I know that getting healthy is a New Year's Resolution for many. Luckily for us a new fitness concept has come to Highlands Ranch! The grand opening for Orangetheory Fitness is this weekend! They are located at 9559 S. University Blvd (right next to Papa Murphy's).
Friday, January 6th from 9:30am - 2:30pm they will have a free massage chair. Saturday is the Lululemon trunk show, massage chair, along with face painting. Sunday they will have a My Inspire Wear booth from 9am - 2pm.
I went to a class and loved it! It was a great workout, and the 60 minutes seemed to go by so fast. It's a group personal training session with interval fitness. Orangetheory is based on Excess Post-exercise Oxygen Consumption - burning extra calories up to 36 hours after you workout based on your heart rate. During the class you wear a heart rate monitor and your data is displayed for everyone to see. (At first when I heard about this I was a little nervous and I thought maybe I needed to get into shape before I took a class - but it ended up being really fun and encouraging to see everyone's results). Needless to say I became a member :)
On their website you can print off a coupon for a free class. If you like them on facebook you will be entered to win a free 1 year membership (currently there are only 162 people so the odds are pretty good since they will pick the winner on January 9th)!
They have some really good grand opening specials if you can make it in this weekend. Also right now there is a Living Social deal that is $20 for 3 workouts!
I hope everyone is having a great start to the New Year!
