How many workouts have you tried before you found a routine that finally stuck? We’ve all been there. You might remember the days of walking into your neighborhood big box gym and wandering around the various machines with no idea where to start – no direction on what combinations of workout machines will work in your body’s favor. You walk out feeling like you just wasted your time and money – two of life’s most prized possessions.
Key takeaway? Don’t settle on a fitness routine that doesn’t inspire you to change.
At Orangetheory Fitness, we take the guesswork out of exercise, and we also find ways to make your workouts anything but routine. With workout templates changing every day, and fun, engaging benchmark challenges strategically scheduled at different points in each calendar year, there are always new goals to set your mind to. And the only person you’re competing against is you. Constantly switching up the workout not only makes it more fun, but it helps challenge your body in new ways to ensure you never plateau. This day-to-day change will continuously change your body from the inside out. And that’s what will create results!
No matter what you’re looking for in a workout, you’re sure to find it at Orangetheory. We tailor every workout to your unique fitness abilities to ensure you always walk out of our studios feeling successful. But the best part is, you might discover your inner athlete with all of our events throughout the year. Whether you’ve set your sights on an upcoming 5K, are conditioning for a triathlon, or are just ready to up the intensity, every Orangetheory workout provides a foundation for more strength, more energy, and more LIFE.
Participation in the annual fitness events is not mandatory, but they’re a great way to quantify and track personal improvements over time. For example, how you performed during a 200M row in January versus a 200M row in April will be different with consistent attendance at OTF. For those of you looking to challenge yourselves or engage in a little friendly competition, consider participating in these annual (or semi-annual) events. The best part is, if you don’t want to compete, results are tracked via personal improvements in addition to a leaderboard. And again, they are for all fitness levels!
