The exercises are different for every class, and if you ever need to modify any of the exercises the coach will always have alternative moves, whether you are just beginning, need additional challenge, or maybe have an injury.The max attendance for the class is 26 and we all have our own treadmill, rower, and weight station. Another bonus is that they have an app that easily allows you to schedule your classes and monitor your calendar. If you don’t cancel 8 hours before your class you will get charged $12, but I don’t want to pay any additional fees on top of my membership so I make sure to go, it keeps me accountable! Out of all the different workouts I have done thus far in my life it is the hardest and most challenging and I love it! My goal is 4 days a week and throw in a 5th class when I can. I joined their transformation challenge and first place wins $2500!!! It is based on percentage of body fat lost. It would be great to win but I am doing it more to keep me on track and push myself a little more.
I have never really had a weight problem but as you get older and go through menopause your metabolism does slow down and I have put on weight that I am not comfortable with. Since starting Orange Theory in February I haven’t set foot on the scale- I just wanted to fit back into some clothes that are too small. I love fashion so it’s really important to me that I feel good in clothes or styles that I like. I am impatient so if I don’t see the number on the scale change quickly I get discouraged and I didn’t want that to happen, so I made the decision to stay away from the scale. I did finally get on the scale a couple weeks ago, because I had to have a starting point for the transformation challenge, and when I checked in for the challenge this week I learned I had lost 4 lbs- yay for results!! I seriously think it is moving more, eating less, and choosing healthy options, no big surprise there! Finding a work out that I enjoyed and would stick with has been my struggle over the years and Orange Theory is checking all the boxes. In addition, it’s also been helping that my husband and I have been eating from a meal plan company so stay tuned for a post on that!
I will post at the end of the 8 week transformation my results, wish me luck!!
