What is the theory behind Orangetheory?
Orangetheory is not your ordinary gym. Clients participate with highly skilled trainers in specially designed workouts that consist of 30-60 minute intense interval training sessions. Cardio sessions include running on treadmills or using the water rowers. Strength training session may involve free weights, TRX bands, kettle bells, bosu balls or medicine balls.
Orangetheory is unique in that it combines two concepts: high intensity interval training and group fitness training. Clients can expect to burn even more calories due to the Excess Post–Exercise Oxygen Consumption (EPOC) that comes from intense interval training. The result? A stimulated metabolism and a feeling of increased energy that lasts throughout the day.

Group classes are capped at 24 participants, and there are no minimum participants in any class. There is a healthy camaraderie, and Long believes that this an extremely beneficial atmosphere: “It absolutely gets people more motivated, “ he says. “We have a great sense of community at our studios. “It’s also a great environment for friends, couples, families and co-workers. “The energy is contagious.”
