Have you been to Orangetheory Fitness in Capitol Hill already?
If you have, you either love it or you love to hate it (because you know the high intensity workout is good for you). From a trainer perspective, here are the top two reasons why I find OTF 60 minute workout to be so addictive.
1. Results… plain and simple
The combination of strength and cardio, along with heart rate monitored workouts, music, and a motivating trainer have already helped hundreds of people in Seattle burn fat and get leaner. I truly enjoy noticing my body feeling leaner even after only three workouts. In our first two months of operating, we had men and women lose between 15-30 lbs in six weeks.
Not only do I enjoy my own personal results from the workouts, I also love noticing our members get leaner and leaner. Usually you notice the fat loss in your face around the neck and the chin — the fat melts away and I see people gaining so much confidence.
2. The feeling afterwards
Being part of a positive fitness-minded community is something everybody should experience for over-all health. That’s not main reason I keep coming back though… I can’t get enough of the “post-workout HIGH” when my body is in recovery mode after working out for 54 minutes. After the 1 hour workout, which is the ideal amount of time for exercise, I can feel my body releasing those recovery hormones and putting me into a better state of mind regardless of what happened earlier in my day.
Mentally, the workout is the best mood adjuster available. Physically, the workout gives me a great high that ultimately leaves me energized and looking forward to the next.
I am addicted to OTF most of all because it is something special
Kyle Anderson began the launch of OTF Seattle about a year ago and I came on board around the same time. Without a doubt, our small, modest staff has the most family culture out of any group I’ve worked with. We truly are brothers and sisters around here and we invite members to be the same. So why not kick ass in the workout and let that positive action spill over to the other areas of your life.
Whether fitness, fat loss, overall health… OTF took me away from the idea of individual training and has shown me how group training is the future of fitness. Push on — get in the Orange!
