Orangetheory is based on the five heart rate training zones. Unlike high-intensity interval training (HIIT), you adjust your level of effort during the workout based on what your heart is telling you. The goal is to spend 12 to 20 minutes with your heart rate elevated in the “Orange Zone” to boost your metabolism, burn fat and burn more calories.
As a busy person, I needed one class where I could get a great cardio and weight resistance workout.
The biggest hurdle is just going to your first class. Once you see you can get through one, the rest comes easy. They make it fun and it becomes your family.
I love the accountability of pre-booking classes and building them into my schedule, as well as tracking previous benchmark results.
