I like that it is different every time. It never feels repetitive or boring. The heart rate monitor and screen give you objective data outlining your workout so that you can monitor calories burned. This also subsequently pushes you to work harder. The coach is there to be sure you are doing the weights correctly optimizing your results and they push you to get stronger and get faster than you were before. Orange theory is undoubtedly the cleanest gym I have belonged to. I do like that you get charged if you do not cancel within the allotted 8 hrs. because it holds you accountable and increases your compliance. Orange Theory is worth the money to me, it is the one thing I do for myself. It has changed me physically and mentally for the better.
Everything I need in under an hour, cardio, strength and power.
Get in, get it done, get out!
I don't have time to focus on separate strength & cardio days. The interval training is more effective for me and my needs right now.
Changing exercises keeps me guessing... no excuses if I didn't like the last session, 'cause the next one will be different.
Can see progress as my recovery time (getting back to the green) gets shorter!
I like the science and efficiency behind the workout. The various stations and measured time periods for each section of the workout make it move quickly, so there is a focus on doing your best with the exercise you are performing in the moment. The loud music keeps the environment upbeat and motivating, with the other people in the group and the instructor's monitoring and encouragement also contributing to the positive atmosphere.
I liked the support given by the trainer. It motivated me to do more. I also like the fact that when you're pushed to a higher level, you're able to do it because you know it's not for more than a few minutes. I felt I got a complete workout because of the weight lifting component combined with the treadmill.
Orangetheory is a great workout. The instructors are motivational. Every class is different so you are never bored. There is no judgement because everyone works at their own pace. I am 54 years old and I'm the best shape of my life. My body has totally changed. Having to pay for missing classes makes you accountable and gives you that extra boost you need to attend class if you are feeling lazy that day. Everybody encourages each other. I can't say enough about it. Love Orangetheory!!
