Elise is celebrating her ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY with OTF Capitol Hill!! Elise has completed 75 workouts since joining and is LOVING IT. @orangetheory is the first fitness program she’s loved and loves to stick with. So glad you’re our member! 🧡💪🍊
P.S. Check out those biceps! #otf#otfcapitolhill#happyanniversary
When I saw photos from an event this June, my first thought was “wow, I look awesome!” 2015/2016 weren’t great years for me when it comes to being healthy and confident. I never liked a photo of myself, was at my heaviest, and finally needed to do something about it. I don’t really care what number is on the scale anymore, but I do want to feel strong, exude confidence, and just feel damn good about myself. It’s totally worth it.
I go out on Friday nights for very few things. This was one of them. Funnest workout, ever! Our amazing @otfmoorestown owner, @jackiedodig not only shows up but works out with us. #ILoveOTF#FitFam#otf @orangetheory
Alright, alright, I admit it. 🙋🏻♀️ I did indeed jump on the #orangetheoryfitness bandwagon. But hear me out👂🏼
When I (Hallie) first moved back to Savannah, my activity level went 👇🏼 because I went from two high paced jobs, riding several horses a week, yoga twice a week, and hiking frequently to a lower paced job, no riding/yoga yet, and the only “hiking” was the hike from the parking lot to the shoreline to park my butt in the sand to sit on the beach for a few hours...🤔 AKA not very active at all!
When researching gyms, I only wanted✌🏼 things:
1. A gym that offered classes. My motivation level is significantly improved in a class where I have someone pushing me AND making sure I am using correct form in my exercises.
2. A gym that I could access anywhere, even if I was traveling. Between going to #LakeSinclair#MyrtleBeach#DisneyWorld and #ColoradoSprings all in the next 6 months, with a possible trip to #Atlanta thrown in the mix and a trip to #Europe being planned for next year, I wanted a gym that I could access on the go so I could ensure I am getting my money’s worth.
I had a friend who was a member, so I went to class with her that night and got to try it for 🆓 Which is what drew me in to give it a try in the first place. But I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it!
I wasn’t crazy about their prices, but I really liked the fast pace, the instructors are great, the fact it keeps track of my HR, and that I can access it just about anywhere since they’re worldwide! So now I am a big fan of #OTF workouts 🧡🧡🧡 (confession though: this workout was from a week ago...and yes I do use my splat points to justify me drinking more wine during the week🍷)
What do y’all do to stay in shape while traveling? Do you find a gym, run, lift, or just toss your exercise routine to the wind for a break (that used to be my favorite way to go 😂) Let us know in the comments below! I’m interested to hear what others do! 🤸🏻♂️
Parental Advisory Tornado was a huge hit! We raised another $720 for St. Jude! Thank you SO much to everyone who came out and burned for something bigger tonight. You all are truly amazing. Special birthday shout out to Ray and Adrienne! Way to celebrate another year 🎈🧡😊 #otf#strongertogether#fitfam#squadgoals#stjude#morelife
Such an inspiration to us all!! We love having you as a part of our Fitfam. See what long time member Amanda has to say about OTF Hi! My name is Amanda. I have been a member at OrangeTheory since they opened. I remember seeing an ad on facebook for a new gym in Saskatoon and thought "What the heck, I'll give it a shot.". I went in not knowing exactly what to expect. After my first class I was hooked! I immediately signed up.
I've joined many gyms and different fitness classes and have found that they eventually lose their allure for me. Not OrangeTheory. The workouts are varied and challenge me in new ways each time I go. The staff takes the time to learn your name and about you so they're able to have personal conversations with you. This is something that does not happen at other gyms. I've also made some great friends being a member here. OrangeTheory creates a culture of togetherness and "family" where, regardless of your ability, you always feel welcome, supported and appreciated.
The amount of growth I've seen in myself both physically and mentally is remarkable. I'm able to push myself through challenges with more consistency than before and I'm starting to take on challenges that I'd never have thought of a few years ago.
The philosophy to push yourself, even if it's only 0.1% harder, is one that works both on the treadmill and in life. I have found the best growth occurs out of my comfort zone and I feel that OrangeTheory has had a huge role in this. Thank you to the staff for helping me in my growth! #spartanrace#otf#otfyxe#otffam#otfstonebridge#ourmembersrock#morelife#sheisamazing
If you know him, you just know! Nick is so fast on the treadmills, powerful and efficient on the rowers and so strong, with quality form on the floor.
Next time you see this guy, give him a high five, a hand shake, or a thank you. He is a UFA firefighter. This week has been a tough week for our Utah fire guys. We appreciate you so much!
Who’s joining me and my @therock eyebrow for class tomorrow? There are still spots available in the 90 min!!!! 🔶🔹🔶🔹🔶🔹🔶🔹🔶
Then come join me to celebrate the birthday of myself and coach @katelynmitchell at the Hub in 30A!!! 7pm. Be there or else you’re dead to me.
FINALLY got to workout 50 today at @otf_woodbury !! First time back after a two month break because of an injury. I won’t lie, it was hard. My all out pace is what my base pace was before (no exaggeration). I have to modify a lot, which can be a bit annoying because I have to bug the coach constantly. But I love being back so I’m taking it extra slow to make sure I don’t get hurt again. #otf#orangetheoryfitness#moreotfmorelife#firstworkoutback#espday
I am not one for long captions but felt the need to share this, after having Romey it’s been so hard to get back to my workouts...I’ve made every excuse from not having the time or the money and yesterday Darnell called me out on it and said it’s time..time for me to go back to my happy Orange Zone #OTF and make that commitment to myself to invest in ME and be the best me... I almost cried and nearly gave up during today’s class but I didn’t give up..I joined the #transformationchallenge and I am in it to win it... I am never happy with my pictures so my day 1 goal is to let go of that and post pictures of my new journey....shout out to Darnell for pushing me back in the door and Amber for walking the path with me... #orangetheoryfitness
