THE THEORY BEHIND

Our Workout

Yes, we’re a workout that’s backed by science, but what does that really mean for you? It means RESULTS.

Before creating the Orangetheory workout, Ellen Latham ran her own Pilates studio, but noticed her clients were still working with personal trainers. They wanted to burn fat, which Pilates alone couldn’t do.

Ellen developed a workout that would “metabolically charge the body,” and the Orangetheory workout was born.

THE AFTERBURN

Orangetheory is based on the science of EPOC, excess post-exercise oxygen consumption. If you challenge your body at the right intensity, your body will work harder to recover oxygen lost during exercise. This revs your metabolism and makes you burn calories long after your workout is over.

WHAT IS THE ORANGE ZONE?

The Orangetheory workout comprises five heart rate zones based on your individual heart rate. Our workouts are strategically designed so you spend at least 12 minutes or more in the Orange Zone to get your heart rate between 84 to 91% of your unique heart rate maximum. When your heart rate is elevated, you’ll start to see and feel real changes in your body.

How Orangetheory Makes You Healthier

It’s a known truth that exercise is good for you, and we champion all forms of exercise. But science suggests you maximize the benefits when you get your heart rate up. That’s why we call Orangetheory the multivitamin — it’s a full body workout that changes the body from inside out.

Just What the Doctor Ordered

You might say that an Orangetheory class a day keeps the doctor away! Check out Ellen Latham’s appearance on The Doctors, where she talks with the team about the benefits of the workout, including how Orangetheory helps slow cellular decline as we age.
