With its heart-rate monitored, full-body workouts, ORANGETHEORY FITNESS (OTF) is designed to get you burning calories not only in its intense one-hour classes, but also up to thirty-six hours after your workout. Each group class packs a wallop. With music pumping in the background and dimmed lights, a coach leads sweaty clients through a constant rotation of running, rowing and floor/weight work. Using a heart-rate monitor is a must, to help you target your fat-burning zone.
Orangetheory is available all over the country. Locally, Mark Molina brought studios to Fairfield and Norwalk—and now Westport. “The town is highly educated and prioritizes fitness and wellness as part of a happy, healthy lifestyle,” he says. “Westporters have high standards and want the best of everything, especially when it’s affordably priced.”
Join with a membership, class packs or individual classes, and you can work out at sister studios. 645 Post Rd. E.; orangetheoryfitness.com
