What’s the exercise fad that’s been popping up all over this country, with a scientific twist?

It’s Orangetheory Fitness, an amazing group high intensity, interval training led by a professional personal trainer.  Supporters say that this workout is more than just a theory, that it is based on science.  It is completely about training in the five heart rate zones.  Every member of the class wears a heart rate monitor, tracking everyone workout with results being displayed on a large monitor.


Orange is the most productive heart rate zone, thus the name Orangetheory Fitness.  The main idea being that you are working your heart between 84 and 90 percent of your maximum heart rate.

Each class is different, and every session is energetic. The results? More energy, visible toning and extra calorie burn.
