The 5:30 am classes allow me to get to work on time. I like the high intensity level and interval format of the classes. I also like being able to monitor my effort by watching the screen. Most of all, I like Jordynn as an instructor at the Waterloo, Ontario location!
I like that the classes are different. It helps keep me motivated to go because I know I won't be repeating the same thing all the time.
Ive had surgery on my back and right knee so there are certain exercises that I am not able to do. I appreciate that the the coaches provide modified versions so I am still able to challenge myself and burn calories.
So many things! I was skeptical about the concept prior to joining, but I quickly (at the risk of sounding cheesy) fell in love with OTF! My favourite part has to be the heart rate monitor. As soon as I fall below the orange zone, I pick up the pace to get back up there! Something I wouldn't know to do without seeing my stats on the screen. The trainers and front staff are excellent - they know everyone by name, providing that personal edge you might not get in a typical group fitness class. During class, the trainers monitor your form and technique to ensure it is correct and will encourage you to push yourself (such as trying heavier weights, increasing your speed, etc.) if they feel you're ready. I have attended 45 classes in the 3 months since I joined, and I never stick to anything! Thanks to OTF, I've finally found an exercise routine that works for me and I'll be sticking with it.
I love the 3 part structure to the classes, run/row/floor. Not one day is the same as the next. The staff make a huge effort to know your name and family & friend ties. The music is great, the atmosphere is motivating and fun. You work out hard but it's so much easier to do in a positive environment. The coaches and support staff are awesome. I can't go back to a regular gym now, I have been spoiled!
The Coaches! Jordynn and Jon are AMAZING. They both push me to help achieve my goal and help me remember what I burn for. I am so happy to have them and Orange Theory Fitness in my life. I couldn't ask for a better lifestyle. Thanks for coming to the 'hood!
