Orangetheory Live - Frequently Asked Questions

About Orangetheory Live

  • Orangetheory Live is an interactive experience, bringing the workouts you love online. It connects the science, coaching, technology and motivation you experience inside an Orangetheory studio, and you can join class from any laptop or desktop, anywhere. Rest assured, this is not your standard video workout or digital fitness product. It’s an energy-packed, interactive fitness experience led by a certified Orangetheory coach guiding you through a true class experience in real time.

  • Orangetheory Live classes are 45-50 minutes. The classes focus on endurance, strength and power exercises and include warm-up and flexibility blocks.

Understanding Orangetheory Live

Joining / Loggin In

  • When you Book a Class in the app you’ll see “Orangetheory Live HQ” favorited as your studio and “Virtual Live 50” as the class type.

    Once you’ve booked a Orangetheory Live workout, you will receive an email 25-30 minutes before class with directions; it will include a link/button to start the class, which will direct you to the Live class platform.

    All participants must be logged on within 5-minutes of class start time. 

  • If you have not received your link to the platform via email, you can visit https://otlive.orangetheory.com/ where you will have the ability to log into your scheduled classes.

  • Use the chat feature in the bottom right hand corner of the Live class platform screen and someone will be able to assist you.
