Orange Theory Fitness Reviews

One of the main attractions of Orange Fitness is its unique combination of two concepts: group personal training and heart rate-monitored interval training. An exercise physiologist designed this one-hour constantly changing workout.

The elements of this unique exercise system consist of different components such as strength training using rowing machines and treadmills and high-energy cardiovascular and suspension training together with the use of free weights with short bursts of intense exercise.

The workout is divided into blocks of work. It is devised in such a way that the individual is able to view his heart rate on a screen. This set up encourages him to go on and do his best to achieve his desired results.

The Orange Fitness system is an effective combination of muscle-building and heart-pumping workouts. But before a person is allowed to start, a heart rate monitor will be attached to his chest.

As he does his workout, his name and heart rate zone, categorized by color, will be projected onto a screen on the wall. Red is the high limit, green is moderate, and blue is the cool down/warm-up zone.

Rating: 8/10

Based on a press release issued by Orange Fitness in September 23, 2013, its number of franchises around the world has grown to 165 locations. Considering that it only started in March, 2010, this is quite an achievement.

The robust growth of this fitness gym is not only due to its effective exercise programs, but also due to the support that the parent company gives to its franchisees in terms of field training, personal trainer recruitment and the high quality of their facilities.

Most of the gyms of Orange Fitness are clean although some are not. It all depends on the owner or the franchisee. But one of the things that Orange Fitness requires their franchisees is to maintain the cleanliness of their facilities.

Each franchisee is required to have a dedicated crew that is tasked to keep the facilities clean and tidy as a part of the franchise agreement.

Workout Machine Maintenance

Rating: 8/10

An Orange Fitness gym is also required to have a maintenance team to keep their gym equipment 100 per cent functional. Thus a gym member can expect that whatever gym equipment he uses, or whatever weight that he picks up are well-maintained and safe to use.

Safety is of prime importance in Orange Fitness that is why their maintenance crew is always on the lookout for devices and equipment that are not in tip-top shape. Any malfunctioning device is replaced at once in order to prevent accidents.

  1. I am surprised at the 8/10 rating for Locker Room and Shower. It should be 1 out of 10. I received as a Christmas gift a 2 month membership to a local Orange Theory center in Carlsbad, CA and am disappointed with the amenities. While the workout is great, there is no locker room. It has 2 shower stalls at the entrance that you have to sign up for right before you start your class…and good luck if others sign up, as you have to wait your return. And since no locker room, you need to keep your clothes in the car. For the price of the membership, it’s not acceptable…so needles to say, I will not be renewing the membership.
