The choices we make can be heavily influenced by recommendations, especially from the opinion of someone we respect or look up to.
Cue former First Lady, Michelle Obama – Michelle travels a lot as part of her ongoing charity work and book tour, and inevitably travel can have an impact on your fitness routine.
Luckily for Michelle, she’s found a fitness offering with over 1200 studios around the world, providing an optimised 1-hour, full body workout that is guaranteed to get your heart racing and your fat zone dropping!
Mrs Obama was speaking to Stephen Colbert at The O2 Arena in London as part of her book tour following the release of her bestselling memoir ‘Becoming’, and once again quoted Orangetheory as her go-to, when it comes to her fitness routine – even attending the Orangetheory Islington studio whilst visiting the capital.
Orangetheory Fitness was named the ‘number one group workout’ in the US by the New York Times, and it’s no surprise that it’s taken off so successfully across the globe. The heart-rate zone monitored, high intensity workout ensures that every member of the class works to their personal optimal fat-burning zone, whilst getting a healthy mix of cardiovascular and strength-based training.
Coaches are also present throughout to provide a Personal Trainer experience, so there is no undertraining or overtraining; ensuring the most effective workout you can achieve in the most convenient time; just 60 minutes, guaranteeing dramatic changes in fitness and fat loss with just 3-4 sessions per week.
Now, Greater Manchester’s own Altrincham is home to one of these very studios! Orangetheory Fitness is live and rocking the streets of Altrincham town centre. Having launched in January, it already boasts a healthy community of members, already achieving some incredible transformations after a recent 8-week fat loss challenge.
