% focus, energy and drive into their work-outs, and conducts themselves in a focused manner, they will see gains the way I've seen them. One can still have fun and work-out, it's something that goes hand in hand and is quite natural.
One thing that Coach Dave recommended to me that I have seen work is he says that the minimum a person should work out is 3 days per week at OTF. Ideal is four days per week, and then if a person pushed to work-out more days per week, then it is up to them to decide how good they feel, and their acceptable level of soreness. Soreness is a good thing; it shows that you are breaking down muscle and building it up to the next level of fitness.
David, Jonathan, Ryan, Ashley, Linda, Buddy, Avi and I hope I'm not forgetting anyone, are first-rate, excellent trainers that are in tip-top shape. They sell the brand of OTF better than anything else can.
I hope OTF stays in business forever!!!! It's the best work-out in the planet!!! OTF ROCKS!
