Going to the gym is great, but if you go with no idea how to use the equipment or how to achieve your goal it can get discouraging. While personal trainers can help they can be hard to find. Orange Theory Fitness eliminates those problems by holding small classes with personal trainers.
“I started here March of last year,” manager Chris JaegerI said. “I’ve been in the fitness industry for 23 years. I started as a personal trainer and I’ve worked with many different people who have had different results. Orange Theory Fitness is a class based work facility. You book a time and work with a personal trainer.”
Orange Theory Fitness started in Florida six years ago and has since spread all around the world with 600 studios open. They work to integrate tech and science into working out. Participants are given a heart rate monitor that is displayed on screen below their name. They are assessed beforehand on their goals and based on that, their heart rate on screen displays if they’re in their target range.
“I opened this studio,” trainer Stephanie Layton said. “I’ve been with them for two years. I love Orange Theory, it’s like its own community. We never repeat a template so it’s constant variety.”
Classes are 60 minutes long and the same class is held all day. The studios try to accommodate their hours for those around them. Orange Theory Fitness in St.Charles holds most of their classes before and after work hours. The class is provided with treadmills, rowing machines, and weights. The workouts are designed to be full body and done once a day up to five times a week.
“It’s a fun environment you get to see people transform and you get to know some cool people on a personal level,” worker Abbie Webb said.
