Orangetheory Fitness was founded in 2010 by current CEO David Long. The company operates a chain of boutique fitness franchised gym studios.
The Orangetheory Fitness class is a HIIT training program that allows for short periods of intense exercise, followed by short rest periods. HIIT programs have been shown to burn fat and calories for as long as 36 hours after exercise has stopped.
Members can book classes through the Orangetheory cell phone app which displays the location, day, and time of open classes as well as which coach will be teaching. Members have the option to book classes at any OTF location around the world.
Each participant has the option to wear a heart rate monitor that is synchronized to the screen that all participants can see.
The corporate office for Orangetheory Fitness is located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
