Orange Theory Fitness:

Orange Theory Fitness is a “hot” new group studio fitness concept that is spreading like wildfire across the nation!

The Orange 60 workout is interval-based cardio and strength training program, backed by the science of target zone heart-rate monitoring.  Heart-rate monitor training is designed to keep your heart rate in the “Orange Zone” stimulating your metabolism and giving you increased energy!  Extra calorie burning takes place up to 36 hours after  the workout.  The Orange 60 workout  has been featured in the New York Times and is touted as the “best one hour workout in the country.”

During the Orange 60 workout  you will use treadmills, rowing machines, TRX suspension training, and free weights. The Orange 60 workout helps build strength, increases energy,  and tones and shapes your body.  Participants of all different fitness levels burn 600-1000 calories in a 60 minute session. 

Orange Theory Fitness will be located at 9434 Manchester  Road in Rock Hill, MO.  We are scheduled to open in mid-October .  We will be offering discounted memberships beginning tomorrow (July 28th).  Please contact us at (314) 736-1170 to learn more about this great workout and to join.
