Orange Theory Fitness of Georgia
I hosted the Area Developers for Orange Theory Fitness of Georgia, Laura Salatino, and Stacie Vaillencort. These two entrepreneurs brought the fitness concept to the Atlanta area and they’ve grown rapidly in the metro and in Georgia.
Orangetheory Fitness (www.orangetheoryfitness.com) is the energizing group personal training, interval fitness concept that is sweeping the nation. Backed by the science of excess post-‐exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC)
, Orangetheory Fitness is a 60-‐minute workout broken into intervals of cardiovascular and strength training. Participants burn from 500 to 1000 calories per 60-‐minute training session (individual results vary), using a variety of equipment including treadmills, rowing machines, TRX suspension training™ and free weights. I burned 818 calories in my workout session at OTF.
The physiology behind the Orangetheory Fitness workout involves heart-‐rate -‐monitored training designed to keep heart rates in a target zone that stimulates metabolism and increases energy. The result is the Orange Effect– more energy, visible toning and extra calorie burn for up to 36 hours post-‐workout. Orangetheory Fitness studios are designed to motivate.
Highly qualified personal trainers inspire participants to beat plateaus and stick to their goals. The dynamic created by working out in a group setting has proven benefits– support, energy, endurance and accountability. This is the
psychology behind Orangetheory Fitness. Each modern studio welcomes participants with upbeat music, state
-‐of-‐the -‐art equipment, contemporary lighting and art. Studios are spacious and clean, with separate men’s
and women’s locker rooms and showers.
And, if you are a business owner or executive, OrangeTheory Fitness offers corporate group rates that allow you to simultaneously provide a terrific benefit to your employees while enjoying decreased healthcare benefits costs as your employees become more and more fit!
